A “source” at DChome reports that Panasonic is in charge of production of the new organic sensor while Fuji will offer the full technology knowledge in exchange. But we still don’t know when the first organic sensor will find their way in Mass Production MFT cameras…
On paper the new Organic sensor has the following advantages over conventional sensors:
1) it has only 1/6 of the thickness of the current sensors
2) Increased Dynamic range of 88dB
3) 1,2 ISO stops more sensitive
4) range of incident angles of 60 degrees, efficiently utilizing light entering at an angle for faithful color reproduction with no color mixing. It also gives greater flexibility in lens designs, facilitating the reduction of overall camera size.
