SharpFirst 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.
Sharp introduces new 6 Megapixels CCD sensorThe effective number of pixels will be 2872x2160 pixels.

This new upgrade in resolution will make the subject Resolution even more difficult to explain to the regular consumer than before. I already hear the salesman on the floor trying to explain why a 4 Megapixels CCD of, for example, the Nikon D2H would provide a more satisfying clear result than this high-resolution 6 Megapixels version in that small compact digital camera. Questions like "Why should I spend my money on that nice x Megapixels DSLR if I can get 6 Megapixels packed in a small, light weight format camera with a price tag that is even more interesting?" Well, let us wait and see which manufacturers will introduce some exciting new models in the coming weeks, stay tuned!
