Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Samsung NX1 - FF level quality in an APS-C?? Imaging Resource samples...« on: December 20, 2014, 04:50:44 PM »
I think BSI more about increasing the full well capacity rather than just preventing light from seeping between pixels.Have to admit I was surprised that BSI is just now arriving at this level of sensor - my naivety - assumed it would have been here long ago.
My presumption was that gapless microlenses were supposed to make BSI unnecessary, but perhaps there's some marginal improvement using both.
Maybe one of our resident EE's can answer this question.
Hmmm...I'd like to hear more explanation of this: I had thought that fwc was not strongly dependent on the surface area.
