    600mm f:8 Stigma mirror with a 3x Stigma teleconverter= 1,200mm f:16
    x1.7=2,040mm. Mounted on a cheap plastic tripod

  4. Right answer, wrong math.

    How about a total price, including the very cool tripod?

    A penny? I figured the clues were given with your obsession with
    shooting pennies.

    Yugo automobiles were similarly cheap.

  8. But they didn't outperform the competition by any measure.

    The answer is, it's about the same cost a low MP count, interpolated (yuck),
    Canon 10D body all by its lonesome.

    In message <bp24ep$aeu$>,
    Color is more accurate than the SD9, from what I've seen. The SD9 is
    supposed to be more accurate at the pixel level, in theory, but the
    filters used have an unnecessarily high Q, and not enough sensitivity to
    properly reconstruct color.

    THERE ARE NO DISTINCT-RGB SENSORS, PER SE, IN THE SD9.

  11. Color isn't set by the SD-9. Most reviews rate the SD-9 higher. even though
    it probably costs them money to say so. With the release of SPP2 it's
    higher still.
    Have you seen the SD-9 histogram?

    And have you notced anything interesting about SSP2? It processes RGB
    differently, it fixes some clipping issues and changes the default tone of
    yellows (as a minimum, I'm still playing with it). It also shows that the
    very overexposed, next to underexposed, highlight blooming phenomenom wasn't
    sensor charge leaking as many had thought, including me. It's fixed with
    SPP2. It'll be interesting to see the new night scenes.
