Thanks to a new CMOS image sensor from Omnivision, you can record video at a resolution of up to 1280×720. That’s at a speed of 30 frames a second. The more reasonable 60 frames a second allows you 720×480 resolution.

The result is a 5-megapixel picture that can be either static or dynamic, the latter which can be viewed on an HDTV display. CMOS also requires less power consumption, prolonging battery life.

Officially, it’s the OV5620 CMOS chip, and it’s being sold now to digital camera makers.
