Aptina has started to sample a 1/3-inch native full high-definition (HD) 1080p60 video sensor that supports electronic image stabilization (EIS), as well as all HD video modes (1080p60, 1080p30 and 720p60) without losing field of view, a key attribute for consumer pocket digital video (DV), camcorder, web, sports action and video conferencing camera applications.
Leveraging a new 2.2-micron pixel design and Aptina A-Pix pixel technology, the AR0330 delivers smooth full HD video capture at 60fps, high low-light performance and overall color and video quality. With its 3x3 on-sensor binning mode, the AR0330 also supports WVGA with high-speed capture options at 120fps and 240fps, permitting slow-motion video features. The AR0330 can also capture a 3.2MP still image due to its multi-aspect ratio format.
"Image stabilization"? OK, I'll bite. Except for the headline, where is it mentioned? And the data sheet is "secure information" ... c'mon guys, I'm not going to jump through hoops just to see if this is marketing bullshit or not!!
