Quotes from digital giants (#3/4)

  1. "The more I learned about human vision, the more it was clear that what
    these mosaic sensors were doing was introducing artifacts into the image. It
    was one of those things that becomes so massively annoying that after a
    while you think you ought to go do something about it. It was clear that the
    way image sensors worked was brain-dead. I talked to a lot of people, and
    nobody got it. So I finally said: 'That's not a problem. That's an
    opportunity.'"

    -- quote from Dr. Caver Mead, Founder, Foveon Inc.

    -- quote from Bill Gates, wishes he was Founder, Foveon Inc.

    but we're going to try ignoring pseudo science evangelist troll George Preddy,
    right?

    I take it that this is the Bill Gates of Micro$oft fame,
    producers of Windoze, the worlds most overpriced bug
    ridden software.

    Some endorsement!

    Thanks for providing plenty of laughs over the past
    few months George.

    In message <brsa6i$5pt$>,
    Sounds like he assumed that only horrible CFA demosaicing algorithms
    would be used, like averaging the missing data with simple arithmetic.
    A good algorithm should treat chroma and luminance separately, except
    for getting clues from eachother, and then converting back to RGB for
    editing and display.

  5. I think that is fair to say. Since the concept of demosaicing is itself
    optically horrible.
