3 chip camera
Jan 29, 2011

I wonder if anyone is working on a 3 chip still camera.

A prism block with 3 10meg chips cemented to it would be the equivalent of a 30 meg camera.

If the chips were small it would fit into a camera with a form factor like the old Nikon 4500 CoolPix swivel body.

The output would be the size of a 10 meg camera but each pixel would be real and unique equivalent to the quality of a 35meg single chip camera with Bayer interpolation.
