Canon Working on 4/3 Format Sensor and 12-385mm F1.8-4.0 Lens

TheNewCamera Exclusive – Yes, Canon is working on 4/3 format sensor as well as 12-385mm F1.8-4.0 Lens for its upcoming camcorder.

This particular patent silently confirms that Canon is also somehow joining the 4/3 format race.  I personally think, instead of working on a single camcorder they should announce a 4/3 format based mirrorless series to compete against Panasonic and Olympus.

Take, a look look at the patent details below
