Also Nikon seems to be working on a curved image sensor

We saw this before from Sony and now there is a new patent from Nikon that seems to describe the very same thing: A curved image sensor! The advantages of such a sensor would be:

  • You can design more compact lenses
  • The Sony patent said there is a 1 stop advantage in making such lens designs
  • No artifacts or image quality deterioration on corners

My guess is that if that patent will ever be implemented ina real products this will happen on a fixed lens camera.
