Samsung details the future of ISOCELL dual cameras

Peter, 04 July 2017

Last week, Samsung introduced the ISOCELL image sensor brand. A recent presentation reveals some additional details and gives us a peek at Samsung’s plans.

The Dual camera setup in particular can be configured in three different ways – Zoom, Depth sensing and Low Light shooting. This will make it the most versatile in the lineup. The company also offers to help others with custom dual camera designs on the sensor and software levels.

The Slim line will benefit from Samsung’s silicon node advantages. It claims “superior image quality” with small pixels built on a 28nm node, while most others are on a 40/55nm node (for comparison, the Galaxy S7 camera used a 65nm sensor).

Such cameras will go beyond the smartphone – Samsung’s recent bid to be a car technology supplier means that the multiple cameras on modern cars can use ISOCELL sensors. These specialized automotive sensors will offer excellent low-light performance with a high dynamic range and high temperature endurance (car tech needs to be more rugged than pocket tech).

Thanks for the tip, Michel!

its not exposure per se, it's ISO. that's because the sensor is not able to capture enough light (cheap/small sensors). cmos sensors able to capture enough light are still very expensive. the ones they put in your car as usually in the 1usd range....

actually no. colour temperature and contrast can easily be boosted with even the simplest of mobile apps, let alone professional photoshop programs on pc, and you get to keep the sharpness and detail of Sony sensors as well as have the saturation and...
