Quotes from digital giants (#5)

  1. "I know of one bayer pattern reconstruction algorithm from a well known
    digital camera company that requires 120 multiplications to calculate
    a single pixel value! Because of all the complex guesswork associated with
    making up 2/3 of the color values for each output pixel. The 3x3 color
    matrix operation [of the Foveon Pro 10M] which converts sensed
    color to output color requires 9 multiplications, and is required for any
    type of sensor. "

    foveon cheep.

    I'm one of the ones who finds the whole thing amusing---it's like take
    a random sample and see if George has manged to say something even
    stupider than previously. So far, he succeeds
