Since the invention of the Kodak Bayer pattern, which is the most popular color filter array (CFA), many digital cameras have deployed CFAs. A Bayer CFA has even been used in the Mastcam imagers onboard the Mars rover Curiosity. In recent years, many variants of CFAs have been invented, including various RGBW CFAs, universal CFAs, etc. Associated with the development of CFAs, newer and powerful demosaicing algorithms have also been developed, including deep learning. Recently, new cameras with CFA 2.0 have been manufactured (BOBCAT IGV-B2320 v1.0, manufactured by IMPERX). The new cameras are suitable for both normal and low-light environments. This Special Issue focuses on new developments in digital cameras using various CFAs as well as demosaicing algorithms for color, multispectral, and hyperspectral imagers. The following topics are of interest:
- New sensors/imagers that incorporate various CFAs;
- Optimization of imagers/sensors that incorporate CFAs under diverse lighting conditions;
- Special imagers for foggy, hazy, or turbulent environments;
- New CFA patterns;
- New demosaicing algorithms for color, multispectral, and hyperspectral images;
- New joint denoising and demosaicing algorithms;
- New inpainting algorithms with application to demosaicing;
- New denoising algorithms for improving demosaicing in low lighting conditions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
