Camera sensor technology reached its peak?

3 months 1 week ago #760321 by Ontherocks
I was just thinking this morning.  When you look at new cameras to hit the market during the last year, sensors haven't really altered that much.  So is this a sign that the sensor technology has matured and towards it peak?   Is there any forecast on the horizon of what is next?

Greater resolution.

Lower image noise.

Higher dynamic range.

The quest continues.

What's really holding us back is the Bayer Filter and the RGB Color Model.

But escaping those restrictions will require a paradigm shift against a firmly entrenched method.

While it's true that sensor technology in cameras has seen significant advancements over the years, it's premature to conclude that it has reached its peak. While there haven't been major breakthroughs in sensors in the past year, this doesn't necessarily mean that the technology has matured completely. Forecasting the future of sensor technology is challenging, but there are ongoing research and development efforts aimed at improving various aspects such as resolution, dynamic range, and low-light performance. It's likely that we'll continue to see incremental improvements and innovations in sensor technology in the coming years.

I'm holding out for the sensor that will be printed in my brain, when I blink twice a photo is taken.  Stomp my right foot twice and that photo is printed out.  :rofl:

Hardly, we see advancements all the time. They might not all be mind mending, but if you fast forward to 5 or 7 years, I bet we will see something major.

They said similar when vacuum tubes were the peak of electronics. Then discrete transistors, then integrated circuits, then computer on a chip. I don't think we are there yet.

We chuckle today, but can't help wonder where Elon Musks new brain chip company will be 15 or 20 years down the road?!

Seems funny today, but I bet in 20 years this might be a 'thing'!

Nope, sooner or later the next tech wave will swoop on through.  As we become smarter or AI will likely be the one that comes up with the next idea.

Has any mainstream consumer product technology peaked, ever?  No.  Things just manage to evolve to create better products and further commerce.
