Rambus has unveiled a new “binary pixel technology” that promises to “dramatically improve” the quality of photos taken with mobile devices, in terms of dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio. “Today’s compact mainstream sensors are only able to capture a fraction of what the human eye can see,” said Dr. Martin Scott, chief technology officer at Rambus. “Our breakthrough binary pixel technology enables a tremendous performance improvement for compact imagers capable of ultra high-quality photos and videos from mobile devices.”
In our review of the Pentax K-5 II, we briefly touched on the camera’s sister model, the K-5 IIs. The IIs is identical to the K-5 II except that its anti-aliasing filter has been removed. In practice, this should increase sharpness, with the possible side-effect of aliasing, moiré, and other image artifacts. We’ve seen this elsewhere recently, most notably with the Nikon D800 and D800E siblings. But the K-5 II is the first APS-C DSLR available in filtered and unfiltered variants.
In the lab, we found that the filterless K-5 IIs produced an 8% increase in sharpness. We were eager to see how our findings held up in the real world—and if it would spawn any image-quality side effects. So we loaded up the two cameras with some high-quality glass, packed a tripod, and went for a stroll.
