While most people are still getting to grips with 12Mp cameraphones, Toshiba has announced it will produce a 15Mp CMOS sensor for cameras and handsets next year. The sensor – which technically delivers 14.6Mp – measures 1/2.3in and is based on “backside illumination technology” (BSI). Titter ye not. Backside Illumination …
The resolving power of the camera phones tiny lenses just make these a gimmick. You cant resolve it your just making a higher resolution image of the same quality...
But you can only get the resolving power from wider lenses, which are impracticable in a phone... so stop wasting time and focus on light sensitivity and speed (higher ISO please not megapixels)
Why must scientists always stand on ceremony? What's wrong with 'arse'?
wow, all that work in miniature photodiode and illumination, just to produce an even larger blurry picture? You cannot adequately improve the image quality without focus on the LENS. THE LENS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART TOSHIBA, Do you know something about optics futures that we dont? hmmm.. may be time to invest in a few miniature lens manufacturers in case..
What a superb idea
BUT, will it bath the baby?
