Sony's new smartphone camera sensor shoots video at 1000 frames per second

Sony is showing off its latest smartphone camera sensor which it says can shoot 1080p slow-motion video at a blistering 1,000 frames per second.

The new 3-layer CMOS sensor β€” an industry first β€” can capture slow motion video about eight times faster than its competition with minimal focal pane distortion, according to Sony.

The sensor can also take 19.3MP images in 1/120th of a second, which Sony says is four times faster than other chip.

Given that both Apple and Google use Sony sensors in their cameras, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to capture even more incredible slow-motion video on your phone in the next couple years.

And hopefully 32GB phones will be a thing of the past by then as well, as 1,000fps full HD video would eat up your storage space in an instant.
