Panasonic Develops Sensor With 100x Wider Dynamic Range Than Traditional CMOS

Today Panasonic has announced that they've created new 'wide-dynamic-range' technology capable of improving 'simultaneous-capture wide dynamic range' 100 times wider than normal by using an organic photoconductive film (shortened to OPF) with a CMOS image sensor.

Colour reproduction will supposedly be more accurate in high contrast situations, the sensor will be able to read more exposure data, yet the size of the sensor won't actually have to be any bigger.

Just as interesting is a recent nano-optics breakthough using graphene ...

"a team from the Swinburne University of Technology has developed a graphene microlens one billionth of a meter thick that can take sharper images of objects the size of a single bacterium and opens the door to improved mobile phones, nanosatellites, and computers".

I foresee great times ahead for image sensors. Organic photo-conductive films working with nano-optics working with ...

Waiting with popcorn for the "Let's delay the full-frame until the graphene OPF sensor is ready" threads.

It sounds like some kind of transition glasses type built in, variable neutral density filter.
