Sony Announces New Camera Sensors With HDR Movie Function. Video Demo.
Sony has announced two new CMOS image sensors that have HDR video capability. This would be a huge advance for Sony cameras. An HDR feature would be a great option to have for situations like the one above. There was not too much info in the press release, however the video speaks volumes. I expect to see more about this at NAB 2012.
I picked this up from @SonyAlphaRumors on Twitter.
Here is the boring press release from Sony.
“Tokyo, Japan – January 23, 2012 – Sony Corporation (“Sony”) today announced the development of two CMOS image sensor models designed for use in smartphones and other devices. They are equipped with Sony’s unique “RGBW Coding” function which allows images to be captured with low noise and high picture quality even in low-light conditions. They also contain Sony’s “HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie” function which allows brilliant color to be captured even in bright settings. Sony has also developed a model with built-in signal processing functionality, an element that usually requires external embedment.”
