In recent times, much importance is given to computational photography when it comes to obtaining higher quality photos, but the truth is that to obtain these photos, you also have to have good raw material, and that is where the evolution of the sensors continues to be. key .
Samsung has presented the new ISOCELL GN1, a photographic 50-megapixel sensor that according to the manufacturer stands out for having faster autofocus. In addition, it also integrates Tetracell technology that allows the sensor to behave better in low light conditions.
50-megapixel sensor: Size does matter. At least the pixel one
In this new 50-megapixel sensor Samsung boasts a pixel size of 1.2 microns , and Tetracell technology allows the four-pixel signal to be combined into one, “doubling the pixel size of the sensor to 2.4 microns and quadrupling the sensitivity to the light to take brighter 12.5-megapixel photos. “
The new Samsung sensor will compete with the new Sony IMX689 that has a size of 1.22 microns and a resolution of 48 Mpixels, and it will be interesting to see how one and the other behave in the mobiles that are integrating them from now on .
The ISOCELL GN1 is the first Samsung sensor to combine Tetracell technology with Dual Pixel for that quick autofocus. So fast, says Samsung, that it is possible to achieve focus speeds similar to those of DSLR cameras .
Added to these options is a new “intelligent” selection system for the optimum ISO level , real-time HDR support to capture the same image at different exposures simultaneously, and electronic stabilization (EIS) to avoid image jitter. The sensor is also capable of capturing 8K video at 30 fps.
