Rumor Mill – New Sony “Quincunx” 35mm sensor

Once again the Rumor Mill is spinning: New 35mm sensor for Sony F35

Sony is making a new CCD sensor for the F35 form factor, basically they’ve turned the Bayer pattern on a 45 degree angle (“Quincunx” is the fancy word for that), and reduced the size of the photosites so they’ll get 17.7 million of them instead of 8.5 million. This should be a good thing for reducing aliasing, except on chain link fences
