Panasonic offers a new organic (!) Sensor with 35 megapixels, global shutter and incredible dynamic range.
Renowned organic sensor
It has been about eight years since Fujifilm and Panasonic announced a partnership to develop an organic sensor. If you want to make a decision after this long period of time, this decision will be very relaxing. This is because, despite the improvement in reporting once every few years, Panasonic, for example, has an organic sensor in February 2016 and one in November 2018 8K camcorder with organic sensor It was reported to be even further away from seeing the legendary technology in the camera suitable for the masses.
A new organic sensor with 35 megapixels was introduced
Or are we not far from it? Now that Panasonic has introduced a completely new organic sensor, there seems to be a glimmer of hope. You can already see this at the 4K / 8K Technology Expo in Japan, here is a picture:
The manufacturer has already revealed some details about the new sensor. It is an organic Super35 CMOS sensor with 35 megapixels that can record videos in 8K, making it easy to put any current sensor in your pocket, based on global shutter and dynamic range. This new sensor will not be seen on the real camera in the future, but still: this is basically a sign of life from the most promising technology.
Additional details about the sensor
Japanese colleagues Digicom-Information Have gathered some more detailed information about the new sensor. We have automatically translated these into deepl for you:
At this year’s exhibition, the company presented a prototype of an 8K camera with a 35-megapixel (8192 x 4320) organic CMOS sensor and an organic CMOS sensor. As the technology progresses towards practical application, the company has decided to showcase its technology at the 4K and 8K Imaging Technology Expo, where video equipment and other products will be on display.
The disadvantage is that a typical backlit CMOS sensor cannot be fitted with a universal shutter if it wants to achieve high resolution and large dynamic range, and a universal shutter reduces the resolution and dynamic range.
The organic CMOS sensor has four times the dynamic range of a standard CMOS sensor and at the same time offers high resolution at 8K. Universal shutters can be achieved by unique photovoltaic voltage control technology that controls the photovoltaic conversion efficiency by adjusting the voltage applied to the organic thin film.
The next generation of organic CMOS sensor technology incorporates ultra-WDR technology, in which two sensitive sensing cells are in the same pixel: high-sensitivity cell and high-density cell. It activates a dynamic range that is 100 times larger than an organic CMOS sensor and 400 times larger than a standard CMOS sensor.
