Canon ME20F-SH Ultra High Sensitivity Camera Footage

Canon ME20F-SH Ultra High Sensitivity Camera

Canon announced the Ultra High Sensitivity Camera - ME20F-SH on July 20, 2015. It has a super-sensitive full-HD 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor inside a small form factor body. The new camera can record color images in near-complete darkness, while its cubic chassis can be placed unobtrusively on set or in the wild. While the sensor is only 2.2 megapixels (effective) in resolution, each pixel measures 19 microns, making it more than 7.5 times larger than an equivalent 18.1 megapixel 35mm full-frame sensor. This large pixel size allows the sensor to gather much more light in all situations. This helps images taken in low-light situations maintain a low noise floor for cleaner and more vivid video.

The rugged body is almost square in configuration and features multiple mounting points for discreet placement. The camera can capture images at up to ISO 4,000,000. Its low-light capability makes the camera ideal for wildlife documentaries, security and law enforcement purposes.

The Canon comes with the EF mount and is fully compatible with the entire EF line of lenses, including the CN-E lenses with electronic communication. EF-S and Cine Servo zoom lenses are also compatible when used in the cropped mode. The camera sends 1080p video at up to 60 fps out from its 3G-SDI and HDMI terminals. One SDI terminal and the HDMI terminal can be programmed to include onscreen display information for camera operation. The camera settings can be adjusted using the on-camera controls or via a remote control connected with the 2.5mm jack or the RS-422 terminal.

You can see a HD video of the camera in action from Canon Japan. This is an amazing video to watch. The camera retails for about $30,000 in the United States and some dealers will be taking pre-orders soon.
