While not likely to be implemented in the near future, Samsung‘s MEMS (Micro Electromechanical System) shutter is a technology to look out for in the world of mobile phones. Shutters allow light to the sensor for a determined amount of time and more quickly prepare the sensor for another shot by physically blocking light from the sensor as the image is transferred to memory. No matter the advantage to image quality, mechanical weight and voltage requirements have kept their application in the mobile phone arena impractical.
