Multi domain LCD panels Wed, 12 Jun 2019 18:59:36 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 22171@/talks/discussions image

Lot of larger panels, and some small PVA/MVA ones use multi domain panels where each color for pixel has multiple separate domains. Idea is that it usually perceived as having better contrast and technically as domain become larger it is much harder to do it consistent.

One issue is that such panels have issues with Cleartype, as well as strange perception of some sharp elements boundaries.

If you deal in sharpness on such monitor it can also produce strange results.

  • Nikon had 26,7% of Japanese camera market
  • Sony had 13,1% of Japanese camera market
  • Olympus had 6% of Japanese camera market
  • Ricoh had 5.8% of Japanese camera market

Compared to year ago (April 2018)

  • Nikon sold -15% less cameras
  • Sony sold -6,6% less cameras
  • Olympus sold -13,8% less cameras
  • Fuji sold +19,4% more cameras

Now if we look at value:

  • Canon got -11,4% less for sold cameras
  • Nikon got -28,5% less for sold cameras
  • Sony got +14,5% more for sold cameras
  • Olympus got -21,3% less for sold cameras

So, even in japan idea to move to FF and hike prices works horribly for now.
