48MP SENSOR INTRODUCED BY LEICA SENSOR MANUFACTURER CMOSIS





Advanced Packaging   


CMOSIS, the manufacturer of the sensors for many of the top Leica cameras, recently introduced a new sensor.  With a size of 36.43 x 27.62mm, slightly largerthan a conventional full frame sensor, it has a resolution of 48MP.  While that is quite impressive in itself, it can also capture video at 8K at 30fps and 4K at 60fps.  In addition it features a global shutter which eliminates the image distortion common with a rolling shutter when shooting fast moving objects.

CMOSIS explains, “The CMV50000 is a high speed CMOS image sensor with 7920 x 6004 effective pixels (47.5Mp) developed for machine vision and video applications. The image array consists of 4.6μm pipelined 8T global shutter pixels which allow exposure during read out, while performing true CDS (Correlated Double Sampling) operation.”

On their blog, PetaPixel writes, “This monster of a sensor wasn’t actually designed for photo and videographers—CMOSIS created it to replace the high pixel count CCD sensors used in many machine-vision cameras and high-end security cams—but it doesn’t take a big mental leap to imagine the potential uses for creatives who refuse to sacrifice resolution for speed or visa versa.

We rarely see any information regarding the cost of high performance sensors.  Therefore it is interesting to note that this new CEMOSIS unit is currently available for  approximately $3,800.

Considering the CMOSIS-Leica connection, the thought of Leicas with 48MP resolution comes naturally.  Even though the resolution of current Leica cameras is more than enough for most applications, consumer pressure and the need to be able to compete at top levels might very well lead to higher resolution Leicas in the future.

The press release from Leica:

Leica Camera is proud to introduce a special edition of the Leica Sofort “LimoLand by Jean Pigozzi”. Designed by the renowned French-Italian photographer, entrepreneur, art collector and philanthropist, Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi, the idea for this camera was born during Pigozzi’s visit to Leitz Park in Wetzlar, Germany.

The front and rear of this special edition Sofort features the vibrant graphics of ‘Mr. Limo’ – the logo of the LimoLand fashion label established by Pigozzi in 2007. ‘Mr. Limo’ is the name of the colorful character that represents Pigozzi’s fashion label.

The Leica Sofort “LimoLand by Jean Pigozzi” is packaged with a matching shoulder strap made by Artisan & Artist and 2 packs of Leica color film. The easy slider strap features the ‘Mr. Limo’ design on one end. It can be adjusted very quickly and easily by pulling on the logo. The strap ends and protective tabs are made from leather and the strap itself is made from premium quality red nylon.

The technical features of the Leica Sofort “LimoLand by Jean Pigozzi” are the same as the camera’s mint, orange and white serial versions.

The camera is priced at $395 and will begin shipping in November. Leica Store Miami is currently accepting pre-orders, either by calling 305-921-4433, emailing us or clicking the link below:
