Re: curved sensor for RX2 is ready!

Bending wafers of silicon semiconductor is a neat trick but that one does only seem to be 'curved' in one plane so it wouldn't be able to offset all (real or imagined) artefacts. I'd also imagine you'd need to use lenses that are designed to focus across a specific size of arc rather than a generic plane.

A circular and concave image sensor would be an interesting trick though, allowing you to point your lens wherever you want, snap away without a need to ever rotate the camera body and then to crop to a portrait, landscape, square or circular image as desired.
