  • Yes, 11 years, the first few doing film analysis and tech support. A great company. So many patents still being explored today (such as Retinex and further polarization). This type of film is ...
  • By static, it means that the image once drawn on screen can have a difference from the brightest points to the darkest at 100,000:1, which is wonderful. The screen remains statically lit, and 'on'. ...
  • My current cell has 4 cameras, 3 at the front: 1 with a monochrome sensor at 20 MP, another 40 MP wide focal length, and a 20 MP tele with OIS, and the selfie cam on the other side. It uses the ...
  • Have you got a link to the video? I'm not familiar with Instax, but painfully familiar with every single Polaroid format and type of film, from radiographic to Super 8, to 20x24", and even one of ...
  • Is that static contrast, or 'dynamic'? If it's not dynamic, that's pretty nice. Otherwise, I find dynamic contrast about as useful a spec as maximum interpolated resolution. BTW I'm using a ...
  • Complicating your options: in your searches, you could possibly include the slightly older 18-50 EX Fixed 2.8 DC Macro. It's great for anti CA from those contra-jour backlit images, but you must ...
  • Thank you Ted. Apologies for my tardiness - stuck on a costly project milestone coming up, and I'm responsible. I'm wondering (out loud) what sort of KPI would be a good test of camera's abilities ...
  • What a great way to quantify the colour variance. I probably would have cropped and shown unique colour count in Irfanview, which misses the relativity between hues. I think what makes this sample ...
  • The first one (flower) has such incredibly nuanced colour. Beautiful.
  • Thanks. I think I answered my own questions, but instead of erasing the post, thought I'd leave it in case anyone else had the same questions. Looks great except it might not be durable enough ...
  • PrebenR wrote: "...Would be nice if one could get ISO 50 back." I say that to myself all the time. Now the SD1M is a lot crunchier than the SD14, but it needed ISO50 more too. The FF-L  will be ...
  • I see on the SD1M & SF1m (?) 7.4V (top) model that it has a female tripod shoe, for mounting the adaptor on a tripod. Do you know if: 1) the other side of the adaptor has the opposite/male mount to ...
  • Fascinating read, great deductive work, and informative for us all. Now I'm paranoid about the same artefact!
  • My password reset isn't working... I guess I haven't been online there for about a decade. 🤔 There was someone that did a fair bit of astrophotography there that also worked with an early Foveon, ...
  • Only have the 2X (I know, I know, but I tried it before buying and was impressed). Mainly used it with the 50-150 EXII DC 2.8 HSM APO (non OS), but also borrowed a longer EX fixed tele to use with ...
  • I didn't see much difference with SPP661, but it felt a little better. However, to redefine what you consider the limits of potential GPU acceleration in a raw developer, try the newer Affinity ...
  • Yes, you're completely right with what he said. I'm trying to read between the lines, because even though there's no 'complete' silicon change, he refers several times to colour separation efforts ...
  • Agree with your response on all points, and wanted to emphasize what amazing images the SD14 could take. I haven't gotten rid of mine, although it's resolution is now so low that the full frame ...
  • Excellent observation: I didn't pay that tack in positioning enough attention until you pointed it out. Previously they did the marketing-level hyperbole about superior colour right up front, but ...
  • I have had wonderful success with long Foveon exposures that have some artificial ambient light (street lighting of various kinds and spectra). I will say that my SD14 and SD1M both take dark ...
