...and you can mount ANY F mount lens ever sold (not that they would all work)...

Gosh, I HATED that removable back...always made it clumsy to load.

Peiasdf: I don't understand how VR and IMAX can work at the same time. One is a small mobile screen while the other huge fixed screen.

Imagine a half-spherical screen, in full 3D everywhere you look (as long as you hold your head level with the horizon)...

I wonder what cooling scheme is used for that large sensor being activated continuously...

speculatrix: this is absurd, there have been cameras in watches for years.

They even had FILM cameras in watches!

I understand they have developed an entirely new type of light sensitive imaging device based on noble metals.

I understand that for some reason, this new sensor material must be immersed in water based fluids at some point...for cooling???

Looks like the rover needs a car wash! Also, see that damage to the tires??

BTW, how do you get to a stereo (3D) image??

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (96 comments in total)

NOW I see why the price of a D500 is so high...many for "changes" ahead.

In any event, I'm certain it's a great cam!

Thank goodness it doesn't use airbags!

Turbguy1: Stereophotographers are still waiting for display technology to match (or even come close to) the resolution obtained with the humble Holmes viewer, where CONTACT PRINTS are viewed stereosopically, or even the 35mm Red Button Realist viewer (much less a medium format stereo viewer).

They are very bothered by the "screen door effect" from even 4K phones.

Realize there is a slight but perceptible perceived resolution increase when viewing a fused stereo pair of images, and the magnified displays must resolve this resolution issue, or just go to a smaller field of view...

Promising display tech. Sounds like the FOV is still limited for now. I agree that once resolution and other IQ measures get high enough, it will match exceed the older analog viewing methods.

I'm certain things WILL improve. They just ain't there yet using cell phones...

Ahhh...VR, one step closer to the "Holodeck"

Also to be known as "Mankind's Last Great Invention"!

I sure wish that "OVF size" was measured and reported as Horizontal or Diagonal "Field of View" as an ANGLE, so all these could be directly compared!

Someone ELSE can put a Li-Ion battery on their cornea...

Reading the full patent, power is supplied wirelessly, (via induction, for instance)...

In reply to:

Turbguy1: I expect that, when used for 3D production, the maximum interocular will be limited to the actual opening of the aperture being used, and not much wider. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I don't see how it can be larger that the "hole" the sensor "looks" through...

That would require an aperture of about 65mm in diameter (when stopped down to the scenic requirement) to achieve "normal human" viewing. That one HECK of a chunk of glass, no?

Actually, using TWO (or more) lenses ahead of the sensor might be more desirable...
