Canon patent a new viewfinder for professional DSLRs that features magnification ratio of 0.82X. Let me know you that the 5D Mark IV viewfinder features magnification ratio of 0.71X and the Canon 1DX Mark II features magnification ratio of 0.76X.
As we all know that viewfinder is the most important user interface of the DSLR camera. Now let’s know what is magnification ratio in DSLR camera ?. It generally refers to how big the viewfinder image appears, for example a theoretically perfect viewfinder will have 1X magnification ratio.
1X is the size of things appear when you look them with your eye. Now if your Camera, say Canon 1DX Mark II have 0.76X magnification ratio makes things appear to be approx three-quarters the size they look to be with your naked eye. And to be clear 0.82X is better than 0.76X.
Here is the patent details

Canon 120MP DSLR shown at Canon EXPO is not coming anytime soon, according to latest rumors floating over Canon 120MP DSLR at least 2 years away from now.
The sources of the same website added that Canon is also accelerating its lens development projects and we will sure see new lenses /older lens replacements coming in next few months.
Canon 120MP DSLR image show above is just a prototype, as you already know that the sensor inside body is of APS-H size.
The camera shown at EXPO was limited to ISO 100 only. The 120 Megapixel image-file contains enormous amount of data and the size of single image is 210 MB, you need to upgrade your hard drives and back-up before buy the camera. The biggest question is does this camera will be termed as the successor of flagship 5DS/R or a new megapixel-monster series is coming from Canon with APS-H sensor.
In general I have a habit of too see incremental upgrades from Canon, I don’t expect a after 50MP 5DS/R camera Canon will announce a 120MP based APS-H sensor 5DS Mark II camera.
We have to wait and see.
