Omnivision and Aptina Sensors Inside Blackberry Z10

Chipworks: The Z10 smartphone that is supposed to begin Blackberry comeback, relies on Aptina's secondary front sensor and Omnivision's OV8830 BSI-2 primary sensor.

The primary camera ISP is Fujitsu Milbeaut MB80645C, typically used in DSCs.


  1. BlackBerry Z10 Camera: The Worst Low-Light Performance We’ve Seen in a Long Time

    1. That's the camera using the OV8830.

  2. Gizmodo is pathetic. In the early morning in the bedroom I can see objects with my eyes. I tried to take a picture with iPhone 5. It failed just like the Z10. Would Gizmodo call the iPhone 5 camera crap?

    The problem may not be the sensor. It may be due to the Z10 camera app.

  3. Any special requirement to use Fujitsu Milbeaut MB80645C on top of such a heavy chipset which already has decent image processing power .. (Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon)

  4. I also have the same curiosity, what's Milbeaut offering that Snapdragon doesn't? Seems like such a huge architectural redundancy.

  5. I don't think this is accurate. I think the Z10 and Q10 are using the Samsung S5K3H7Y CMOS
