The Live MOS sensor is a brand name of Image sensor used by Lecia, Panasonic and Olympus in their Four Thirds System DSLR manufactured since 2006. (Olympus E-330, Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 and Leica Digilux 3).
Additional recommended knowledge
It is possibly researched and developed by Panasonic. It claimed that it can achieve the same quality as CCD while keeping energy consumption down to CMOS levels.
Due to low energy consumption, it became possible to add the Live View function to all the Four Thirds Cameras since 2006 (except the Olympus E-400).
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.
