Making sense of sensors: Part 1 of 2

Published in Technology & Computing

Film always used to be the main thing that determined how a photograph looked. Now, it's the sensor. So camera manufacturers have taken on a huge extra responsibility!

This sensor sees everything

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

I don't mean to be unnecessarily cruel about the work of camera manufacturers – taking an electronic component such as an imaging sensor and making it into a usable tool is far from trivial. Still, the absolute performance of cameras is determined by what you can get off the lump of silicon behind the lens
