I gave a talk at EnthusiastiCon on the 6th of June about the very basics of digital photography and how pixels are actually made of lies 🤐
Here’s the Talk!

Other Really Good Resources
- RawTherapee’s RawPedia has a really good intro to Demosaicing as well as info on how a bunch of real-world algorithms work!
- How cameras see color: RGB vs RGBW, Bayer vs Fuji X-Trans, Purple isn’t real?!
- iFixit’s Nikon D600 teardown is extremely cool.
- A Google Search for “Wormies Fuji X-trans” which is kindaaaaa fascinating reading, with regards to seeing how people respond to an abstraction being violated.
