High-resolution digital cameras mainstay

Makers are adopting high-resolution sensors and viewfinders, and raising optical zoom capability.





  • Better resolution & zoom: China makers are adopting ½.33in to ½.5in CMOS or CCD image sensors that support 5 to 16MP images. They are employing QVGA, WQVGA or HVGA LCD viewfinder panels. For the optical zoom, companies are hoping to surpass 20x and are turning to international lens providers such as Carl Zeiss to ensure high quality.
  • Aesthetic modifications: Suppliers are adopting compact structures and multicolor patterns to heighten the visual appeal. Many are using private molds to avoid product homogeneity. For increased durability, more cameras will have up to 5m water resistance.
  • Added value: Makers are incorporating anti-shake, smile and slow-motion capture, face tracking and motion detection attributes. Touchscreen and button, e-book reader, solar power, digital TV, GPS, USB OTG, 3D playback, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity are gaining attention as well.
  • Quotes & export forecasts: Suppliers expect prices to remain stable or decrease by 5 percent in the months ahead. Overseas sales are predicted to climb by less than 5 percent.
