Kodak is working on a new 5 megapixel CMOS that will be used in its new digital cameras and in several cell phones from Motorola, CNET reports:
While Perez would not release details on the camera phone, he did say that the new Kodak camera would have a Kodak-developed CMOS chip and be a 5-megapixel camera. The Kodak CMOS camera will be released in time for the holiday season and the Motorola-Kodak camera phone with a Kodak CMOS chip will follow close behind.
Kodak has been known to be developing a CMOS sensor with technology from IBM.
"Our CMOS sensors have been well advancing for many years. And now we will have the ability to embed the sensor in the phone with all the richness we have with our imaging software. It will allow us to make the sensor, the most important part of the camera, able to manage the light, color, and the like," said Perez.
Kodak also announced that it's going to leave the low-end digital camera market, because it's barely profitable.
