Canon releases moonlit video footage using new sensor.

Just over a week ago, Canon released this press release announcing a brand new prototype; a 35mm CMOS sensor for video, that can record even faint stars and only requires the light of the full moon to capture a scene. Yes, feel free to reread that. Can this really surpass the human eye? No word on dynamic range yet but I think humanity is still superior in that regard – for now…

‘The sensor facilitates the shooting of clearly visible video images even in dimly lit environments with as little as 0.03 lux of illumination, or approximately the brightness of a crescent moon.’ — Canon Inc.
