Sony’s new IMX318 camera sensor is out with a 22.5MP resolution and fast focus


Sony has released the new Exmor RS IMX318 camera sensor with some impressive specs including stabilisation. Keep reading for more info.

The Exmor RS IMX318 wil start appearing on phone towards the end of this year. As is the norm with new Exmor series sensors, the Exmor RS IMX318 too will be seen first only on an Xperia phone… probably one that’s yet to be announced.

The Exmor RS IMX318 is a type 1/2.6-inch stacked CMOS sensor, which according to Sony is more compact than previous generation sensors.

Features of the sensor include a resolution of 22.5 mega-pixels, and a super fast focus speed of 0.03 seconds (which is something some might find hard to believe for now). Demo video below:

Video recording options include 4K recording at 30fps, 1080p and 720p at 120fps and 240fps respectively. Another interesting feature this sensor boasts is 3-axis stabilisation, a demo of which you can find below.

It’s almost as if you’re using a gimbal… but I hope phone makers add the option of turning it off when needed.
