Sony has been working on developing a new curved sensor technology that provides superior image quality, and now we have first proof that it works. The image shows the lack of any vignetting, one of the big benefits.
Sony has demonstrated its curved sensor technology that allows for smaller lens-and-sensor modules that can deliver great image quality. This curved sensor could be a big step forward for compact digital cameras and smartphones.
Sure, you can buy a digital camera for around $100 off the shelf, but wouldn't it be more fun to build one for the same money? You can with Raspberry Pi and a touchscreen fro Adafruit, and even add Wi-Fi capability to it.
With two lenses, two sensors, and two processors, Sony's new DEV-50V Digital Recording Binoculars not only lets you see from afar, but also records Full HD video in 2D or 3D and captures 20.4-megapixel still images.
