Canon has released the ME20F-SH multi-purpose camera capable of an ISO rating of over 4,000,000. That’s right, a freaking 4 million! In short, it can basically let you shoot in near total-darkness.

The 35mm full-frame sensor can shoot Full HD video with subjects illuminated with nothing more than 0.005lux of light at its maximum ISO setting. This is dimmer than what you’d get on a overcast, moonless night with airglow (0.002 lux). The secret to this night vision capability is the 2.26MP CMOS sensor’s huge 19μm pixels—5.5x larger than what’s found on a high-end DSLR.

The camera accepts EF and EF-S lenses with autofocus, and has a built-in IR block and ND filters, both of which can be disabled if required. Being a professional camera, it supports Canon Log and Wide DR modes for maximising the dynamic range of your footage.

All these does not come cheap of course. You can pick up this baby in December this year for a cool US$30,000.
