inspiredan: Backscratcher

J.K. I love Foveon technology and am an avid user of Sigma SD14. The shape of this new product though is something that may take getting used to. It may feel nice in the hand though... Portability may be a problem though.

On Apple applies for dual-sensor camera patent post (71 comments in total)

Kodak used a dual sensor/lens design back in 2006 in the Kodak EasyShare V570. But the intent was to extend the zoom range while keeping the size of the camera compact. Apple's novelty relative to Kodak is capturing of luminance information.

On Fujifilm X20 Review preview (29 comments in total)

@madmaxmedia - thanks for your feedback. Agreed that the smudging is not due to the lack of AA filter. The real issue as you also point out is most likely the aggressive use of NR even at base ISO. I think the lack of AA filter emphasizes this problem even more. Glad to read that at least the raw files are better in this respect.

On Fujifilm X20 Review preview (29 comments in total)

Dear Fuji,
Why would you remove the optical AA filter if there is "smudge [of] fine details (even at ISO 100)"? Not having a filter may be okay on a larger sensor which captures more light (such as in the X100), but on smaller sensor it may only emphasize this problem.
I don't have an X20 but on my F45FD (same as F40FD), I also notice smudging of fine details at base ISO, especially around the edges of objects. If I apply slight blurring in post, the picture looks much better. I can't help but think that have that camera not had an AA filter, the smudging problem would have been even more noticeable.
Thanks,
-Dan

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)

michi098: I really wish there was another product to compete with Photoshop and Lightroom. I hate everything about Adobe, their policies, their prices, give me a chance to jump ship and I will. Heck, at this point, I'm ditching them either way. There is no way I am paying them a monthly fee. I am a hobby photographer, sometimes I don't use Photoshop for a month, and they still want me to pay? No way...

In reply to:

inspiredan: My old Kodak P880 uses phase detection auto focus for faster AF. so this is really not the first time FDAF has been included in a non-slr camera.

What led me to write the original comment was the following statement from this page: " Fujifilm was the first company to offer on-sensor phase detection in one of its cameras". Thanks Mr. Butler for clarifying the differences in the two AF technologies in question.

Essai: I have not seen a single photo made with a Sigma camera than can match the IQ of a D800 or a 5DIII.

Please someone, posts a few "unique to Foveon" pictures in the Sigma forum so we all know that you are not blind.
