Sigma SD10 = 6.86MP for 2 color targets, 13.72MP for full color

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by George Preddy, May 22, 2004.

  1. That is about right for a monochrome test target. Foveon says this...

    "X3 privdes the equivalent resolution to an outstanding 6-14MP Bayer

    That is, 6MP for monochrome targets since Bayer sensors are only
    monochrome, and 14MP if color must be interpolated. Same thing Phil
    Askey says...

    "You can of course produce similar results from a Bayer sensor camera
    by downsampling an image by 50%, this is (approximately) the same as
    combining two green, one red and one blue pixel together. To achieve
    this and be left with an image of the same size as the SD10 you would
    need 4536 x 3024 (13.7 megapixel) input image."

    Foveon = 6.86MP Bayer (for 2 color B&W targets)
    Foveon = 13.72MP Bayer (for full color and grayscale targets)

    Kibo informs me that (George Preddy) stated
    Right again George. It's good to see that you finally are realising that
    you know nothing at all about digital imaging.

    We're still waiting to see those photos you lied about selling. Where
    are they George? You realise that the fact that you won't show them to
    us proves to us that they are completely imaginary, don't you?

  4. All quotes form dpreview, don't call Phil Askey names for agreeing with me.
    They'd have to call about 10,000 miles, but why not?

    Your IP address is This belongs to Time Warner cable

    with you being in Texas, rather than somewhere 10000 miles away.

    Phil Askey isnt you georgy boy , Go to the Conclusion, Last paragraph .
    The summary , the bottom line , the end result. Read george, and take
    time to comprehend , study . I did and its still Nikon or Canon. 6mp
    for me. The sd10 is "there" but no better. And soon there will be a
    new Rebel 7mp? 8mp? . The only thing wrong with Sigma is you. You
    only remember what you want to remember, give it a break.

    To those unfamiliar with George/Georgette Preddy, please ignore his
    postings. If you read other postings by him you will find that
    he, for some reason, has a fetish against Canon. He is also
    extraordinarily pro Sigma/Foveon.

  15. Either that or customizable proxy software to frustrate internet
    stalkers, like yourself .

    And if you are then someone might report you for spoofing a real ip address
    in a range that is in use somewhere.
    (not that you'd give a sh*t anyway) And just who is an internet stalker ?
    I'd say you are the stalker.

    He's bullshitting about that anyway. There's no way to post from Google
    from a spoofed IP address. It /is/ possible that he's using someone
    else's web-proxy, though. I'll have to do some checking & see if has
    permission to be doing that from that particular machine.

    If that's true then Road Runner has legal cause against you. But no one here
    believes you are smart enough to use proxies.

  20. I post from about 10 different IP numbers. Meep meep.
