    CMOS Look, CCD Look in MF Sensors

    Hello again, sorry for leaving an ambiguous comment, and then not responding for a while. Yes, "fat pixels" mean large sensor combined with low pixel count, so the pixel diameter is relatively large, which gives more subtle gradations. "Fat CFA" on the other hand is, as in Doug's article, a...

    CMOS Look, CCD Look in MF Sensors

    I don't think the consumers are demanding the CCD look in CMOS sensor, which is likely why we don't have it already. Consumers are demanding high FPS, high ISO, high MP, Live View, and all sorts of other things, but very, very, very few people are really interested in subtle colour...

    CMOS Look, CCD Look in MF Sensors

    I think CMOS chips are simpler and cheaper to make, so I suppose they will win in the long run.

    CMOS Look, CCD Look in MF Sensors

    I would be surprised if there was a difference between CMOS and CCD which couldn't be equalised by a sensor manufacturer. I suppose that the CMOS advantage at high ISO is partly bought by fiddling with the CFA, just like Canon's colour have gotten thinner and thinner with the years, as they try...

    Show us your Tech Cam

    Is that an STC or a MAX? Sorry about the silly question, I don't know much about these cameras yet.

    Fun with MF images - ARCHIVED - FOR VIEWING ONLY

    Ah yes, I was there, June 2004, Eurographics, wasn't it? :) Please ignore the quality of the stitch, this was before my photographic reawakening and cheap, good stitching software.

    Fun with MF images - ARCHIVED - FOR VIEWING ONLY

    Same camera, but Schneider 40/3.5, same location (Sellin, Rügen, Germany), 0.4s @ f/5.7, ISO 100: I should probably spend a little more time matching white balance on these, since they were taken quite close to the same time, the second photo a little earlier.

    Fun with MF images - ARCHIVED - FOR VIEWING ONLY

    Sellin, Ostsee, Germany. Sinar Hy6, eMotion 75LV, Zeiss 80/2.8 @ 1/5s, f/5.7: I am finding this an interesting experience so far. The eMotion 75LV back delivers files which are very unlike my A7 files. The A7 files are good, but somehow feel blunt, and resistant to changes. I have to be...

    36 Megapixels vs 6×7 Velvia

    You can also stack film images, so that doesn't really get us any further.

    Heading to Alpa today

    Nice write-up, thanks!

    Fun with MF images - ARCHIVED - FOR VIEWING ONLY

    That it is crooked, or more likely, that it has its own address, but no apparent mailbox?

    Fun with MF images - ARCHIVED - FOR VIEWING ONLY

    Sinar Hy6, eMotion 75LV, Schneider 40/3.5 @ f/8, 29s, ISO 100. The Schneider doesn't have the same micro-contrast as Zeiss lenses, but it is sharp when stopped down a little! Long exposures isn't really the forté of this back, but with a touch of noise reduction, it does okay. Another one...

    Hasselblad Certified Pre-Owned Price Cut

    The deals are mostly on older, CCD-based cameras.
