Sony Adds Two 8K Full Frame Sensors
DIY Photography reported that Sony’s component business has added two (44.72 MP and 61.17MP) full frame 8K sensors to its product list. The 44MP version is reported to have high-speed 8K capabilities with up to 61.25 fps in 12 bit mode available to readout. The sensors are not yet announced in any cameras. Although the higher resolution version has nearly twice the pixels needed for 8K, some high quality film makers like to capture in higher resolution and the downsample to get smoother images and some noise reduction. Sony said that the sensors should appear in DSCs and consumer camcorders.
