Proving that Sharp can go big
and small, their
new LZ0P396D optical system packs in 110,000 pixels in a CMOS camera module just 1/11-inches in size. That makes this,
according to Sharp, the world's thinnest, most compact camera ever... to pose with a ladybug. This 30fps-capable
shooter is equally at home peering through a pinhole or mounted in a 3G phone in need of a second cam for videophone
action. Expect these to start shipping in volume as early as next month for just $10 a pop thereby ensuring plenty of
product to come.
