New super-sensitive chip coming up
New super-sensitive chip coming up.
I almost put a question mark after that, because in my experience, when we hear about technologies not on the market yet, it's really not worth it to hold your breath waiting for them!
But if it arrives soon, especially in real cameras, it sounds really great.
And if it also has a much wider dynamic range (tolerance for contrast), then it's excellent. (Of course it will need to be competitive with current chips in image quality, speed, etc.)
In fact this is one of the reasons for my bitter comment in paragraph two: back in 2000, I read with excitement about a chip coming up which would radically increase the dynamic range of digital cameras. Well, where is it now? Huh? Huh? Huh? :)
