So, let's fast forward 10+ years to where we have achieved the perfect sensor. It can do the following:
-Record nearly infinite numbers of photons and scale to whatever pixels you want
-Expose and record every detail in any light over 0.01 LUX
-Record in 256-bits with DR surpassing anything our own eyes can even see
-Correct any and all optical defects in any and all lenses
So...if I had this sensor, you know what I would be?
Why? Because photos would look just like real life and be limited only by our own eyes.
Photos are an interpretation of reality, not reality. Light and shadows give photos depth and meaning, which is why so many HDR photos are just dull and flat. The limitations of film are why so many film photos are better than most digital photos in all regards other than sharpness.
The unconstrained mind is not creative.
(these are my Deep Thoughts for the week)
Dear Friend Mr. Mackguyver.From Your great Imaginative words " So, let's fast forward 10+ years to where we have achieved the perfect sensor. It ( I ) can do the following:"
Yes, Next 10 Years , I will be 75 Years Old man with Old Heart
1) I must have 2 Transplant of New Young Eyes to see the Perfected Photos which created by the Perfected Sensor.
2) I must have a new Heart Transplant for long photographic trip with the new camera with New Perfected Sensor---With out died because of heart attack---For Long Walk and -----
3) I might require a Young, Strong and Beautiful Wife to help me carry the heavy weight Lenses---No , New DSLR Canon EOS-M MK VI are so small like the Match Box---I do not worry about Weigh of Camera Any more.
4) my NEW WHEELCHAIR ( When I am 75) can go any where and fly like hovercraft.
BTW, I forget the last requirement
5) one of my body part must need a new transplant too---Because of new Young, Strong and beautiful wife---Ha, Ha, Ha---My Two legs, Which I need to walk fast , to catch up with her walking speed.----NO, I not Dirty old man, But Still sexy Old Man.
Just want to have FUN, and Talk with you, Sir.
