Sensor review, perhaps the main item?

Apertus is the project and Axiom is the camera. It is a 4K sensor recording 4096 x 3072 pixels, at 4:3. (4096/4=1024, 1024x3=3072 hence 4096x3072).

The sensor is built by CMOSIS, a Company based in Antwerp, Belgium who were happy to allow their sensor technology to be used in Open Source and be available to scrutiny/interest, very nice.
