Sigma CEO gives rare insight on future tech: Plastic Glass, Curved sensors and more…
The French website Mizuwari interviewed Sigma CEO MR. Kazuto Yamaki. There are a lot of news inside their article and I am only sharing four of them here:
Glass versus Plastic Glass: “Plastic glasses suffer from a major problem: they dilate strongly when it is hot and shrink just as much when it is cold. These variations are detrimental to optical performance.”
Curved sensors: “The curved sensors would be an interesting solution for smartphones but too restrictive for a conventional camera, fixed or non-fixed.”
Foveon sensors: “We are not against supplying Foveon sensors to other manufacturers, but it is not so simple. Beyond the hardware, it is also necessary to take into account the dedicated processor, the way to exploit it, the very particular algorithms that make it possible to take advantage of the triple layer architecture.
I am completely for a Leica M with Foveon sensor! And if we made bigger sensors, I’d love to see Hasselblad Foveon sensors.”
Medium Format: “we can not afford to embark on such an adventure.”
시그마CEO가 Mizuwari와의인터뷰에서 곡면센서는 스맛폰용으로는흥미로운솔루션이될수있겠지만 스맛폰이아닌 카메라바디에사용하려면 제약조건이많다고말했다. 그리고 Foveon센서를 타사에공급할수는있겠지만 Foveon센서를잘사용할수있도록하는것들이필요하기때문에 그렇게간단한것이아니라고말했다. 그리고 중형바디는그런모험을할여유가없다고말했다.
