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

Making sense of sensors: Part 1 of 2

Published in Technology & Computing

Film always used to be the main thing that determined how a photograph looked. Now, it's the sensor. So camera manufacturers have taken on a huge extra responsibility!

Bryce Bayer's incredible foresight

Published in Technology & Computing

Somehow, I managed to overlook the fact that last month saw the death of Bryce E. Bayer, the man who decided that the best way to make a single-chip colour imaging sensor was to silk-screen a pattern of coloured filters on the front

To mark the occasion of the new year, our editor has asked me to come up with some predictions for the coming twelve months

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?

This camera breaks the laws of physics

Published in Technology & Computing

Hot on the heels of Nokia's 808 PureView, a smartphone with an over-endowed 41 MegaPixel sensor that allows smooth, lossless digital zooming, comes the Sony NEX-EA50EH. It's definitely not a phone, but does share one fascinating feature in common

Phil Rhodes explains why luminance is so important within photography

If you use a professional digital camera, you can't go far without understanding the relationship between sensors, lenses and depth of field. It's slightly more complicated than you might have thought!. Phil Rhodes makes it understandable

Dramatic claims from RED: 21 stops from Dragon!

Published in Technology & Computing

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

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
