Impressive, Japanese NHK is announcing a true 133-megapixel camera sensor. The cmos-module can record video in an 8K resolution, the successor to Ultra HD at 4K. According NHK the sensor will be unveiled the 29th of May for a wide audience. The company already shared that is has the 133 MPixels sensor and a Bayer rgb color filter merged together into one package design.
By handling all RGB color information on one chip the overall size for its design will be smaller opposed to existing 8K camera's which pretty much alll are using three 33 Megapixel sensors, one sensor per color-channel.
The new cmos-sensor has a surface area of 43,2mm diagonally and can handle up-to 60 frames per second at 7680x4320 pixels. NHK did not announce a price just yet, it didn't announce which manufacturers would use the sensor either.
BIG puppy chip
I wonder what the yield is...
Of course they will steal the cameras with the chip for their salvage value.
I want a higher frame rate, data collected all at once.
In the area of the Nvidia Graphic card GPU chips.
But, I said to myself when they showed the Zapruder Film "Wow, Look how GRAINY that image is, imagine how things would be different if they had a Hi-Res Camera."
The Very Next Day the Boston Bombing happened and we got the Security Cam pics of Joker and Speed Bump.
STILL GRAINY AS HELL!
I said to myself, it has been 50 years and we have made 0 headway!
"I want the one with the bigger GBs."
be back later.
Perfect for satellite imagery where they can retroactively track you or your vehicle backwards in time.
