Small technological feat to Sharp which presents the smallest photo sensor never designed, but still 12.1 Megapixels!
Smartphones and tablets include sensors photo still more small but whose resolution only increases. As such, the nippon Sharp has a new cap in the miniaturization of these sensors. It is, according to the manufacturer, the smaller sensor ever developed to date.
1/3.2 CMOS format, it is only 11 x 11 x 5.47 mm. What does prevent him from boarding an image stabilizer, a backlight module to improve the quality of the photographs (including in low light conditions), and to propose a resolution of 12.1 Megapixels.
A technical feat, especially this sensor is capable of filming in HD 1080p. Quite logically, they are first Sharp products that integrate this sensor, including the Aquos SH - 01 d and 102SH who must exit at the Japan before the end of the year. But after, this small sensor photo/video will be produced in mass and there are chances that found integrated with products sold in us.
