Sony is the world’s leading manufacturer of sensors, with a market share of 45% in 2016. Second place is held by Samsung with 15%, Canon has a 5% market share and then everyone else. So it won’t be surprising to hear that Sony sensors can be found in nearly all manufacturers’ cameras, mobile phones, action cameras, and even drones. Sony victory began with the Exmor series. It was a revolution in the market for CMOS sensors because until then, CMOS was very “noisy”, which prevented it from being actively used in digital cameras.
