    Should it pan out it represents a leap forward, not just an incremental advancement in imager technology. Here's hoping it leads to actual product.

    I like the film look. That is what I strive for. I don't see this being good for me.

    I find this very interesting. I have tried the Fuji X-E1, with the X-Trans sensor, and liked it very much.

    I don't see how this sensor won't give any more or less film look than other sensors. More DR should make it easier to recover highlights and shadows - which film is really good at.

    Good point and probably not.

    How true. With a more flexible digital file one can make it look like anything in a matter of seconds.

    Standard sensors don't "see" color. I am guessing that Oly colors are more related to the image processor than to the sensor itself. Panasonic is doing a lot of work around sensor technology. The technology mentioned in this article is probably going to make it to market before the organic sensors do. Bye bye Bayer? Panasonic claims new sensor tech ends color filter light loss. But then maybe not when you read the comment and think about how the processor engines would have to be redesigned to handle the data from the sensor.

    Or this technology from a different company. LensRentals.com - Wavelength-Detecting Sensor Eliminates Bayer Filter, Triples Resolution (Spoiler alert: Read to the very end and then notice the posting date. )

    Almost certainly there's some confusion about the dB value (which unfortunately tends to get used for both power and field strength, with a factor of 2 difference between them). Likely the 88dB SNR is using the field strength measure, in which case 6dB = 1 stop, and 88 ~ 14.7 stops. That's also probably something like a DxO-style measure which measures from 0dB SNR, in which case the bottom few stops aren't really very useful.

    And will it need to be certified as grown chemically free by USDA in USA or Soil Association in UK?

    they don't say how far are from practical applications.
    devices with smallest sensors will get it first, if there is going to be any benefit to it.
    so by the time it grows to 4/3 size the regular (sony/toshiba) technology might surpass it in it's natural moore's law of progression.

    I understand and was being mostly facetious since we always trumpet Oly colors
