New Canon Patent - Curved Image Sensor

The Japanese photography blog, Egami, reports that Canon is developing and patenting curved sensor designs. The research is to understand better how light falls off the sides of the image sensors. They can learn a bit from Samsung as well, which has pioneered curved monitors and HDTVs for a few years now.

  • Published 2016.11.24
  • Filing date 2015.4.3
  • The central portion of the light falloff is not noticeable to the flat shape
