1,000 Photos a Second: Sony Working on Affordable High-Speed Image Sensors

Sony built a dominant position in image sensors by helping people take high-quality photos with smartphones and cameras. Now, according to the latest news surfaced at Bloomberg, Sony is working on the affordable high-speed image sensors which can process 1,000 images a second. That’s Amazing!

Now Sony is working with Nissan Motor Co. and a Tokyo University professor on the amazing ffordable high-speed image sensors, which can take photos at least 10 times faster than the human eye can see.

The high-speed image sensors that can capture 1,000 frames per second do exist, but the cost is too high and the size is too big, so they are impractical for mass-market uses. The cameras with this kind of sensor cost from $1000 to $100,000. Now Sony has developed a way to stack the circuit and sensor, boosting speed and resolution in a smaller package. The typical high-end camera can shoot about 60 photos per second while the Sony can achieve 900 frames per second with prototypes.

We believe that Sony has the power to take the high-speed image sensors mainstream in the next two years!

Stay tuned for more info.
