Myth of the Organic Sensor
10 year after the joint Panasonic and Fujifilm announcement, where the organic sensor was first unveiled to the masses with great optimism and claims of glorious performances and dynamic range, we haven’t seen anything coming to the market, expect for a camcorder prototype shown by Panasonic back in 2019.
The last update we got was back in October 2021, when Panasonic unveiled a 35MP organic Super35 CMOS sensor with global shutter.
Well, today we got another update from Panasonic, where they announced the “development of organic CMOS image sensor technology that realizes good color reproduction even under all kinds of light sources“. You can read the full press release below.
Is Fujifilm Still Involved?
Unlike the first announcement in 2013, that was made by Panasonic and Fujifilm together, this time it’s only Panasonic, who released a press release regarding the organic sensor development.
So the question I guess is if Fujifilm has pulled out of the organic sensor development.
The last statement in this regard comes from Panasonic, who in October 2018 said they are still working on it with Fujifilm.
So at least until 2018, Fujifilm and Panasonic did work on it together, but I don’t know if that’s the case still today. I will try to figure that out and in case let you know.
