I am a scientist and also a photography hobbyist based in Sweden. I am interested in camera sensor and lens analysis and comparing their features in large scale but through a different perspective.
Professionally I deal with mass spectrometry related issues combined with bioinformatics on large data matrices. Mass spectrometers to my view share some common areas with photo sensors, except, one in general, measures mass to charge ratios (m/z) of the molecular ions hitting its detector at a defined timeframe and registers the signal intensity and the other measures the intensity of photon flux. They both suffer from background noise and some similar electronic features and trade offs because of their design and for what purpose they are made for.
There are huge numbers of camera reviews, videos and articles on the Web that do all sorts of analysis which to my view are not comprehensive since they usually take into account one or two variable(s) at a time and ignore their other features and also ignore the fact that we are living in a multivariate world! Therefore I endeavour to provide information and share a different analysis approach for camera enthusiasts to explain this. I hope that you find it useful.
