Sony Vintage CCD Uses Non-Bayer CFA

EE Video Blog's Youtube video teardown of 1985 Sony CCD-V8AF-E 8mm video camera reveals that its CCD uses non-Bayer color filter. So, it appears that Sony F65, ClearVid and other non-bayer CFAs for video applications have a long tradition. I wonder if CMYG video sensors too had many different versions in production.

  1. I don't think the Bayer pattern was as widely adopted as it is today until the patent expired.
