Patent: Quad Pixel AF and a Hybrd DSLR

Now this is a pretty interesting patent uncovered by Canon News. who calls it “an intense patent”, and understanding all of the nuances of it is quite difficult.

Firstly, the patent deals with multiple parallax images for computational photography, and it clearly shows Quad Pixel AF sensors and the problems that 4 composite images have on the final image.

Secondly, the example diagram clearly shows a DSLR with an EVF.

Canon News has previously uncovered 3 other patents that mention Quad Pixel AF, you can see them here, here and here.
