    The photochromic layer in the image sensor is genius. Finally we’ll be able to expose digital like we do film, without blowing out the highlights… I hope…

      The good news, they are developing it.

      The bad news, it may be a sign that existing digital has reached a plateau in that regard, so we will need to be patient waiting these improvements.

      If their patent is the only method that blocks others. So the wait could be very long as some makers just wait till patents time out.
