The cameras that use three layer sensors (Foveon) such as the Sigma dslr's don't have issues with the bluring at 100%, moire patterns and artifects as found with mosaic ccd cameras.

I think it should be reviewed on this site. Any reasons why it shouldn't?

The SD9 and SD10's have been around for a long time.

Hi Jason, I have previously tested the earlier Sigma DSLRs for the various magazines I also work for, but all came out before the launch of Cameralabs - and as I'm sure you appreciate, there's so many new products out that it's impractical to look backwards at older ones.

That said, we do of course intend to review the new Sigma models once they become available. I was very impressed with the first generation of Foveon sensors and look forward to testing the next generation.

I found you have written a book about personal computing development history.

I commend you on that. I did a show back in 2002 at a community college. You can see a video I did linked below:

Back then I wanted to write a book much like yours, but never got around to it. There were no good history books of personal computing back then. I read some and they were pretty boring.

Most of the computers were mine but unfortunately I don't have them anymore.

Hi Jason, I'm glad you came across my book...

If you're after more information on it, I built a website describing the contents with some FAQs at www.digitalretro.co.uk - it's not too late for a Christmas gift! Hint hint!

You've got a good selection. If you ever do a second addition, I'd include heathkit and Zenith Datasystems, especially Zenith, they have introduced a lot of groundbreaking features when it comes to laptops and computers. I had the pleasure to use a 8086 Supersport for several years. It was a pretty solid computer with lots of features.

If I knew those museums existed at the time, I would have donated all those systems instead of trashing them. I really regret getting rid of the NeXTCube. That was the most impressive of the bunch.

Your book lands nicely in my budget so I'll pick one up. Thanx!
