Samples of the TCM9518MD are available now in the U.S. only for $50 a pop

Toshiba is showing off a new mobile camera at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014, which is capable of outputting recorded images and depth data at the same time.

According to PR Newswire, Toshiba calls the new dual camera module the TCM9518MD, and it was made specifically for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. Toshiba says its the first of its kind. 

The TCM9518MD uses two 1/4-inch optical format 5MP CMOS camera modules, which are coupled with a dedicated LSI chip that is capable of measuring and adding depth data to the objects in the image. The LSI also creates 13MP images by scaling up those taken by both of the 5MP cameras (which lowers module height).

What this technology does is ultimately allow the user to refocus and defocus an image after it is taken because the twin modules and LSI chip output deep focus images not only the background and foreground, but all points in between in focus. 

Want a taste of the new mobile camera? Samples of the TCM9518MD are available now in the U.S. only for $50 a pop. However, there's currently no set date when smartphones and tablets will start using the camera.
