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.

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.

Canon Cameras Coming in Photokina 2018

What to expect from Canon this Photokina 2018 ? We are getting hints from the beginning of the year, that several new products from Canon is coming. Some of the major name in the list includes arrival of Canon Fullframe Mirrorless and Canon 7D Mark III camera. Take a detailed list of products expected to arrive this Photokina 2018

1. Canon Fullframe Mirrorless

Based on latest rumors Canon Mirrorless camera is on hands of few selected photographers worldwide.  That clearly indicates a big mirrorless announcement may happen soon, and as we have said in the past the best platform for announcement of such product is Photokina 2018.

The core specification of the camera isn’t know yet, but during the test (Model code K433) at wireless certification agency camera was having a 30 MP Fullframe sensor.

So, we are almost confirmed that the one of the Fullframe camera model is having 30 MP DPAF sensor. The image processor inside the FF Mirrorless is expected to be Dual Digic 8 for sure. On Video 4K with C-log support is also expected.

2. Canon 7D Mark III

Canon 7D Mark II is overdue for an update and the Canon 7D Mark III announcement is expected at the end of 2018 sometime in 2019. based on latest rumors and the strategy followed by Canon for the year of 2018. It’s look like Canon 7D III isn’t coming anytime soon.

3. Canon EOS M5 Mark II

One more APS-C Mirrorless announcement is expected this  year and we are hoping for next generation of APS-C flagship Canon EOS M-5 Mark II camera. As the Canon EOS M50 have limited 4K video mode with no DPAF support and additional 1.6X crop-factor over it. So, we are expecting Canon will pull out all those limitations in the upcoming APS-C flaghip camera. As for now we don’t have the exact date of arrival but we do expect its announcement before Photokina 2018.

4. Canon G7X Mark III

We have seen already a lot of hoax about the Canon G7X Mark III camera, we are almost confirmed that Canon G7X Mark III is one of the first Canon compact camera that have 4K video mode with DPAF support.  The announcement of the camera is expected on Summer of 2018.

Canon 90D Update  – Canon has registered two APS-C camera DSLRs at wireless registration agency. But, we are not expecting the announcement of Canon 90D this year, it is expected to arrive in the beginning or mid of 2019.

So, these are the set of cameras we are expecting on Photokina 2018. We will update this page whenever we get any new information.

Now, After 2+ years of long gap we are expecting Sony A7S III camera with improved core specification.
