Aptina preps 14-megapixel phone camera with 1080p video

updated 11:35 am EST, Mon February 15, 2010

Also has low-light ability, color correction

Aptina today announced it will begin shipping a new 14-megapixel CMOS image sensor for phones. The sensor records full HD video (1080p at 60fps) and will be used in high-end camera phones. The sensor uses 1.4 micron pixels in a 1/2.3" optical format to reduce distortion and noise. It also provides techniques to improve image quality, such as Bayer resampling for color correction and enhanced recording in low light.

The new sensor purportedly supplies low power consumption and has a narrow-angled design to fit into particularly tight spaces. Mass production of the sensor is expected in spring of this year, though Aptina hasn't detailed which companies are due to use the hardware themselves.
