Patent: Electronic Curved Sensor

Another patent showing a curved sensor design from Canon has appeared. A previous patent showed how a curved sensor could help reduce vignetting. This patent shows how to electronically bend the sensor.

We’ve now seen a few patents for curved sensor technology, so we expect we’re going to see some sort of implementation in the future. Read more. . . .
