food for thought.

I was watching the australian open just now with the roof open and noticed that the broadcast cameras could expose the players perfect but you could barely see the lines men standing behind them in the shade. I thought wow these very expensive tv cameras are no better than any point and shoot for shadow reproduction. So i walked outside and looked across the road at a house with verandas around it and my eyes could clearly see the shadow detail as well as my bright white caravan and grass. the experiment wasnt over yet so i grabbed my em12 shot an image of the house across the road and it was also very difficult to pull the shadow detail out that my eyes could see. This is becoming an interesting observation now so i looked up the cameras and lens the olympics are going to use and just the lens on those cameras cost $223,000 and the sensor behind them is just 11mm across the diagonal wow thats much smaller than my m43 sensor. so with all the money in the world are we ever going to see the actual scene our eyes see ? i did read that some cameras shoot with dual sensors 1 set at a different exposure than the other to capture more detail when in edit process, but it looks like it cant be done streaming live yet and probably never will.
