Color CMOS 12-megapixel (4096x3072) PureCelŪPlus-S Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV12895 is a high-speed PureCel®Plus-S image sensor that brings 4K2K video and 12-megapixel images to consumer-grade drones, surveillance systems, and 360-degree action cameras. Leveraging a 1.55-micron pixel, the OV12895 captures stunning still images using 10-bit or optional 12-bit readout architecture that provides high-bit depth snapshots.

The OV12895 is built on OmniVision's PureCel Plus-S stacked-die architecture, featuring backside illumination for ultra-high resolution and crisp, vibrant images across all light levels. The stacked-die structure allows for additional sensor functionality while enabling smaller die sizes compared to non-stacked sensors.

The OV12895 captures ultra-high-resolution 4K2K video at 60 frames per second (fps) and full high-definition (FHD) 1080p videos at 240 fps with full field of view, enabling high-quality slow-motion video capture.

Available in the widely used 1/2.3-inch optical format, the OV12895's low chief ray angle of 5 degrees is suitable for mature lens ecosystems. The sensor currently is available in both RW and CLGA package formats.
