(a) A schematic diagram of a conventional two-dimensional CMOS colour image sensor. Each pixel measures the intensity of light passing through B, G, and R colour filters. In this side-by-side PD array, the area of the G colour filters is two times that of the B and R colour filters. (b) A schematic diagram of a three-dimensional, multi-stacked, organic-on-Si hybrid CMOS colour image sensor. A G OPD is placed on top of the B and R colour filters. The G OPD detects the amount of G light, after which the underlying Si PDs selectively detect the amounts of B and R light through the B and R colour filters, respectively.

→ Samsung also has an organic-on-Si CMOS sensor.

→ Microsoft released a new version of their free panoramic software Microsoft Image Composite Editor - the software is used for stitching of panoramic images and now also does automatically fill-in missing parts of the image if the shooting of the scene was incomplete. The codecs to open raw files can be downloaded here.
