  • That's OK, it's a lot less serious to me than it is to you.

  • You could argue that, but it wouldn't be true. The non-linear relationship between sensor size and area is well known to anyone with a...

  • Multiple smaller sensors yielding the same total area would be cheaper than an equivalent larger sensor.

    And yes, several monochromatic sensors would have less chromatic abberations than a single...

  • Multiple smaller sensors yielding the same total area would be cheaper than an equivalent larger sensor. Sensor area vs cost has a near exponential relationship.

    And yes, several monochromatic...

  • More logical fallacies. Smaller sensors are cheaper to make than larger ones. This is camera economics 101. A monochromatic sensor with a dedicated lens (i.e. no 3CCD stuff) yields more resolution...

  • Sure I did. I'm not going to argue points I never made though, like the idea that I could "out invent" a camera manufacturer.

  • What a silly strawman.

  • Same reason DSLR makers have no selection of fast wide angle primes for APS-C or Canon/Nikon don't take mirrorless seriously. They can be very dumb/shortsighted.

  • The main advantage of such a setup would be as you mentioned- getting larger sensor area with a higher yield. It works for cell phones as they tend to have small sensors and cheap fixed lenses. A...

  • You would only need a beam splitter if you used one lens for all three sensors... a wrong assumption on your part. Little 1/2.3" sensors are small enough that for the field of view parallax issues...

  • I hope you have a decent screen at home. A 6.44" screen is crap compared to a 2160p monitor. So the big phone screen point is moot.... in the grand scheme of things even tablets are crap for...

  • I think Fuji may have pushed too far. Between the cost of their bodies and lenses, they don't offer much reason NOT to go FF. I think lenses in the vein of the Nikkor 35 1.8 AF-S are more what...

  • APS-C sensors of today have pretty much surpassed the last generation of full frame sensors (i.e. D7100 > D700). Any measure- QE, read noise, DR, color depth, whatever. 30dB S/N ISO is kind of a...

  • I still think an array of smaller sensors would work better. 4 1/2.3" sensors adds up to 1 1" sensor. Plus you would be able to get much more resolution and probably more light transmission by...

  • @Joe Ogiba what do a big screen and phone/data connectivity have to do with taking pictures? If we are talking serious photography I'd rather have something responsive with good controls that is...

  • @teddoman, the QX1 is basically the size of a NEX camera. @darngooddesign what QX1/lens combo are you fitting in your pocket? One of the bad E pancakes?

  • How is this any better than a regular smartphone and a Sony NEX camera?

  • So in other words, because you don't understand it you don't feel it will work in the way it's advertised lol. Maybe you should look up how it works before you deem it to be impossible (despite the...

  • So it doesnt work because you cant understand it Demosthenes? Lol
