Sony Bend Themselves a Curved CMOS Camera Sensor

Sony Curved CMOS Sensor

As many of you know, most camera sensors are flat little CMOS sensors that capture light information from your lens and convert it into digital data (electrons) for the camera’s computer system to translate into an image. And for the longest time, most sensors have essentially been flat and square because that’s just the easiest way to fabricate them and to calibrate the entire camera system. As you can see in the image below of Sony’s latest camera, the A7s, it is capable of astonishing things including ISO of 409,000 and 4K video, yet it still only has a flat CMOS sensor (which Sony manufactures).



It’s official: Digital sensor overtakes the human eye(s)

Can a digital component offer higher resolution than the human eye? Upcoming Mysterium Monstro RED 617 sensor features higher resolution than both human eyes, not just one.
