New Sensor Technology!

Posted by DigitalDarrell, 22 January 2007 · 1170 views

The other day I read somewhere about a new type of sensor. They take special small crystals of some light sensitive grains and put them in a layered acetate base. The cool thing about this new sensor is that it replaces itself on each shot, so there's no need to worry about dust spots.

The new cameras actually take a roll of these sensors and move them across the focal plane with each shot. It is sooo cool, because they devote one whole sensor to each image. Talk about luxury. But wait, there's more. With these sensors, there is no blur filter, so sharpness is a given.

Each of the sensors contain about 25 megapixels. Plus, since the sensors are loadable, the new camera bodies are much less costly to build, and last longer. I hear they have no heat buildup AMP noise at all.

And, finally, the best thing about the new sensors is that each one of them is Full-Frame (FF) so your older lenses work like they ought used to.

I was completely amazed to hear that the sensor replacement rolls would sell for something like $4.50 USD. I can't understand how they could cram this much technology into such a small place!

They guy that invented this new sensor technology is a real genius. Do you think it will catch on? laugh.gif

Keep on capturing time...
