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.
Why would you use CCD when CMOS is newer and cheaper?
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
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
Phil Rhodes explains why luminance is so important within photography
