New rumoured Sony BSI Sensor for M43 cameras
« on: December 26, 2021, 11:01:58 »
 I have spotted this link to a rumoured 21Mpx BSI sensor from Sony for M43 cameras:

Certainly BSI sensors have taken a while to reach the M43 format, so let us hope that this rumour is for real.

 

Maybe we might see some of the capabilities of a Nikon Z9 in a smaller format and lighter camera?  Fingers crossed!

It's about time.

BSI is so 2017.  These days, the big camera companies are working on "Stacked Sensors", and many anticipate future releases by most of the major players to feature stacked sensors.

Why doesn't Pany and Oly put stacked sensors in their next mft bodies?   Or maybe they plan to give the Aps-c and full frame players another 5-year head start!  The next sensor in mft bodies will make or break the format, so they need to stretch and at least match what the big boys are offering in their anticipated newer models.

Yes, that is also what I believe.

Fuji XT-30 got its BSI sensor circa 2019, in fact earlier considering R&D etc

There's this recent rumour of a Stacked APC sensor https://petapixel.com/2021/09/02/fujifilms-first-stacked-back-illuminated-x-trans-sensor-coming-in-2022/
