The Foveon X3: The Scientist and the Photographer
Richard Lyon, Chief Scientist, Foveon, Inc. and
Stephen Johnson, Photographer Wednesday, October 9, 2002.
7- 8:30pm

Join us us for a first look at a remarkable new digital photography technology.

Last February Foveon announced a digital photography breakthrough, the first full resolution color instant capture camera, their X3 Sensor. It caused quite a stir, sparking everything from shock, to admiration, and disbelief. At Photokina in Germany last month, Sigma began showing the shipping version of the camera using the Foveon sensor (due later this month) with a surprising $1800 price.

Dick Lyon is the Chief Scientist at Foveon and is responsible for developing the color science behind the camera system. Steve has been consulting with Mr. Lyon and Foveon for many years and has been testing the X3 technology for over a year. Steve and Dick will talk about their perspectives on the camera and this breakthrough technology. Most of the time will be given to Mr. Lyon's presentation on the technology.



This illustrated talk is part of a monthly series of lectures at his Pacifica California Studio.

Admission: $5. Admission price can be applied to any purchase during the evening.

RSVP is required as seating is limited. 650 355-7507 or email michelle@sjphoto.com
