Proximity Sensor

Good day!


I'm searching for a suitable sensor for a project I'm making. I am in need of a low power proximity sensor, I have read about ultrasonic sensors, but they are a bit power hungry and bulky.

What i need is something small in size, low power consumption, maybe just a battery, and an average range of about  8 inches.


Can anyone direct me to products that fit my description? The sensor would need to measure distance and I should be able to calculate speed of a falling object.
