Dramatic claims from RED: 21 stops from Dragon!

Published in Technology

RED and, say, Sony are diametrically different in so many ways, and perhaps no more so than in the way that the EPIC manufacturer absolutely loves to let information about new products seep from every pore

Most large-sensor cameras use a Bayer colour filter pattern to allow full colour images to be output - after "debayering". This entire process is now pretty routine but unfortunately what is also routine is the amount of light lost through the colour filter process. Less light means more noise, and noise is what ultimately limits the low-light capabilities all cameras

A Kickstarter-funded digital 16mm camera is one of 2012's most intriguing stories.  RedShark's reporter Peter Haas talks to Joe Rubinstein, co-founder of Digital Bolex

What do these dragon images mean?

Published in Technology

Over the weekend we brought you the first images that were from the new RED Dragon sensor. We thought they looked sensational, and said so, but before everyone (including us) gets carried away, it's worth injecting a note of caution into the frenzy that surrounds this new sensor

Sensors need better technology, not more resolution

Published in Technology

Recently I've been expressing the view that all cameras are pretty much the same, because they all use the similar technology (give or take) for their sensors. I don't mean to be unnecessarily cruel about the work of camera manufacturers – taking an electronic component such as an imaging sensor and making it into a usable tool is far from trivial. Still, the absolute performance of cameras is determined by what you can get off the lump of silicon behind the lens

What if the RED Dragon was a still camera?

Published in Technology

 

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?

Phil Rhodes explains why luminance is so important within photography

Panasonic's new 4K sensor: Camera coming soon?

Published in Technology

Just when it seemed Panasonic completely missed the 4K boat, the camera manufacturer shows up to dock with its very own 4K sensor. Could a camera be that far off?

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
