Sony’s New Sensor Brings DSL-R To Smartphones
Sony has just launched a sensor that will make its smartphone cameras better. The Exmor RS IMX230 is a stacked CMOS sensor that squeezes an effective 21 megapixels into a 1/2.4-inch sized form factor. It has built-in 192-point phase detection autofocus, which will keep fast moving subjects sharp. The new chip also has integrated HDR for high resolution stills and 4K video to save shots that are overly backlit or in shadow. An Exmor sensor is used in Apple's iPhone 6, along with other Android phones like the OnePlus One. The new Exmor RS model will appear in April 2015.
