    funny.

    I've shot, and looked,
    at a lot of chromes, from 35mm to 8x10.

    after looking through a number of those pictures,
    you start to realize that the color rendition is off,
    whether done by sdx owners, or by the sensor.

    Canon, nikon, S2,
    all render colors more realistically.

    foveon:
    sort of an off brand of digital film,
    that just does not reach the mark.

    not to worry,
    yugos and kias sold too.

    In message <bu6g81$ea155$-berlin.de>,
    I think that there are basically two draws to the SD9 cameras. One is
    the hype of the sensor, the theoretical promise of better color through
    3x as many samples per pixel. The other is the false sharpness of the
    images. The files themselves are sharp, but they are not sharp with
    real, accurately-placed detail. People get very used to seeing sharp
    GUI elements on their computers, and computer-generated graphics where a
    white line can run right next to a black line. Then, they see digital
    images and wonder why they can't be the same way on the monitor. Along
    comes an SD9 image, with salt pixels right next to pepper pixels, they
    get a sparkle in their eye. The perceptive ones catch on eventually
    that the detail is the detail of the medium, not of the image. The
    duller ones have brains that can't see that the detail is false, and
    continue to worship the pixellation machine.

  4. ....for less than a cheap plastic 6MP DLSR.
    It's obvious that blurry interpolated images are for you.

  5. And its obvious that looking at pictures on your monitor is for you.

    them.
