The L10 uses a high-image-quality 10.1-megapixel 4/3-type Live MOS Sensor, which delivers the same high image quality as a CCD sensor with the low power consumption of a CMOS sensor. This advanced sensor draws on MOS signal amplification technology but uses a simpler structure. It's molded as a single unit onto a flexible circuit board, reducing both the number of signal exchanges and the contact resistance from wiring. An outstanding process technology with low-voltage activation reduces heat and noise while improving the image quality of the Live View function.
By incorporating the 2.2μm pixel technology, Panasonic succeed in the mass production of a miniaturized circuit that sustains the same light receiving area as the sensor of 7.5-megapixel. In addition, the efficiency of light reception is raised at the same time. The result is to keep the sensitivity as high as, or even higher than that of 7.5-megapixel despite the decreased pixel area.
2.When the camera power is turned on, the filter vibrates to shake off dirt and dust.
3.The dirt and dust adheres to the absorption part to prevent it
from appearing in the sensor image.
