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 howto 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. . . .

Canon patent shows curved sensor design

A new patent suggests Canons engineers might be working on a curved sensor design to reduce vignetting. Japanese blog Egami reports on a patent that was released on the 24th of November and describes an image sensor design with a flat central portion, where light fall-off from the lens is not much of an issue, and curved edges, where fall-off is generally more noticeable.
