Well digital cameras (basically the only kind now) use bayer arrays that contain 2 green pixels per 1 red and 1 blue. The sensors themselves are monochromatic. They're filtered for a specific range of wavelengths and arranged in square shapes like that. Some processing electronics are in between these things. Basically there is a lot of interpolation involved in producing an image from that. In my little square shaped thing, R = red, G = green, B = blue. They're just...
 PSDs offer some minor amount of compression, but there are too many issues that can cause them to fail to expand. Compatibility mode merely embeds a flat copy within the encoded stack. lzw is the most common type of tiff compression. I think it relies on collapsing to pointers much like jpeg. It's slow and not everything can open them. EXR is nice because where support is implemented, it's consistent in its behavior. With compression you sometimes end up at 30-50% the...
Yeah although the reason I suggested it was that it saves at 16 or 32 bpc without taking up a huge amount of space on disk. It's often much smaller than a typical tiff file and where properly supported much more malleable. 
Yeah it's just that you're more likely to attach them to something other than a smartphone. Phones still do not provide the same amount of flexibility. Some of the dslrs such as recent nikons are really quite impressive. There's a difference in fine details and difficult gradation, but they're quite workable. I don't know who would buy this. You lose the camera that fits easily in your pocket, yet still lack slr features.  I'm surprised we haven't seen more fully linear...
It would be nice to see lower off contract pricing, but I don't see any reason why it would be necessary to buy a new phone ever year. They went with the 5c over the 5. It may have been cheaper to produce the c. If they don't determine that to be a failed strategy, you are more likely to see a revised 5c with the 5s discontinued.  I think it's reasonable to say need at the basic level.  It doesn't have to be a smartphone. You can get a flip phone for $30 with a cheap...
It's likely that it's more complex than that. They may have cost sharing arrangements set up between US and overseas subsidiaries. Apart from that they do claim credits on anything paid in other countries assuming that they filed for refunds where applicable. If they didn't, the expense could be disallowed, unless that changed in the last couple years without my ever becoming aware of it.
It doesn't conduct a lot of heat, which is one of the reasons it's popular for various tripods. It can be set up in cold weather without extreme hand discomfort. I don't know that they really use the shell for heat dissipation. It gets hot, but nothing about the cooling channels really suggests that the use of aluminum improves temperature levels. I mentioned the prior stuff due to it offering a better ratio between weight and tensile strength for some of those...
Mine hasn't died, but I decided to limit it to integrated graphics for most tasks whenever possible. Obviously some things such as external displays won't work that way (no hardware path). If it dies I'll replace it, as I do have to take it with me.
 It's often used for light weight. Look at common use cases where carbon fiber is popular. Bicycle frames, tennis rackets, and tripods are 3 of the most frequent ones I know..
 I haven't reviewed the bill in enough depth to make a meaningful comment on what it may or may not do, but this is specifically regarding your argument. When you start talking about theoretical entities, they no longer possess all human rights. They're a method of abstraction used to shield their ownership against part of their financial obligations. The business can go down without bankrupting its ownership. It's not really the same thing as an individual. Both are...
