“SILINA does not reinvent the wheel of sensor design and manufacturing”, states SILINA’S CTO Wilfred Jahn, “but is developing technological solutions to curve existing (flat) imaging sensors.” A PhD holder in Electro-optical System Design, Wilfred forms one half of SILINA’s co-founding team with CEO Michael Bailly. Seeing a potential increase in demand among technological sectors, the duo formed SILINA in 2020 with a vision to reform the existing sensor ‘curving process’.

Curved Sensors Could Really Shake Up the Faltering Camera Industry

We’re streaming daily on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, and Spotify!

Let’s face it; after a good few years of Sony innovating in the camera space, things have suddenly come to a screeching halt. In the last two years, there have not been any real major improvements to modern Mirrorless cameras. Sure, sensors pack more megapixels, autofocus systems are a bit faster, and EVF technology and video technology have improved too. However, the updates to these systems have all been incremental. None of them really stand out as being innovative. Now, though, news has emerged about curved sensors going into mass production. What could this mean for the camera industry, and will we see them anytime soon? Let’s talk about this.
