I am speaking about the images I have seen, as I stated.  Others may
look at the same images by doing a google search and looking at them.

There is a very long and detailed article at:


The images and comparisons to a CCD camera (a Canon EOS-D60) start with
page 19 of the review and continue for several pages.


(this link may not work, you may have to go to the earlier url and then
use the drop down menu to get to page 19 or above)

You are getting close to libel again, Austin.

Then perhaps they should consider hiring me.

My eyes say it solves some, even many, of the CCD problems in color
digital camera use.  I'm not the only one that feels that way.  I think
the concept of the chip is elegant and brilliant in its simplicity of
design, and that the future of image capture will benefit from this
technology being available.

Yes, of course, Austin, I "forgot", you always know and understand
everything fully, and the vast majority of the rest of us are simpletons
and idiots who are prey to misinformation and BS.  Thank you so much for
  saving us from our folly.
