Samsung Electronics Anounces High Resolution Sensors for SmartPhone Cameras

Share

Samsung Electronics has launched two new high-resolution image sensors that are destined for multi-camera arrays in smartphones.

The two “Isocell” sensors – a 48-megapixel and a 32-megapixel unit both feature small size 0.8 micron pixels and are crucially compact to fit the slim bodies demanded of smartphone makers.

Called GM1 and GD1 respectively, the two new sensors feature Samsung’s Isocell Plus technology which adopts an innovative pixel structure that improves both light sensitivity and color fidelity, and what Samsung are calling Tetracell technology where the output from four pixels is combined into one (oversampled) for reduced noise.

The sensors also support the gyro-based electronic image stabilization (EIS) tech used in video capture.

It’s believed that the new sensors which start mass production in November will feature in the Samsung Galaxy S10 device, slated for release next year.

Fully Featured Photoshop CC coming to the iPad

Share

At Adobe MAX 2018 in Los Angeles, Adobe previewed Photoshop CC on iPad, however, we were granted a preview in early October, along with other members of the press. Adobe were keen to stress this is not a version, it has all the signature features including layers with no practical limit. We were shown an example with 200 layers.

It is, of course, no real secret that Adobe has been working on a fully featured version of Photoshop for a while, a scaled back version for mobile devices has been available for sometime. However, while Photoshop CC on iPad shares the same underlying code as the desktop version, the interface has been reworked for mobile devices. It has a more streamlined layout and larger buttons and sliders for use with either a finger or stylus, though of course, with many of same tools as the desktop version it looks familiar.
