Live MOS


Live MOS

The Live MOS sensor is a brand name of Image sensor used by Leica, Panasonic and Olympus in their Four Thirds System DSLR manufactured since 2006. (Olympus E-330, Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 and Leica Digilux 3).

It is possibly researched and developed by Panasonic. It claimed that it can achieve the same quality as CCD while keeping energy consumption down to CMOS levels.

Due to low energy consumption, it became possible to add the Live View function to all the Four Thirds Cameras since 2006 (except the Olympus E-400).

Also, In order to reduce the noise problem found in the first generation of Four Thirds DSLR cameras, (Olympus E-1, E-300, E-400 and E-500) which used FFT CCD sensors [Specifications of Olympus E-400 did not mentioned the type of CCD is FFT or not.] (due to smaller sensor size compared to the APS-C size) [See Four_Thirds_System#Disadvantages] , the Live MOS chip includes completely new noise-reduction technology.
