Hi, all! 

I just read an article last night about digital camera image sensors. It's really talking about sensors in digital video cameras, but I found it interesting, nonetheless. 

http://magazine.creativecow.net/article/the-truth-about-2k-4k-the-future-of-pixels

The points of interest for me were how companies like RED market their sensor's resolution as higher than companies like Panavision do, learning more about the physical layout of RGB photosites on a typical sensor, and the differences in business model that building equipment for rental rather than purchase affords Panavision.


It doesn't have so much to do with Photosynth, but is just of general interest to people interested in digital image quality, so I thought I'd post it here in the lounge.

Now that I'm started, I may as well make this a catch-all for any interesting articles on digital imaging.

I read a couple of articles today on composing tasteful HDR (high dynamic range) images that you may find interesting as well.

Here they are:

On the HDR topic, I know a Brazilian photographer who isn't very fond of HDR images, but suggests using a neutral density filter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutral_density_filter to achieve similar results. 

One of the previous articles on HDR says that an ND filter can't ever quite compete with the benefits of combining multiple exposures into one, but I thought I'd mention it for those of you who like to stick to physical tech.
