The new back-illuminated "T4K05" features one of the industry's smallest(Note 1) pixel sizes with 1.12μm and a HDR function enhances image quality, even under conditions with high levels of light and dark contrast.

The new CMOS image sensor is equipped with a VCM driver, which provides automatic focus control. This minimizes the need for external lens control, supporting smaller and thinner camera modules.

The T4K05 is supplied in a ¼-inch optical format and offers a 4:3 aspect ratio. Pixel count is 3,280 (V) x 2,464 (H) and frame rate for full-size images is 30fps.
