Re: New Foveon camera...what can we expect

I have no idea what's realistic to expect. What I would love to see is truly usuable color range increased to ISO 1600. Meaning getting current ISO 100 level quality at up to ISO 800 and current ISO 400 quality at up to ISO 1600. That would be amazing. Better performance in the shadows, improved dynamic range and, as usual: speed, speed, speed.

Overall daylight results have to outshine the FP of course, otherwise what's the point. Which should not be that hard. FP daylight pictures I have seen so far look pretty ok for Bayer but they are very much not Foveon, especially looking at hair/fur and foliage.
