Panasonic Develops 36MP Sensor that records 8K Video

Panasonic GH8

We are talking about a technological breakthrough done by Panasonic. According to DCWATCH (Highly reputed Japanese website) Panasonic successfully developed a 36MP 4/3 Sensor able to record 8K video. Initially they may use this sensor for Panasonic GH5R? (just a thought) by limiting it to 4K or 6K video mode.

Now 2 years from now Panasonic representative told yes they are working to make a consumer camera available on 2020 Olympics with 8K video capability.

This year are expecting to see Panasonic GH6 camera with 6K capability coming on September 2018 [Pho0tokina event]. And after a year gap [2019] we will sure see a Panasonic GH8 K camera from Panasonic.

So, this [translated] press release is just another another step,

Panasonic GH6 camera

Panasonic Corporation develops a CMOS image sensor design technology capable of global shutter imaging with high saturation and sensitivity modulation function of 450 thousand electrons, reading at a high frame rate of 60 fps with a high resolution of 36 million pixels that realizes 8 K image quality We announced.

In this technology, the function of converting light into an electric signal is an organic thin film, and the function of storing and reading signal charges is completely and independently performed in the lower layer circuit section.

By utilizing the structural features of the organic CMOS image sensor and installing high-speed noise cancellation technology and technology to realize high saturation in the circuit part with high degree of freedom, it is possible to achieve 8 k high resolution which is usually a trade-off 60 fps read out, wide dynamic range by realizing high saturation characteristics, global shutter function for the first time in the industry simultaneously realized.

    It’s impossible for 4/3rds format sensor to record true 8K, ie 7680 x 4320, which is 16:9 format. There is not enough spare pixels to accomodate the crop. Either they are making a different format sensor or they are talking crap.

    At a minimum they would need a 4/3 sensor to have a resolution of

    7680 x 5760 = 44.3MP

    and they would probably need more so as to not use pixels right to the edge of the sensor.

    Odin,they could be using the so-called multi-aspect ratio like that found in GH5S, which would allow to use the whole image circle in 16:9. Haven’t done any calculations though.

  • Odin

    If it is multi-aspect do you really think they will build a 44MP 4/3rd sensor, which is FF equivalent of 160MP. Even 36MP in such a small sensor seems crazy IMO.
    8K from current high end FF is doable.
