Foveon sells some very high-end digital equipment. I was looking at one of
their studio cameras that cost about $50,000 US.  /jim

  Thought you guys might be interested in this.   Looks like Sigma will have
a digital camera?

  Hi,

  A new kind of image sensor has been announced by a company called Foveon
  that captures each color in a single pixel - no filters as we use in CCD
  imaging and no matrix as is used in color cameras.  It looks fascinating
and
  some folks are seriously excited about it.  See
  http://www.dpreview.com/news/0202/02021101foveonx3.asp
  for some details.  It was interesting to note that one of the chip
  geometries is 2304 x 1536 x 9 micron in a 25.5 mm diagonal chip.  I wonder
  what the Q.E. is?

  John
