A US company this week unveiled digital camera technology that it claims gives picture quality that is "just like film".
Digital imaging firm Foveon said its F19 sensor, a 1/1.8in 4.5megapixel CMOS direct image sensor which incorporates the company's X3 stacked-pixel technology, captures colour in three layers.
According to Foveon, its X3 direct image sensor captures red, green and blue light at every pixel location and is the first to make use of silicon's inherent colour separation property.
The company said the X3 technology's stacked-pixel design eliminates the need for colour interpolation and blur filters.
The Foveon X3 F19 direct image sensor will be included in the Polaroid x530 consumer digital camera, available this September in the US for $399.
