    I agree, many people can resolve more than 100MP. What I question is whether or not one could actually discern a difference between a 128MP and 256MP display in any real world viewing environment.

    Display options these days range from phone screens to IMAX. What stays the same is us - the wetware. Assuming you want to keep the whole image in your visual field, there's limit to how close you...

    Oversampling is of particular importance with Bayer pattern sensors due to their design. The short version is that shooting 6K for 4K provides enough discrete values that a decent algorithm can...

    Congrats. Well deserved. Among the many things I appreciate about your work:

    1) Your facility at integrating moving camera shots with static frames so fluidly that even steadicam moves don't call...

    I'll bite.

    With a Bayer pattern CMOS sensor, 100 megapixels sounds pretty good

    I suppose 25 stops at capture would have some value, but 20 clean stops would be enough to create high fidelity imagery...

    At the time I decided to buy a Monstro I knew it's value would decline fairly rapidly, that's what cameras do. This program probably dropped its resale value another $5-10K this week. That said,...

    Display tech will continue to improve, which means that continual improvement in capture devices has meaning.

    Currently, the laggard is bandwidth limitations that lead to over compression and bit...

    This thread has spent far too many pages going in circles - and reaching conclusions not in evidence - but there are some fundamental points that have real merit.

    Who's it for?

    What is RED's goal for Komodo? Who do they see as their primary market? What are the sales projections?

    I see two logical paths:

    1) RED wants to sell cameras by the truckload. Higher volume to...

    FWIW, if RED really is delaying Komodo for competitive reasons, what could they do that might change the calculus for potential buyers?

    2) 4K crop at 180fps...

    It seems likely that an EF mount for Ranger would designed for shimming vs the DSMC2 EF mount that relies on adjusting the sensor position.
