Bye Bye iPhoto, Bye Bye Aperture, Hello Photos

Wed April 8, 2015

iPhoto, gone. Aperture, gone soon. New, available today, is Apple’s new photo app called, simply, Photos. Photos is free (but there’s a catch) and replaces both iPhoto and Aperture. The key takeaway here is that, in case you haven’t noticed, Apple is moving everything to the cloud. The pictures you save in Photos live in the cloud, iCloud.

The good news is that your iCloud photo library can be viewed from any device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac), anytime you want. Any edits you make using one device is immediately available to be edited or viewed using another device. Or, view them on iCloud.com. It’s instant sharing, no need to wait to get home and upload. All the editing tools you expect are here: straighten the horizon, adjust exposure, brightness and contrast, apply filters, etc.

The bad news is that you have to buy space from Apple iCloud to store all your photos. Like Apple says, “fill your library, not your device.” That library will quickly fill up the free 5GB of iCloud storage Apple gives you. Then you will need to buy more storage space. Storage plans start at $0.99 per month (for 20 GB, $3.99 for 200 GB, $9.99 for 500 GB, and $19.99 for 1TB) and you can go up to 1TB. You can choose to store optimized images or full-size images locally to your mac. We recommend that you save your original full-size images using Finder (or Image Capture) and then decide if you want to import some or all of them in Photos for sharing.

Upgrade to OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and Photos will be installed. Though the Photos icon will replace the iPhoto icon on the Dock, iPhoto is still available from the Launchpad.

Bye Bye Love. Bye Bye Happiness. Hello Loneliness. — The Everly Brothers.

Sony Will Bolster Production of Stacked CMOS Image Sensors in 2016: Higher Image Quality & Advanced Functionality in a Compact Size for Mobile Devices

Tue April 7, 2015

In 2012, Sony developed a next-generation back-illuminated CMOS image sensor which “embodies the continuous evolution of the camera.”

This next-generation image sensor layers the pixel section containing formations of back-illuminated structure pixels onto chips containing the circuit section for signal processing, which is in place of supporting substrates for conventional back-illuminated CMOS image sensors.

Left to right: Conventional back-illuminated CMOS image sensor; Stacked CMOS image sensor. Conventional CMOS image sensors "mount the pixel section and analog logic circuit on top of the same chip, which require numerous constraints when wishing to mount the large-scale circuits such as measures to counter the circuit scale and chip size, measures to suppress noise caused by the layout of the pixel and circuit sections, and optimizing the characteristics of pixels and circuit transistors." 2012 Image by Sony

Sony has succeeded in establishing a structure that layers the pixel section containing formations of back-illuminated structure pixels over the chip affixed with mounted circuits for signal processing, which is in place of supporting substrates used for conventional back-illuminated CMOS image sensors. By this stacked structure, large-scale circuits can now be mounted keeping small chip size. Furthermore, as the pixel section and circuit section are formed as independent chips, a manufacturing process can be adopted, enabling the pixel section to be specialized for higher image quality while the circuit section can be specialized for higher functionality, thus simultaneously achieving higher image quality, superior functionality and a more compact size. In addition, faster signal processing and lower power consumption can also be achieved through the use of leading process for the chip containing the circuits.

http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/News/Press/201201/12-009E/index.html

Features of stacked CMOS image sensor

  • Large-scale signal processing circuits required for higher image quality and better functionality are built-in.
  • More compact image sensor chip size.
  • Even higher image quality of the pixel section by adopting manufacturing processes specialized for superior image quality.
  • Faster speeds and lower power consumption by adopting the leading process for the circuit section.

Stacked CMOS image sensors deliver superior image quality and advanced functionality in a compact size.

This is an update to the previous blog, New Sony Exmor RS IMX230 for Smartphone Photography: Industry’s First Stacked CMOS Image Sensor with an Image Plane Phase Detection Signal Processing Function for High-Speed AF.

Sony has set a goal to develop a “Super Reality” sensor that surpasses human vision to achieve high speeds and high picture quality as depicted in this diagram here.

Future Image Sensor Evolution Axes: "The increasing popularity of smartphones means a greater diversification of camera usage. Sony would like to specify a new evolution axis of higher performance in addition to this evolution axis. Sony meets the customers' expectation for greater differentiation in final products with the stacked CMOS image sensor that has the superb mechanism to provide new ways of enjoying images.
