Canon 250MP sensor makes sci-fi surveillance an “enhanced” reality

Today Canon revealed a 250MP image sensor that'd make Along Game a Spider, Stargate, and Blade Runner feel vindicated at last. While this new sensor isn't quite able to see around corners, it's massive enough to allow users to zoom in, then in again, then in again - much like you'd see happen in a science fiction film or investigative drama TV show in the 1990's and early 2000s. This new Canon image sensor is made for archival and surveillance camera purposes.

We've known for a while now that Canon plans to launch a variety of unusual cameras that will target markets underserved by smartphones, which have largely decimated the point-and-shoot digital camera market.

Canon cameras can upload directly to Google Photos with a catch

Rocket Lab prepares to launch a Canon camera microsatellite into orbit

You're probably familiar with Canon's consumer camera products -- its fixed-lens models and DSLRs, for example -- but lesser-known is the company's work on micro-satellites.
