Vintage lenses for large-sensor cameras - Part 1

Published in Production

Here's another chance to read this meticulously detailed feature, where Uli Plank shows us how to look for lenses up to 50 years old, and use them with our modern, large-sensor cameras.

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

The art of Colour Rendering

Published in Post & VFX

Human beings come in a variety of exciting colours. Rendering those colours in a pleasing way has been a goal of photography since before photography actually had colours, but it's always going to be an incredibly subjective issue

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.

We predict two camera trends for NAB 2015

Now is a good time to make a few tentative predictions about the year ahead, just before NAB comes along and proves me completely wrong

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have developed a new sensor technology based on Graphene, which is 1000 times more light sensitive than existing CMOS or CCD sensors
