We can't say that we've ever heard of PaPaLaB, but all it takes to get on the consumer electronics radar is doing something that no one has ever done before. It's one of those "easier said than done" things, we're guessing. Anywho, the Japanese outfit has just rolled out a camera system that has been proven to see the same colors as the human eye, a feat that was previously only achievable via huge, impractical camera rigs. The YC-3300, however, is far smaller and manageable than prior systems, and it has already been dubbed a "full-visible-color-gamut camera" by the powers that be. The creators expect it to primarily be used for photographing digital archives and for use in the medical field, but we're already anxious to see such technology miniaturized further and ushered into the consumer market. Surely someone can make that happen before the next PMA kicks off, right?
