Is the Future of the Image Sensor Curved? | PDNPulse

A curved sensor bestows several potential benefits for cameras and particularly lenses. Many of the optical elements used by lens manufacturers are in place to correct optical distortions and bend light so that it can land on a flat sensor. With a curved sensor, you should be able to ditch the lens elements responsible for flattening an image and also the elements used to correct distortions introduced by the flattening elements. The result is not simply lighter and smaller lenses, but higher quality ones at that.
