More in-depth information about the camera of Moto X
The great camera is a must for the newest high-end smartphones that join the mobile world. The exceptional quality of still photos and video is something that mobile users expect and insist for, in the innovative devices. Motorola Moto X is the flagship of the company that fascinates with its highly customizable capabilities and a great camera. The smartphone is armored with a 10 MP Clear Pixel snapper, and of what we know for not, it has the ability to take excellent photos and video. For those of you who want to know what is the secret of Moto X’ camera, the following information will be rather interesting.
The camera module of Moto X is OV10820 produced by OmniVision. The technical specs of the camera module include a 10.5MP sensor and a native aspect ratio of 16:9. Those of you who are aware of those specs perhaps are not impressed just yet, because we have seen them in other cameras. The snapper of Moto X includes also a new RGBC color filter that improves the light capturing of photos and video. However the most exciting and special feature of the camera module is the two-chip approach with OmniVision OV10820 and companion OV660 chip that are responsible for the image processing in the phone. To explain it with several words, The OmniVision OV19820 with the companion OV660 chip use the information (RGBC) captured by the sensor and delivers standard RGB Bayer data. The result is a real image in digital format.
The camera of Moto X has great capabilities for capturing photos in low-light environment thanks to the 1/2.6-inch sensor and the 1.4-miciron BSI pixels. The camera module of Moto X is able to capture 1080p video; however users will not be able to do so with their phones. It is the first time to see OmniVision OV10820 integrated in a smartphone and we do expect that it will be used in other devices as well, real soon. What do you think?
