New NIKON DSLR sensor needs to fall within these parameters,…logically

  1. Silicon has nothing to do with efficiency, heat decipation has. Efficiency is at the premature as far as sensor go, you have still new BSI sensor and RGBW to come yet, the issue is not sensitivity but heat decipation and noise which is here involved.There is nothing wrong with silicon btw. As far as ISO concern (applied gain) at higher dB amplification you get different signal to noise ratio (read as more noise) where heat starting to be an issue.There is no such a sensor coming from Nikon , they do not make any sensor….you mean Sony, right.

  2. Ken, thanks for the awesome video!

    The question is when the small companies such as Fuji will lay their hands on a RGBW DX sensor which probably doesn't exist yet.

    P.S. I skipped XT2 because it did not impress me with the low light performance (it is basically the same as XT1). I am waiting for low light performance and dynamic range boost more than for AF speed.

    So I am currently waiting for XT3…

  3. Ken where will the high detail of the high MP sensors go? What will Nikon have to offer to those photographers interested in High detail , (like big prints etc). What and where will the trade off be in, order to get a new FX camera with say 48MP?? And since a part of the new sensor will be occupied by a number of these white photosites, what will the color reproduction of the new sensor be like? Will the color quality of the file be worse? To be honest with you I dont believe Nikon will replace the D810 with anything less than 48 MP. Maybe the d750 and the D610 but the D810 ? Nope nope nope nope….

  4. Once Sony and Nikon hit the market with these sensors its likely to impact Canon in a big way. Unless Canon has something special up its sleeve it's sensor tech is going to feel even further behind. In fact dont be surprised if Canon start to outsource their sensors from Sony as well!

  5. is it true that, RGBW sensors produce less color information than regular sensors, they are catered toward high ISO performance as you say, those W photosites that only capture luminance information, as many of those are present, less in total are for capturing color, and it confirms the trends in the last 10 years about lenses more designed toward sharpness than color and tonal richness, do you think that color is dead, and do you think that if ou put a very good Zeiss lens in front of an RGBW sensor, will it kill the Zeiss tonal richness magic ?

  6. Does 28mp on the new camera mean the same thing resolution wise as 28mp on an older sensor because the new sensor requires 4 pixels to create a single point of light on the image whereas conventional sensors only require 3 pixels, so my thinking is that the new sensor generates less image resolution than regular sensors because its 28mp/4 worth of image resolution instead of 28mp/3?

  7. As for the d760, time will tell but i hope to h3ll that it will be a full range capable camera as niche cameras are far from useful in real life.

    Also why don't more cameras save as DNG, or a jpeg similar web friendly format PNG? Tiff is a bit slow to encode but it's more universal for processing.

  8. I am waiting for mid year 100th year Anniv Nikon FF Mirrorless body release to decide with your call on the above if I go all Nikon or all Fuji. If it does not come, may well be bye bye Nikon for me…been with them since the F, yes the FIRST one, so could be a sad farewell .
