On Portraiture exhibit that omits the subject article (46 comments in total)

why not...
I see it more like graphical work than "photography" but... interesting in its own right.

wkay: doesnt work, look at L1000262-DNG for example, everything is the same drab shade of grey and subject is lost in the background. That's what you get from the luminace channel with no RGB weighting. Look at B/W photography (especially movies) from the 1940s-50s and see how gorgeous the images are. Those movies all made use of color filtration in conjunction with the native color response of the film to get the compostion across. Unless Leica can match that this is a useless toy for the filthy rich.

totally agree. Plus the DR seems so limited, so many white clipping (in many ways linked to the absence of RGB weighting)

I'm really concerned about the highlights clipping.
Not that I even consider buying one of these, but the concept is interesting_
Pure-luma-sampling and uncompromised definition are great, but the DR is light-years behind film DR and I think it's betraying the hopes one's can put in this camera.
According to me at least...

maybe I'm wrong, look too fast, but exposition seems really tricky.
I guess CCD just don't have enough DR (it's quite impossible to clip a Tmax for example)
