Samsung 50MP ISOCELL GN2 sensor promises superior autofocus, HDR

Samsung is known for its imaging technology and the 50MP GN1 image sensor released last year is the perfect example of the technological advancements that the South Korean electronics giant is making to improve overall resulting photo shooting since smart phones. Now Samsung has announced the ISOCELL GN2 image sensor which has a large 1.4μm pixel size and features other add-ons such as Dual Pixel Pro, Smart ISO Pro, as well as tiered HDR images.

This is Samsung’s first smartphone camera technology to feature Dual Pixel Pro. It employs one hundred million phase detection photodiodes to achieve ultra-fast autofocus speeds, with all-directional focus dividing the pixels vertically and vertically. horizontally.

Comparing the Dual Pixel with PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus) technology, it is way ahead, as there is no loss of quality when the autofocus mode is working. All pixels are accounted for for RGB and phase detection light, so they have minimal data loss and are well ahead of PDAF.

In a way, Dual Pixel Pro works like human eyes to draw light from a pair of them to create a unique and clearer image with the ability to focus on moving objects with greater precision. Additionally, extended range tiered HDR support results in better details and low power consumption (a reduction of around 24 percent) compared to normal HDR mode.

the 1 / 1.12 ” ISOCELL GN2 Sensor lets you create large 2.8 micron pixels using pixel pool technology, combining four pixels into one. This is useful in low-light photography, and the 100MP mode employs the re-mosaic algorithm to recreate three separate layers of 50MP frames in green, red, and blue.

Not only are these impressive features, but the sensor also brings Smart ISO Pro to the fore that utilizes In-Scene Dual Conversion Gain (iDCG) that is capable of creating high dynamic range images “with fewer motion artifacts.” For videos, the GN2 sensor can record 1080p video at 480 fps and 4K video at 120 fps.
