    Default New Sensor Design for Mobile Phones

    Interesting development here in the camera sensor market.

    I wonder how this will effect the way camera manufacturers look at making sensors now.

    InVisage - Camera Sensor

    Those who make camera sensors, including Panasonic, Sony, Canon, Micron Technologies spinoff Aptina Imaging, and OmniVision Technologies, have been working to snatch as many photons as possible that come through the camera lens. Among other things, they've reduced the size of circuitry that gets in the way of capturing light, thereby increasing the "fill factor" of each pixel; they've flipped the sensor design around so the circuitry doesn't get in the way of the silicon in an approach called back-side illumination; they've come up with "gapless" microlenses that gather light from one edge of the pixel to the other and focus it on the light-gathering area.

    that's why i think the hi iso advantage of ff bodies will be gone in a few years time.

    If FF applied the same tech, they would still maintain advantage dont they?
