love the iconic TT please post a few pics, sounds like you have a really great vantage point!

I use DxO as my primary software for RAW. The PRIME noise reduction is incredible, virtually eliminating noise without loss of resolution. Further processing and sharpening are done in Photoshop as it has some nice tweaks and its "layers" is very useful.
Sorrento Harbour. We had a dinner one evening at a restaurant overlooking this, I could barely look at what I was eating given the view I had

Marina Piccolo on Capri. Sat on the beach for an hour waiting for our boat to pick us up (wishing I had gone for a swim now looking at that picture! Would love to go back to Capri and spend more than a day there. Absolutely stunning island. Opted not to go into the Blue Grotto, from pictures on Flickr it is something I won't skip on next time I am there!

Dear friend procentje20
Wow " Their first reaction. "The volunteers are out of focus" "----I ( as Photographer) love your photo, that show the main subject is sharp in focus, and most all of the volunteers are good blur.
BIG BUT = As the " the work of volunteers at a triathlon in my home town. " = 99% of the VOLUNTEERS are Volunteers, Many of them Big / High position in their business in your Home town, And They working hard with out pay, And The Most important thing in their lifes are have the good Photos ( OF THEM) in the Publish/ Magazine/ Pamplets--To show off that " Here are ME, , who working hard , to make this event Success---MOST OF THEM do not care , who are the winners---At all.
YES, I have learn from more than 10 race like this-----The first one try to do same thing that you did, AS THE REAL PHOTOGRAPHER, not point and shoot to get every thing sharp in focus, And I Miss alot of the Volunteers/ Staffs's Photos---Just Pin point to the Public Racers.----YES, I AM WRONG.
Yes, I ask the Boss( Of the Race) , why They do not like my " PHOTOGRAPH'S IDEA Photos ", And He explain to me like I tell you.= The Most important Photos = The Photos of their staffs and The Volunteers, Including another Volunteer Photographer too.---If No their Photos on the Book/ Publish or Pamplets after the end of Race---Most of them will not come to help in another race.---YES, Most important Pictures = BEFORE THE RACE/ Preparation, and Clean up job, by Volunteers. To record the Photos that they can use as the Volunteer project, Not The NO NAME WINNERS, who just one time race.
Yes, After the first Race/ Volunteer----I know , who I will shoot the most---The Boss and all / Yes, All of the Volunteers.
Sounds to me like a mode in which the camera determines the subject near and far distance and sets aperture to ensure all subjects are in focus.
take for example a shot of a group of people. face detection could be used to determine the distance to the subject closest to the camera and the suject farthest from the camera, then select the aperture that mathmatically satisfies the DOF with that lens.
Sounds like a cool feature for consumer level cameras or even for shooting video if it was dynamic enough to adapt to the changing environment in real time.
My original EOS650 had that.
Why do the etchings always have to go in the same direction?
I guess it's how are they cut out? what do they use, a saw
Well, there is no specific reason why they couldn't etch some additional sensors in the perpendicular direction, but it would be costly. The way sensor fabrication works is by etching the silicon with extreme UV light via a template. The template is oriented in a single direction. The wafer is moved underneath the light beam so that multiple sensors can be etched. Etching of a single sensor is a multi-step process, with various steps involving masking, etching, dissolution of masks, more etching, doping and layering of new materials, masking, etching, etc. This stuff has to be precise to the level of a few nanometers at most, so it is entirely automated. Rotating the wafer to etch additional sensors in a different direction introduces a source of error that could hurt yield.
Surface area of FF => 864mm^2
If they can only get 20 FF sensors out of that, they have about 58% losses.
This is an 8 year old white paper and nobody mentioned these mistakes before?
That's very interesting if indeed that does translate to about 58% full frame sensor losses per wafer, even if it was 8 years ago.
I made a mistake (maybe Canon has a job offer ;-)), corrected it in my last post. It should be
Surface area of FF => 864mm^2
If they can only get 20 FF sensors out of that, they have about 47% losses.
It isn't exactly 47% loss. It's 64% of the area is actually used to print FF sensors. If this diagram is any indication, then they actually ETCH exactly 24FF, or 80APSC on a single 200mm wafer:
The actual losses would be out these numbers...so accounting for defects and whatnot, actual FF yield would have to be less than 24, and actual APS-C yield would have to be less than 80. Assuming they actually get 20 FF out of 24, the loss is 16.7%.
That assumes that the article was clear about the size of wafer used to produce APS-C sensors...which it is not. Since a 300mm wafer can handle about 212 APS-C sensors, and since the article states that around 200 APS-C sensors are made from each wafer, it makes sense that Canon is manufacturing APS-C sensors on 300mm wafers, rather than 200mm wafers. Either way, they clearly have a higher yield off smaller sensors.
Reading many posts here I think this forum should be really renamed in canonbashers.com
Forget about those bulky mirrorless things, that's only intermediate technology 2.0 (with loud bangin' mechanical shutters, how primitive) after DSLRs. My personal prospect for the future of digital photography and videography is eye-implant surgery. Since more and more male hipster google glass wearers are beaten up by women, as happened recently in Frisco, the technology has to be hidden right in the eyes. I can imagine a mesh like retina implant that uses the space between the photoreceptor cells. Micromike implants in the ears. Wireless readout of data for sharing, this technology will of course include an in-eye 3D-projection of pictures and videos on demand. Telephoto simply by using binoculars.
So, how about a new Eyeos implant camera line, Canon? C'mon dumb Google...
