Low Light Photography with new Kodak technology

OK, this not a 3D item but I thought it would be of interest to all the 'shooters' in our audience. Chris McNiffe of Kodak's image sensor division says that Kodak has developed a "color-filter technology that at least doubles the sensitivity to light of the image sensor in every digital camera. . .[this will] "enable a 2x-4x improvement in light sensitivity."

This filter would replace an industry standard filter designed by Kodak scientist Bryce Bayer in 1976. Samples of the new filter should be made available to camera manufacturers early next year.

It is expected that Point & Shoot cameras will be the first to have this new technology, followed by camera phones.
