New Sensor Tech
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:13:16 AM »
Hey all I just stumbled across this over on gizmodo.  It is a new organic sensor in development which claims to have greatly improved DR and light sensitivity.

Most of you have probably already heard about it, but enjoy all the same.

I wonder why they don't release full size stills.

You missed out 5 year old CMOS tech from Canon...

I hope Canon can License this stuff from Panuji. 29 stops of DR? There goes the re-sale of the D800...

I can read, I'm sure that it takes photos larger than 200 pixels.

But then you'd be able to spot all the little gremlins at work fixing the shady parts....

Interesting, but calculations don't amount to much more than theory.  How it actually measures is another matter.

If I only had a dollar for every claimed breakthrough that never makes it to the market.
 
It would be great to have such a device, but I'm not going to stop buying cameras for the next XX years while they figure out how to actually make it.
 
How long ago did Black Silicon claim to be the next new thing?  First developed back in the 1980's, and we still do not see DSLR's using it.  They put out a new press release every few years with wonderful claims, hoping to snag more money from investors.
