Sony has up to date its sensor web page and shared the small print of a lot of new picture sensors it is made. Certain sufficient, a number of of them bear a hanging resemblance to sensors inside different producers cameras.

One sensor specifically, a 26-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) APS-C chip nicknamed IMX571, bears an uncanny resemblance to the sensor used inside Fujifilm’s X-T3 digicam. Whereas Fujifilm hasn’t confirmed it is a Sony sensor contained in the X-T3, Common Supervisor of Fujifilm UK, Theo Georgiades, did say it wasn’t a Samsung sensor used contained in the digicam, as some believed to be the case, leaving little doubt that it was Sony who manufactured the sensor. The specs listed beneath this picture sensor on Sony’s web site all however affirm that hypothesis.

It is also price noting that there is a good probability we’ll see Sony construct one thing round this sensor as nicely. The a6300 and a6500 each use the identical sensor as Fujifilm’s X-T2, so it is not a stretch to think about Sony might be releasing one or two A600-series cameras utilizing the 26-megapixel BSI picture sensor discovered contained in the X-T3.

The BSI IMX461 sensor has been within the works for a very long time and based mostly on Fujifilm’s announcement that it’s presently creating a 100-megapixel medium format digicam, it is possible that is the sensor that might be inside it. The sensor has 3.76 micron pixels and encompasses a most frame-rate of as much as six frames per second.

The IMX299 is a bit more durable to hit on the pinnacle, however based mostly on it being 11-megapixls, having 4.63 micron pixels, and a 60 frames per second readout, it is nearly actually the sensor discovered contained in the Panasonic GH5S.

Final however not least is the IMX272. This 20-megapixel 4 Thirds-type sensor has 3.Three micron pixels and a most readout of 60 frames per second. This has been confirmed by TechInsights to be sensor contained in the Panasonic GH5.
