Sony Unveils New 48MP Image Sensor For Smartphones

Our smartphone cameras have come a very, very long way since cameras were introduced to phones in general. Not only do smartphone cameras these days feature faster autofocus, they also come with image stabilization, the ability to capture videos in 4K, and more. Now it looks like Sony will be kicking things up a notch.

The company has recently unveiled a brand new image sensor for smartphones which would effectively give smartphones a 48MP sensor. According to Sony, they boast that the new high megapixel count means that smartphone cameras now have the potential to rival high-end SLR cameras, although we should point out that there's more to a good photo than just a high megapixel count.

Fujifilm X-t3 Could Lack Eature In-body Image Stabilization

Fujifilm X-T3  Could Lack eature In-Body Image Stabilization

Usually we find image stabilization features inside of lenses themselves, but having it built into the camera body means that all lenses you put on it will benefit from it, which is obviously a huge advantage. Unfortunately for those hoping to see that in the Fujifilm X-T3, you guys will be disappointed.

This is according to a report from Fuji Rumors who claims that according to their sources, the X-T3 will not come with in-body image stabilization (IBIS). Should we be surprised? In a way not really, especially since the X-T1 and X-T2 both do not have the feature. However there was a glimmer of hope because you might have heard that Fujifilm is working on a new camera called the X-H1 which is rumored to feature IBIS, which in turn has spurred speculation that maybe the company could bring it to the X-T3.

Panasonic G9 Offers Pro-level Features, 20 Fps Bursts, Huge Evf And Class-leading Image Stabilization

Panasonic G9Panasonic's new Lumix DC-G9 is the company's first mirrorless camera aimed specifically at professional stills photographers. Geared for high-speed capture at up to 20fps, the G9 offers the same 20MP Four Thirds sensor as the video-centric GH5, but with tweaked image processing for better JPEG image quality. If 20 Megapixels isn't enough for you, the G9 is able to shift its sensor (more on that below) eight times to create an 80MP Raw image with ultra-high resolution.

The G9's image stabilization is as good as you'll find on any interchangeable lens cameras, capable of reducing shake by up to 6.5 stops. Panasonic claims that this system still offers that level of stabilization at wider focal lengths when using non-stabilized lenses, and maintains it at longer focal lengths with those with built-in IS, where it can use 'Dual I.S. 2.'
