New 7.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor from Samsung

Samsung made a announcement today about their new 7.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that, they claim, will offer the same quality as CCD sensors while using less power which will lead to longer battery life. Samsung claims that their new CMOS sensor will operate at a power level of less than 10 percent of a comparable CCD sensor, making it very suitable for use in cameraphones and small digital cameras

Recently, we have increasing number of digital camera manufacturers are moving over to CMOS sensors from the more conventional CCD chips as the technology continues to improve, but CMOS sensors are more prone to picking up electronic noise than CCDs
