Big competitor of Sony The world of photography sensors for smart devices hopes to break forward with a pair of new products with impressive technology
Photography enthusiasts have always argued that the number of pixels in the camera sensor, or the maximum resolution it can capture with precision, is not the main factor and certainly not the sole factor affecting image quality - though it has never prevented smartphones from running at maximum resolutions.
Now this trend seems to have calmed down a bit for a change, and is beginning to pave the way for a focus on equally important aspects of digital photography - as our new American OmniVision product pair highlights.
The new central sensor is the OV13880, which offers maximum resolution of "only" 13 megapixels, but as stated makes it much more advanced - the pixels themselves are of relatively large dimensions of 1 / 1.4 microns and the overall sensor size is of 1 / 2.4 inches (Equivalent to 21 megapixel sensor with smaller dimensions of 1 / 1.12 micron, according to the manufacturer), plus laser-based auto-focus as well as phase-based 240 sampling rate support, and video-resolution dessert capability 4k At a rate of perpendicular 60 per second, and photography Video FullHD at Super Slow Motion-rate of 240 frames per second.
The second sensor is the OV5880, and is designed to take the front cameras to a new level of Performence, With large pixels of 1 / 1.4 micron, support the same advanced auto-focus technologies as the OV13880, and photo capability Video 1440p at up to 60 frames per second, or FullHD at 120 frames per second.
We're going to see these new sensors in early products early next year, when it's already clear that the need to understand the sensor identity behind the megapixels is more significant than ever before.
