Re: "46MP Foveon x3 sensor is still the state-of-the-art technology"..

When I asked Yamaki-san whether they ever tried to put non-Merril sensor into Merril camera [or, put Merril engine into non-Merril camera] to get better processing speed..he answered that they never did; instead he asked me whether I like picture created by non-Merril sensor better than Merrill ones..

From the conversation, I may interpret Yamaki-san’s priority is image quality..but somehow I believe he took my suggestion and consider the alternatives..

For the time being I keep shooting DP1x..

The sensor is fine. But the body is terribly out of date. Give us live view and a faster processor.

I thought there were rumors of an SD1 update or a new SD1 variant that would have Live View... Guess not... :-/


Not yet (hope springs eternal), but you can always start one.
