In foveon the light is naturally absorbed in the silicon, so the bottom sensor gets a less intense signal - it also has an actual depth, so some of the light can hit the side of the "well". I for one still think that it gives the best images at a pixel level though.

For some reason thought the computational processing to generate the image seems very intense and 3rd party apps dont handle it very well (if at all) - if it worked properly in lightroom at launch to help make colour matching easy on product photography I would have a pair of SD1s now...

Doesn't that sound familiar though?!
