Sony announces a new type 1/2.6 22.5-Megapixel Exmoor RS sensor. This is the industry’s first stacked CMOS image sensor with built-in hybrid autofocus and 3-Axis electronic image stabilization.
The IMX318 comes with 22.5 effective megapixels, and it boasts a more compact size, greater image quality, and higher performance.
The brand new kind of sensor has electronic 3-Axis stabilization that corrects both, in camera shake and lens distortion. The demo videos and full press text can be seen below.
