Sony has announced a new 1-inch type sensor with an effective pixel count of 20.48MP.
The "IMX183CLK-J/CQJ-J" CMOS image sensors has an all-pixel global reset function, which reduces rolling shutter effect when panning.
The image sensor uses a high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with a 2.4 µm square unit pixel. Sony has developed both color (IMX183CQJ-J) and monochrome (IMX183CLK-J) verions of the product.
The chip can also record 4K 2160p video at up to 60 frames per second and output 12-bit full-resolution images at readout speeds approaching 22 frames per second.
The new sensor is expectd to be part of Sony's RX100 line of high-end compact cameras and RX10 superzoom models.
