Antisthenes' recent activity

  • A characteristic of a Dunning-Kruger person (google it up) is that, being ignorant in a domain — e.g. physics — he doesn't even realize that his gratuitous assertions have no relevant basis in the...

  • Also note that said Canon macro lens obviously cannot compensate for shake in the "roll" axis, as a lens only contains optical elements that are rotationally symmetric relative to the optical axis,...

  • Elsewhere in the industry, that kind of accelerometer (for measuring translational shifts when the subject distance is close) and gyroscope (for distant subjects) combination in an IS system...

  • Also note that gyroscopes can only measure the angular velocity caused by a rotation, and cannot indicate the precise location in 3D space of the rotation axis. As the camera shake's inherently...

  • Conceited, pontificating idiots like nerd2 don't even understand that an IS system must — regardless of whther it's in-body or in-lens — operate using TRANSLATION only. Any TILTING of the lens...

  • @armandino

    It doesn't seem to occur to you that there might be a disconnect between what you think your words communicate, and what they are actually "communicating".

  • > That the measurement is a statistic does not preclude assessing the uncertainty of the measurement.

    This indicates that you haven't really understood what a standard deviation, a fundamental...

  • Mansurov's logorrhea contain enough factual errors to show that: 1) he doesn't understand basic physical concepts of optics, energy, photonic noise or Poissonian statistics.  That's OK, and we ...
  • Are you talking about the perspective effect, when rendering a 3D scene as a 2D picture ? Users of, say, medium-format cameras who argue that a "standard" 80mm medium format lens will "draw", by ...
  • Er, in all my comments above, I've ultimately used DxO's "Print" DR method in my calculations, so that the noise averaging effect provided by high-resolution sensors is properly taken into account...

  • I should probably also add that smartphone pictures can be quite good e.g. in the mid-tones and lighter areas, where Poisson noise tends to dominate.

    Thus, pictures from MFT sensors, whose areas...

  • Now, assume a medium-format sensor has a DR that is, say, 2EV less than our hypothetical FF sensor. The MF sensor's DR would then be 13.29EV - 2EV = 11.29EV
    Assume the MF sensor has a FWC that's...

  • Now, assume a medium-format sensor has a DR that is, say, 2EV less than our hypothetical FF sensor. The MF sensor's DR would then be 13.29EV - 2EV = 11.29EV, which implies a system noise sdev of...

  • We can easily calculate the number of electrons at the 4.5%, 2.25%, 1.125% etc. levels, to determine the number of divisions by 2 — i.e. EVs — we can go below the 18% level until the average level...

  • Imagine a hypothetical full-frame (24x36mm) sensor whose pixels have a full well capacity (FWC) of 50,000 electrons, and a combined system noise (read noise, ADC noise etc. etc.) whose standard...

  • So, based on reasonable assumptions, a Sony MF sensor /might/ score a 14.81 EV "Print" DR.
    A Nikon D800, by comparison, scores 14.33 EV.

    14.81EV would be a nearly 2 EV improvement over the Phase...

  • DxO hasn't tested any camera equipped with Sony's medium-format CMOS sensor yet, but we can take an educated guess as to what its DR in "Print" mode would be.

    A pixel on Sony's 50MP MF sensor has...
