    Image of Foveon x530I have a few links about this topic down below. I've been a big fan of Foveon's x3 chip for a while now. But the only way to get it was from a Sigma SLR which can cost a pretty penny.

    Now Polaroid is producing a camera at the mid range consumer level. I'll have to wait for some reviews before knowing if it's something I'm interested in (I'm a fan of high end cameras, but I can't afford the $1,000+ price tag & lenses just yet). But I like the trend of bringing this beautiful technology to to this level. Plus based on the numbers, this looks like it's 4.5 megapicels versus 3.4 in the Sigma, of course that could be missleading since the x3 isn't the same type of sensor usually compared by megapixels.
