Brings Live View AF up to par with Viewfinder Shooting
With each pixel composed of two independent photodiodes, two images with different phases are obtained using the signals acquired from both the left and right photodiodes. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF uses these two images to perform phase-difference detection AF. This achieves a focus speed equivalent to shooting using the optical viewfinder in an area that covers 80% of the vertical and 80% of the horizontal view during Live View shooting and video recording.
Compatible Models: 1D X II, 5D IV, 6D II, 7D II, 80D, 77D, 800D, 200D, M6, M5, M100, M50, PowerShot G1 X Mark III
1: All pixels are made up of two independent photodiodes.
2: Obtains image from the left photodiode in all the pixels.
3: Also obtains image from the right photodiode. Two images with different phases are obtained from the left and right photodiodes.
4: Outputs electric charge as one pixel during shooting by combining the signals from the two photodiodes.
