An initial look at the Digital Bolex D-16 | Philip Bloom
First impressions, some sample footage, and a short video shot on the new Digital Bolex:
Absolutely no moire or aliasing that I have seen. Zero, zlich.
A very filmic image, more so than the BMD Pocket Camera. It really has a proper S16mm look to it, not just a S16mm sized sensor.

Center Scan vs Full scan test with same on the Sony F55 | Community Sony
Conclusions: Center Scan mode at first does not seem as sharp as the Full Scan mode but from my tests I can attest that the center scan mode does not suffer from any aliasing or other types of articating which is GREAT news.

As I’ve become a more network-focussed photographer, I’ve come to love using the smartphone as an editing surface; touch is perfect for photo manipulation. There’s a tactility that is lost when you edit with a mouse on a desktop computer. Perhaps touch feels natural because it’s a return to the chemical-filled days of manually poking and massaging liquid and paper to form an image I had seen in my head.
