It seems Canon has made another visit to the Japanese patent office by submitting two new applications that would see a new HDR design for its camera sensors.

Just last week we wrote about Canon's new patent application for a tilting viewfinder, which would introduce a tilting EVF to the best Canon cameras. Canon has now submitted two new patent applications that will see a new configuration of its sensors, improving the dynamic range.
