Canon has announced the latest generation multi-purpose cameras, the ML-100 and ML-105, that can reach an astonishing ISO 4,500.00 to capture amazingly detailed color photos and videos in extreme environments. dark.
Recently, we haven’t heard a lot from Canon when it comes to its all-in-one cameras. The last major announcement we have on file is in 2015 with the ME20-F SH. Not long after, we saw a number of images created with that camera. Next year we actually have to see some videos that the camera can shoot in almost complete darkness.
Now, four years later, Canon has announced the next generation of its versatile low-light cameras, and the ML-100 and ML-105 offer an amazingly high sensitivity for recording Full HD Color video with projection. Minimum subject brightness below 0.0005 lux (at 75 dB maximum gain setting, equivalent to ISO sensitivity above 4,500,000). With the ability to capture color images in low light, these versatile cameras can be used in industrial system designs, where Canon says viewing color images is important during the day and day. night.
While the ISO performance doesn’t exceed the numbers we’ve seen in previous multi-function cameras, Canon says these two new models use the next-generation 19um, 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor.
What moves with the ML-100 is 12-bit RAW data output at up to 73 fps when connected to a CoaXpress terminal. The ML-100 has a maximum video output of about 2.74 million pixels and supports Favorites Zone, which can improve the output frame rate up to 164 fps at 720p resolution.
The ML-105 has a 3G / HD-SDI video terminal and can output 10-bit YCC 4: 2: 2 video. The ML-105 has an older Canon DIGIC DV4 Image Processor that only has resolution processing capabilities Full HD resolution at 60 fps but good enough for the camera’s designed purposes. The DIGIC DV4 processor is the same processor used in the ME20-F SH.
It is not clear based on the information provided if the camera’s image quality has been greatly improved or the new models are simply better designed to make operation in many applications easier.
Both cameras are available with an EF or M58 mount. The M58 mount version of the Canon ML-100 multi-function camera is expected to be available in the market by the end of December 2020, while the ML-100 in the EF, the ML-105 in the M58 and the ML-105 at the EF are Scheduling will be available April 2021. No prices were offered at the time of announcement. However, given the final model’s price tag of $ 30,000, we can expect a similar asking price for the ML-100 or ML-105.
