    Sources: Mass production of 5-megapixel CMOS digital cameras to begin
    in 2H, prices expected to drop US$50

    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).
