Re: Micron to Unveil 8-Megapixel Image Chip

From the link: ... enables pocket-sized cameras and cell phones to capture bursts of 10 high-quality photos in a single second or even high-definition video.

It isn't exciting to think of it as cheapo point&shoot.

I'm more interested in the HD-video aspect.

Since 1080i is "2Mp at 30fps", I wonder what aspect-ratio the 2Mp mode will use?

From the link: "With large memory chips coming out on camera phones, you are talking about capturing 20 to 30 minutes of HD-quality video on a mobile device..."

Only downside is more concern seems to be placed on the "HD-quality" of the chip - with no mention of the cheapo lenses being used.
