The more you Know the less you Understand

You just proved the point I made. Thanks

ps: you may want to read the very first sentence of te Wikipedia link a bit more carefully. But I have an engineering background and have explored PS2 texture compression- similar to the new Foveon arrangement by what do I know

I also have an engineering background, in fact I think that pretty much everyone here on the forum has enough engineering to understand how this works.

I think part of the problem is that the similarity to PS2 texture compression is somewhat misleading you as to how the sensor works.  It's not really the same thing... people are claiming it's a kind of YUV thing but that's just a simplified model to think about it in a way that makes more sense than RGB - it's still not the same way it actually works.
