The article focuses on the importance of electronic camera sensors. It states that the big advantage of electronic sensors is that they don't require out-of-camera processing to access the latent image. Accordingly, in electronic sensors, the chemistry is no less complicated and the physical arrangement of the cells in an array sensor can greatly affect the way the visible light is converted.
