Canon is one of the relatively few manufacturers that develops its own sensors. This means that they're in a great position to create new sensors with new capabilities, and that's just what they've done with their new 35mm Full Frame CMOS sensor for video capture

How to understand Dynamic Range

Camera performance is now measured as much in terms of Dynamic Range as Resolution. Phil Rhodes explains this essential aspect of camera technology

Most large-sensor cameras use a Bayer colour filter pattern to allow full colour images to be output - after "debayering". This entire process is now pretty routine but unfortunately what is also routine is the amount of light lost through the colour filter process. Less light means more noise, and noise is what ultimately limits the low-light capabilities all cameras

If you use a professional digital camera, you can't go far without understanding the relationship between sensors, lenses and depth of field. It's slightly more complicated than you might have thought!. Phil Rhodes makes it understandable
