About Security Cameras Not so long ago, only big corporate offices and places like parking garages and banks could afford security cameras. The Internet changed this, of course. Now, all you need is a camera that connects to the Internet, and you can protect your house against burglars, vandals, wildContinue Reading

Samsung and Omnivision Claim Smallest Camera Pixels 

Each has made CMOS camera chips with pixel pitches of just 0.56 micrometers Last month, two companies said they have reached the next stage in shrinking the pixels on CMOS camera chips. Both Santa Clara–based Omnivision and South Korea’s Samsung claimed pixels with a pitch of just 0.56 micrometers (measured from the center ofContinue Reading
