Imagine Google Earth or Google Maps represented not as a still image, but as a full-motion video, showing the positions of cars, people and even birds in real time

Making sense of Sensors - part 2

Published in Technology & Computing

As we saw in my previous article on sensor technology, we can now build sensors with enormous numbers attached to them - if not trivially, at least reliably. Given that current 4K sensors are more than adequate to replace 35mm film in terms of sheer resolution, we need to be careful about turning this into a numbers game.

Replay - The best of 2012: 8 bit or 10 bit?

Published in Technology & Computing

In case you missed first time around, here's one of the best articles from 2012, by Phil Rhodes: 8 bit or 10 bit? The truth may surprise you!

Last time, we discussed some of the technical concerns of lens selection and the issues of compatibility with sensors of various configurations and sizes. In this part, we'll look at the effects sensor size has on photography and the engineering compromises behind lenses and sensors

When cameras are Good Enough

Published in Technology & Computing

Have cameras reached the point where we need to be looking beyond resolution to judge their film-making abilities?

Why would you use CCD when CMOS is newer and cheaper?

What if the RED Dragon was a still camera?

Published in Technology & Computing

 

The technology in video and still cameras is converging, as still sensors become capable of video at very high resolutions. But why to some cameras cost 20 times more than others?

How to understand Dynamic Range

Published in Technology & Computing

Camera performance is now measured as much in terms of Dynamic Range as Resolution. Phil Rhodes explains this essential aspect of camera technology
