New 8K MFT sensor from Sony - But for whom?

New 8K MFT sensor from Sony - But for whom?

[11:26 thu,4.February 2021   by ]    

4/3 Rumors now wants to know for sure that Sony wants to and will soon make an 8K MFT sensor available for its customers. This is interesting in that so far 8K on a sensor area with a width of about 18mm has been dismissed as nonsensical by many observers.

The individual sensels are simply extremely small at about 2.3 µm at 8K resolution. Even in photo, the two largest MFT manufacturers, Panasonic and Olympus, have never gone beyond 20 megapixels to date (which is equivalent to about 5K resolution). And if we have understood the manufacturers' subtext correctly in the past, most MFT lenses are also only designed up to 20 MPixels or 5K resolution. In front of an 8K sensor, therefore, most MFT lenses available today are unlikely to max out the offered resolution at all. At most, a natural moire protection due to the "excess resolution" could be put forward as an advantage of the many sensors.

So who could use this sensor in the future? The first thought is of course Panasonic, whose long awaited GH6 would perhaps look good with an 8K sticker for marketing reasons. But Blackmagic could also be interested here. After all, their big URSA Mini Pro 12K also offers a similarly insane pixel density. And if 12K on 24mm works for Blackmagic, then 8K in MFT should also be possible. However, the Sony sensor should not have the special BRAW Mosaic pattern.


But no matter who ultimately builds this MFT sensor, the biggest question mark remains dynamic range. Without tricks like BSI, dual-gain or WhitePixel, an 8K sensor will definitely have a hard time in this sensor class. On the other hand, most manufacturers aren't crazy and will think of something specific when using 8K on MFT. In any case, we are extremely curious to see in which models this 8K sensor from Sony will ultimately manifest itself.
