Sony To Invest Nearly $1B Into HDR CMOS Chip Fab

Sony is going to invest into Stacked CMOS imaging fabrication. Stacked CMOS allows for on chip HDR imaging with vertical pixels. While Sony is aiming for consumer products there can be no doubt that this will also make it  into pro products. If this technology adds another 2-3 stops of dynamic range to electronic imaging film's last hold out is gone. If they can add 4-5 stops of range film has been exceeded and getting to the point of what our own eyes can do. Interesting times !
