  • I meant to say editing in 16k, which is double the resolution of 4k. 8k is not double the resolution of 4k. See this webpage which explains it at #2. In order to yield twice larger prints at the ...
  • You forget basic math that you overlooked something important. The grid array of pixels is not a two dimensional matrix. It is a three dimensional matrix including color bit depth. Seriously, find ...
  • As you ramp up the number of pixels, the processing requirements go up exponentially. 100 megapixels requires exponentially more processing power than 50. You can see this in file sizes in any ...
  • Sigma CEO said he is not interested in all the frills. You won't see those addons. Wi-fi GPS. Forget it. Only things that directly impact image quality is he interested in.
  • Anytime soon is abstract. 2-5 years? It's coming by 2020 or sooner. Camera is ready. Lenses are not. https://petapixel.com/2019/01/14/100mp-and-ibis-coming-to-a-canon-eos-r-camera-report/
  • With 75 megapixel and 120 megapixel Canon cameras along the way, it probably won't outdo those, especially if they use pixel shift. But the color clarity should be better. And I expect it will ...
  • The Merrill sensor had a lot of problems, see other posts. It had to have too much cleanup in SPP making the photos look grungy and too much battery drain. Quattro was a much better more elegant ...
  • On a crappy run of the mill monitor I see no difference. Nothing. On a good 4k monitor, I see a difference. The Fuji is sharper, not a huge amount, but it's there. Also less ugly noise. Overall,...

  • They're improving from a few years ago. The image quality is getting better, and with computational image processing, it may be able to squeeze more quality from those 32 megapixels. I think the...

  • In the second photo, I think that the exposure is a little off compared to the OMD. I see more of the stray pulled out strands of cloth fiber in the OMD, but the weave pattern is less hazy in the ...
  • Not really. The spectral response of the foveon chip is different than a pixel shifted image.
  • How are you scanning the slides? If they are kodachromes, there's a lot more quality in them that a home scanner would lead you to believe.

  • All hard disks will fail. Optical media will suffer from bit rot. It already is, after having been burned and sitting on a shelf. There are few options that can match the durability of film. The...

  • Replied in Fuji S5 Pro
    I'd say 7 and 8 are the most important to get that "timeless non-harsh" look I was talking about. Also, I dispute that the color from digital is more accurate. I have found the opposite is true if ...
  • Replied in Fuji S5 Pro
    Digital is too contrasty and the pixels too bright. A lot of images look "hyper". In contrast, film has a relaxed gentle, non-harsh look to them. The details are finer with lower contrast.
  • I opened that file and set the noise reduction to nil, reset the settings back to default. sharpness was set to -.8 or something. Surprise. The detail came back. If you are going to turn down the ...
  • Each layer of the Quattro sensor captures more than its own color. In fact there are graphics to illustrate this. The wavelengths that fall on the different layers include three colors in varying ...
  • I remember reading a direct quote from the CEO of Sigma which said, he isn't interested in more and more pixels, but improving the quality of the pixels. There is a phone that captures 48 ...
  • Ding Ding Ding ding ding. We have a winner!!!!!! Pixel peeping on monitors is dumb. Comparing photos from cameras on monitors is dumb. Why? Because you are handicapping the data in those photos. ...
  • There were many reasons to go with the Quattro design. The old sensors had numerous problems and would not scale up. There was nothing substandard with the Quattro design. It was ingenious if you ...
