[filmscanners] Re: Foveon patent



Just as a point in space can be defined in terms of coordinates that aren't
orthogonal, I would think that a color can be defined in terms of components
that aren't as orthogonal as RGB or CMY.  I would guess that Faveon takes
what they get with the silicon, and then performs a transformation to get
the conventional components.
