Just hoping the new R5 arrives before Harry destroys the Universe.
He can't. That would destroy his universe...
Now I know you're not only full of it, but you know you're full of it.
One of the down sides of Coronavirus is that it leaves people with waaaaay too much time on their hands (and their minds).---
Are you sure?
I'm quite sure that what spews forth here is neither ferd scheisse nor lemon grass tea but rather pure acid on the finances of the many companies mentioned previously. I have the secrets of the Universe at my fingertips! I also have a set of BEAUTIFUL large sensor super-smartphones sitting on a table behind me and a SWEEEEEEET 50.3 megapixel MF global shutter video/stills camera that will make even Arri blush green with envy!
When that bitten-fruit company FINALLY gets back into their currently furloughed glass-walled edifice to a donut, I think more than a few of the companies pontificating over my sly musings will suddenly find themselves shaking with rage if not outright financial fear at what is coming out of those haloed glassy halls built to praise and worship all that is of rounded metal corners!
These NEW systems are your gateways and stairways to mobile Medium Format Global Shutter video production and still photography heaven.
Praise Be and Blessed Be The Fruit!
Nolite te bastardes carborundorum

We do satellite imaging ourselves and even 100+ megapixels is too small!
The head office lab up here in Vancouver, Canada got so fed up with Dalsa, Sony, Canon, On, etc not being able to produce to our specifications, that they bought out an entire CPU/RAM production plant and brought CMOS, GaN and GaAs manufacturing in-house with some of the largest single slice silicon substrate manufacturing systems in the world (i.e. over 400mm per side!).
The LARGEST single-slice CMOS imager we have built yet is 128k by 128k pixels (131,072 by 131,072 pixels!) at 64 bits per RGBA/YCbCrA pixel depth (about 17.18 Gigapixels at about 3 microns per photosite) which is installed on a super-high-flyer aerospace-imaging-specific SSTO platform. Works Great and we even built a 128k by 128k resolution 16-bits per channel RGB colour laser projector system to see the images!
SO LOTS of people want really high resolution and even 100 megapixel IS NOT ENOUGH resolution for many tasks!
AND for the kicker, we're doing RnD on 2 metre by 2 metre single silicon wafer production (2000mm by 2000mm with NO cracks, occlusions or other other imperfections -- Substrate is mounted to super-strong/super-stable with-same-thermal expansion rate ceramic base for support) so we can get 128k by 128k resolution at MUCH HIGHER dynamic range by having the photosites be a tad over 15 microns in size! That will be installed on MULTIPLE polar orbit and equatorial orbit ground-pointing AND deep space imaging satellites which we will be launching straight from OUR IN-HOUSE BUILT SSTO systems!
Now THAT is the coolest tech of all!
TRY AND BEAT THAT LMCO AND RAYTHEON !!!!!!
I'm sure, because you just made the mistake of trying to sound like you knew physics, to someone who actually knows some physics. It's babble, and I know it.
Please do let us know when your single stage to orbit craft is scheduled to fly, since that is an even more impressive feat than the large image sensor, and would be amazing to see.
It uses a breakthrough propulsion system similar to another series of aerospace craft made by Northrup and LMCO. It's been flying for quite some time now at FL3000 and above. These three craft have sometimes passed each other flying at the same time .......... !!! (far apart of course!)
I may be only a JAFO photographer, but I STILL GET MY WINGS !!!!
More BS. Something like that would be classified. You'd go to prison, unless your real name is Hillary Clinton.
I do shoot raw. In fact, I only shoot raw.
But I'm forced to pass files around in post (DXO photolab) to print as jpgs (whose quality isn't as good as I'd like) or tiffs (that bloat up the storage too much). When I make huge panoramas in Ptgui I can use psb format to pass them to Affinity Photo which handles the huge files. There may be better ways to do things with Adobe software, but when they forced everyone to pay high monthly fees for their Creative Cloud platform I decided it was time to wash my hands of them and seek other post software. That's just my decision, and I mean no disrespect for those still using it.
What I'd like is for the camera to take raws, and have all the post processing and uploading be in heif format. And if the camera does some special processing, like multi-picture blending together as a software way to do long exposure neutral density filtering, it could save a single heif file which could be in an even higher pixel bit-depth & more noise-reduced image than the raw format allows.
I might point out, that Affinity Photo handles RAW images too....you might experiment with bringing them in to AP RAW instead of DxO and that would keep your workflow a bit simpler?
Just a thought,
