Interesting essay in Serious Compacts

July 23, 2008

On my previous entry I wrote about how Panasonic is making use of the sensor area of the LX3 for the different aspect ratio formats and how interestingly the sensor doesn´t seem to have a “native format”. Björn Utpott, a contributor and member of Serious Compacts has posted a very interesting and enlightening essay that explains the maths behind it. Short, clear and elegant he manages to explain this point in a way my childish babbling would have never  😉 …Worth a read. He also has two very interesting diagrams in his PBase gallery, showing how the camera uses the image circle here and comparing the sensor areas used by the LX3 oposed to the LX2 here.
