Canon the patent of 100x zoom capability for cameras




Canon has reportedly applied for a patent on a system, which can zoom in a handy camera to a hundred times. If the manufacturer actually release a camera with the system exceeds the Nikon, currently a camera with 83x zoom is on the shelves.

The patent mentions a 1 / 3.2 “sensor. The lens has a focal length of 24-2400mm in full frame equivalent, writes the Japanese Egami based application that does not seem available online. Currently sells Canon PowerShot SX60 with 65x zoom. This is since last autumn in the shop. Therefore it is not obvious that any ‘SX70’ with 100x zoom will appear soon.

Competitor Nikon currently sells the CoolPix P900 , which may increase the most with 83x zoom objects. It seems that both manufacturers want to trump each other at this point. It is not the first of the Canon patent for a system to zoom in 100x, but so far there is no camera appeared with any of the two systems.
