CMOS Sensor Camera

CMOS Sensor Camera

The biggest problem with night-vision photography and video is that you really only have two choices – a super-sensitive DSLR that makes the images too noisy, or cameras that pull from a different light spectrum making the images the wrong colors. Now, Canon is developing a CMOS sensor feature that makes night look like day.

This can come in handy for taking pictures of the stars without using long exposures or videos of the same. It can see the full sky, even capturing shooting stars. By using Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor sensors, they are able to turn light into electrical signals that can then be translated into realistic images and videos.

It’s still in early stages of development but as the video below shows, it’s a very promising technology.
