Canon's EOS R3 marked a transformative moment in the company's journey, introducing its first-ever stacked sensor and re-establishing its competitive edge against rivals such as Sony. Now, signs point to Canon extending this revolutionary technology to a broader range of cameras in the near future.
Insiders at Canon Rumors suggest that the tech giant is in the process of developing three distinct camera models, all featuring the advanced stacked sensor technology. Introduced in the EOS R3, these sensors offer a plethora of benefits that are likely to be featured in upcoming high-end models. These advantages encompass:
- Accelerated data readout, minimizing rolling shutter effects in video and high-speed photography
- Enhanced resolution without compromising video output quality
- Elevated burst shooting capabilities
- Superior dynamic range performance
- The potential to forgo traditional mechanical shutters, as seen in Nikon’s Z8 and Z9 models
It's highly probable that Canon's future flagship model, the EOS R1, will incorporate a stacked sensor. Speculation also leans towards the EOS R5 Mark II and a new offering in the Cinema series being the first in line to adopt this game-changing technology. While it remains uncertain whether Canon will choose to remove physical shutters, the innovation has garnered positive reviews in Nikon’s latest models. Regardless, the industry is eagerly anticipating Canon's forthcoming advancements in sensor technology. We can expect to witness more cameras equipped with these innovative sensors in the near term.
