Sony Creates Groundbreaking Backlit CMOS Sensor with Global Shutter "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Sony just announced a groundbreaking development in the world of camera image sensors: it has created a 1.46-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor that has global shutter. This is the first-ever CMOS sensor of over 1MP that has both back-illumination and global shutter.

Backside illumination (BSI) is an image sensor design that uses its arrangement of imaging elements to increase the amount of light thats captured, leading to improved low-light performance. While this type of design was previously used for things like astro cameras and security cameras, it has become a prominent technology in consumer still photography cameras.

In 2015, Sonys a7R II became the worlds first back-illuminated 35mm full frame camera. Last year, Nikons D850 became the first 45+ megapixel BSI sensor.

Those BSI CMOS sensors are all rolling shutters, though, which means the pixels in a photo arent all captured at exactly the same time but are instead captured by scanning across the scene very rapidly row-by-row. While this can produce identical results in most cases, it does cause distortions when the camera or subjects are moving rapidly during exposure.

RED and Foxconn Team Up to Make 8K Cameras at 1/3 the Price "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Cinema camera maker RED and Foxconn (best known for manufacturing the iPhone) have announced that theyre teaming up to create affordable professional-grade cinema cameras for the general public.

Nikkei reports that the two companies are aiming to slash both price tags and the physical size of cameras.

We will make cameras that will shoot professional-quality films in 8K resolution but at only a third of current prices and a third of current camera sizes, says Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou. REDs cameras are popular in the filmmaking industry but cost upwards of $30,000.

Foxconn manufactured an estimated 40% of all consumer electronics sold worldwide in 2012, and in addition to the iPhone, it manufactures well-known products like the Kindle, Nintendo 3DS, Wii, PlayStation, and Xbox. Apples products account for over half of its sales, though, and Foxconn is working to reduce its dependence on Apple by branching out to new segments, Nikkei reports.

In addition to teaming up with RED, Foxconn is also expanding into the manufacturing of camera semiconductors, putting the company in competition with Sony and its market-leading core business.

Photographer Accidentally Captures SpaceX Falcon Heavy Exhaust Plume "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Photographer Reuben Wu was at Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona last week shooting photos for his gorgeous Lux Noctis project (landscapes at night illuminated by drone-mounted LEDs) when he captured something unexpected: the exhaust plume of SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket that launched during the day.

I managed to capture the dissipating exhaust plume of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy as it left the Earths atmosphere, Wu tells PetaPixel. Had no idea it was launching that night so it was a tremendous surprise to see it fly into my shot.

The Falcon Heavy was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, during the day, so you may be wondering how this exhaust plume sneaked into Wus shot at night.

This was the final burn which took place 6 hours after launch around 7:30 pm (I always wait until dark before I make these pictures), Wu says. The second stage had 3 separate burns: the first just after launch (about 8 mins in) then it shut down, coasted for an amount of time, re-lit and burned again for a short while to alter the orbit. Then it shut down and then, six hours later it re-lit a third time for solar orbital insertion.

I was puzzled by the same thing and had to ask a friend!

Heres the same solar orbit insertion burn as seen from the MMT Observatory on Mt. Hopkins, Arizona:
