Sony in sensor manufacturing race

In a race of sensor manufacturing, Sony is all out to make sure that the next generation cameras use their sensors. They are getting ready to release 2 new Full Frame Sensors which can be used by third party manufacturers as well.

According to sonyalpharumors, Sony will release 2 new Full Frame 16-bit sensors, one with 60MP and the other with 36MP.They say that this is from a source which has been 100% correct with the rumors shared in the past.

Sensor 1:

60MP
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
4.6FPS@16bit
12FPS@14bit
8k30P@12bit
8K60p@10bit
4k60p@12bit
FHD300P@10bit

Sensor 2:

36MP
10FPS@16bit
60FPS@10bit
on-chip PDAF

The source also says;

“1: Weighted pixel binning: improve the image quality when shooting videos with pixel binning. Already featured in a lot of Sony sensors.

2: A new dual-gain ADC mode: improve the dynamic range by almost 2 stops. The sensor loses 50% speed when using it. Details not known yet. Already in XT3’s sensor.

3: Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR): It’s like bracketing, but you can shoot 2 frames almost at the same time! (The minimum time interval is only 1/6000 seconds). All the new sensors with 3.76um pixel size have this function.”

These two sensors will be on the market soon and will be available for Sony’s own products as well as for third party companies.
