"Distortable" Sensor, Stretchable Lens! :-o



See this latest report at the DPR:-

Wow, what a R&D result! :-o No patent has been filed yet, though.

Maybe years later, with a fixed focal lens the camera can zoom (either with the sensor or the lens). With a fixed lens and sensor (for their positions), the camera can focus (like the human eye). With a lens with pronounced curved image projection (e.g., the DA15), the (error in the) field curvature can be compensated!

Btw, what is meant by "studio image quality" by a cameraphone? ;->

Anyway, tomorrow is always full of excitements! :-D
