Examine DSLR sensor with Sensor Loupe

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-06-15 12:52:00
Examine DSLR sensor with Sensor LoupeT : VisibleDust, Inc. announces the launch of the new Brite Vue XLT based technology "Sensor LoupeT". The Sensor LoupeT is a product that is specifically made to examine the sensor of a DSLR. Dust is an inherent problem when it comes to DSLR's and poses many problems for any photographer. Image quality is degraded and many hours of editing must be carried out to retouch any pictures with expensive digital imaging software. Also it takes a lengthy process to determine if the sensor is actually dirty, taking test shots and examining them once again with expensive digital imaging software. This may not be practical when a photographer is out in the field.


Robust image sensor from Panasonic

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-05-25 16:23:00
Robust image sensor from Panasonic : Panasonic announced the development of a robust and lightfast image sensor for the next generation. Panasonic’s technological breakthrough allows a robust MOS image sensor for use under harsh sunlight for more than 20 years. Unlike traditional image sensors, the revolutionary MOS image sensor has digital-microlenses and photonic color filters, both made of inorganic materials that are inherently fade-resistant and quite robust. “We can make a significant contribution to our customers by creating new applications with this new sensor.” said Taku Gobara, Director of Corporate Application Specific Standard Products Division, Semiconductor Company, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.


Sony ultra high speed CMOS image sensor

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-05-13 21:45:00
Sony ultra high speed CMOS image sensor : Sony announced a high-speed / high-resolution CMOS sensor that can output 6.4-megapixel images at 60 frames-per-second. This sensor can also capture 6.4-megapixel high-resolution still images while recording video without interrupting the video recording. This sensor allows seemless imaging of both stills and video without the user needing to be aware of the boundary. This same sensor also supports even higher-speed capture - 300 frames-per-second - allowing users to capture moving images without missing any of the decisive moments that were previously impossible to capture. The IMX017CQE includes many of its peripheral circuits, including the horizontal and vertical drive circuits.


IBM prototype optical transceiver chipset

IBM prototype optical transceiver chipset : IBM scientists will reveal a prototype optical transceiver chipset capable of reaching speeds at least eight times faster than optical components available today. The breakthrough could transform how data is accessed, shared and used across the Web for corporate and consumer networks. The transceiver is fast enough to reduce the download time for a typical high definition feature-length film to a single second compared to 30 minutes or more. The ability to move information at blazing speeds of 160 Gigabits - or 160 billion bits of information in a single second - provides a glimpse of a new era of high-speed connectivity that will transform communications, computing and entertainment.


High dynamic range CameraChip sensor

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-04-04 23:03:00
High dynamic range CameraChip sensor : At the International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas, Nevada, OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading independent supplier of CMOS CameraChip image sensors for high-volume applications, introduced its first color High Dynamic Range CameraChip sensor for security market applications. The new single-chip OV10620 can provide security camera manufacturers significant cost savings over existing multi-chip CCD camera solutions with HDR capability as well as superior performance versus competing CMOS color HDR systems. HDR refers to an imaging system's ability to capture widely differing light levels in a single image and to rapidly adjust to often instantaneous changes in light levels.


Samsung CMOS image sensor

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-03-27 17:29:00
Samsung CMOS image sensor : Samsung Electronics announced an 8.4 megapixel (Mp) CMOS image sensor (CIS) with a 1.4 um pixel design at Samsung’s fourth annual Mobile Solution Forum. The new CIS chip provides a high signal to noise ratio (SNR), a key measure of overall image quality. Samsung achieved the high-resolution level by implementing advanced light sensing features and minimized noise levels. Notably, an extended photo diode technology was implemented to achieve higher light sensitivity and saturation levels, resulting in an enhanced fill factor. Furthermore, it provides the same image quality as the charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensors currently used in most digital cameras and camcorders.


Focus and Zoom technology

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-03-09 19:49:00
Focus and Zoom technology : Over the past ten years, photographic cameras have almost completely transitioned from silver halide film to electronic sensors. But the other key component - the lens - has remained largely unchanged... until now. The mobile phone industry, with its huge demand for embedded cameras, is driving a broad set of new requirements for miniaturized, rugged, low-cost, low-power, high-performance lens and actuator combinations. As they come to market, the superior value proposition of those optical assemblies will threaten to displace traditional optics in cameras of all types. As a result, the business of designing and making lenses is undergoing its most fundamental upheaval since the Renaissance.


Original Lensbaby flexible SLR camera lens

Ralf Jurrien : 2007-03-09 15:46:00
Original Lensbaby flexible SLR camera lens : Lensbabies, showcases today The Original Lensbaby, a flexible camera lens that creates a `sweet spot' area of focus that photographers can move around the image area by bending the flexible lens tubing. The Original Lensbaby brings the imperfect Holga look to digital and film SLR photography, but with greater versatility and new effects. While Lensbabies have broad appeal, the unique imagery is particularly attractive to portrait, wedding, product, and fashion photographers. "A Lensbaby allows me to interpret a scene and gives me the ability to go back in time and shoot digitally the way that Coburn and the other greats did with the box cameras," said professional photographer Jerry Hart.
