Smallest camera in the world is the size of a grain of sand

The OmniVision OV6948 camera joined the Guinnes Book of Records, the world's most famous record book, as the smallest camera ever created. It is the size of a small grain of sand, less 0.575 x 0.575 x 0.232 mm and made for medical use, doctors can use it in high precision surgical surgeries.

The camera can penetrate human body veins up to 1.0 mm and help with a detailed view of the patients body. So far, most surgeries are done without the aid of cameras, since so few devices are so small, and most deliver a resolution lower than the 200×200 delivered by it. The OmniVision OV6948 is capable of capturing images at 30FPS with analogue output and little noise.

According to Tehzeeb Gunja, director of medical marketing at OmniVision Technology Inc., demand for endoscopes is expected to grow by about 30% by 2023 in dentistry, veterinary medicine, and other general medical applications.

OmniVision has also thought of ways to lower the device's production cost, according to the company, each glass lens, traditionally used in endoscopy cameras, needs to be manufactured individually and costs about $ 250. Alternatively, the company developed a different approach, created lenses with plastic modules that can be manufactured in packages, which resulted in a reduction in costs.
