This camera breaks the laws of physics

Published in Technology & Computing

Hot on the heels of Nokia's 808 PureView, a smartphone with an over-endowed 41 MegaPixel sensor that allows smooth, lossless digital zooming, comes the Sony NEX-EA50EH. It's definitely not a phone, but does share one fascinating feature in common

Most large-sensor cameras use a Bayer colour filter pattern to allow full colour images to be output - after "debayering". This entire process is now pretty routine but unfortunately what is also routine is the amount of light lost through the colour filter process. Less light means more noise, and noise is what ultimately limits the low-light capabilities all cameras
