I had an uber cool post somewhere here.... I've lost it. Darn tablets.... Need to fix my PC. :-(
Well never mind...
Q: What are the major growth areas in the image sensor business in 2014/5?An interview with the vice president of Aptina
A: Along with general market growth in the volume segments, there is a trend towards physically larger sensors to improve all around performance. While the pixel-count war is not dead, the top mobile OEMS have seen the light. Smaller pixels matter, but are being seen as enablers for unique features rather than just a way to use more power and memory, while larger pixels are getting the credit they deserve for image quality.
NIKON and CANON are still quite quiet about it..... And NIKON either just broke with SONY... and SONY is not sharing any food... I mean MF SENSOR with NIKON.... or we are awaiting the big bang there....
As for CANON: I say they are not STUPID they just need time to prepare a few descent L glasses for MF.
What does it has to do with this topic: Nothing and everything.
Nothing - I am talking about tech and about no market shares...
Everything - the trend setter gets the market pie. And the one is: PENTAX! MF with ISO of 200K. Not a bad idea.
haven't tested that awesome SONY MF CMOS... so we are quite away from understanding both its market and technology potential.
As for statistics.... WHY Amazon?!?!? I always have imagined you as prosumer. How many times have you bought a body there admit it?
Like 75% of this post's readers aren't B&H clients.... Come on! You don't have enough info to discuss it here.
Even e-bay stats might give you better understanding for the market leaders than Amazon.
And that is for the brave users.
ON the other hand are people like me who don't like their DSRL bodies without warranty.
