- 21MP full-frame sensor (6.4um)
- Global shutter
- 120dB dynamic range (This translates to 20stops of dynamic range)
- 120 fps
- The image sensor may be based on the 2/3″ sensor shown for ISSC 2017.
The recently released Canon EOS-1D X Mark III only features a 20.1MP sensor, so there will be a very slight bump (0.9MP increase) on the image megapixel counts. One of the prototypes of Canon EOS R1 is rumored to have 6K video shooting capabilities. If the Canon EOS R1 can shoot regular 6K (6144 x 3160 pixels) video, then the camera will need at least a 3:2 ratio 6144 x 4096 (25.17 million) pixel image sensor.
So, it is almost confirmed that the Canon EOS R1 camera will NOT continue to use the 20.1 megapixel sensor of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III flagship SLR camera.
