Samsung, with the launch of the Tizen Samsung NX1 Smart Camera, has introduced a new 28 megapixel (MP) APS-C CMOS image sensor for digital cameras, which is said to offer superior light absorption thanks to the back-side illuminated (BSI) pixel technology and 65-nanometer (nm) low-power copper process.

 

“To satisfy the increasing market need for high-end image sensors in digital cameras, Samsung has introduced this new imager, which features excellent higher resolution, superior image quality, and faster shooting speed with low power consumption,” said Kyushik Hong, vice president of System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics. “Based on its leadership in CMOS imaging technologies, Samsung will continue to address new trends in camera sensor markets.”

 

The new S5KVB2 is designed into Samsung’s new compact system camera, the NX1, and which is currently being showcased at Photokina 2014 in Cologne, Germany, September 16 to 21.

  1. I don't really care about the higher resolution (after a certain point more pixel density starts to become pointless at best), but if the new sensor allows for better high ISO performance, it might be nice to see it in various cameras in the future. I shoot Pentax, and they've purchased sensors from Samsung before, so perhaps this will appear in an upcoming Pentax camera. Of course they are under a different parent company now (Ricoh) so I don't know how much their past dealings with Samsung will mean. Still, they have to buy sensors from somebody, and that usually means either Sony or Samsung for companies that don't make their own sensors. (For example, Canon makes their own sensors while Nikon purchases them.)
