Sony 8K Camera Before 2020 Olympics [Rumor]

According to latest rumours Sony will going to release 8k camera camcorder as well as lot of 8k compatible devices which includes latest laser projector, televisions, post processing platforms. As we all know the 2020 Olympics will be broadcasted in 8k from Japan, and by 2020 most of the camera manufacturers promised to release 8k compatible consumer level cameras before the Olympics.

now as we all know a while ago Panasonic represent it is also hinted us that they will going to release a 6k / 8k capable device before 2020 Olympics or we can say there is a big possibility we can see Panasonic GH6 camera before 2020 Olympics to make 6k / 8k recording possible at consumer level. what we have to keep in mind that micro four third sensors to have a physical limit, and for that Panasonic also introduced the L mount, S1 / 1R camera. So, we may have next iteration of Camera by End of 2029. Btw, let’s limit our-self to Sony.

list of 8K products that is rumored to arrive before 2020 Olympics.

  • 8K Television/CLEDIS
  • 8K Laser projector
  • 8K camera/camcorder
  • 8K postprocessing platform

Now based on the least we can also expect 8k capable camera from Sony in the year of 2019 or maybe at very beginning of 2020. Since the time I am writing the post we don’t have any solid confirmation about Sony upcoming super high resolution video camera.

Will update you soon as we get any new information

Panasonic 8K Mirrorless Camera Under Development ?

According to latest rumors Panasonic giving hints about possible announcement of Panasonic 8K Video camera in near future. It all started with an interview, Panasonic France Manager clearly hinted that they can make Panasonic 8K M4/3 camera in near future.  Take a look at the statement

8K on Micro 4/3 is complicated, if not impossible.

Ok, now its also important to look back a bit, Panasonic M4/3 8K Camera news is not new. Back on Feb 2018 we have published news that Panasonic successfully developed 36MP M4/3 sensor which records 4K videos. For more details you can check here

 Olympus 8K Mirrorless camera in Future RoadMap

It all started with Olympus, when the reveled their future strategy in their Annual Report of 2017. In an Annual report published by Olympus mentioned about the development of 8K video and PRO Lenses for their MFT lineup

Take a look at the important announcements made by Olympus back in 2017

1) Focus on the development of high-value-added mirrorless cameras (primarily OM-D series) and interchangeable lenses

(PRO series) boasting competitive prices

2)  Develop systems that allow for improved efficiency in new product manufacturing start-ups and mass production by

transferring production to Vietnam

3) Establish comprehensive range of technologies for 4K and 8K video, development of devices necessary for recording at

these resolutions, and optimization of interface with outputs (monitors)

So, competition is always very healthy and consumers will get advantage of it. But at the same time are we ready for 8K on our camera. Since we need high speed processing computers and 8K display units.

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

Translates Text
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.

Panasonic 8K Sensor Coming in February 2018

organic sensor image

Panasonic attending the ISSCC conference in February to make a official presence organic sensor in the conference. Take a look at the set of specification below of Panasonic Organic sensor

8K4K-Resolution
60fps
450ke- -Saturation-Signal
Organic-Photoconductive-Film
Global Shutter
CMOS Image Sensor with In-Pixel Noise Canceller

These organic sensors are still on development or test phase ?. We have to keep eye on the ISSCC conference. We do expect that Panasonic will sure give us a specific time frame for the arrival of Organic sensor for consumers.

We are covering up the organic sensor news from 2013. In 2014 we have received news that Panasonic and Fuji Organic Sensor Based Camera Delayed  and after that on March 2017 we got news via French website DChome  that Panasonic Working on Mass Production of Organic Sensor. But, unfortunately we haven’t received after that.

Canon to Showcase to 8K Camera and Display on NAB 2016

Canon-EOS-C500-Mark-II-imagWe are now confirmed that Canon is serious about the NAB show and they will showcase next gen of 8K cinema camera (C500 Mark II), 8K Display along with few surprise. The information is surfaced over the web via NABHUB durng a interview given by Tim Smith , Senior Advisor, Film and TV Production at Canon.

We will be showing not only our existing product line, with a few surprises, but we will also be showing working 8K cameras and 8K displays that look into the future of production.

 

A look Back

Well we have told you earlier that Canon is working on a 8K camera, the camera will arrive under the name of C500 Mark II.

Now the C500 camera of camera was the first camera to get 8MP Dual pixel CMOS AF Sensor and features ISO range upto 409600. The C500 powered by Dual Digic DV III image processor and comes with a unbelievable cost of approx a $9999 .

Canon 8K camera

To generate a 8K image a camera must have a approx 36 megapixels sensor, every slice of 8K frames should be of 33.2 MP. The next big thing is the image processor of the camera, to process even 24 frames of 33+ MP files camera must have a super fast multi-core processor and a built in cooling system to manage the heat produced by the sensor and image processor of the camera.

Canon C500 Mark II Coming with a 36 MP Sensor?

Canon already shown us the working prototype of a 8K cinema camera with 36MP  Fullframe sensor on September 2015, they also showed us a 120 Megapixel fullframe sensor based DSLR camera on the same event,  you can see more details here.

TIP: 4K UHD is a resolution of 3840 pixels × 2160 lines (8.3 megapixels, aspect ratio 16:9) and  8K UHD which is 7680 pixels × 4320 lines (33.2 megapixels).

Toward 8K correspondence, it was undertaken on the development of next-generation image processing large-scale integrated circuit (LSI) “10th generation high-speed image processing Venus Engine”.

the Japanese newspaper is talking about Large-scale integration (LSI) chip, LSI chip is known as image processor in camera, the traditional LSI chip is made by integrating 1000 or more of transistors on a single silicon semiconductor microchip…now world has changed … the old LSI technology is replaced by very large-scale integration (VLSI) and ultra large-scale integration (ULSI) technologies, Panasonic may have adopted ultra large-scale integration (ULSI) technologies to build the new image processing engine to support 8k.

Also look at …

During the Panasonic G7 announcement Panasonic revealed  its future plans of 8K video, including 4K at 60fps and 120fps, take a look at a snapshot what ephotozine writes
