Re: what's 3-D?

The interesting thing is that people argue about 3D effect looking at downsized to the screen resolution photos, not at the 100% crops that show Foveon superior pixel resolution. It's been shown many times that as soon as you downsize the picture, there is no difference between a well exposed Foveon and Bayer image. I remember in the past people were ascribing Foveon qualities to a bayer image because they were unaware that it was taken with a bayer sensor. So all that talk about Foveon voodoo is entirely located in some people brains.

Yes, there is often a misunderstanding here. I can create 2D pop for smaller Bayer images, just by applying some USM before downscaling. Higher accutance creates 3D pop.

I think that the Foveon image only has an advantage here if you look at 100% or maybe 50%.

Which, of course, makes the issue somewhat moot as you generally can have more pixels for Bayer cameras.
