Sony's teasing us with some simulated images, claiming that its upcoming EXMOR image sensor can snag a whole lot more light than any other. Sony explains that its new CMOS sensor technology is able to choose between the most relevant photons, ending up with a much better low-light image.
Expect to see the new sensors in the Sony CyberShot TX1 ($400) and WX1 ($350) still cameras when they ship next month. Those prices are a lot higher than most other comparably equipped point-and-shoots. But hey, if it can "cull ambient photons" as well as this faked and highly suspect shot implies, it might just be worth the extra dough. This we gotta see.
