Canon Says Higher Resolution Sensors Are Coming Soon from


DPReview has posted their interview with Masaya Maeda, the Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations at Canon. Mr Maeda touches on a lot of subjects, like the EOS 7D Mark II and why it took so long to hit the market. As well as higher megapixel sensors, mirrorless cameras and the fact that the Canon PowerShot G7 X doesn’t use a Canon sensor (It’s most likely from Sony).

Below is a snippet from the interview.

Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution? 
Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
