Samsung said to soon introduce 14.6-megapixel CMOS image sensor. What does it mean?

Doesn't add up

It sounds like they are talking about the K20D sensor but the date doesn't make any sense. If they are referring to a new sensor, say a FF one and it has only 14.6 MP's that is great news. Can you imagine what the noise would be like on a FF sensor with the technology of the K20D sensor? I think I'll hold off on buying anything until we hear more.

Regards,
Ken

I'm pretty sure this is just a mistake by Digitimes. It's the GX20 and the K20D's sensor... :-)

Reading it carefully, it sounds like Samsung may be releasing just another old camera in Taiwan in June, my guess would be a 200D equivalent.

If they drop the FF bomb, it just might coincide with the rumours that their FF DSLR is only in the design phase. But it does say they will "introduce" the cmos it in June...I guess it will be introduced sitting on a table somewhere, because there's no product to use it in.

And are samsung going after omnivision or the DSLR market, or do they plan to take out both in one fell swoop?

They said about 2 sensors. There were rumors about another 15 Mp sensor.
1. 14.6 Mp - maybe new version of K20D sensor with higher fps or low-end sensor.
2. Higher resolution sensor - maybe FF.

June 2008. Not January. I thought that it could be mistake, but it's well-known web-site.


I think so.

Say they can release GX-20 Super / K20D Super with 5 fps + Announce FX sensor (e.g. 20-30 Mpx)

My personal take on this is that it is for a camera that will exceed FF. But then again, I could be wrong.

My take on the article is that Samsung is going to be selling to K20D sensor to other camera builders.

Just like sony still sells its sensors to other camera builders.

I doubt they are talking about a FF sensor.

Maybe you're right. But they said about second one - higher resolution sensor too.
