    An interesting discussion, but feels like it's not without some bias:

    That's exactly why RED made EPIC 5K to make better Bayer pattern interpolation and reach closer to the full 4K or 4096 red, 4096 green and 4096 blue photo sites.

    Although I occasionally do some feature work, it is rare - I don't make "movies" so there are good financial and practical reasons for me to own the camera, as is the case for many other people.

    I didn't see any more bias than is normal for anyone with a point of view. I thought it was an interesting, intelligent article in which he makes a lot of good points.

    Great read. We could argue on the resolution vs frame rate argument...

    Respect to that man.

    Thanks for the link.

    Reading it before when we had a long discussion here at the forum and comparing it with the new interview

    I've got impression that John Galt is slowly preparing himself to retire, go in pension and he just wanted again

    to point out about a couple of the same things as he already did it in his presentation at Panavision site.

    But actually he didn't say anything new about the topic.

    John's an old friend of mine. We both appreciate image quality, but have very different ideas on how to achieve it.

    I think there's some good technical merit to his article.

    I felt the strict catagorization of calling a 4k Bayer-source frame sitrictly a marketing gimmick seemed a bit much. Why not simply point out the merits of what a technology can or can't do.

    I didn't see him pointing out the poissues with registration error on 3-chip cameras (and therefore the attendent effective MTF decrease) as a reason to suggest such camera's resoultions were marketing claims...

    Interesting point about the OLPF, though. Graeme, any comment on OLPF selection when the G photosite count is 2X the R or B counts?

    Wasn't this interview, in an article format called "Marketing Pixels" or something like that, was published by John about 18-24 months ago back at 2008?

    How come it is brought up again?

    Just because EPIC is finally done yesterday.
