Kodak to make cell phone cameras better

Kodak is doing major things with cell phone cameras. They will add functionality such as image stabilization, red-eye reduction, and face recognition to camera handsets.

Today they introduced the KAC-05020 image sensor is the world's first 1.4 micron CMOS pixel device, offering up to a 5-megapixel image resolution. The new sensor will support imagery up to ISO 3200 and support for full 720p video at 30 fps.

The sensor is also supported by the TI OMAP and OMAP-DM solutions, enabling a host of Kodak's image processing and enhancement features, including digital image stabilization, rapid auto-focus, red-eye reduction, and face recognition.

With this type of sensor for cell phones expect the next generation of camera phones to be a whole lot better.
