OmniVision OV5647 5-Megapixel RAW-Capable Image Sensors for Mobile Devices


The OmniVision OV5647 has all necessary automatic image control functions, including automatic exposure control, automatic white balance, automatic band filter, automatic 50/60-Hz luminance detection, and automatic black level calibration. OEM mobile gadget companies looking to implement a cost-effective solution for high-resolution RAW image capture should benefit a lot from the OV5647. Smart phone users will absolutely love to shoot high-definition uncompressed pictures and videos without the need to carry around their bulky digital cameras/DLSR and HD video cams!

  1. A MacAulay says:

    I want to digitize 8mm film running at 16 frames per second. The film image in the projector will be relayed by a 20mm focal length triplet working at 1 to 0.6.What resolution is possible using a PI computer?
