Who makes Canon/Nikon DSP processors
May 20, 2012

Is the Digic processor used by Canon actually designed by Canon and is the Expeed processor of Nikon designed by Nikon? Are they possibly off-the-shelf components designed and created by another company?

I am kind of curious in that, with my limited knowledge, I cannot think why the camera manufacturers would go to the effort of designing a sophisticated DSP when they already have enough issues dealing with their raison d'ĂȘtre which is the sensors.
