Sony Publishes Few More Bits of Info on its Curved Sensor

DPReview quotes Japanese-language Nikkkei article with Sony talking on its curved sensor plans. The article is accompanied by a low resolution image from the curved senasor and says that Sony has difficulties combining curved sensor with "high power optical zoom lens." So, Sony considers to use a digital zoom instead.

  2. Having a curving railway track makes the image appear far more distoted than it actually is

    1. I was wondering about this distortion impression. The is for sure the railway track but if you look at the fields, lines are clearly not straight at all. I would have been curious of seen the same picture with same lens but non curvative sensor to see the difference.

    2. I too would love to see the original as I suspect the steps are curved as well and the green sign does not seem to curve but without it its just speculation.
