    So the image on your screen, the image you like, has a brighter (better?) green color than the one that shows on my screen. As I see it, each of us has some preferences for how much contrast and ...

    Looking at that last image, there is no doubt that the building and the brown tones look a lot better. But in that image the green from the foliage does not seem to be properly green. It seems too ...

    I like your last image better. I have read about "palette" changes with SD15, and I know my SD10 has excellent color. One key to the images from Foveon is the vibrancy of the color. I think your ...
  • How many times has this been the subject of various threads and concern? One is put in mind of the letter from Mark Twain, that the report of his death was an "exaggeration." Clearly this Olympus ...
  • Yes, and what Sigma has done over the past few years is unusual and remarkable, because they have entirely changed the image and perception of their company and products. People are enthusiastic ...
  • At this point the DP series (Does the P stand for pocket?) has past the point of having its main virtue be that it is small, and instead is simply a very good camera. For any size. I'm not that ...
  • As I see this, MF is not exactly or even mainly about the pixel count (although most sensible people would expect some increase in pixel count compared to a smaller sensor...), it is about the ...
  • The English is quite satisfactory. Thanks for your translation. It is very interesting if even higher resolution can be obtained from the quattro sensor.
  • I agree. The other truth is that it takes a certain, and large, amount of light hitting the sensor, ANY sensor, to make an image comparable to what the Sigma/Foveon cameras make, and the Sigma ...
  • It is a surprise, but, as I see it, Sigma is mainly a lens maker. And their latest lenses are superb by all accounts. Why not a superb 14mm? I really hope it is a good performer. Richard
  • Yes, very: Is there some hidden downside in getting this information into the final result? It just seems kind of mysterious to me: the premise of the q sensor is that it is more effective with ...
  • Replied in Good ol' SD9
    Thanks for your analysis and information. I'm trying to think my way through this, and it seems to me that the sensors must be tested and set up with different adjustments in camera to get ...

    But...Exactly what "color" was that (ahem, particular) sky? No matter which image we pick it was not the same color everywhere. Or in each image. And the color determination, as we all know, is ...

    Thanks for posting. I'm not sure how much "sharper" any camera needs to be. Or why. Richard
  • Very appealing, very beautiful images. Thanks for posting.
  • So this means we are ok with a Canon 1000D and a tripod? As compared to hand holding a q?

    My favorite in regard to testing is double blind beer tasting, which is both humbling and rewarding. Evidence is something else altogether, and there is some hope for evidence, in terms of utility. ...
  • Replied in The Top Layer
    Color blotches seem to occur a lot on (wet?) asphalt, on grey feathers, and on things where the scene presents a certain level (frequency) of detail. And where the detail does not present a lot of ...
  • Replied in The Top Layer
    I thought about this for a while and yes, of course, it is ISO 1600. And yet still, there is the blotching, right in a textured area in the lower to mid-tone. And we could very likely expect the ...
  • Replied in The Top Layer
    On the OP's image of the color checker you can see color blotches in the rough surface of the well lit areas of black cover for the color checker. The darker shadows seem fine. The blotching seems ...
