Better Low light camera technology

A Kodak technician holds up image sensors embedded on a silicon wafer. The technology enables people to take better pictures in poor light.

Eastman Kodak said it has developed a colour-filter technology
that at least doubles the sensitivity to light of the image sensor
in every digital camera, enabling shutterbugs to take better
pictures in poor light.

"Low light can mean trying to get a good image indoors of your
kid blowing out the birthday candles. It can mean you want to take
a photograph on a street corner in Paris at midnight," said Chris
McNiffe, general manager of the photography company's image sensor
business.

"We're talking about a two-to-four-times improvement in (light)
sensitivity."
