Canon USA has published a new white paper touting the advantages of the sensor size employed in the company's EOS-1Ds, EOS-1Ds Mark II and EOS 5D digital SLRs. Called Canon's Full-Frame CMOS Sensors: The Finest Tools for Digital Photography, the 30-page document examines what Canon perceives to be the advantages of 35mm film frame-size sensors, discusses some of the manufacturing considerations and provides a brief history of Canon sensor development.
Like previous Canon USA digital SLR-related white papers, this one contains reams of detailed technical information intermingled with a healthy dollop of marketing-speak. For us, it added up to an interesting read. As of this writing, the white paper isn't available for download on a Canon web site. Canon USA, however, has granted us permission to host it here.
