As many of you are possibly aware Kodak over the years have produced some great and class leading CCD sensors for digital cameras. Many of these are used in Medium Format Cameras and in Leica M Digital cameras.
With the troubles that Kodak have been having, they sold off the sensor division and its now know as Truesense.
They have recently made some interesting announcements, first they are going to produce some m4/3 sensors and a monochrome only sensor like that in the Leica Monochrom. The bigger surprise is that these are going to be CMOS based sensors, so we will also get video and live view.
I doubt any of the main stream camera manufactures will pick up the monochrome version, its mainly going to be used for scientific uses in specialised areas, but maybe one of the small players or a new upstart may produce something with this for the enthusiast photographer.
