I guess some one listens!
"No Optical Low-Pass filter. Unique 6X6 colour filter array with quasi-random distribution for elimination of moire and aliasing."http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=11823.0
1. I'm not familiar with the process used to manufacture sensors but I always thought a round sensor would allow me to get all the image from a round lens and I could crop any aspect ratio later when processing the RAW file?
2. Since film has a randomness to the silver halide and we are conditioned to seeing that over a lifetime, would there be an advantage to a sensor having say 3, 4 and 6 micron photocells arranged in a pseudo random patern like a latin square (sudoku)?
3. One last thought from a beginners point of view... I wish Digital SLRs had a user interface like a modern aircraft's FMS. A screen with line select keys on each side and an enter button, quick easy and intuitive.
4. One more last thought since I'm new at this, an industry standard for displaying histograms in stops (cameras and software), the audio industry always displays amplitude vs. frequency in octaves.
Marc LUL Aug 16th 2006It is interesting to note that your eye has discrete R,G,B color receptors (cones) and a lot more B&W receptors (rods) . So, good enough for my eye, good enough for my camera. I’d like to see a R,G,B,L (luminance) sensor in a pseudo random pattern (Latin squares vs. Bayer) w/o an AA filter.

I guess my Idea isn't so crazy?
