HD CMOS PRO sensor, DIGIC DV 4
With an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels, the new HD CMOS PRO sensor – designed and manufactured by Canon for its professional models – delivers stunning picture quality, even in low light, as well as wide dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction. The new powerful DIGIC DV 4 image processor works with the sensor to provide images with lower noise and more depth.
