Corephotonics Offers Dual Lens Smartphone Camera Possibility

corephotonicsThe world of digital photography in smartphones have progressed a whole lot, and here is a possible improvement in the realm of digital cameras in smartphones. Corephotonics could very well open up the door to a dual lens smartphone camera in the future, where they have already begun to pitch a dual-lens concept to smartphone manufacturers. Corephotonics will make use of a couple of lenses that have two different focal lengths. One of these lens happens to be wide-angle, while the other would stand at 3x zoom. This translates to the ability to switch lenses in order to magnify the more distant subjects without having to resort to digital zoom.

In a particular test set-up, it compared the dual-lens system side-by-side alongside a traditional smartphone camera, where both modules pointed in the direction of a test card which is approximately a foot away. The Corephotonics system managed to output a clear 13-megapixel image, even when it was at 1x or 3x zoom. When you compare it to Nokia’s PureView cameras, those would solely rely on digital zoom, where outputting a 3x magnified image results in a resolution drop all the way down to five megapixels. It sure looks as though there is a very bright future for dual lens smartphone cameras!
