Petrogel: If the price will be similar to the IQ, then i'm sure it'll sell like hot cakes......LOL
HR:- The fact that you do not accept the colour information given to a photo-sensor, as information, is something i can not help you with and i do not really care.
- Are you sure you can read ????
To Revenant- You said: "A CFA adds colour information to a device that natively can't see in colour."This is exactly the information i was talking about.
To HowaboutRAW- Even your friend Revenant knows that CFA adds colour information to a device that natively can't see in colour.
Now gentlemen, if you excuse .....
WHO said Leica had one ??Can you READ ?
You are changing fats not me
- I mean what i write, you can remove anything you feel like from your sensor, RGB filters, even photodiodes if you don't like one. But CFA's are part of colour sensors, want it or not
Then read it till you'll change your mind !!!!
Petrogel: Das ist eine teure nutzlos roten Punkt !!!
noirdesir -Dude thanks for correcting my attempt to comment in Swiss give greetings to "Der Bauer" and the owners at Rathaus Cafe in Zurich (had great time there).
- See the Above.
- As Far As I know, Foveon X3 sensors is one thing, BSI or BI sensors is another. (very similar tho)
- Colour Filter Arrays are PART of sensors giving RAW colour information.
- Considering those sensors as parts of colour cameras, then yes you may say it (actually!! what i'm writing the last 6 comments , this last week)
Das ist eine teure nutzlos roten Punkt !!!
Congrats !!!!!! Great one.
-Who said there was a filter ?
See the Above.
-CFA is a part of COLOUR sensors, glued or stack, sometimes even behind the photocathode layer.
-"How its stacked or glued on sensor is manufacturer decision" but always part of a colour sensors
-In some cases it is possible to "scratch" off CFA or CFM layers from a sensor, sometimes isn't, in Back-Illuminated sensors for example.
-Monochromes can NOT carry colour information as they are not equipped with CFA-CFM filters
-There are also three-CCD cameras whose imaging system uses three separate charge-coupled devices (CCDs)
-Always thought of Leica's as very stylish but extremely expensive of what they could offer, cameras.
-Technically CFA is a part of all COLOUR sensors, how many sensors can you count without one? (except of course, the monochromes)(.....and the Foveon sensor )
-Never said RGB filter is the same thing as the sensor but a part of it on all colour sensors, giving colour information.
-Who said that you said about "no colours for post editing" ?
-I don't remember writing anything about Leica or Zeiss lenses
-And 'of course' i wouldn't agree more on "...better colour means better colour editing possibilities" which was at first place my main comment
veroman: Until one actually owns a Leica digital, one is really in no position to judge its worth or its capabilities. It's so very easy to denigrate the brand based on price alone and even easier to conclude that other cameras are just as good at a fraction of the price. One poster here says, "Is it better built? Probably." Probably? There's no probably about it. The precision that goes into the design and manufacture of Leica products is unequalled. You need only hold one in your hands and give it one click. Look at the seams, i.e. where a latch door meets the body. The seam is practically invisible. Most of you will own 10 or 15 different cameras by the time a single Leica needs servicing, if it does at all.
My friend the price this camera costs is like owning 10 to 15 different cameras
-It is cutting colour information, RGB filter is giving you, unless you only shoot B&W or you have a back up Nikon D4s for the coloured ones.
-There are No Colours for post-editing, unless you never colour edit you photos before printing (in this case i totally respect your skills, which i doubt).
-Back during the film days Leica could cost as much as CanoNikon (i don't remember prices from that "era", i used to have a Nikon F 501 which was a really great camera), now days Leica is only selling brand name and MAYBE sharper images, nothing more.
@HRI agree the image quality is excellent ........ but for a € 1500 camera.If Leica doesn't have any kind of trouble selling those bodies, that's good for Leica, but in my humble opinion it's a little bit pointless to cut off information from a sensor.
If the price will be similar to the IQ, then i'm sure it'll sell like hot cakes......LOL
Petrogel: Imagine how many people will ask for their money back, when they'll find out that their new shiny Samsung S6, is equipped with a photo sensor different to the one DxoMark ranked on top place on the mobile image quality list.
I'm sure Apple people are already smiling .
@TrojYou on the other hand are helpless, no matter what account you are using to comment
