What the imager has is 19 million spatial locations. How the pixels are counted is once again a big deal for those discussion types. I am guessing that the G and R layers each have around 5 million pixels and the top B, 19 million. Or thereabouts.

Of course, some of our favorite negativists will argue that this is not really an X3 imager. That also, is nonsense. There are 3 layers (X3) each of which collects stuff to yield a full-color reading at each spatial location. The oh-so obvious - at least to Ricardo - interpolation that has to be going on is a moot point at best. Moot on, if you want.

Why is it a moot point? It's the truth. Of course, the tradeoff is expected to be a better sensor, otherwise Sigma wouldn't bother.

You don't get a full color reading at each spatial location like the previous sensor because what you get now is an average of Red & Green at the 19.6 MP spatial location resolution.

That's not wholly correct because of the top layer giving you information to split out the average.

No, that's why we need three layers and not one. Where exactly you say the upper layer can measure and respond what the other two are measuring? At best you get a wavelength overlap. That would cover for some not all. Otherwise we could use just one layer. You could even make the same case for a CfA if sensors worked that way.


Yes the "blue" pixels in the top layer are more detailed

They are not even quote blue unquote.

you are quipping here. They measure a certain wavelength.

No they don't.
