  • However, generally a dark current is generated by the image sensor, especially since the time of or during long exposure sensitivity is sometimes noise due to dark current are noticeable, various noise reduction process is performed. On the other hand, the imaging surface imaging element is curved in the imaging element curved dark current generated by the imaging device is known to be reduced by the tensile stress at the time of the.
  • Curving the imaging surface drive means
  • Driving means magnetic force
  • Curvature of dark current noise is reduced
  • Curvature priority to the correction of the curvature of field aberration
