There are a number of patents from many camera companies for interchangeable sensors, but so far, the idea has been impractical simply because new technology requires additional connections and electronic speeds that were not foreseen two or three years earlier, and getting tied to out of date technology isn't something engineers want to do.
Right now, many sensors are switching to 8 channel readouts, what will be have in 3 years? 12, 14, or 16 channel, and what speeds? The motherboard and processor tie you down to todays technology pretty well. It also ties down any improvements in autofocus, video, or nr among other things.
Its not really such a good idea when you think about how much it shackles you to obsolete technology..
Its hard to believe that we will see practical interchangeable sensors unless its just for easy replacement of a damaged part.
+ 100, Sir
Thanks for great Infor.
Yes, Where they build the Camera, They must Build in a clean room and Anti-static / control area with the clean cover all dress, and try to prevent the dust to go inside the camera bodies or Lenses. If we try to Change the Sensor in our home, Yes, Will be 1000 of the UFO. over the beautiful sky of our beautiful pictures.
Than you, Sir, Dear Mt Spokane Photography .
Have a great day, Sir.
PS. Plus the Camera company , want us to buy/ spend the money for the new camera body with the new sensor , for pay the cost of their new building too.
