Another special feature is UltraMax--a superresolution facility that quadruples the pixel count to 3.
On the image quality front, Apple introduced image sensor improvements, including a 50% increase in pixel count to 12MP.
Canon goes on to explain that with CMOS sensors, increases in pixel count result in increased signal volume, which can cause problems such as signal delays, discrepancies in timing and sensor noise.
