I tried to look up but I couldn't find answer to my question... Has anyone heard of LBCAST sensor, the sensor attached to D2H? Why has it not being used on the future cameras? I've heard it was a better sensor than CCD or CMOS. I heard that it was fast as CMOS sensor and less noise maker like CCD. I just got curious.
Question about Nikon-created sensor(4 posts) (3 voices)
The LBCAST proved to be inferior to current CMOS technology, which is why it has not been used in newer cameras.
Hmm.. I see. So does that mean there's no more development for LBCAST? Or there'll be no purely Nikon-made sensor? I know Nikon uses modified Sony-made sensors but just curious if Nikon's up to something like that.
LBCAST and CMOS sensors are related. So the CMOS in the D3 series could actually be LBCAST in disguise. Since LBCAST kind of got a bad reputation they might of just called the D3/S and D700 sensor a CMOS on purpose. Nikon has publicly said it has never given up on the LBCAST sensor technology.
The CMOS in the D3/S and D700 are purely a Nikon designed and are not made by Sony.
