Impressive Canon ultra-high ISO full-frame sensor footage shot in complete darkness

Canon EXPO Paris posted a video showcasing the impressive performance of Canon’s prototype ISO 4.5M full-frame sensor. The Canon ME20F-SH camera is used to film glowworms in Waitomo Glowworm Caves in New Zealand. The glowworms are normally not visible to the humans eye. A comparison with a Canon professional HD camera is made (at 1:32, possibly Canon XA25), and the difference gets you an idea about how impressing the Canon ME20F-SH performance is. The professional HD camera sees only a light fluorescence when set to the highest gain (30db) while the ME20F-SH is able to get a clear image. It gets even more impressing. At 2:13 the ME20F-SH is used to shoot the glowworms in complete darkness. The video ends with video footage of the milky way
