High Definition(HD) now brought to Digicams

Micron Technology recently announced that they've developed a two CMOS sensor that brings 720p high-definition video capture to consumer-level digital cameras, thus bringing HD to digicams. The sensor, which fits into a 1/2.5-inch optical format, can capture 720p video at 60 fps. It can also take 15 still photos in a rapid sequence.

The MT9P401 is a 5-megapixel sensor designed for "hybrid cameras".The sensor also enables a 15-frame burst mode. Mass production of the sensor is expected in the third quarter of this year. Another sensor, the 8-megapixel MT9E001, which is now in mass production, is capable of 720p video at 30 frames per second, with a 10-frame burst mode at its highest resolution.
