According to multiple reports from various online sources, Sony yesterday announced that it has launched the world’s smallest CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) image sensor for 4K resolution and surveillance cameras, named as Sony IMX415 sensor.
According to the online sources, the Sony IMX415 pixel size is 20% smaller than before. Now it can also capture clear images in the dark. This means that it would be particularly useful for night time surveillance. Such a sensor would work great for monitoring cameras and such equipment.
The “IMX415” with effective pixels up to 8.46 megapixels has begun production. Hence supply samples would hit the market soon. The sample does not include a tax price of $23.
In addition, Sony also announced the image sensor Sony IMX485, with even better shooting performance in the dark. Sony will start the IMX485 sample supplies in July. The sample does not include a tax price of $93.
So, guys, there’s a little probability that we would see this sensor in anything other than monitoring equipment. But there’s always scope for something different!
