As I understand, a bigger photosite (on the sensor) enables a bigger dynamic range and also better high ISO performance. Is there a reason not to make the photosite deeper?
I know that sensors are made from several (million) photosites. But what is in the photosites? What chemicals, if any? How are they made? What actually detects the light? I am looking for both CMOS ...
How do digital sensors that capture one color at each photosite compare to sensors that capture many colors?
There are different type of digital camera sensors, those sensors that can capture only one color at each photosite and those who can capture more than one color at each photosite. Which one is ...
