Digital Photography Takes Off
Environmental tolerance: Filter misalignment may result in fringes on edge details. Movement of camera or subject is to be avoided, except when working in black-and-white.
• Multi-shot, single matrix, sub-element shift: An alternative to the one shot, triple matrix. A single array is shifted multiple times, the full length of a pixel, to fill in gaps in RGB information without the need of interpolation.
Applications: Camera using this technology can operate in two modes: one-shot matrix with software interpolation (action shots), or multi-shot mode for full-resolution still shots.
• Multi-shot, single matrix, whole-element shift: Takes numerous readings and shifts either the array or the light beam position after each reading. This masks to a smaller size the light sensitive area of each element.
