Samsung 108MP ISOCELL HM3 camera sensor has been launched with improvements in clarity, dynamic range, and autofocus performance. The South Korean tech company also introduced a new technology called Super PD Plus which enhanced autofocus stability and Smart ISO Pro for better noise reduction.
Samsung 108MP ISOCELL HM3 camera sensor features
Samsung finally revealed a new 108-megapixel smartphone camera sensor which they called ISOCELL HM3. It is the third generation of Samsung’s ISOCELL HM series. As per the report, ISOCELL HM3 features a 1/1.33-inch sensor that comprises 0.8μm pixels and performs 9-in-1 Nonacell pixel-binning technolgy to deliver pictures of 12-Megapixel size. The new camera sensor adopts Smart ISO Pro which is a high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging technology that uses an intra-scene dual conversion gain (iDCG) solution.
The ISO Pro technology captures a frame in both high and low ISO and then combines them into a single image in 12-bit color depth and with reduced noise. Also, The HM3 sensor has a low-noise mode that improves the light sensitivity by 50-percent to capture brighter and clearer results in low-light environments than its predecessor.
Additionally, The company has unveiled a new technology which they called Super PD Plus that enhances autofocus stability. The company said, “Super PD Plus adds AF-optimized micro-lenses over the phase-detection focusing agents, increasing measurement accuracy of the agents by 50-percent.” The new technology make sure that moving subjects are always in sharp focus, and provide optimum results in low-light photography as well. The company claims that design of the new sensor have also been optimized to reduce energy consumption under preview mode by 6.5-percent.
