Canon develops a 1″ 4k CMOS back-illuminated stacked sensor with 24 stops of dynamic range, Panasonic develops Hyperspectral Imaging Technology with the world’s highest sensitivity

Canon develops a 1" 4k CMOS back-illuminated stacked sensor with 24 stops of dynamic range:

  • The new sensor divides the image into 736 areas and automatically determines the best exposure settings for each area
  • The new sensor realizes a dynamic range of 148 dB—the highest-level performance in the industry among image sensors for monitoring applications. It is capable of image capture at light levels ranging from approximately 0.1 lux to approximately 2,700,000 lux.
  • In order to produce a natural-looking image when capturing images in environments with both bright and dark areas, conventional high-dynamic-range image capture requires taking multiple separate photos under different exposure conditions and then synthesizing them into a single image.

Panasonic develops Hyperspectral Imaging Technology with the world's highest sensitivity:

  •  Improve sensitivity beyond physical restrictions through data acquisition with thinning out using a special filter randomly transmitting multiple wavelengths of light.
  • Achieves clear images even in indoor illumination (550 lux) through hyperspectral imaging with the world's highest sensitivity (about 10 times higher than conventional ones).
  • Achieves hyperspectral imaging with color camera-comparable usability by improving frame rates*5 to levels as high as video-rates (over 30 fps) via a uniquely developed algorithm.

For now, the above developments are not designed for the photo industry, but this may change on the future.
