    Mode 2 peaking seems great ! Jump to 4' to see it ;)

    For GXR users, is it usable and fast ?

    Yeah, graphics people invented that algorithm two or three decades ago now. I was impressed to see that a camera manufacturer had finally bothered to add it to live view (and curious why no one bothered sooner). You know we've got a toolbox of these algorithms and image systems a mile high and twenty years deep. There's so much camera manufacturers could do if they had a decent software team.

    The Sony NEX cameras do that, too.

    Um ... not just software. See the thread with the guy and his bug photo rig. Intersecting NIR/IR lasers for focus ... that would be phase contrast focus in effect. Basically if the camera manuf. would really look at the oddball uses of their cameras and images (both SW & HW) they could find all kinds of nifty things they could use.

    I've been building imaging systems for 20 years and can't get cameras made to my needs so we just bought a camera company and now are just make 'em ourselves! Hopefully we don't fall into that same trap of serving the lowest common denominator...

    OT: do you have a blog or website where we can track development news?

    Not really the kind of cameras this crowd is particularly interested in ...

    Aplegen and the camera division is SBIG - follow on facebook. None of the really cool camera stuff will be talked about as that goes into the life sciences product line and that is kept close to the vest.
