Sharp Unveils Smallest 10MP CCD

Sharp Electronics has revealed their latest creation: the world's most compact 10MP CCD. With a form factor of 1/1.7" and 2.05 mu thickness, the chipset also features a sustained 25fps frame rate for video purposes. While this chip will most likely not find it's way into Coolpixes (due to the current alliance with Sony), it will be interesting to see how well it handles noise and what ISOs it will be rated for given it's pixel density. Sharp expects to begin shipping the sensor en masse in January 2006.
