Greetings Everyone:


Seems that there are a couple of companies that make a Cmos Sensors at full HD
1920 X 1080 for Pocket size camcorders.

The one company that I know for the new Sony HDRTG1, which uses a Exmor
Cmos sensor.

There is another one which is Sanyo, but I don't know which sensor they use.

What Cmos Sensor does Aiptek use?

Regards Robert

I have no idea who is the original manufacturer of the CMOS in the Aiptek but they seem to be regular 5MP digital camera sensors. I don't think they were specially designed for them since I haven't come across any information to suggest otherwise.

I think the Sanyo could be the Altasens altachrome sensor, and the Aiptek might still be the Micron (though seems to have improved). The Sony sensor looks like it is used in the Casio F1, and Samsung 1080p camcorder model, but does not seem as good for picture (but has resolution) as the sensor used in the Sr12 camcorder.

Greetings Wayne12:


Thanks for the information about Sanyo's and Aiptek's sensors.

Speaking about Micron, their sensor division known as Aptina imaging may have

already developed the next generation 1920 X 1080 sensor.

I hope we will see this new sensor showing up on new Aiptek in Spring/Summer
of 2009.

I happened to find this recent news link that talks about this HD sensor:

Micron's CMOS division is now called Aptina Imaging:

Micron is in Boise.

Aptina's home office is in San Jose.
