Apple aiming at killing DSLR cameras
LAHORE (Web Desk) – World’s top technology company Apple has signed deal to purchase LinX in order to challenge the DSLR cameras in the market.

iPhones are known for cameras. In fact, the camera on iPhone6 and 6 Plus is considered one of the best compared to any other existing smartphones – except for camera sensors on Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Last week, Apple finalised a deal to purchase LinX - a company known for manufacturing advanced sensors for camera - creating speculation that Apple could be planning a DSLR killer for its future iPhones.

The news was first reported by Wall Street Journal, which said Apple has acquired LinX Computational Imaging Ltd for about $20 million.

The technology adopted by LinX, according to its website, combines innovative image processing, advanced sensor and optics technology setting enabling low-light performance, HDR, refocusing, colour fidelity, shutter lag and many other features.

“LinX cameras are significantly smaller than any camera on the market today, leading the way to DSLR performance in slim handsets,” it said.
