Olympus Medical develops capsule camera technology

Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-02 14:18:02
Olympus Medical Systems Corporation has developed key technologies, centered on "Capsule guidance system" and "Wireless power supply system", for capsule endoscopes to be used in all parts of the gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, the stomach and the colon. Olympus has always believed it is essential to equip capsule endoscopes with functions that enable them to be freely operated within the gastrointestinal tract without batteries, just like today's gastrointestinal endoscopes. It continues development work on the associated necessary technologies for treatment and diagnosis, as well as observation. Olympus has developed various fiberscopes and videoscopes since it unveiled the first practical gastrocamera in 1950.

Innovation prize for Super CCD SR from Fujifilm

Dennis Hissink : 2004-10-20 08:25:54
The coveted innovation prize from the editorial team of Color Foto will be awarded to Fujifilm this year, the prize was awarded for the unique SR image sensor, which ensures a substantially greater dynamic range in digital cameras. The initials SR stand for Sensitivity Range, thus for high sensitivity with a substantially extended dynamic scope. That means that when these digital cameras are used for high contrast motifs one to four times as much dynamic scope can be achieved. This was made possible by the special structure of the Super CCD SR, which has both high sensitivity and low sensitivity pixels. SR-Sensor for high contrast imagesThe Super CCD SR has two different pixel groups: Larger, particularly sensitive S-pixels.

CASIO develops transparent ceramic lens

Dennis Hissink : 2004-08-06 10:21:39
Using its proprietary optical technology, Casio has developed the world's first lens using transparent ceramics. This breakthrough will make it possible to create zoom lenses for cameras with greatly reduced profiles. Ever since Casio's EXILIM thin card-size digital camera went on sale, the entire digital camera market has undergone a huge change. Compact digital cameras offering mobility in a small package have become mainstream, while there has been a major push in technological development to find better methods of creating smaller, thinner cameras. Casio is continuing to take the lead in this field by creating the world's first transparent ceramic lens using LUMICERA, a transparent ceramic developed by Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
