    Default New tech - 4x better than CCD or CMOS

    Interesting, wonder why only applicable for mobile phone ?

    Looks like a promising tech..Hope that it doesn't become a vaporware..

    not only is it better but theyve also given it a mega-awesome name...

    "nice camera cmos sensor?"

    "IS THIS MADNESS THIS IS QUANTUM FILLLLMMMM!"

    So what does this mean? Ultra-high low light capabilities without flash?

    Because the chip yields get worse with larger chips.

    Quantum dots have been studied for a while, but it will be years before it becomes commercially available technology.

    HOLY MAMA

    if this technology becomes commercialize
    and becomes stable enough

    we'll see another revolution in photography equipment
    similar to the film to digital one
    For passion or prestige? A trend or a niche?

    film to digital? i think its just an improvement in the sensor albeit a huge one. dont think theyll develop new lenses and the likes just because of that

    Hoping it would make CCD/CMOS sensors with better/higher ISO..... but with most Camera Maker already spending large amount of $$$$ on their own sensor.... would they be willing to spend even more $$$$ now to buy the rights to this new sensor ??

    QuantumFilm is ideal for a wide range of image-sensing technologies including security cameras, automotive cameras and military applications. The first QuantumFilm image sensors, targeting high-end mobile handsets and smartphones, will sample in Q4 of 2010.
    Which means there is something why it is not used in photographic cameras, video systems .. all those systems that require colour accuracy?

    unless they are forced to :
    • Compact cameras with such sensor being able to take pictures with IQ similar or winning DSLRs

    i bet the 50% of the consumers out there won't even know what is CMOS and CCD,
    (or at in my social circle) so picture needs to speak louder than works to "force" the camera companies into this new type of sensor

    hmmmmmmmm, why would this new sensor need new lenses btw??
    they can always make the sensors similarly sized as the current sensors

    or am i wrong

    Uh what's this gonna do with what the discussion is about? The sensor has nothing to do with interchangeable lens.

    maybe dry run, the big boys not enticed yet.
    Sensor so good, the glass on mobile phone will be too limiting..
    lets see how it turns out eventually.
