What about Image Quality?

We will be diving deeper on each of the Dual Aperture camera's unique features, but first, let's take a look at picture quality.

The Dual Aperture camera's unique features are made possible because its sensor doesn't use the traditional Bayer sensor model. Instead of a RGBG filter, the Dual Aperture sensor uses a modified filter that replaces the second green sub-pixel with an infra-red sub-pixel.

So what does this mean for picture quality? The absence of a second green sub-pixel and the possibility of infrared leakage onto the other sub-pixels creates the potential for serious image quality problems; However, our engineers at Dual Aperture have successfully designed a solution that enables image quality on-par with most modern cameras AND allows for all the unique features that make Dual Aperture cameras so special.

Introducing Dual Aperture

For the last decade, consumer camera technologies were engaged in an arms race for more megapixels.

We're here to bring a revolution to the arms race.

Over the next few months, we will be unveiling several new features through a series of blog posts. Today, we are proud to introduce our revolutionary Dual Aperture technology, starting with our take on gesture tracking in the video below. Enjoy!
