Photos that you took at night always get blur? To solve this common problem, the famous American photographic giant, Kodak has announced an advancement in image sensor technology that will help to redefines light sensitivity, improve performance in low light conditions, the new technology which has been in development for nearly five years.


The Kodak’s new technology adds a clear or “panchromatic” pixel which is more sensitive to the RGB (red, green, blue) pixels, bringing forth a larger amount of light toward the sensor and enabling the camera to capture more of the light spectrum. Besides, the new technology that able to increase light sensitivity of existing image sensors by two to four times also offers a faster shutter speed which reduces motion blur while images move.

“This represents a new generation of image sensor technology and addresses one of the great challenges facing our industry – how to capture crisp, clear digital images in a poorly lit environment,” said Chris McNiffe, General Manager of Kodak’s Image Sensor Solutions group. “This is a truly innovative approach to improving digital photography in all forms, and it highlights Kodak’s unique ability to differentiate its products by delivering advanced digital technologies that really make a difference to the consumer.”

With Kodak’s high-sensitivity image sensor technology, you might no longer to worry anymore during taking the photoshots at night. In addition, you can expect to see the first product using the new technology by early 2008.
