Shutterbugs in the Dark

News from PC Magazine: Shutterbugs in the Dark
At CES, Korean Company Planet82 demonstrated its eye-popping SMPD (Single Module Photo Detector) image sensor. The sensor's calling card is that it lets cameras take full-color photos or video in the dark—without a flash.

The SMPD is more sensitive to light than other image sensors, making it possible to take clear images even when the light level is less than 0.1 lux. One lux is equivalent to the brightness of a single candle 1 meter away in a dark room.
