This could change the world

Scientist Design a Multispectral Imaging System Capable of Obtaining 12x more information than the Human Eye

Wonder how long it will take a smart camera maker to get these on the market?

Full colour information from a smaller sensor chip - let's hope the end of the cult of overused excessively small DoF is in sight. :-)

I disagree -- I'm a whore for more shallow DoF.

I agree, I'm fed up with the world looking as if nothing is more than 3" thick.

Re: This could change the world

I also think SDOF is great, if tastefully used....

12X More Info than the human eye can process?

I'm no physicist, but my impulsive response is: if the human eye can't see/recognize all that extra detail, would the use of these new sensors be restricted to specific security-related applications, such as those mentioned in the article? Even if displays/monitors were capable of reproducing the extra detail, would viewers "see" it?

In post, with super highres footage (from those sensors) you'll have more leverage to push in, pan across, and tweak it beyond any regular HD footage -- no matter if its final destination is only 1080p.

The real benefit here is to gather all the needed information in regards to luminance and color with a single pixel instead of how we do it now via groups of pixels.

Re: This could change the world

The Foveon sensor chip uses a similar scheme, and whilst delivering stunning optical clarity off the chip, it has some practical use limitations.
