So finally there it is.....

As you all know I am in favor for aps-h sized sensor in a camera and Pentax should have done it years ago. Many people said here......That is deed and no one makes aps-h. My answer always was to just order it as a special product, but even then I was called a fooi.


Canon comes with an aps-h sensor.......

A little bit to much pixels for me, but at least it's out there.....

I don't think we will ever see this in k-mount.


Did you expected anything else reading the title?

Well, one good wide-angle prime, and you never need zoom again!

Since this has nothing to do with full frame, I've moved it.

Also this is not a DSLR sensor by any stretch of the imagination. It does 5fps at high bitcount. The point is for surveillance and similar reasons as far as the article seemed to indicate. Imagine diffraction on this bad boy. Wide open would already be an issue...

Neither of those appears to use the 250MP sensor. One is 35MP and the other is 120MP but that is a very interesting article. The 120MP camera plans include 3d images that you can "feel" - sounds rather interesting but also maybe a bit of a look farther into the future than we realize.

Assume it is using the same technology under development. That amount of pixels in a FF is a lot of detail. Interesting to see what this brings for dynamic range which is still a major issue.

I don't see what benefits are specific to APS-H. In my opinion, there are at least two advantages in have a square or nearly square form factor for a sensor: 1) lower cost of the sensor 2) better use of the circular image from the lenses. A 24mmx32mm sensor could have be done at a lower cost than 24x36, thanks to higher unit count per silicon wafer (circular).

A year or two ago, I saw a post demonstrating a 200MP Canon sensor with incredible low light capability. The images were shot under moonlight and the look of the images felt like there was full sun outside. I was wondering what happened to that sensor and technology. I guess one of these days Canon is gonna come out with a killer camera incorporating this new sensor technology. They have to or Sony is going to put them out of business!

When I read about this sensor recently (I don't remember where -- it wasn't DPR) I immediately thought "somebody should tell Ron Hendriks!"

I needn't have worried.

Absolutely not, Ron! You know that a prophet is without honour in his own Forum/country, don't you?
