This model leverages Sony's Pregius global shutter CMOS technology designed to fulfill the promise of global shutter CMOS: crisp, clear, distortion-free images at high speeds.  

The IMX253 sensor features a smaller and very popular pixel size of 3.45 µm; the smaller pixel size is balanced with lower Temporal Dark Noise to maintain Pregius’ outstanding imaging performance.
