The Canon MS-500 is the first advanced long-range low-light camera from Canon, which was developed for viewing remote objects at a distance of several miles in color – day or night. This camera is equipped with the ultra-high-sensitivity Single-Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) sensor and the B4 mount that can support Canon broadcast lenses, enabling capture of long-range objects even in low light.
The SPAD sensor captures the brightness of a subject by digitally counting each incoming light particle (photon) through a method called photon counting, which is thoroughly different from the conventional CMOS sensor.
Here are some of the specifications and features of the Canon MS-500:
- Long-range ultra-high-sensitivity low-light camera
- Features the Canon-designed and developed 1-inch Single-Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) Sensor with approx. 3.2 million pixels
- B4 mount that supports Canon’s lineup of ultra-telephoto 2/3-inch broadcast zoom lenses
- The CrispImg2 Custom Picture Preset optimizes resolution and contrast while suppressing image noise
- Custom Picture Mode allows users to create up to 20 customized image quality settings for various shooting conditions
- Haze Compensation and Smart Shade Control features reduce the effects of haze and mist while automatically adjusting contrast and image brightness
