    Default The human eye

    Was poking around and found:

    Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M tagged as "out-performs the human eye"

    Then I scratch head and wonder... hmmm... interesting... I wonder if the human eye is considered a camera+lens, what would be its spec? Such as what is its f-stop, focus length, zoom, ISO, shuttle speed etc.

    Anyone know?

    Shutter speed, not shuttle speed...

    Already discussed to death, easy to find online too. Here, I even googled it for you:

    Why want to know? You are making a camera out of a human eye?

    I know eye is naturally 50mm. Is there a Aperture size also?

    just like a camera, it has a lens, focal length, aperture and sensor.

    ISO: 1 - 800 equivalent
    Aperture: f2.1 - f8.3 (f3.5 dark-adapted is claimed by the astronomical community)
    i disagree with this assumption though

    i can see objects in a near pitch black room
    but my camera can't at widest aperture (f1.8) and iso 12800 (need more than 10sec exposure)
    i was playing with my camera in the dark when i just got my setup

    interesting read though

    For passion or prestige? A trend or a niche?

    Sensor on the camera is related to the nerves from the eyes which is linked to our brain. So what you are saying is that human brain is better than camera sensor. Not comparing lens with eyes

    and the human eye has an unbeatable dynamic range.
