Konica Minolta calls it a day

  1. He's right, anyway, whether or not he's sure -- because he's talking
    about bits *on the CD* rather than bits *in the files*. Many bits on
    the CD have to get corrupted before you get a one-bit error reading
    back any of the files.

    You're quite right that one bit errors can cause severe trouble in
    compressed files (jpeg, too).

    False. They released lenses, bodies and scanners in the last year.

    Old design in a new mount isn't a new lens.
    Nothing "new" about this either.

    And Tamron lenses with Konica Minolta printed on them don't count.

    Data CD/DVD are pretty robust. Firstly, the channel data are interleaved,
    which effectively means that each block of data is scattered over the
    disk. Next there are two levels of error correction, the first does
    error detection (and single bit correction? can't remember), and the
    outer level does the main correction. Audio CD doesn't have the 2nd
    level of correction.

    You can protect yourself against corrupted data in the files as well,
    by creating parity data with an application like par2 before you burn
    to CD or DVD.

    My point: Sony is notorious for making many of the same blunders.

    You can add MicroMV and SuperAudio CD and shortly Blu-Ray BD-ROM.
