Kodak develop new sensor technologyThe new technology, that will increase the sensitivity of sensors, could reduce shutter speed therefore putting an end to camera shake, motion blur and noise problems, as well as allowing better performance in low light conditions.

"We have a new technology for how to manufacture image sensors in a way that increases the sensitivity of the device to light by two to four times what's available today," says Mike DeLuca, Eastman Kodak market segment manager for professional and applied imaging. "We absolutely feel there is a big opportunity for this...to become a new standard in the industry and we really want to propagate this out as far as the market feels it should be taken."

The technology, which can be applied to existing sensors, reflects how the human eye works, registering colour and brightness separately and devoting more pixels to brightness where the human eye is sensitive to detail. Light sensitivity had become a problem of late with higher mega pixel counts increasing noise levels in image sensors and the new technology could put an end to that.

Kodak are planning to firstly apply the technology to build the technology into their own sensors, then offer it to other companies to use in their own products.

"We will engage in conversations with other companies as appropriate," said DeLuca.

doesn't seem that way.

looks very interesting, but if it can be applied to all existing sensors, does that mean that it is just another software gimmick?

No it didn't mean added to cameras already out there, it meant the existing CCD technology could have it added without any large scale redesigns, for new cameras.

...except the interpolation algorithms!! Wink

From what I've heard this drastically reduces the amount of colour information recorded. It will be interesting to see how the trade-off pans out.

should make for a good B&W sensor then! Smile
