Sony Creates the Worlds Smallest HD Camera – The MCB1172

Sony, often known for shrinking electronics down a tad, have created the MCB1172 which is the worlds smallest HD camera. The camera is smaller then a coin at 9.5mm x 7.1mm and is capable of capturing images at 8.3 megapixels. The camera is said to already be entering the mass production status which is great.

The camera is more then likely to be used in Sony’s next range of camera equipment such as point & shoot and HD camcorders. The camera can deliver images at a resolution of 720p which isn’t the highest definition out (1080p) but still will give stunning images. Face detection is built in along with movie stabilisation, auto focus and motion autofocus. Slow-mo videos can be captured too at a rate of 120fps.

It will be interesting to see where this sensor will be included. Another possibility is mobile phones to allow for HD recording.
