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

If you're one of the people who's preordered a Blackmagic Cinema Camera, unless you're very lucky, you will probably have noticed that you don't actually have one yet. RedShark, in common with the rest of the world’s media, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of a camera to put through its paces.

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

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?

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
