Japanese camera maker Canon has launched its ME20F-SH multi-purpose camera, which touts a magnificent ability of capturing full HD color videos in extreme low lights – and how that is possible; well the video camera boasts of incredible 4,000,000 ISO. The black, cube-shaped came features 2.26MP CMOS sensor, which has 5.5-times better pixel density than a high-end DSLR out there. The cinema camera, thanks to its ultra-superior, low light sensitivity sensor, can record 1080p videos in full color in near-darkness, and can also capture moments in wide dynamic range.

The ME20F-SH, as DPReview puts it, has ‘virtually every port imaginable’, which includes support for 3G/HD-SDI, HDMI, 2.5mm mini-jack, a 3.5mm stereo jack and 8-pin RS-422 port. ME20F-SH comes with EF and EF-S lenses and makes an ideal choice for filmmakers, specialist photographers or for others who needs a camera to shoot for TV or for documentaries in the dimmest conditions.


Albeit it’s priced a tad higher at $30,000, for all the coolness that it brings to low light shooting with ISO of 4 million it deserves a serious thought. You have until December to decide.
