OmniVision has dropped the OV10810 on to the scene, which the manufacturer is boasting as the "first" native 16:9 CMOS image sensor that is capable of capturing 1080p HD videos and 10-megapixel stills simultaneously.

While this is actually capable on some cameras on the market already, this level of quality hasn't been seen before. Using OmniVision's 1.4-micron OmniBSI pixel architecture, the OV10810 RAW sensor is also touted for improved low-light sensitivity, higher dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio. OmniVision is pegging this 1/2.5-inch sensor as ideal for high-end smartphones as well as digital still and video camera hybrids.

It isn't clear when we'll actually see this technology implemented on the consumer level. Hopefully by next year's CES at the latest.
