Sharp 12 Megapixel Sensor for Compacts

November 9, 2006 | Mark Goldstein | Digital | Comment |

DPReview are reporting that Sharp have just announced a 12 megapixel 1/1.7” image sensor with 1.88 microns. Given the disappointing image quality of a lot of 10 megapixel compact cameras, another escalation in the megapixel wars is not really a welcome development. What do you think - would you buy a camera with such a small sensor and high pixel count?
