Newly developed 4K (DCI/QFHD) 8.85-megapixel sensor and Wider Dynamic Range of 15 Stops
Canon has developed a new sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum 4096 x 2160 resolution, producing footages with high image quality. Also, 2K/HD recording (Over Sampling HD processing) that utilizes the information yielded from the 4K sensor to the full more than satisfactorily supports multi-purpose production needs. When users have selected the Canon Log 2 gamma, the dynamic range changes from 200% to 1600% when ISO 100 to ISO 800 is selected, and a wide dynamic range of 1600% is achieved for ISO800 at the base sensitivity and higher. This enables the details of the highlights and shadows to be adjusted, and it extends the scope of color grading.
