Canon Global Shutter Sensor Paper
« on: December 11, 2017, 11:40:06 AM »
From Image Sensors World:

MDPI Special Issue on the 2017 International Image Sensor Workshop (IISW) publishes Canon paper “Development of Gentle Slope Light Guide Structure in a 3.4 μm Pixel Pitch Global Shutter CMOS Image Sensor with Multiple Accumulation Shutter Technology” by Hiroshi Sekine, Masahiro Kobayashi, Yusuke Onuki, Kazunari Kawabata, Toshiki Tsuboi, Yasushi Matsuno, Hidekazu Takahashi, Shunsuke Inoue, and Takeshi Ichikawa.

From the paper:

CISs with GS function have generally been inferior to the rolling shutter (RS) CIS in performance, because they have more components. This problem is remarkable in small pixel pitch. The newly developed 3.4 µm pitch GS CIS solves this problem by using multiple accumulation shutter technology and the gentle slope light guide structure. As a result, the developed GS pixel achieves 1.8 e− temporal noise and 16,200 e− full well capacity with charge domain memory in 120 fps operation. The sensitivity and parasitic light sensitivity are 28,000 e−/lx·s and −89 dB, respectively. Moreover, the incident light angle dependence of sensitivity and parasitic light sensitivity are improved by the gentle slope light guide structure.

From those who don't want to do the maths themselves, a 3.4um pitch sensor gives you:

APS-C : 29 megapixels
FF:  74 megapixels

Thanks. Can someone now also translate the whole text to simple english?

this is really only for video as it relies on more than one exposure to make up for the lack of pixel sensitivity.

I think it just means by 2019 or 2020 Canon will give you a very nice high-speed video camera for the price of a very large house.

This is what we needed to know.

they already do something similar in the C700.

As I understand it, Canon current C700 global shutter option costs 1 stop of dynamic range compared to the stock rolling shutter.  So, it seems that this new technology improves DR.

Wow!  That cleared things up for me for sure.  I am particularly psyched about the parasitic light sensitivity???@!?

Obviously lots of sarcasm, but we will see how it works out.

Hope it is good.

My 1DX II came close enough to a house cost, so no thanks.  If I had a wife when I bought it, I'd be divorced again I"m sure.

I got two 1DX MkII’s for a bit more than one 1DS MkIII cost...
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.
