Scitex CMOS sensor delivers 6.6 megapixels  
Monday, May 22, 2000 | by
In case you haven't had your fill of CMOS news, John Mabanglo points out that Scitex in January announced a 6.6 megapixel CMOS sensor that has the same surface area as a frame of 35mm film. Dubbed the Leaf C-Most sensor, a Scitex press release indicates that it:

...can be positioned in the focal plane of a standard 35mm camera, allowing full-size, high resolution images to be captured using standard 35mm lenses. The Leaf C-MOST sensor provides exceptional image quality when compared to other CMOS sensors due to the unique active pixel design, and its high sensitivity and low noise levels are comparable to CCD technology currently available.

It's not clear when this sensor might begin to appear in shipping products, or whether they would be at all suitable for photojournalism and other fast-moving types of photography.
