We all know that Smartphone processors such as Qualcomm's Snapdragon and MediaTek are the backbone of smartphones. Similarly, DSLR and digital cameras do have a processor that works as the backbone of that camera. Bionz is an image processor used in Sony digital cameras and this processor mainly helps in converting the captured rough image data from CMOS sensor into a format that can be saved in our memory cards. Many advanced features have also been integrated into the Bionz image processor over time: Higher image quality and processing speed are some of the advanced features which have been recently integrated into this image processor. Advanced capabilities of “Bionz” allow it to support unique technology such as Face Detection and DRO (Dynamic Range Optimiser).

As Bionz is the image processor used by Sony, there are different image processors used by different brands, for example, Google uses its own image processor called ‘Pixel Visual Core’ and Canon uses its own image processor called ‘DIGIC’. Each image processor has its own unique features and which makes the output of each of these image processors different. In the end, it is totally your choice to select which image processor and its respective brand provide you the best camera results.
