Last year Phase One Industrial announced a camera for drones that uses a 100-megapixel medium format sensor and can be equipped with different lenses. Now, a new Sony sensor leaked today with a 100MP back-illuminated (BSI) sensor, something which is already used in the Phase One XM photography drone and the Phase One XF camera.

IMX555CQR is the code name for an upcoming Sony sensor leaked today. It’s a 100-megapixel full-frame sensor for the consumer cameras that are to be available to other manufacturers as well. A pixel binning mode is offered for 12bit 6K video with a single high-speed digital readout for 16-bit stills.

Sony appears to use a novel method with the latest leaked sensor for a high-speed readout, given the amount of data on the chip. However, as the leak renders, Sony will be the first to release a 35mm full-frame 100MP sensor with 6K video recording capabilities.

The document stills from the sensor with a high 12288 x 8192 resolution. It appears to be not one but two A/D converters per column. That’s an enormous number of A/D converters to create the high-speed digital output of the sensor. It is speculated that in the past, it’s possible that Sony had to compromise color depth or accuracy to achieve such high-speed digital readouts.

As the leak of the source, the cinema 4K resolution of 4096 pixels horizontally divides perfectly by 3 into the 12288-pixel resolution of this sensor with 3 x 3 color-aware.

Sony seems to be extending an absolutely high lead over Canon in CMOS sensors. The company will make this sensor available to use in consumer cameras.
