Anyone have any insight into how this will effect the MF industry?

Time to go to CMOS with Canon big sensors ?

ps: I hate this international internet. Watching Nik's surf images teahupoo kind of spots, Rob's Mallorca breasts and boats, Michael's Mexico or Tokengirl's tropical beaches...It's bloody freezing in Madrid. Oh well, I just think about Slodoban and C.Barrett in Chicago with minus 20...

It's freezing here too.

Just think of warm beaches and breasts Smiley

At 23 and rising, sure you get to look at the breasts....at well below freezing, we actually get to help them stay warm Smiley

There are some advantages to the great white north.

Could only be a good thing for the MF world, if the companies share technology.

Sounds cold everywhere you guys are. It's a whopping 72 degrees here today!

(I love good old american fahrenheit - it's so logical! freezing is 32F and boiling is 212F - DUH).

My prediction: Phase One digital backs on Mars by 2020.

You're kidding right. I thank god for the Internet and people that have made F to C converters otherwise I would never be able to relate to Fahrenheit temperatures. Once I learned the underlying idea of Fahrenheit which made kind of sense but not so much I did not forget in later years.

Just give me C & metric. 0 for freezing and 100 for boiling, sweet water at sealevel I recall or at a certain athmosperic pressure (1 Atm).

Anyway. Over here it is around -2 which obviously is too cold to see breasts and apparently not cold enough to be allowed to warm them.. Sad

That's an easy prediction.  

It's probably the only place there hasn't been a PODAS seminar yet and Mars gotta lot of rocks to take pictures of.

Happy Holidays

I just discovered this thread. No idea why I missed it, but the breasts (seen, warm, cold!) must have finally attracted me subliminally. The unfortunate relationship I share with breasts this week is that I was so damned cold having my shower yesterday that I had the horror of thinking I was growing them: my nipples were so bloody painful. Fortunately, I then remembered having had the same ache last winter and that relaxed me again. Whew! Who needs that - I'd be better off with a Christmas carol (lower case s). But I don't know... haven't met many of them, in fact I can only remember two such people.

Well, the snow line was down to 200 metres for a while, though thanfully it has now fled the island.

Have a great festive season, you lot out there!

Blue skies and 27C/81F here in Sydney. It's Christmas Day and I'm off to eat lobster tails.

Who needs a white Christmas?

Season's greetings.

Teledyne has some significant know-how in large CMOS sensors, though apparently aimed at telescopes, so the merging of Teledyne's and DALSA's resources is quite promising. Some refs (read about "monolithic CMOS" and the newer 4T versions of it in particular):
http://www.teledyne-si.com/infrared_visible_fpas/index.html
http://www.teledyne-si.com/infrared_visible_fpas/Teledyne%20Imaging%20Sensors%20-%20Visible%20SPIE%20Paper%20_7021-01_.pdf


P. S. What is more, Teledyne's large CMOS "telescope and satellite" sensors offer a 5 micron pixel size that is viable for DMF cameras. This is in contrast to Canon's recently announced very large "telescope" CMOS sensor, which has far larger photosites, and so too little resolution for a commercially viable DMF product.

Nevertheless, it is still quite likely that Teledyne has little interest in entering the "retail" sensor market like DMF, and that at best its new Dalsa division will continue to design and make DMF sensors only as a spin-off from the primary target markets of industrial, medical, military, and astronomical applications.

That is good news, because I believe CMOS is a certainty in medium format's future.

Lower power, larger sizes, higher ISO, lower cost, live view, video, etc.

I don't know anything about Teledyne, but it sounds like a great match on paper.  Thanks for the links!
