Samsung’s new Full HD webcam CMOS sensors appear in Q2

               To satisfy potential customers, Samsung releases two new CMOS image sensors of smaller size and higher picture quality. Size, they say, is also very important as LCD displays are getting thinner and thinner, so potentially manufacturer may choose a smaller webcam sensor that is worse rather than bulkier one. Both of new Samsung CMOS sensors are almost ready for mass production and will appear on the shelves coupled with laptops and netbooks in Q2.

Samsung S5K6A1 CMOS sensor is a bit humbler, shoots 720p video at 30fps and 1.3 megapixel photos. And that’s enough about it. S5K5B3 is not only just better with its 1080p video at same 30fps and 2.1 megapixel images, but is also smarter – reads business cards and barcodes perfectly well, even in situations where were monitor is the only source of light. Needless to tell that both of these Samsung goodies have autofocus with enhanced depth of field or EDoF function,
