Sony to acquire Toshiba’s CMOS image sensor business

by XB on 28th October 2015

in Imaging, News


Sony CMOSSony Corporation has today confirmed plans to acquire Toshiba’s 300mm wafer fabrication facilities (located at its Oita Operations), which manufactures CMOS image sensors and memory controllers. The move means Toshiba will exit from the CMOS image sensor business altogether.

Once the transfer of the facility is complete, Sony will operate the site as a production facility of Sony Semiconductor Corporation, with a main focus to manufacture CMOS image sensors. It is expected that all of Toshiba’s 1,100 staff including engineering and design will transfer to Sony.

Sony is a global leader when it comes to CMOS image sensors and its smartphone products are found in some of the most popular products on the market today. The market continues to grow and the acquisition will enable Sony to increase its production capabilities. Sony and Toshiba aim to complete the transfer by the end of 31 March 2016, subject to regulatory approvals.

    Sony plzzzzz fix the issue for camera

  • shhh

    Do they have better camera software engineers?

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Toshiba. Known for producing the image sensor for Nokia’s supercameraphones Pureview 808 and Lumia 1020. Now under Sony.

  • Rikimaru Azuma

    Excellent

  • Rajiv Bedi

    Old news

  • Shubham

    Well, A good one for Sony! but i think it should have been under corporation itself rather than a new subsidiary under Sony! makes doing business all the more complicated!

  • Vuyo Ncube

    4 billion dollar R&D investment into sensors + Toshiba Fab and camera engineering acquisition = curved sensors and/or fancier lens systems within 2 years with good enough yields (trickles down to smartphones within 3 years)!

  • Ana Heluši?

    Ouuu yeaaah

  • Mario Junior

    Do not forget the other Lumias. :)

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    i hope

  • shenoy

    Good for SONY. But not for Xperia users (us). Due to the camera software sony has for Xperia

  • iia3ezu

    If Sony would fire all those monkeys in Sweden (Sony Mobile Communications AB) and hire competent software developers from other countries, Xperia’s software would have been in a much better place by now.

    Do it, Kazuo-san.

  • Snorky112

    sony with z5 actually has the best camera in any smartphone

  • Roh_Mish

    Still the software is too shitty. That piece of art sensor can pull of so much more. But the firmware in Xperia Z series pull it back.

  • Roh_Mish

    Sony, now please concentrate on camera firmware. You supply your competition with inferior sensor yet they can pull off better results than your own phones.

  • J Cav the Great

    This is great! I wonder if this also includes patent transfer as well..most likely it does seeing that Toshiba would not have any use for them…

  • Akand

    I think this will help Sony keeping its Xperia business. By increasing net profit from sensor business they can reduce overall downfall of net profit of whole Sony Corp.

  • Asad Ahmed

    they never provide inferior sensors.

  • EQ

    Their sensors and lenses in their own Flagship phones are superior to the ones provided to the competition. Also they put in the hardware chip BIONZ for their flagship phones. Same ship used in their DSLR cameras.

  • Xyor

    who told you that Xperias have BIONZ that is the same as DSLRs? I doubt the ones on iPhones are inferior than the Z5 ones

  • Alex Norris

    We know this “the best cameras”.. Z2 and Z3 was the best only on Dxomark ranks. In real life, your Z5 losing theirs competirors, like its Z predecessors.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdVjR-7LrsQ

    yes xperia phones has bionz image processing :)

  • Timel

    Even I’m so glad about this news but I don’t think that Toshiba’s know how (about the camera sensor) will help Xperia phone from the same old crappy camera problem anyway

    I dont know what happened with my Sony but there’s nothing change even the sixth generation of Xperia flagship phone, most people must disappointed with Xperia camera again and again and again this time with Xperia Z5

  • EQ
  • EQ

    Iphone doesn’t have BIONZ! Only Sony products have it and they protect the algorithms heavily with DRM. Apple has to use CPU for their own algorithms.

  • Popescu Catalin

    Not the same in DSLR`s trust me, i know what i`m talking about.

  • Popescu Catalin

    This one is superior, z1-z3+ was inferior :) Much more inferior to sensors like S5 one, at least the S5 sensor has phase detection autofocus. Which not even one xperia phone had till Z5.

  • a.mubher

    http://cdn.gsmarena.com/imgroot/reviews/15/iphone-6s-galaxy-s6-xperia-z5/vs/camera/gsmarena_901.jpg more at gsmarena. They are on the same level on the most parts. Stop being delusional.

  • a.mubher
  • Svnjay

    I think you mean Kazuo-sama.

  • EQ

    Wrong. I have access to an S5 and it is way off. My Z1 takes way better photos in all light conditions. Especially in the dark. Not even the ‘Night mode’ on the S5 comes close to what the Z1 does quality wise and detail wise. The ‘Night mode’ on the S5 besides taking several seconds just to capture the image delivers something that resembles a matte painting of low quality. Utterly horrible for detail.

  • Alvin

    Ohh I’m so happy that I’ll call that boy, kazuo-kun

  • Battal

    Yea, but what if Nokia gives Sony’s big finger and use samsung or made their own sensor like samsung ?

  • Timel

    Agree

    Hopefully someday Sony will wake up and do the right things

  • Timel

    Can you give me a link Bro?

    Timel, DXO reviewed 6S, It also lost to Z5 in GSMA blind test. But you had big hope. What are you going to say now – hahaha ?

  • Alex Norris
  • Alex Norris

    !?

  • a.mubher
  • a.mubher

    Obviously, Not every part of the image is going to be perfect, That why GSMA compare the focus point. Z5 tends to have softness in the edges. In your sample Z5 is over exposed a little, probably too much ISO. They are all great cameras.

  • James Bond

    lol we all know how Nokia faked lumia 920 shots by using a DSLR and a Pro Video Camera for showing us OIS in Lumia 920

  • Alex Norris

    What you showed me, this called – oversharpened

  • a.mubher

    I wish they would turn down the sharpening effect a little bit in the upcoming camera software update in November. I still prefer it over the great loss of details and softness.

  • Alex Norris
  • a.mubher

    On the other hand, we have extreme loss of details and softness in the samples of the other phones. In the end It is about what you prefer, no camera is perfect. One thing for sure, Z5 camera offers excellent contrast, color reproduction and level of details. while also having some weaknesses. Now, let’s move on.

  • Alex Norris

    Oh )) Who said about honesty….

    Maybe Sony shows in their promo truth…? 5 Times Clear Zoom , yes )) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGqfFQdSbIw

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well if you think that the software and hardware is crappy on the Z5 idk what smartphone you want. Clearly not a phone from planet earth because the Z5 is on par or better then it’d competition. Over and out ;)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Monkeys? Do you honestly call us monkeys? I tell you one thing Sony would have gone bankrupt long ago if their office in Lund didn’t exist anymore. They have done an amazing job down there so stop spamming lies…

  • Alex Norris

    But professional photographer, not likes oversharpened photos, because it unnatural.
    I can say,Z5 little better than Z3, but why again in many camera comparisons new Z5, losing not new LG G4..?

  • James Bond

    Still they didnt provide fake or doctored camera samples like your stupid Nokia did.
    Still if u think nokia is best in camera tell them to make a camera that can beat RX100 or A7R.(or just tell them to make their own sensor)

  • James Bond

    Z5 won in GSMarena blind test u fool!

  • Emil Oskarsson

    But if you’re a professional photographer which most of us aren’t why would you buy a smartphone and only use that camera? I don’t get it ;) There’s nothing wrong with the software or hardware of Xperia z5

  • James Bond

    Stupid those are clouds not overblown sky

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Shut up would you?….

  • Emil Oskarsson

    S5 and z2 was equally good so?

  • James Bond

    Point!!
    Seriously if someone wants a camera only, why the fuck he/she is looking for mobile phones then?
    Just buy a rx100 and it will be far better than anu of your poorview cameras and it it is still cheaper!!!

  • Alex Norris

    This was the only case, but not like always on any SONY promo videos. All Xperia camera samples on their promos is FAKE, so better don’t talk about Lumia 920, ?? ? )

  • James Bond

    SO WHY YOU WERE BITCHING ABOUT NOISE IN OFFICIAL CAMERA SAMPLES WHEN YOU KNEW THEY WERE FAKE??

  • Alex Norris

    At least, about cameras i understand more than you…)

  • Alex Norris
  • James Bond

    its is you who is a stupid donkey!
    The pics were taken at different time of day!

  • Alex Norris

    Here’s truth about Xperia Z5 camera. ))

    Reviewer words: The Z5C camera has a few problems:
    – When you see the photo at a real/actual size (not a thumbnail), the details do not exist.
    – The photos at night, are just terrible (and I’m not even posting the worst photos I have):
    http://i.imgur.com/Vhz8ZaT.jpg
    http://i.imgur.com/tXDYoq2.jpg
    – Same with the indoor photos (the camera needs the flash almost everywhere without an EXCELLENT light conditions).
    – the minimum distance of the focus is huge, like 12mm ( I could focus from 5mm with the Nexus 5).
    – All the photos (that seems to have a FoV) have 50% space focused & 50% blurry. In other words, most photos are just focused in the middle. (In my previous phone I used to have details in almost all the picture, with “best” details, obviously, in the focused spot. But the difference wasn’t so big as in the Z5 Compact where only matters the “focused area” and all the other picture is blurry).

  • Alex Norris

    Stupid NOOB it’s taken in one day LOL! I said you’re 100% DONKEY ))) http://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_6s_galaxy_s6_xperia_z5-review-1329p2.php

  • James Bond

    LOL what about these then?
    Flash is off
    Pics were not taken by me!
    They were taken by a person much better than you in photography

  • James Bond

    so you should have noticed that in that blind test Z5 clearly wins!

  • Alex Norris

    Flash at night shooting, no one uses. )) That would be foolish. Flash used mainly indoors, or when you need to shoot the subject up close

  • Alex Norris

    All fans who voted, they knew that a wide angle photos has only Xperia Z5 )

    PS. Blind vote, does not necessarily mean that this camera the best

  • James Bond

    So earlier PV 808 was voted best in blind test
    THAT MEANS IT IS NOT BEST EITHER!

  • Alex Norris

    808 Pureview is great, but i seen one blind test on mobilereview, and 808 has taken 2 place, the first was SGS4 )))

    Almost, a have Z3 i had Z before, i„m a sony fan but let`s not forget that those cameras from z1 to z3+ were old. They are good, but not as good as the one from s6 for example, everybody knows that.

    I doubt, especially at night, i don`t think so.

  • Alex Norris
  • EQ

    What you think is irrelevant as opposed to the truth. I already compared them.

  • EQ

    That is a really bad LG G4 photo. Hazy look with bluriness, offset color temperature and scheme. Almost looks like blooming effect on it. Quite bad and lots of noise in the sky in plain day despite being ISO 50. Looks like what my LG optimus 2X potato from 2011 would produce. Better luck next time with G5!

  • Alex Norris

    That is a really bad LG G4 photo.??? xD

  • EQ

    Says in the exif “LG-H815”. It is bad especially considering how good the lighting conditions where and it shot in ISO 50 and 1/1362. You even lowered the EV -0,5 due to the intense sunlight. Good though that you yourself aknowledged it is bad. LG5 might bring you more luck sports. ;-)

  • Alex Norris
  • Emil Oskarsson

    If we are going to compare something with the s6 you have to compare it with the Z5 ;) not any older device or slightly upgraded phone like z3+ :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Maybe more about the terms, but not when it comes to mobile cameras :)

  • EQ

    Photo has been recompressed with jpeg 70-75% compression as the 23MP image should be around 12MB instead of 4MB. The ISO is 800 and the photo is taken at sunset time in overcast lighting conditions aswell as taken with shaky hands so shutter speed is fast to counter shakyness and results in less detail and more bluriness. The G4 photo was ISO 50 at daytime with strong sunlight and not recompressed. Good try but you are busted big time!

    Anyone who wants to see Z5 photos in all light conditions and both SA 8MP mode and 23MP mode take a look here. This is all you need to see for judging the camera.

    Aint my album but the photos there makes the LG G4 photos look like potato material. You can spend all day trying to find the worst photos of the Z5. I’ll bet if you drink some alcohol and go out on the night to snap a photo you can upload it later ;-)

    Btw here is a SA 8MP photo from my Xperia Z1. ISO 400, 1/16 shutterspeed (was powerwalking so I was a bit shaky and stabilisation kicked in), sunset time with light overcast in forest area.

    The comparison is not by me. Here: http://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_6s_galaxy_s6_xperia_z5-review-1330p8.php

    A tie between the two for daylight. And Z5 won in the blind voting.

  • a.mubher

    Also, when it has better details it is oversharp. When it has less details it is “the details don’t exist”. Typical cycle xD
    There are other factor like contrast and colors reproduction which you are ignoring. As I said it won the blind voting by most people. S6 won in low light

  • EQ
  • ZeRo+

    And where Z5 details better, where) On trees, it simply oversharpened, but you think that it means details.
    People also voted for the second pair – house images .. But only idiots would vote for sample, where the sky is lost, while at the SGS6 and 6S, sky is not overexposed. So this shows us that people don`t understand photography nuances.

  • a.mubher

    The cropped part is the focus center, which is made by GSMA. Not a random part of the picture to fit an agenda. Like the one above.. Which is not even identical… The full comparison is at the link I provided above. Peace be upon you.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Pfft you just showed me that I’m better then you when you claimed that the camera of the Xperia z5 was crappy, enough said ;)

  • Asad Ahmed

    BIONZ chip is their own hardware but other companies are using some other techniques and secondly if they are design something for their own handsets so it doesn’t mean that they are providing some inferior products to other companies, Apple is one of the most strict company when it comes to product quality and you know that Apple is also the client of Sony Image sensor business.

  • Alex Norris

    Yes, and i was wright. It`s crappy! http://mobiltelefon.ru/post_1446039370.html

  • Timel

    Not true at all

    G4 and Note 5 camera software are much better the Z5 camera software

  • Timel

    Wow Great! Finally Z5 wins the camera blind test

    So weird because before this, I found most of reviews proved that Z5 camera is the worst when compare with iPhone 6, S6, Note 5 and G4 cameras.

  • Timel

    picture from Note 5 is clearly better

  • Timel

    Stop dancing around the subject please!

  • ZeRo+

    Of course better. It’s not surprise

  • EQ

    Other companies either use other chips or rely on the built in image processing component of the SoC alt CPU cores to process which mostly are inferior to a separate dedicated DSP chip like for example BIONZ. Also Apple aint as high quality as you think. I have worked repairing mobile phones and Iphones have lots of cheap components ranging from switches, charging adapters, charging circuitry and more. Also they buy according to their mantra of ‘cheap price vs quality’ and so their camera modules in their phones aint Sonys high-end camera modules but from the medium-end scale. Same with their speakers, fairly good mono speakers but high-end is stereo speakers with minimal crosstalk. LCD is from LG, medium to high-end versions but not the best LG has to offer. An Iphone 6s costs roughly 250 dollars to build so dont confuse the retail price for being any indicator of quality.

    Now this only proves your ignorance and bias about xperia camera use.
    And that reviewers ignorance.

    Any xperia user or any objective reviewer knows using the shutter button, especially in low light, produces worse results than using the software button.
    Why not use the software shutter button for the sake of same condition test?
    Because that reviewer of yours knows hard shutter button produces worse results, so he deliberatly uses it, with one hand for more shake, and without even using the two step tech ( autofocus).

    The reviewer I linked knows how to make best results from an xperia phone, and the results are obvious.

    Your links test is a deliberate fail for guilable folks.
    Fortunately there are a few objective reviewers out there that show real results.

    Because he`s honest reviewer, he is not lier Dxomark! He knows what can Z series camera with manual settings, and he also knows that Lg G4 have more opportunities, Sony still does not have a shutter speed and tap exposure, which has all A brand smartphones So, in the future i don`t need listed of xperia fans abou manual settings ok…

    if you just base your judgement by the cropped images, it is very clear that the Xperia is at a disadvantage. It is “zoomed in” more than that image on the left. You can correct this by maybe stepping a little bit forward next time (for the Xperia) when doing a comparison, or “zoom them in” at the same percentage. This is something that most reviewers (and so-called experts that leave comments here) are ignoring.

    I don’t even know why news like this ends up in mobile phone websites. Sony designs and manufactures sensors for a bunch of applications – not just for phones. Their CMOS sensors appears in professional media, industrial and scientific market, phones, consumer cameras (point and shoot, DSLR, CSC).
