STMicroelectronics new VD6725 single-chip camera sensor is so small, it could theoretically fit in a cameraphone module as small as .2"x.2".15". The sensor is two megapixels and is capable of shooting VGA video at 30 fps or UXGA video at 15 fps. Kodak's new CMOS sensor may be small for a 5-megapixel array, but STMicroelectronics' is just small. [PR Newswire via MobileWhack]

Great! More tiny, noisy pixel sensors! Just what the world needs!
Nice chip scale package though. I wonder if that's a Shellcase package.
