p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sony Foveon-like sensor patent


"Egami spotted the next Sony sensor patent describing a Foveon alike sensor. With Foveon alike I mean a RGB 3-layer image sensor that in case of the Sony patent also includes tilted(!) pixels. As you know the advantage of such a 3 layer sensor is the color accuracy, sharpness and larger pixels (or possibility to have more pixels on the same sensor size). Now, itís hard to understand from the google translation why these pixels have been titled. But if you saw some test of the latest generation Sigma Foveon sensor cameras than you will easily notice that at Low ISO the sensor really rocks! (while there are still massive noise problems on High ISO images)."

I personally believe Foveon will get out the case study to become a gold standard.

Maybe the titled pixel allows greater angle of light to hit the sensor? (to reduce corner color shift issue)
