Is this the answer to low light photography.
Interesting article in today's Times about the first perfect digital camera, capable of recording each individual particle in low light, being developed by American researchers. Professor Fossum, who invented the technology that powers the process in smartphones,
and who has just been awarded the 2017 Queen Elizabeth prize for engineering, is working on a CMOS chip with a billion pixels that can each detect single photons at room temperature. It is expected to be available to scientists in five years and to the public in 10 years - or is this wishful thinking!!!!!!

Probably the K3ii replacement scheduled for an April 1st release date.

And with a new Quantum Processor from research just announced at Sussex Uni to get the images out of it.

I often enhance the quality of my recorded pictures with some post process software such as format factory and Improve Video Quality

That sounds like an amazing prospect! If there's one thing I most struggle to get right it's snapping in low-level light... not a unique problem though, granted!
