Sony has announced a new 1/2.3 type imaging chip that can capture 12-megapixel still images at up to 42 frames per second. The Sony IMX078CQK imager is a 12.40-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor developed for consumer digital still cameras. “The IMX078CQK achieves still imaging with both high sensitivity and high resolution as well as full HD video imaging,” Sony says. Furthermore, it will expand the possibilities for expressive imaging provided by digital still cameras.” Given the small, 1.55 ?m pixel pitch we are a bit doubtful about the sensor’s performance in the noise department, but we’ll reserve judgment until the chip appears in an actual product.
