  6. THe problem is, the Foveon design requires three times as many sensors
    to make one pixel. Thus, you have 10M photo sensors covering only 3.3 M
    pixels.

    but it certainly makes the faded colors of the sigma look poor.
    naturally, they are poor.

    Man, what an ugly, low-resolution, low-contrast photo. Have you *ever*
    taken a photo that's actually worth looking at?
    And how come you shot jujubes instead of jelly beans? - Too scared that
    your SD9 shot would look crap if you made it too similar to the 10D
    image? Or are you so blind that you thought that they /were/ jelly
    beans?

    And when are you going to post a high-ISO SD9 night shot, seeing as you
    claim that the SD9 is less noisy than a 10D?

    Only in the sense that the SD9 isn't even in the race.

  10. Its ok, but has maybe 25% the optical resolution. The beans are really
    fuzzy sts.
    Your beans are fuzzy. Especially the red ones.

  12. The true problem is not using sensors to make a pixel.

    Yes dear George, It's bloody horrible crap. And a glance at the EXIF
    explains why.
    (In order to show a horrible picture Georgy Boy has to use an SD9, but he
    lies and say it was taken with a Canon.)

    The "original" on pbase is upsized to 3024*2016, so he softened it as
    well as mis-labelled it. The "original" also has heavy JPEG
    artifacting.

    Hi George,
    Every time but one that I look at a picture you post it is very soft and
    you have an excuse for it.
    It that because of the camera or the photographer?
    Thanks

    Kibo informs me that stated that:
    At least that's a reasonable facsimile of the SD9s aliasing.

    How so? Not even the original SD9 image had aliasing; the focus was too
    soft for aliasing.

    Kibo informs me that stated that:
    Oh, I just mean of SD9 shots in general, rather than Preddy's
    incompetant photos in particular.
