Kodak 5MP Sensor Plans

CNET reports that Kodak plans to release its own CMOS sensor in a Kodak camera and several Motorola cell phones by the end of the year. The new Kodak camera would have a Kodak-developed CMOS chip and be a 5MP camera, probably this one. It's not clear what is the sensor used in the camera-phone.

The Kodak CMOS camera will be released in time for the holiday season and the Motorola-Kodak camera phone with a Kodak CMOS chip will follow close behind.

"We're going to be abandoning the low-end of the digital camera business. As everyone knows, we're not making much money there. Now we have our own CMOS sensors, so you might see us going down in price because we can make money," said Kodak President Antonio Perez.
