  • Any writing to the card (including deleting) causes degradation. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_memory#Memory_wear
  • I've not yet seen anyone yet mention the reason why someone would want to use colored lens filters on a digital camera: to balance exposure among the three color channels. Remember that pixels are ...

    Well, yes, if you want to clear the card, formatting is definitely the way to go.
  • Replied in Stupid
    I delete images all the time and have never had an issue with a scrambled FAT table. I think that particular issue is overblown.
  • Actually, that's not true, and the closer the focusing distance, the less true it is. Shooting macro at 1:1 will result in a loss of 2 stops of light.
  • Is Doug Peterson in the CFA industry, or does he just know what Phase One told him? "Weak" does not necessarily mean bad. Did you not read his quote above? He says there's a balancing act going on. ...
  • No, that's just showing how much overlap there is. Overlap and translucency are not the same thing. Think about it for a second. From The Suede: https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1196797/1 "Y ...
  • What does that have to do with a CFA being weaker or not? What do you even mean by "weaker?" More transparent? Because that won't show based on the SMI. No you did not. You've said it a lot, but ...
  • Who said the 5d Mark II had a weaker CFA? And where do you get that it was due to the jump from 12MP to 21MP? Source, please. I've read the whole thread. Please show me where he suggested that the ...
  • I thought your view was that CFAs were made weaker to boost ISO scores? The Suede is clearly stating that the CFA of the 5D2 was chosen for pleasing skin tones in a variety of lighting situations ...
  • Not sure what you consider technobabble, but here are a few posts on DPReview regarding the problem (even if you want to take the calculations with a grain of salt, the basic idea is sound; all ...
  • Where did he say that CMOS allows more manipulation of color signals? And why did you leave out his next response: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53763266 "The problem with more transparent ...
  • The amplifiers are there simply to better record "what it saw," not for manipulation of the data. One downside to an amplifier per pixel is that takes up some of the space on the pixel ...
  • If CCD and CMOS sensors can see color, why would a color filter array in front be necessary?
  • CCDs require a substantial amount of real estate for global shutters, as well. Why do you think so few photographic cameras with CCDs have had global shutters? See CCD architectures in the Wikipedi ...
  • Not every CCD sensor has a global shutter, either (though they are certainly more common in CCDs at this point).
  • Absolutely ridiculous. Just shoot at a higher ISO if you want reduced dynamic range. Do you also think recording 24-bit rather than 16-bit audio makes it worse, too, when the destination format is ...
  • CMOS can do global shutter as well.
  • Here are a couple of posts of his on the CCD vs CMOS matter from that forum a few years back: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60395732 https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54028441
  • The fact that the sensor is a CCD has nothing to do with the colors. It's a combination of the color filter array and the processing. Personally, I see nothing really special about the color in the ...
