Panasonic has been leading the development of a next-generation organic CMOS image sensor. The new generation of non-back-illuminated sensors is expected to be a huge breakthrough once it becomes commercially available - which according to Panasonic could be much sooner than its competitors.  

This new sensor is said to have a drastically improved low-light performance in comparison with the widely-used Sony CMOS sensor developed back in 2009. This is thanks to features such as a wide dynamic range with high sensitivity for textures.
