Panasonic develops new image sensor
Author: Alessandra Carneiro Date: May 15, 2007 - 3:26 PM PST
Category: Camera
More Info: http://www.panasonic.com/flash.asp

Panasonic announced the development a image sensor for the next generation. Unlike traditional image sensors with polymer onchip microlenses and dyed color filters, the MOS image sensor has digital-microlenses and photonic color filters, both made of inorganic materials that are inherently fade-resistant and robust.

According to Panasonic, conventional MOS image sensors require polymer onchip microlenses and dyed RGB color filters, which are fragile and susceptible to sunlight exposure and a change in temperature. As a result, color images captured by a camera used under direct sunlight, including the ultra-violet (UV) portion, and higher temperature conditions will fade faster.
