Sharp introduces new 6 Megapixels CCD sensor

Dennis Hissink : 2003-12-17 12:05:51
First caught by Phil Askey from DPReview we can bring you some more information about a new sensor Sharp is introducing today. In the upcoming weeks we will see some new camera introductions that will take place just before and during the CES show in Las Vegas (8-11 January 2004). If Sharp is going to provide their new 1/1.8-inch 6 Megapixels sensors we don't know yet, but 2004 seems to gonna be the year of high, higher and highest resolutions! The new Sharp sensor is called RJ21T3AA0PT/ST and will be mass-produced in January 2004. The size of this sensor ensures an easy upgrade from the existing 5 Megapixels cameras into a 6 Megapixels one. The resolution of this new 1/1.8-inch 6 Megapixels sensor will be 2934x2167 pixels.


Sony develops Full-Circle 360° Camera Module

Dennis Hissink : 2003-12-10 00:10:23
Until now, taking a 360° panorama with a normal lens has required taking multiple shots while rotating the camera slowly and then combining ("stitching") those shots together to form the panorama. In contrast, the 360° full-circle lens allows the full 360° surroundings of the camera to be imaged at the same time with a single lens. Sony has now developed a camera module that uses this 360° full-circle lens, and is releasing as commercial products both a camera module that uses a 380K-pixel, 30 fps CCD that outputs a ring-shaped image as a composite video signal as well as a high-resolution camera module that uses a 1.28 MP, 7.5 fps CCD with a built-in panorama expansion processing function.


SMaL presents Ultra-Pocket 4 Rapid Development Kit

SMaL Camera Technologies, a developer of electronic imaging solutions and enabler of award-winning super-thin digital still cameras, announced today its new Ultra-Pocket 4 rapid development kit for 2 Megapixel credit card cameras with color TFT display. The Ultra-Pocket 4 kit enables OEMs and ODMs to quickly fill the void in the 2-megapixel digital camera market for extremely thin, fashionable, and portable cameras for the on-the-go lifestyle, in the $150 retail price range. "Consumers worldwide are demanding digital cameras that meet not only their photography needs, but also their lifestyle and budget requirements," says Maurizio Arienzo, SMaL's president and chief executive officer.


Sharp develops Ultra Wide-Angle Viewing LCD module

Dennis Hissink : 2003-10-05 01:50:20
Sharp Corporation announced the development of a new LCD module featuring ultra-wide viewing that enables clear display of images seen from all angles, making it ideal for use in mobile devices such as mobile phones, PDAs, and digital still cameras. Leveraging the company's proprietary mobile Advanced Super View LCD technology to provide a wide viewing angle, high contrast, and quick response, the module is slated to be sample shipped starting in December 2003, with volume production to begin next spring. At this moment it is not known which camera brand will use this new Wide-Angle Viewing LCD module. Maybe the upcoming events like PMA 2004 and CeBIT 2004 will give us some new cameras with this new LCD built-in.


Fujifilm Super CCD SR - Explanation of operation

Dennis Hissink : 2003-09-28 10:58:06
This year Fujifilm introduced their 4th generation Super CCD sensors. One of these sensors, the Super CCD SR is found in the FinePix F700 camera. The strongness of the operating CCD SR is not random, but varies according to the contrast range. It is easy to understand if you think of sunglasses with coloured glasses. At dark or normal light conditions, the glasses stay clear and you can see everything perfectly. But in brighter sunshine, the colour correction of the glasses becomes stronger. You can see this phenomenon very well by looking at a bright shiny cloudy sky with and without sunglasses. This difference is also noticeable on the pictures made by the Fujifilm FinePix F700 compared to a camera equipped with a normal CCD.


SMaL announces new Rapid Development Kit

SMaL created the ultra-thin digital camera category in 2001 with the introduction of the Ultra-Pocket VGA prototype camera at the 2001 International Consumer Electronics Show, where it was awarded "Best of CES" for digital imaging.


Fujifilm announces SuperCCD HR and SR sensors

Dennis Hissink : 2003-08-14 14:02:46
Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc. today reached a new landmark in the industry's quest for a perfectly life-like digital image. Its proprietary Super CCD technology has created new standards for exceptional digital camera imaging quality since 2000. Now, its fourth-generation devices provide increased resolution, and extended dynamic range, creating for the first time pictures that can begin to match those taken with film. The technology will be marketed under two names - Super CCD HR and Super CCD SR - and will appear in products later this year. The new Super CCD HR (high resolution) announced today incorporates a total of 6.63 million pixels into a 1/1.7" chip, performance made possible through new strides in miniaturization.


Sony LD Shot Ink Trajectory Control technology

Dennis Hissink : 2003-08-14 13:54:28
Sony Corporation today announced the development of LD Shot (Lateral Deflection Shot) ink trajectory control technology that, when used in conjunction with Line Head method inkjet printing, enables near photograph quality images to be printed in as quick as six seconds. Having already introduced a lineup of dye sublimation printers, Sony aims to further enhance its standing in the growing printer market by using LD Shot technology to facilitate the development of a Line Head inkjet printer for practical use. With continuing advancement in digital still camera technology and resulting increased quality of photographed images, printer capabilities have also developed to a level where near photograph quality printouts can now be realized.
