Nikkei: A long time Canon research project, the full-frame 2MP sensor with 19um pixels, has been finally released into production. The new 35MMFHDXSCA is targeted at astronomical observation, monitoring of a natural disaster, industrial use, etc.

One of the features of the new sensor is a reduced dark current at low temperature: "By devising the driving method of the peripheral circuit, this product realizes reduction of dark current noise that still occurs even in low temperature condition. This makes it possible to use it for astronomical observation of a star with a slight brightness on the order of 10 stars and so on."
