Kodak presents new image sensors for digital cameras
When we were attending to the most beautiful and eye-catching Kodak booth we met for Dona Flamme, general manager of Kodak's Image Sensor Solutions division. Dona showed us the latest image sensors Kodak introduced during this Photokina 2002 event. With these new image sensors it will be possible to give digital cameras an image quality boost by enhancing the resolution and performance. The new sensors are meant for a wide range of digital cameras, from the amateur series through the most advanced high professional and commercial products.
According to Dona Flamme the new image sensors will meet the (near) future needs of a variety of digital users in the photography. Whether they are working in the medical imaging, scientific and industrial industry or even use their equipment for their hobby the need of the highest possible image quality will increase. Kodak's Image Sensor Solutions (ISS) to be the leading supplier of those demanding image sensors. The announcements that are made today are demonstrating Kodak's ability to work closely with several camera manufacturers to develop image sensors like the three that are introduced during this event. Kodak's ISS new marketing initiative (since August 2000) allows Kodak to realize new revenue and earning opportunities from this core digital imaging technology. Until 2000, Kodak's ISS existed primarily to supply products and services for its own divisions, with the introduction of the latest image sensors Kodak expands more and more broadly into external markets. Dona Flamme is the new division General Manager and Vice President, she brought her experience in senior and technical management from Micrel Semiconductor and NCR Microelectronics to ISS.

The Kodak KAF-22000CE is a 22 Million pixel full-frame color CCD image sensor specially to combine with Sinar AG. This new Kodak sensor provides a total silicon area of 38.8mm x 50.0mm, twice the area of traditional 35mm film. The new Sinar 22 Megapixel digital system is using Kodak's new sensor. This technology allows professional commercial and studio photographers to work with the latest new photographic standard in this industry. At this moment the Kodak KAF-22000CE is the world's highest resolution images sensor for the professional photographic market. The new Kodak KAI-11000CM image sensor, unveiled during this Photokina, is an 11-million pixel interline transfer CCD color image sensor that enables to capture images with a full-field 35mm format sensor. So no more focal length multiplier and wide will stay wide when you use your 24mm lens. The KAI-110000CM image sensor also provides a fluid motion preview subjects on a monitor, making it ideal for portrait applications.

The third and the most "talked about" image sensor is the so-called "Four Thirds" System sensor. The "over-hyped" introduction of the Olympus/Kodak system (the story began almost 2 years ago and there is still no real product!) has to work with this new developed 4/3 system sensor. The new system with the new 4/3 system sensor would enable to produce smaller and lighter new digital SLR cameras that offer high image quality and more features for the photo enthusiasts. There should be more detailed information in the 4/3 system sensor available shortly, but for now we have a live image of the new Kodak sensor.
