JoJu first signaled that a photographer had been shooting with a new beta Nikon where the low light performance was several stops better than conventional sensors.
A little while later I came across an article stating that Nikon had been working with a new Sony sensor for their upcoming DSLR replacement that instead of using a conventional RGB sensor, they use a RGBW sensor where the W represented "white". An extra white pixel is added into the mix and just deals with the black/white component of the image and somehow enables noise levels to be reduced by up to 2 stops.
and now here the angry photographer (TAP) claims that the announcement is to coincide with Nikon's 100 year anniversary celebrations and may be fairly soon.....
Watch with caution TAP is not everybody's cup of tea!
If it's true that the noise improvement could be up to 2 stops then that will put Nikon back in front in terms of IQ........
.............. 2 stops is major!
