Mechanical Shutter Competition

etnews.co.kr tells about the new Samsung 12MP camera phone using mechanical shutter from Korean company Sungwoo Electronics.

Up to now, the Japanese maker Copal has accounted for 90% of the global market of mechanical shutters, equivalent to HP in the printer manufacturing business. Backed by the patents, it has dominated the shutter manufacturing business in the global market for digital cameras. However, it has overlooked the market for mobile phone. By beginning the shutter manufacturing for mobile phones, Sungwoo Electronics was able to secure many patents and then manufacture a shutter for 12 mega-pixel cameras.
