Sharp Corporation developed a thinnest CMOS camera module for Smartphones. Sharp claims, this module is the thinnest in the industry with a 12.1 megapixels capability and optical image stabilization. The module codenamed RJ63YC100 comes in just 5.47 mm in height and is intentionally designed for upcoming smartphones. It is expected to start shipping somewhere in the month of December 2011.
Sharp RJ63YC100 camera module comes with a lens-shift system which controls the lens inside the module. With a high-density packing technology Sharp was able to achieve the industry's thinnest CMOS camera module and this helps a lot in reducing the thickness of a smartphone. The module supports to capture high quality images and with a wide variety of situations. The CMOS allows the user to capture images even in the case of low-lighting conditions. The camera can capture images while on motion and moving objects too. Sharp RJ63YC100 supports video capture at full HD (1080p) with reduced blurring and users can transfer videos to enjoy on LCD TV or on a large screen.
