Wow folks! Sony announced the world’s first 20 Megapixel Four Thirds format Global Shutter sensor! Will it be used by the new Olympus OMD?


Well this is exciting! Sony announced the world’s first range of global shutter sensors. This list inlcudes a new 20 Megapixel Global Shutter sensor! Damn I can see Olympus using this on their new OMD camera! Those are some incredible specs:

The IMX367LLA is a diagonal 21.6 mm (Type 4 / 3) CMOS active pixel type solid-state image sensor with a square
pixel array and 19.66 M effective pixels. This chip features a global shutter with variable charge-integration time. This
chip operates with analog 3.3 V, digital 1.2 V, and interface 1.8 V triple power supply, and has low power consumption.
High sensitivity, low dark current and low PLS characteristics are achieved.
(Applications: FA cameras, ITS cameras)
