Thanks, Dennis.

Curved sensor?

 

Wonder if that will fly just like Curved 3D TV's?

 

That is my first thought.

 

However, if light curves nicely to match the sensor and you get better images.... GO NIKON!

 

Now, I will read the article! :lol:

Very cool.  Could be breakthrough technology!  Sounds exciting.

Interesting


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

The problem with digital and film was the ability for film to capture light at angles, and it really didn't matter the timing of light, like red is slower than green. Digital could only capture light if it's straight on. Then they came up with micro lenses to help correct the issue. Curving the sensor with make it capture light properly.

Well, I hope they can exploit that into a successful line of cameras!

Well it should be easier to get an image sharp edge to edge and perhaps less light fall-off... But would we need to view the print on a curved plane .  or screen...? :rolleyes: After a quick glance at the article..they question whether this would be for a mirrorless or mirrored body.... I think the short distance lens to sensor available in a mirrorless design would be advantaged by a curved sensor... and matching lens. Oh no.... that would mean non backward compatibility of current lenses.

Or, maybe they are going for medium format mirror less. Again, still waiting.

Maybe it's another reason they've been silent in the mirrorless dept. Patent this new technology then go mirrorless and bury the competition in regards to the overall quality of the image. Just a theory.

This causes me to ask the question: If the sensors are curved to match the optics of the lenses, then doesn't the image still have to be flattened for printing or viewing on a standard screen?  I know that there can be algorithms for the adjustment in the photo editor, but doesn't it make more sense to accommodate flattening the image in the exposure process, rather than later, in the editing process?

 

Another question is how do you accommodate for differing lens geometry, say from wide angle, to mid-range, to telephoto?  Would a curved sensor with a single concave surface handle the varying lenses' light transmission capabilities?


Best,

Dennis
