    I bought the Nikon D7000 solely for its incredible performance in low light (to photograph the inside of jets without flash). It's pretty damn good (enough to get paid for the shots), but it still lacks the clarity I'd like.

    This new sensor seems promising. Hopefully it'll be available as a replacement for my current sensor instead of having a buy a whole 'nother camera.

    How does this impact our ISO level?

    Set it to 100 and leave it there.

    Also, it means you can set a higher f-stop for better depth of field, and a higher shutter speed...in theory, anyway.

    It remains to be seen if this sensor will really deliver what is promised in actual use, and whether it can be mass produced economically as its developer claims. I wouldn't expect to see it on the market for years yet.

    I have a feeling this technology will get to the point where we have one more thing evading our privacy. Just think.....soon you will have infrared cameras in everyone's cell phones. Your photo will be taken in the dark without your knowledge or consent.

    I had a consumer class video camera a few years ago that had "night vision" setting on it just like you see on those military videos where everything is greenish. Was a neat little feature, though I really didn't use it at all.
