Samsung Electronics has launched a new image sensor that is designed for use in the primary camera of high-end smartphones. Like other sensors from the the ISOCELL family, the ISOCELL GN1 comes with the company's pixel isolation technology that creates a barrier around each pixel in order to reduce color cross-talk.At 50MP the sensor´s native resolution is fairly moderate when compared to the 108
To get a sense of how “normal” the Sun may be, astronomers have compared the Sun to hundreds of similar stars.

A promising new cancer drug will soon enter phase 2 clinical trials, after finding success in animal models and preliminary human studies. Known as AMG 510, the drug targets a gene mutation that’s one of the most common causes of cancer.
Having shot with the Phase One XF camera system alongside both IQ3 and IQ4 digital backs, a common issue I had with the system is its immense size and weight. Designed (and excellent) for studio applications, the XF camera is simply not a great fit for the landscape photography I enjoy doing.
