Nikon V1's Sensor design & D400 & D700/ D4 Implications
Sep 23, 2011

The image processing technology in the V1 which is 5 times faster than a D3, with 24 Digital channels and two dedicated image processing pipelines v 12 analogue channels on the D3.

This technology is not only fast but may bring back the colour control that was only possible with expensive off sensor Analogue Digital conversion like D2x D200 and D3.

Since Nikon had the Patent for multi-channel sensors, the new sensors like the V1 could put Nikon ahead of Sony in terms of speed and IQ.

The D4 and the D400 and the D800 could be amazing.

It might be a sign of things to come. New technology in their SLR department.

Hi Dez,

Yes it looks like Nikon might have taken a quantum leap forward in their technology, even showing off the colours of natural-dye, dyed fabrics in the Nikon 1 Brochure. Something they have not done for a while.

I think the real test is if they use the same sensor technology in the D4, D800, and D400, although how they will differentiate the price levels, is another matter, unless they have even more technology up their sleeves.

Please read here. Sony has an A/D converter on chip for each colum (vertical readout) thats about 4048 A/D convarters and 12 channel digital read out. So munch for Nikon multichannel readout patent.

In 2006 Sony had a 300 Frames/sec chip. And in 2010 a 17,7 MP CMOS with 120 FPS. Full res!!

That technology is good and all but I have not seen ONE acceptable photo in the samples..No DOF..muddy colors . Photos all look like that of a P&S. NOT impressed! Of course, as suggested to being marketed to soccer moms, etc, who is really going to know the difference. Lets see some good head shots with detail!!!!

I wonder if the rapid sensor and processing technology improvements are causing them to rework and rework the next generation of cameras, and slowing their release?

The dPreview samples are particularly P&S quality, no DOF field work, boring tilted horizons, etc.
