As soon as it was announced, it was announced online on the platform, so it was not so much, but it is no exaggeration to say that Sharp’s “AQUOS R6” was very exciting.
Lens configuration diagramThere was a lot of talk about Leica, the sensor being Type 1, there was only one camera, but what’s better about it? After the reading, I got a chance to touch on the real machine in the experience session, so I want to check it out too.
What’s amazing about the 1-inch sensor
The key to the AQUOS R6 camera is that the image sensor is too large. The key to a digital camera is an “image sensor” that receives “light” that enters through the lens and converts it into a signal, but it’s bigger and receives more light, so I think you can understand it when you consider the useful image quality. Actually, there are various factors involved, but roughly speaking, you might think “great justice”. Large sensor, strong sensitivity and wide dynamic range. This is why digital single lens cameras that use larger sensors have higher image quality. Therefore, the AQUOS R6 is equipped with the largest Type 1 sensor in smartphones. The AQUOS R5G was of the 1 / 2.55 type, and the AQUOS R6 was equipped with a 1-inch sensor that was approximately 5 times larger. It’s similar to the high quality compact digital cameras used in Sony’s RX100 series, Canon’s PowerShot G series and Panasonic’s TX series. It’s smaller than the Micro Four 3D, but bigger than smartphones and popular compact cameras. Recently, smartphones with sensor-sized size close to the Type 1 have been released, however, smartphones with the Type 1 sensor are not “in the current product”. As the size of the sensor increases, a lens with a diameter corresponding to that size is naturally required, and the lens becomes thicker. If it is thick, it will not fit the thickness of the smartphone. It’s not that easy. But when you look at the real thing, it’s not that tough. I don’t really care about this, it’s the thickness of a normal smartphone. This is the lens that makes it possible. It is a combination of seven lenses with intricate shapes. This ensures the image quality of the peripheral area. By the way, the image of the image sensor and lens are mounted on the sides of the body of the AQUOS R6. I often appreciate this sensor and lens on this body. In fact, in 2015 there was a smartphone with a 1-inch sensor. This is Panasonic’s “DMC-CM1”. As you can see from the model number of the digital camera “DMC”, it was installed as a digital camera with smartphone functionality, but it is a retractable lens. The lens pops slightly during shooting. The AQUOS R6 does not have such a system, and it is compatible with the weight of a smartphone. This is amazing. The lens is SUMMICRON of Laika. The focal length is F1.9, which is a 19mm equivalent wide angle in the 35mm format. Panasonic’s DMC-CM1 is equivalent to 28mm, which is F2.8. The AQUOS R6 is slim and the lens is stunning.
