Fujifilm and Panasonic push the boundaries of digital imaging

Here at Panasonic we already enjoy an enviable reputation when it comes to digital camera imaging technology, and our latest venture (a joint development with Fujifilm) is setting a new benchmark in the field; offering the industry’s highest* dynamic range and sensitivity for vivid and texture-rich images.


The collaboration of Fujifilm and Panasonic has led to the development of an organic CMOS image sensor technology that uses an organic photoelectric conversion layer with a photoelectric conversion property at the light receiving section of an image sensor to achieve performance beyond that of conventional image sensors*.

By applying this exciting new technology to the image sensors of digital cameras and other imaging devices, we are able to expand its dynamic range* and enhance sensitivity* further to prevent highlight clipping in bright scenes and capture a dark subject with vivid colours and rich textures.

The applications for this technology extend to a wide range of products including security cameras, in-vehicle cameras, mobile devices and digital cameras.

*1 Performance of the light receiving section of image sensors, as of June 11, 2013 according to Panasonic data.
*2 Estimation from Panasonic image sensors.
*3 Range of light that can be recorded (ratio between the brightest and darkest areas recorded)
*4 The sensitivity of image sensors refers to the conversion ratio of light into electric signals. The greater the sensitivity is, the clearer you can capture low-light scenes
