Canon admits that the sensor may be useful for medical and security purposes. Unlikely to see it in digital camera. I think for sensitivity in digital imaging to take a big step forward, a new base material for sensor like Graphene would be needed. In fact, it may be more practical for sensor makers to use Graphene in their current process than making organic sensor, which Fujifilm is very likely to use in the next iteration of the X-series cameras.

ijustloveshooting: Fuji X series use 16.2mp sony nex5N-5R-6 sensor right?

I think the base sensor comes from Sony. The X-Trans is just a color filter array.

Disappointing high ISO performance. Not quite there yet to justify the high pricing. The cheap Sony A3000 has much better high ISO performance.

Better to have it with the new 20mp sensor from Sony A3000. Then X-E2 then come late in 2014 with the new organic sensor.

GabrielZ: Enough with all this low-end stuff, enthusiasts want to see an X-Pro2 and X-E2 come out - its time.

I would rather wait longer for X-E2 to come with organic sensor.

What if the Fujifilm X-A1 had the same sensor as this A3000? A great prospect for those who want a budget rangefinder format APS-C camera.

The warning is the air for the over-priced m4/3 cameras.

With its expertise in consumer electronics, Casio shows it has the potential to produce top notch digital cameras.

The sale of dslr is unlikely to slow down in the next few years. Nikon and Canon are making cheap consumer grade lightweight dslr. When the average consumer wants to buy a good camera, dslr offers the best value in terms of IQ, features and price.

They could have made it into a very competitive camera, but it isn't. The only thing they can play around with is the price. They didn't learn from the K01 disaster.

At last, a company has produced a tiltable LCD only camera without making it look like a cheap P&S and without astronomical pricing. Good job.

Clear Photos in Dim Light: New Sensor a Thousand Times More Sensitive Than Current Camera Sensors

@GabrielZ

Not to over blow the potential of Graphene since it is a very new discovery. The team that won the Nobel prize in 2010 obtained Graphene by sticking a scotch tape on a piece of Graphite.

But companies that don't ignore it but make full use of it will benefit the most. I can see Samsung going all out over it.

@Dheori

I'm sorry. Graphene is obtained from Graphite. You have to mine for Graphite. Some mines have closed because of environmental concerns.

The graphene sensor was designed with existing CMOS manufacturing process in mind. In other words, the CMOS fab can start to produce graphene sensors just by changing the base material.

I think small sensors will benefit greatly from this. We can have the small body and lens of m4/3 without compromising on high ISO performance. Big sensors will also benefit from the very thin graphene layer. I can foresee two problems. Firstly, 2/3 of graphene patents are held by just 3 countries, which may explain why the Japanese companies are not too eager to jump into it. Secondly, the mining of graphene is as environmentally destructive as mining of rare earth.

A graphene sensor only 1 atom thick, 1000 times more sensitive, 10 times less energy consumed, 5 times cheaper to make? I hope it succeeds commercially.

tornwald: It still seems to have a Bayer matrix and therefore Foveon remains superior for me. Interesting development although, let's see how this works in practice.

It could well be organic sensor with X-trans array.

davidrm: Well.... If you wander around one major haunt of the offensively rich, which is St Tropez, France, you'lll note that cameras don't figure very high on the list of rich person status symbols. And when they do, it will much more likely be the ridiculous sight of some 60 year old Russian multi millionaire snapping his, ahem, "daughter" with a Canon 1Dx and a huge L lens. Not a Leica in sight. No end of Ferraris, Aston Martins, huge Yachts, Gucci, Versace, etc etc, but zero Leica. If the rich guy status symbol theory actually panned out, this would be the no-brainer location for a Leica store. But no.

Not that I own or want a Leica, just an observation.

There are 3 Leica stores in Singapore.
