Image Sensor Table - apertus° wiki

This is a collection of interesting image sensors that would be suitable for digital cinema applications and the AXIOM. CMOS technology is preferred over CCDs as CCDs require far more complex ADC and interpretation/support logic. Also CCDs typically do not have the performance (FPS) at the resolutions required today for digital cinema. A central requirement for apertus° considering an image sensor is that full datasheet of the sensor can be shared with the community without signing an NDA with the sensor manufacturer.
