Sharp on Wednesday announced it will ship the thinnest auto-focus, 5-megapixel CMOS camera module ever made.

Electronista has translated the Japanese press release and posted the following article:

Despite its ultra-small size, the camera features a signal-to-noise ratio that is 1.6 times greater than the best current model, which results in higher-quality images. At just over a quarter-inch thick, the module utilizes a flat-screen lens and high-density design for its auto-focusing CMOS sensor.

The module, named RJ63SC100, has obvious application possibilities in cellular phones and other multi-tasking small devices, and ultra-small digital cameras as well. The square module measures just 0.37 inches, promising a form factor much smaller than that of some other current high-feature 5-megapixel phone offerings.
