LG Develops First 5.0 Megapixel Zoom Camera Phone Module

The pictures you capture with your mobile phone will soon be even better if LG has their way. They have developed a new high resolution camera module to be built into handsets. What makes this one different than all the others? It is the world’s first 5 megapixel module and it supports 3 times optical zoom. That enough imaging power for you? Well there’s more. The module also features inner zoom.

As the names would suggest, inner zoom has a lens which moves inside of the camera module. An outer zoom lens is less portable and therefore less usable. The inner zoom allows users to take higher quality pictures and to take them more quickly. It also allows for better light control because of its iris function. That means cleaner and clearer picture quality.

Nine researchers worked day and night for one and a half years (is it just me or does that sound like an SAT math question?) to develop the module. “We expect that this will give LG the momentum to remain at the head of the pack in premium camera phone market.”, said Skott Ahn, Executive Vice President of LG Electronics.
