Let’s face it there are Bloggers out there who are long term sufferers of the Dunning-Kruger Effect, too asinine, too stupid to realise that they are punching above their weight.

KAC-12040 Image Sensor

It still takes two to pull off the full affects of the Dunning-Kruger Effect (DKE) though. Doltish Bloggers and their readers that are too lazy to know the difference make up the DKE quiniela. We have talked about the effect before.

So who suffers from DKE? Well what about that recent example from one Blogger who omitted key details about the Truesense Imaging high-speed 12-megapixel 4/3” CMOS optical format image sensor.

Passing the new sensor off as a consumer cinema camera piece of holy grail. DKE guilty!!!

Yes the KAC-12040 Image Sensor is a 4k capable sensor with high frame rates, global shutter and rolling shutter etc etc but sorry to spoil the party and turn on the ugly lights a bit too early… That fat one in the corner is all that’s left and that sensor is designed specifically for industrial applications where inspection and observation is the task of the camera. So think machine vision, intelligent transportation systems, and surveillance applications, and you have your Truesense Imaging 4K Micro Four Thirds sized CMOS sensor. Read up on it yourself HERE.

In fact all their other new releases are destined for the industrial and surveillance market… It’s big business. Interesting but not newsworthy outside of a production plant.


Now speaking of 4K and the Dunning-Kruger Effect, that other recent news about potential GoPro Hero 4 specs is the oldest news going… Way back in January at CES Ambarella announced their successor to the A7 chip, the A9 camera System on Chip (SoC) and dropped details then. It did the rounds as news way, way, way, back then.

Ambarella A9 Feature Summary

Why the hell is it now a rumour?!!!
