According to DPR's news story the S-1 has a 16mp BSI-CMOS sensor. Very interesting if that's the case (would be the largest BSI sensor yet), but think it's most likely that it's a typo.

Shame on me, but I have no clue about BSI. What does it mean?

Can it be bull-sh*t-incredible?

I think it refers to "backside illuminated" which means that all the "connections" to the photo sites are on the backside of the sensor and so there is more space for the photo sites themselves. This should result in a higher image quality.

Thank you, bro. Now I know what BSI stands for. Still, I have a problem with illumination that actually is something else.

Cheers
