Sony IMX472-AAJK sensor offers huge frame rates in 4/3ds format!

Sony has released some white paper specs on a new Micro 4/3rds sensor that is as of now, the most advanced ever on the format considering the mix of Backside illumination, Stacked technology and high resolution color at 10 bits on full sensor read outs. The frame rates offered are also quite impressive with up to 1139fps at 0.46 Megapixels or 1760px Horizontal x 262px Vertical on the fastest range and 121fps at the full sensor area read-out at 20.9MP.

The Panasonic GH6 is coming later this year and it is estimated that this new sensor is actually the one that will be used on that camera. If Lumix technology can make full use of the sensor specs even for small fractions of time, we could have a killer slow motion mass produced camera.  The VFR mode on Panasonic Lumix cameras has always been more than acceptable and they could breathe new life into the format if these sensor specs are used to their fullest. We expect at least 1080p at 240fps which will be a slightly stretched delivery from the 1760 x 1318 240.2fps mode listed on the sensor specs → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Galaxy S7 Rumor Suggests 240fps Video!


We usually do not take much credibility to rumored specs and devices until they are close to release as it is usually the time when the big leaks happen.  In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship phone we got a rumor of what could be an interesting development when it comes to the slow motion capability of the phone’s camera.

The feature set according to our source identified as only “Rampart27” claims that the Galaxy S7 will have the most advanced camera yet in a Galaxy phone with the following rumored specs:

  • Quad HD screen 2560 x 1440 pixels same as Current S6 flagship.
  • Touch Sensitive Pressure Screen like the iPhone 6s
  • 20 Megapixel New Sensor with larger Photodiode Wells.
  • 4k Video 30fps or 25fps
  • 1080p video at 120fps, 60fps and 30fps.
  • 720p Video at 30fps, 60fps and or 240fps
  • USB Type-C Connector
  • Octacore Samsung CPU or Snapdragon Latest
  • February or March Release 2016
  • Several variants including, plain and edge, edge+

What interests us of course is the slow motion capability and if it is for real the 120fps at 1080p and 240fps at 720p would put the phone in firm footing for the best slow motion flagship phone.  It is of course only a rumor but seems plausible specs wise as it does not go overboard with crazy numbers and more of a continuation of refinement in the line of the Galaxy flagship phones.

We will keep our eyes open for new rumors on these and other phones as the new year’s releases start to leak before CES 2016.
