Panasonic technology to double color sensitivity in digital cameras
Panasonic says it has developed a way to dramatically increase color and light sensitivity of digital cameras. Instead of using a simple filter that separates light into a red, green and blue component, blocking more than half of the light, Panasonic proposes separating light via tiny prism-like color splitters into white, red and blue, with no loss of light. It's not clear yet when the new technology will reach products. -- Posted Monday, February 4, 2013 by chb
