Startup Claims 16.8M Pixel Camera Sensor

TopdownThought Number Of Pixels isn't all (209 comments)

  • But he was skeptical that a 16-megapixel CMOS chip would produce the same high-quality pictures as his company's forthcoming chip. "You are going to get better image quality out of a CCD than from CMOS," he said.
The X10 cameras exhibit this problem. They are very cheap, but they produce sub-par picture quality because they are CMOS based. So it seems that even though they may have the pixel count up, they would still need to work on the other problem with CMOS, the quality. If they don't I'm sure that the CCD models will still sell well, and that there will be a bunch of people buying these cameras getting annoyed at sales people: "You said it is XX megapixel like that one, but the pictures it takes are crap!"
