World’s Largest CMOS Sensor

Canon's has made the largest CMOS sensor which measures 202 x 205 mm about eight inches square.
APS-H CMOS sensor that delivers a staggering 120 megapixels at 60fps.

The Schmidt telescope at the University of Tokyo's Kiso Observatory now employs it to records faint meteors in the night sky.
The sensor already only requires 1/100th of the light as current sensors need.

Canon ultra-large-scale, ultra-high-sensitivity CMOS sensor makes possible wide field-of-view video recording of meteors with equivalent apparent magnitude of 10
