Canon working on Curve Sensor [New]

Canon Curve sensor patent imageCurve sensor patent is not new, we have already published Canon curved sensor patent on March 2nd, 2016. In the latest patent is said to be piratically more easy to implement. Take a look at the details below translated from Japanese language

Patent Publication No. 2016-173496
Published 2016.9.29
Filing date 2015.3.17
However, generally a dark current is generated by the image sensor, especially since the time of or during long exposure sensitivity is sometimes noise due to dark current are noticeable, various noise reduction process is performed. On the other hand, the imaging surface imaging element is curved in the imaging element curved dark current generated by the imaging device is known to be reduced by the tensile stress at the time of the.

Canon patent
Curving the imaging surface drive means
Driving means magnetic force
Curvature of dark current noise is reduced
Curvature priority to the correction of the curvature of field aberration

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II

sony-rx100-v-vs-g7x-mk-ii-iSony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II Specification comparison and High ISO Test – Sony RX100V resolution and sensor size may look same. But both models have entirely different sensor inside. The Canon G7X Mark II have a traditional contrast detect sensor whereas the Sony RX100 V features hybrid Phase+contrast detect sensor. And not only that RX100 V does have series of modification to look. We have also done a side by side test to to see which camera actually produces better images

As we have told you earlier the sensor inside the Sony RX100V features 315 Phase AF points to quickly lock down AF on subjects despite of lighting condition.

The most important part of the new Sony RX100 V camera is the introduction of LSI circuit inside the camera that increase the frame rate of the camera upto 24frames per second. And not only that with the help of large buffer we have 148 JPEG frames in a single burst. The same tech also help to capture Full HD video @ 120frames per second and HFR Mode for Full HD Video up to 960 fps.

World fastest AF in a compact camera – The 60% of the display screen of the camera is covered by the the 315 Phase AF points. The RX100 V is able to lock onto subjects quickly, in just 0.05 seconds, and it can use AF tracking when shooting at 24 fps. Sony RX100V world most fastest compact camera till date.

Shutter: Sony RX100V uses Hybrid  shutter, with the help of Hybrid shutter the shutter range of Sony RX100V goes from 30 sec to 1/32000 sec whereas the Canon shutter range remains limited to 1/2000 sec.

Video Mode:  If We talk about the video mode the Sony RX100 V will win the fight without an issue. The Sony RX100V camera can capture 4K video mode whereas the Canon G7X Mark II remains limited to Full HD video mode only. Sony RX100V can also use Hybrid AF system while shooting video.

On the rear side of the Canon G7X Mark II camera we have a touch screen display that allow users to touch and focus your subjects, whereas the Sony RX100M V doesn’t have touch screen display.

The Cost: The Big Cost of the camera is also very important. The Canon G7X Mark II available in $699 only and the Sony RX100V is available on $999. So you have to pay $300 extra is you want Sony RX100V camera

Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II High ISO Test


Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – High ISo test between Sony RX100 V vs Cann G7X Mark II camera at ISO400

If you want to really see the difference between these two camera look at the test images captures at ISO 400 very carefully. The Sony RX100 V camera showing excellent details even when viewed at 100% whereas the Canon G7X Camera on the right side fails to collect the amount of details / maybe due to the strong noise reduction filter inside it.

However the bottom line at base ISO range Sony is producing bit more details compared to Canon G7X Mark II.


Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 1600

Now after that in each test you can see the result, Sony RX100V capturing more details and Canon G7X Mark II images look bit flat.


Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 3200

Both camera giving flat details at ISO 3200 however there is no sign of color noise which is really a big advantage for a compact cameras. However we are not able to see any noticable change between the image quality of both the camera at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.


Sony RX100 V vs. Canon G7X Mark II – ISO 12800

Before we begin I must say that both the camera producing unusable image at ISO 12800, but at the same time we can say the color noise of Sony RX100V is more controlled than Canon G7X Mark II.


Sony done a lot of homework to improve the overall specification the camera, one of the eye-catching specification is RX100 V is able to do AF even at 24frames per second and can save 120frames in a single burst. The other biggest advantage is 4K video mode (supported by Hybrid AF) as well as HFR mode that allow you to capture Full HD Video up to 960 fps. Whereas the competitor Canon  G7X Mark II remains limited to Full HD videos at 60fps only.

The new sensor of the Sony RX100 V camera giving us more details at base ISO range compared to Canon G7X Mark II however the ISO test sample images captured at ISO 3200 and ISO 1600 look bit similar.

I will prefer Sony RX100 V camera over Canon G7X Mark II. Since the RX100 V features ultra advance core specification that includes, better sensor, Hybrid AF, global Shutter, 4K video as well as HFR video, a far better core specification compared to G7X Mk II.

Camera sensor size imageBut there is nothing to get excited about since the rumor mill says the information is coming from a new source, so take it with a a pinch of salt.

But at the same time if you look at the patents, Canon does have a compact camera with a APS-C size sensor as we have published on on July 16th, 2016 and on the same day we got a lot of emails saying So is this a G1X II replacement?

PS: As we have mentioned earlier the Canon G1X camera life cycle was  2 year and 1 month and current Canon G1X Mark II camera is  2 years, 8 months old. So announcement of new product is expected soon.

Canon 7D Mark II camera features 20  Megapixel CMOS sensor and Sony A6500 camera feature 24 MP sensor. ISO range of both the camera is same.The camera sensor size of the Sony A6500 is little big compared Canon 7D Mark II. We all know that the Sony A6500 camera does have the same sensor as of A6300 but due to thin copper wiring, enhanced circuit processing, and an enhanced front-end LSI we may see major improvement in image quality of the camera.

Sony A6500 camera features built-in image stabilization system to compensate camera shake upto 5 stops the other big advantage you get that OSS based lenses Image stabilization system will get synchronized with the in Body IS of A6500. No Built-in IS available inside the Canon 7D Mark II camera.

But the most important thing is both the camera is designed on different technological background, the Canon 7D Mark II camera features Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor whereas the Sony A6500 camera uses Hybrid CMOS AF sensor. With the Hybrid AF system the camera Sony A6500 camera offers 425 Phase AF points and 169 Contrast based AF points. So you get a entire display covered with dense AF that will track and lock AF in no time. Sony A6500 AF system is more advance compared to Canon 7D Mark II.

The continuous shooting speed of the Sony A6500 camera is superior. The A6500 Can shoot 11frames per second @ 24 MP whereas Canon 7D Mark can shoot 10 frames per second @ 20MP. The large buffer inside the Sony A6500 can intake 301+shots of JPEG files in single burst mode and 107 RAW frames.

Sony A6500 captures 4K video mode whereas the Canon 7D Mark II limited to Full HD video mode only. The A6500  2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible and there is no pixel binning. Sony A6500 Full HD 1080p recording can be done @ 120 fps whereas Full HD Video recording of the 7D Mk II camera remains limited to 60fps only.

On the rear side of A6500 we have touch screen that allow user to capture images just tapping. The other major advantage is we can use the display screen as touch-pad to select AF point while we are looking through the viewfinder.

Canon 7D Mark II features twice battery life compared to Sony A6500.

The weight and Size of the Canon is twice as of Sony, So if you prefer light-weight camera or you work continuously for hours than Sony A6500 is best for you.


Sony A6500 does offer superior specification compared to Canon 7D Mark II camera.  You get more resolution with big bigger sensor, 5-axis image stabilization and Advance Hybrid AF mode. The continuous shooting mode of the A6500 is better as well as you also get touch screen for more convince. We recommend Sony A6500 over Canon 7D Mark II camera.
