One of the major features of the smartphone is, it can capture 960fps at full HD resolution. Sony sensor used inside is made up of three layers, the first layer is pixel section, the second layer is DRAM and the final layer is Circuit section.

Most importantly due to the introduction of DRAM chip inside the sensor the motion eye camera now able to capture everything at 5X more speed compared to the conventional camera modules.

Major Features of Xperia XZ

  • 19MP 1/2.3 CMOS sensor
  • 25mm equivalent lens

Sony Claims that Xperia XZ is the world’s first memory stacked smartphone in its class. we have told you earlier that the sensor is composed of three layers and one of the layer is the DRAM chip, that is memory chip embedded inside the sensor to deliver faster read-out of sensor data. The major advantage of adding DRam chip inside the smart phone sensor is it allows you to capture videos at an insane speed that is you get 960 frames per second @ 720p from the latest smartphone.

The Other major feature that has been added inside the smartphone is predictive autofocusing just like DSLR. Yes, I know that the protective auto focusing feature is present inside all end DSLR and mirrorless cameras. That allows you to predict the subject position based on its motion / movement and hence the camera lock AF at right time when it actually requires.

Nikon Patent - BSI CMOS Sensor with Dual Pixel AF

Fig-1-Nikon-patnet

Before we begin I must admit it it’s very hard to understand a patent literature,  but after analyzing the entire document we concluded that Nikon working on a BSI CMOS AF Sensor. The sensor won’t have dead Phase AF pixels as the other Hybrid sensor have, instead of that it working principle looks same as Canon’s Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor.

Nikon Dual Pixel AF Sensor ?

Till now only Canon was only company who was using dual pixel CMOS AF Technology. But when we have seen the new Nikon latest patent where two sub pixels involved in acquiring AF, that clearly indicates Canon isn’t alone and Nikon will soon bring a new class of Hybrid Sensors for it’s DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras in near future.

Patent Details:

BACKSIDE ILLUMINATION IMAGE
SENSOR AND IMAGE-CAPTURING DEVICE

Appl. No.: 15/260,994
Filed Date: Sep. 9, 2016
Pub. Date: Dec. 29, 2016

Nikon-new-sensor-tech

But now after looking at the patent we have got its look like Nikon is also interested in working on the same dual pixel CMOS sensor Technology.

Details from the patent document

A backside illumination image sensor that includes a semiconductor substrate with a plurality of photoelectric conversion elements and a read circuit formed on a front surface side of the semiconductor substrate, and captures an image by outputting, via the read circuit, electrical signals generated as incident light having reached a back surface side of the semiconductor substrate is received at the photoelectric conversion elements includes: a light shielding film formed on a side where incident light enters the photoelectric conversion elements, with an opening formed therein in correspondence to each photoelectric conversion element; and an on-chip lens formed at a position set apart from the light shielding film by a predetermined distance in correspondence to each photoelectric conversion element. The light shielding film and an exit pupil plane of the image forming optical system achieve a conjugate relation to each other with regard to the on-chip lens.

Details from the patent document clearly indicates that Nikon is working on a BSI CMOS sensor that will have two sub pixels that will do AF by calculating the amount of lens drive Between the two autofocus point.

The image above of the patent you will get a clear indication that Nikon will do the same as Canon has done in many of its full frame and aps-c DPAF sensor camera. we are the first website to show you the details of the patent till now it is also possible that even Canon doesn’t know about this technology that Nikon working on.

Canon best L series Zoom Lens Image

Get this lens from Amazon | B&H

If you can get the newest version of 100-400mm lens then it will be one of the best Canon lens ever purchased by you. Please don’t get the older version of 100-400mm lens since lens was announced in September 1998 and you can imagine the lens is using 19 year old optical formula and AF system. The Canon 77D is using advance generation of Dual-pixel CMOS AF system and 45 Point AF module of Canon 80D.  So don’t get a 10 year old lens hence it may result slow AF operation and weak resolving power.

But, believe me it’s one of the most sharpest lens I have ever used with my Canon 80D camera ever.
