New Pix Curve Image Sensor Coming at CES 2019

 

We are covering up Curve sensor news from a while but yesterday we have a received a email from French research institute CEA-Leti team about their upcoming Curve sensor announcement at CES show. The new curve image sensor can be used for Cameras, Smartphones and Security Cameras.

Curve and organic sensors are the future imagine technology, with the implementation of curve sensor the lens optics size will be reduced dramatically (upto 50-60% compared to conventional lens size) and that opens a bunch of possibilities to improve your existing interchangeable lens system.

Curve Sensor Advantages

  • Form Factor: Reducing the number of lens elements in digital cameras from 10 to six reduces the size of the final compound lens by 60 percent. The overall length of the optical system also is shorter.
  • Improved Performance: Curved image sensors reduce—and in some cases completely eliminate—optical aberrations like curvature of field and the vignetting effect. They also deliver increased brightness and a wider field of view.
  • Cost: Reducing the number of lens elements and eliminating aspheric lens elements, which will be unnecessary, will lower the cost of systems integrating Pixcurve technology.
  • Assembly: Fewer components means quicker and easier assembly—a major advantage for manufacturers.

CEA will host a ‘CEA Tech Village’ at booth 51253 in Eureka Park

Visitors at the Pixcurve booth at CES will see before-and-after examples on two tablets, illustrating the substantial size reduction that Pixcurve curved-sensor technology can bring and proving that there is no decline in image quality.

Press Release

Pixcurve at CES: New Curved Image Sensor Technology Reduces Size, Weight & Cost of Digital Cameras – and Improves Image Quality

GRENOBLE, France – Dec. 06, 2018 – With an innovation that could inject new life into the global digital-camera market, CEA-Leti will demonstrate its new technology for image sensors at CES 2019 that replicates the curve of the human retina. This curved image sensor technology breakthrough, called Pixcurve, requires fewer lens elements in digital cameras, which shrinks camera size by half and lowers costs – while improving image quality.

“The digital camera market has taken a huge hit from the massive adoption of smartphones, even though these bigger cameras deliver better image quality than smartphone cameras,” said David Henry, manager of packaging and assembling at CEA-Leti. “Pixcurve, which also reduces camera sizes in smartphones, microdisplays and virtual-reality glasses, provides camera manufacturers with cost effective, compact, easy-to-assemble optical components they need to bring their products to new levels of performance in the digital era.”

Portability is a big factor for many consumers, and smaller, lighter and less-expensive digital cameras will enable camera makers to increase their share of the global market. With Pixcurve, CEA-Leti, a French research institute, has developed an innovative solution for the visible imaging market and beyond.

Olympus E-M1X Camera Images Leaked

Finally the first set of leaked images of the upcoming Olympus E-M1X camera surfaced over the web and camera look damn big. We can’t comment about the authenticity of the leaked images since the set of images are not coming from any authentic source. So, just take a look at the images and enjoy and do share your thought with us

We have already shared a lot of information related to the upcoming Olympus E-M1X. latest information suggest that we have published on December 6 2018, the upcoming Olympus E-M1X camera will going to use artificially intelligent auto focusing system. This is the first time that a micro four third camera is using a high level of AI system and that will sure going to help sports shooters to track high-speed subjects.

Olympus E-M1X Leaked Specification

  • Sensor: 20MP
  • Frame rate: 18fps
  • 7.5+ EV stabilization
  • Faster image processing – approx 2x faster than the E-m1X
  • Autofocus: Adaptive and expandable focal points. Two examples. If you are shooting a person, then shift to shooting a car, the number of focal points will automatically
  • expand. If you are shooting a basketball player, you will get a vertical series of 5 focal points.
  • Body Size: 144.37 x 146.765 x 75.345mm (body with a built in vertical grip)
  • High Res: Can shoot handheld High Resolution images (around 80MP) at 1/60s
  • Photography focus: Sports and Wildlife shooters
  • Same batteries as E-M1 Mk II
  • Larger EVF
  • Launch: January 2019 along “2 tele zooms, 1 wide angle zoom. speedlight. zuiko binoculars”
  • Availability: February

The only thing we don’t like about this camera is its high price tag, according to the rumors upcoming camera will going to be priced somewhere around $3000. Which is really too excessive if you’re going to compare it with the existing mirrorless system solutions offered by other other companies, and yes I am talking about Sony which gives you excellent mirrorless FF camera under $1000…OLY should keep the price of the upcoming Olympus E-M1X camera somewhere around $2000 or less than that to look more feasible in the competition.

Olympus E-M1X camera is rumored to arrive in January 2019 and the shipping of the camera will start from February 2019. We will update you soon as we collect more information related to the upcoming camera. We are also waiting for trusted Japanese sources to leak out some authentic set of information and clear images of the upcoming Olympus E-M1X flagship mirrorless M4/3 camera.

Canon Working on Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization System [More Confirmation]

Yesterday Japanese patent hunting website [hi-lo] revealed that Canon is working on sensor shift image stabilization system. This is not the first time we are talking about Canon full frame mirrorless sensor shift image stabilization system.

Canon Latest Sensor shift IS patent

CANON filed a patent of tilting sensor to reduce an eccentricity of lens. This patent is very simple application of IBIS.

Public number] Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 2018-194766 (P2018-194766A) click here
[Publication date] December 6, Heisei 20 (2018.12.6)
Patent application title: Camera body having optical correction and lens device

We have Told you a month ago…

If you are a regular leader of our website then we have already published a patent back on October 2018 which talks about Canon working on built-in sensor shift image stabilization system for their mirrorless cameras. [ See here – Canon working on image stabilization system ]

So we have already published information about Canon sensor shift image stabilization system even prior to the Japanese patent hunting website. And most importantly both the patent is bit different that clearly indicates Canon is seriously thinking about implementation of built-in image stabilization system inside their full frame mirrorless cameras.

Canon Representatives Talks about IBIS in Future Canon Mirrorless Models

Now let’s talk about what Canon representatives said about the implementation of sensor-shift image stabilization system inside their future mirrorless cameras. On September 2018 we have published the post which contains major points of Canon ICB product development team interview

Canon for development team clearly said

Canon had a policy against IBIS on DSLRs, but this is not the case for MILCs. Lack of IBIS on EOS R was a result of compromises over body size, cost and heat dissipation for this particular model; they do think it has merits, and will consider it for future models depending on the nature of the camera body.

Canon Combination IS [Dual IS System]

We already know Canon developed Combination IS system for Canon EOS M50 camera. In which they utilizes both OSS and Camera Digital IS together in 4K Video mode to combat camera shake. And once they developed the sensor shift-mechanism they will sure utilize both lens based IS and Sensor based IS.

In general patent takes at least a year of time to become reality. So, we are expecting and as the rumor mills suggest Canon will sure announce a High-End Mirrorless camera in future with built-in image stabilization system. And who know even the EOS Mark II camera may carry built-in image stabilization inside.

Canon 6D Mark III Release date and Everything We Expect

We generally get a lot of question by users about upcoming camera, People are willing to know is it safe to buy Canon 6D Mark II camera in 2018 or 2019 ? When Canon 6D Mark III is coming ? So, let’s have a look when Canon 6D Mark III is coming.

let’s talk about the successor of Canon 6D mark 2 camera yes we are talking about the Canon 6D Mark III. We are getting a lot of unconfirmed set of information related to related to Canon 6D Mark III, and some of the sources do suggest the camera will arrive in Q1 of 2020 with same sensor as of Canon 5D Mark IV.

Canon took a long time to introduce the update Canon 6D mark 2. The time difference was approx 4 years and bit more between the Canon 6D and Canon 6D Mark II. But, we don’t think that canon will going to take the same time to introduce the update of Canon 6D mark 2 camera, the successor of the camera will arrive sometime at 2020.

What we want to see inside Canon 6D Mark III ?

We want to see massively improved Canon 6D Mark III camera with completely new sensor and brand new image processor. We also hope that with the help of new image sensor and image processor the Canon 6D Mark III camera. But latest rumors coming out from anonymous sources suggest Canon will use 30MP DPAF Sensor as we have seen in Canon 5D mark IV camera with new Digic 8 image processor. So, don’t expect any dramatic change in image quality of Canon 6D Mark II camera. It will somehow better than image quality of Canon 5D Mark IV.

30 Megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus sensor

Yes, we are expecting a new sensor as we have told you already but adding a brand new sensor inside Canon 6D Mark III body isn’t so easy for Canon. Since, right now entire Canon team is putting attention towards the development of Canon FF and APS-C sensor based Mirrorless cameras. And even in 2019 we are expecting Canon will announce 1 new Canon FF Mirrorless Bodies (K433) at the same time 1DX Mark III announcement is also expected at Q4 of 2019. See upcoming Mirrorless camera of 2019

Ultra HD 4K videos with Canon log Gama

We don’t think and I will going to introduce DCI 4K video recording in canon 6D Mark III camera it will going to remain Limited at ultra HD 4K video recording mode but at the same time can we will have the Canon log, which allow users to capture flat images with improved dynamic range upto 800% or 12 stops. 4K video with 422 sampling and 8 bit colour depth…we also hope to get neat and clean 10 bit output from the Canon 6D Mark III camera.

Canon 6D Mark III Wish List

  • 30.4MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • UHD 4K30 Video; C-Log & 10-Bit HDMI Out
  • Combination IS
  • Native ISO 102400
  • Dual Pixel RAW; AF Area Select Button
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Movie Servo AF
  • 7 fps Shooting; Dual Card Slots
  • Built-In GPS and Wi-Fi with NFC

Canon Dual Image Stabilization or combination IS system

We also hope to see combination image stabilization system inside the Canon 6D Mark III camera, the combination images stabilization system is actually a conjunction of lens and image stabilization system as well as digital image stabilization system to stabilize video footage. It’s already implemented inside Canon EOS M50 camera.

No crop factor in 4K video recording mode

As we all know that Canon 6D mark II camera is limited to full HD video recording. But at the same time Canon EOS R or Canon 5D Mark IV both suffer from 1.74 X factor in 4K video recording mode we do hope that the upcoming Canon 6D Mark III camera will do a full sensor readout and do not show any crop factor is issue in recording 4K videos.

Canon 6D Series Announcement Timeline

Well as we all know Canon 6D Mark II was announced on Sep 2017 and it is too early to expect the arrival of its successor. And prior to Canon 6D Mark II we will have the announcement of Canon 1D X Mark III at the end of 2019 and a high end Canon Mirrorless also on its way.

If Canon goes on its schedule then we will have next Canon 6D Mark II camera on 2021 or 2022, since we have more than 4 years of Gap between the Canon 6D and Canon 6D Mark II camera.

Camera Model Announcement Timeline
Canon 6D Sep 17, 2012
Canon 6D Mark II June 29, 2017
Canon 6D Mark III Sep 2021 or June 2022

As you can see if Canon goes on schedule update cycle then Canon 6D Mark III isn’t near to us. We do hope the next iteration of Canon 6D series will carry 4K with Canon-Log and new picture profiles along with new image processor.

What’s your wish list associated with Canon 6D Mark II camera do share with us

Dual Layer Foveon Sensor Patent by Sigma

Sigma Patent a Dual layer Foveon for the first time, in general Foveon sensors are made up of three layers. According to patent documents the new sensor will improve the readout speed of the sensor.

Sigma Foveon sensor Details Patent Details

  • [Publication number] Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 2018-195961 (P2018-195961A) click here
  • [Publication date] December 6, Heisei 20 (2018.12.6)
  • Image processing signal method, image signal processing apparatus, imaging apparatus

Each pixel has two layers of “B and G” or “G and R” as shown in a figure of embodiment.

We will sure see some improvements in low -light performance and readout speed of Sigma sensor, as we all know Foveon sensor are too good at base ISO but when you reach ISO 400 you can notice noise in your image and even ISO 1600 is bit unacceptable from a Foveon sensor. To solve this issue Sigma removed a layer from sensor and rearranged entire pixel structure. Hope to see some good cameras from Sigma in near future.

Sony BOSS - Balanced Optical Steadyshot

Sony is using next generation of image stabilization technology in their camcorders. And the name of the technology is called the boss. The full form of boss is body optical steadyshot system. In general Sony developers say it’s like adding a gimble inside a camera.

Boss image stabilization system was introduced 2 years ago in Sony camcorders and we do also hope that they will going to introduced in Sony RX100 series compact cameras as well as rx10 compact camera in near future.

Sony BOSS Image Stabilization system Demo

Now let’s take a look what is actually boss, the unique piece of technology combines the lens and the sensor allowing the camera to compensate for shake in much easier way then hybrid optical image stabilization system where camera manages to compensate the shake with the help of optical image stabilization system as well as sensor shift image stabilization system.

New balanced optical image stabilization system, are they also called it balanced optical steadyshot or boss. literally the camera lens and the sensor is completely join together and act as a single unit to offset the camera external shake. The stabilizer has three settings the first is of one is a standard or normal and the last one is active. you can use the active image stabilization system when you are running on your feets and standard image stabilization system is used when you are working and have less shake. in your hands

Sony BOSS vs Panasonic HYBRID O.I.S

One of the best thing of boss image stabilization system it is said to be 13 times more effective than the traditional sensor shift based image stabilization system. We will going to see how much effective it is when compared to hybrid optical image stabilization system offered by Panasonic.

Sony BOSS Coming to Sony Compacts and Mirrorless ?

When we will see BOSS inside Sony RX100 and RX10 series camera, we don’t know at the moment, but it is possible in future. But at the same time it’s not possible for Sony to implement “BOSS”  system to interchangeable lens system based cameras. Since the lens and Sensor unit isn’t fixed and Photographers also use third party lenses.

List of Camera using Sony BOSS IS system

We have created a list of Sony camcorders which uses Sony BOSS optical image stabilization system. Let’s have a look

Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Handycam Camcorder $798
Sony FDR-AX33 4K Ultra HD Handycam Camcorder $698
