The Live MOS sensor is a brand name of an NMOS Image sensor used by Panasonic, Olympus and Leica in their Four Thirds System DSLR manufactured since 2006. (Olympus E-330, Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 and Leica Digilux 3).
It is possibly[vague] researched and developed by Panasonic. It is claimed that the sensor can achieve the same image quality as CCD-based sensors while keeping energy consumption down to CMOS levels.
Also, In order to reduce the noise problem found in the first generation of Four Thirds DSLR cameras, (Olympus E-1, E-300, E-400 and E-500) which used FFT CCD sensors (due to smaller sensor size compared to the APS-C size), the Live MOS chip includes completely new noise-reduction technology.
3. Also used in Lumix GH2 4. Olympus uses this type sensor in several models.
