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.

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

Bryce Bayer's incredible foresight

Published in Technology

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
