New exciting technologies coming soon to a camera near you

  • The first video is of a flexible OLED prototype, by Samsung: It's a 2.8" display (166ppi), and it's just 20 micrometer thick (source):

  • The other news from this week was Epson's announcement of a mass production, high-end EVF panels. Some details:


Features of the new panel

  • Compact - small 0.47-inch diagonal screen enables compact, thin cameras
  • High resolution - high pixel density with SVGA resolution (800 x RGB x 600, 1.44 megapixels)
  • Color filter - not affected by color breakup that occurs with fast-moving subjects and panning shots when using a field-sequential color system

Advantages when used in a DSLR camera

  • High resolution enables easy focusing
  • Can capture images as they are seen
  • Viable alternative to optical viewfinder
  • Avoids the blackout of optical viewfinders when shooting video
  • Enables smaller cameras by eliminating need for mirrors and pentaprisms
  • Eliminates mechanical time lag caused by mirror

SDXC-Memory-Card"The new SDXC specification provides up to 2 terabytes (TB) of portable storage capacity to store weeks of high-definition video, years of photo collections and months of music. It will accelerate SD interface read/write speeds up to 104 megabytes per second for the first phase. It can be used in cameras, camcorders, mobile phones and other consumer electronic devices. The SD Association will have a road map for a data transfer bus interface speed of 300 megabytes per second in the coming months."
