    FOVEON'S COLOUR-SENSOR CHIP MAY SHAKE UP THE DIGITAL-CAMERA MARKET

    As an April Fools' Day joke two years ago, Phil Askey posted an apocryphal report on his Web site, Digital Photography Review. Canon, he said, was making a revolutionary chip that would stack colour sensors on top of each other to improve resolution in digital photos. "When I saw that report, my jaw just dropped," says Eric Zarakov, vice-president for marketing at California-based Foveon, which at the time was quietly working on that very idea.
    All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget.

    This is old news by now, but I for one do think that Foveon X3 sensors (or something else that utilises the same idea) are definitely the way to go for the future. I wouldn't characterise it as a major revolution, though; it's quite a natural and expected evolution from Bayer sensors, and probably would have happened sooner or later.
