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?

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?

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

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

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

The art of Colour Rendering

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

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

Imagine Google Earth or Google Maps represented not as a still image, but as a full-motion video, showing the positions of cars, people and even birds in real time
