Great info link, Peter. Thanks!

The sample images on the Foveon site are incredibly rich in color. And the comparison between images from a standard digital camera and one with a Foveon chip are night and day in quality. Maybe a bit too night and day, really. I wish they'd let us know what "standard" digital camera they used for the comparison test. I'd have to argue that there are other cameras out there that don't have Foveon chips that produce a much higher quality than the samples they've posted. The Canon EOS 1D, for instance.

Still...considering it's good for both photography and videography, and has that color and clarity is pretty darn interesting.

well on that subject, i think video may "excell" film one day,
it may not be HD but some sort of other medium we may not know about yet,
like John said. Im thinking it may just be a straight to digital format maybe with a hard drive or something, rather than a "tape" of some sort.

Im waiting for an HD 24p prosumer handheld, that will be nice!
