This is a great news for people who would like to shoot video at extreme low light.  Actually the camera can see more light than your eye. It’s been said in canon’s newsletter that the camera can record video at an illumination of less than 0.0005 lux level. 0.0005 lux level is equal to a moonless overcast night.


Quick specifications

Pixels – 2.26 megapixels on a full frame CMOS sensor

Pixel pitch at – 19 Microns

Lens mount – – EF series

Weight & Size – 1.1 Kg without lens and approximate to a 100 mm cube


Practically put up, you can record video even when your eyes can’t see anything, canon website stating that one can record video with a help of crescent moon and they have made a test video with only the help of incense sticks light. Share the video’s link if you come across.!

The camera’s full specifications can be seen here in Canon USA website. Earlier, nightlife in wild been recorded by the help of infra red technology which gives video output in Black & white only. This camera would change it, more nightlife about wild creatures would be revealed with the help of this camera.
