Canon organic sensor patent application
Through the years, I have gotten hints in various patent applications that I have read that canon was looking, however, not too seriously at organic sensors.
They certainly don't seem to be as far advance as some of the panasonic and fuji patents that have circulated the internet over the last 2-3 years.
This patent application deals with the organic compounds used in such an organic sensor, and is one of the few that I've seen that specifically mention use in a digital stills camera.
Organic sensors should have the ability to increase dynamic range and light sensitivity but it's unknown if Canon will run into the same problems that are rumored to persist with the Fuji and Panasonic implementations; which is heat and power usage.
It'll be interesting to watch over the next year or so to see if there's more traction in this area of research from Canon.
