(1/2.3" 6.2x4.6mm) Smaller CMOS sensor size with f/1.8 lens, 24mm wide angle lens, 16 effective megapixel, 99 focus areas, 2cm macro shoot, 7fps, isn't it too good to believe? I still curious on small sensor size, will it enough to capture sharp photo in low light? Although they claim they can, but i still doubt. May be their processor manage to do it with the help of f/1.8 lens.
