Sources: Mass production of 5-megapixel CMOS digital cameras to begin
in 2H, prices expected to drop US$50
Jillian Shih, Taipei; Jessie Shen,

Prices for 5-megapixel CMOS digital cameras are expected to drop from
around US$200 currently to US$150 in the second half of the year as
local companies move into mass production, according to sources.

The sources indicate that prices for 3-megapixel CMOS sensors are
currently around US$10, while 5-megapixel sensors are US$16-18.

Currently, 5-megapixel CCD digital cameras with 3x optical zooms are
priced at around US$350-450, over US$200 more than CMOS models of the
same resolution.

Sales of CMOS-based models are expected to grow by five percentage
points in 2004, from the current 30% of the DSC market, according to
Simon Yang, an analyst at the Topology Research Institute (TRI).
