Sharp introduces new 6 Megapixels CCD sensor


Dennis Hissink : 2003-12-17 12:05:51
First caught by Phil Askey from DPReview we can bring you some more information about a new sensor Sharp is introducing today. In the upcoming weeks we will see some new camera introductions that will take place just before and during the CES show in Las Vegas (8-11 January 2004). If Sharp is going to provide their new 1/1.8-inch 6 Megapixels sensors we don't know yet, but 2004 seems to gonna be the year of high, higher and highest resolutions! The new Sharp sensor is called RJ21T3AA0PT/ST and will be mass-produced in January 2004. The size of this sensor ensures an easy upgrade from the existing 5 Megapixels cameras into a 6 Megapixels one. The resolution of this new 1/1.8-inch 6 Megapixels sensor will be 2934x2167 pixels.


Sony develops Full-Circle 360° Camera Module


Dennis Hissink : 2003-12-10 00:10:23
Until now, taking a 360° panorama with a normal lens has required taking multiple shots while rotating the camera slowly and then combining ("stitching") those shots together to form the panorama. In contrast, the 360° full-circle lens allows the full 360° surroundings of the camera to be imaged at the same time with a single lens. Sony has now developed a camera module that uses this 360° full-circle lens, and is releasing as commercial products both a camera module that uses a 380K-pixel, 30 fps CCD that outputs a ring-shaped image as a composite video signal as well as a high-resolution camera module that uses a 1.28 MP, 7.5 fps CCD with a built-in panorama expansion processing function.

Dennis Hissink : 2003-10-05 01:50:20
Sharp Corporation announced the development of a new LCD module featuring ultra-wide viewing that enables clear display of images seen from all angles, making it ideal for use in mobile devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, and digital still cameras. Leveraging the company's proprietary mobile Advanced Super View LCD technology to provide a wide viewing angle, high contrast, and quick response, the module is slated to be sample shipped starting in December 2003, with volume production to begin next spring. At this moment it is not known which camera brand will use this new Wide-Angle Viewing LCD module. Maybe the upcoming events like PMA 2004 and CeBIT 2004 will give us some new cameras with this new LCD built-in.


Fujifilm Super CCD SR - Explanation of operation


Dennis Hissink : 2003-09-28 10:58:06
This year Fujifilm introduced their 4th generation Super CCD sensors. One of these sensors, the Super CCD SR is found in the FinePix F700 camera. The strongness of the operating CCD SR is not random, but varies according to the contrast range. It is easy to understand if you think of sunglasses with coloured glasses. At dark or normal light conditions, the glasses stay clear and you can see everything perfectly. But in brighter sunshine, the colour correction of the glasses becomes stronger. You can see this phenomenon very well by looking at a bright shiny cloudy sky with and without sunglasses. This difference is also noticeable on the pictures made by the Fujifilm FinePix F700 compared to a camera equipped with a normal CCD.

Sony LD Shot Ink Trajectory Control technology


Dennis Hissink : 2003-08-14 13:54:28
Sony Corporation today announced the development of LD Shot (Lateral Deflection Shot) ink trajectory control technology that, when used in conjunction with Line Head method inkjet printing, enables near photograph quality images to be printed in as quick as six seconds. Having already introduced a lineup of dye sublimation printers, Sony aims to further enhance its standing in the growing printer market by using LD Shot technology to facilitate the development of a Line Head inkjet printer for practical use. With continuing advancement in digital still camera technology and resulting increased quality of photographed images, printer capabilities have also developed to a level where near photograph quality printouts can now be realized.


Sony unveils new 4-color filter CCD


Dennis Hissink : 2003-08-14 10:29:18
Sony Corporation today announced the world's first practical consumer (home) use of CCD with 4-color (Red ,Green , Blue and Emerald) filters, together with a new image processor corresponding to the 4-color filter. By this technology, the color reproduction error is halved compared to Sony's conventional 3-primary-color filter CCD and, expression of images closer to the natural sight perception of the human eye is achieved under various shooting conditions. Conventional digital still cameras mainly use 3-primary-color filter CCD, and the colors are recorded by the intensity of each of the 3 colors, Red(R), Green(G) and Blue(B), corresponding to the color reproduction characteristics of the color TV or monitors.
