Which is the vast majority of all signal lights these days. Seems to me the camera should be able to compensate for those overexposed lights. I wonder if the originally planned Sony Exmor* sensor would have worked better. Videos I've seen using the Sony sensor at least produce a color tint to the signal lights.Rendering of colours isn't the issue, it's a challenge of LED based lighting
Guess it depends on your definition of "budget". Budget to me would be a $50 to $100 cam. Considering the competition some with Sony sensors and even GPS in the $100-150 range. What intrigued me about this cam was the size discreteness and capacitor.Where? I've never heard the XS was intended to have one. It would totally defeat the intention of producing a budget camera.
I've looked more in detail to some of the AT11's footage of traffic lights and I noticed the side lights also appear to be white but with a green or red halo around the white part. I never paid much attention to it because at a glance they don't look completely white, like in @Edgardo's XS captures. The top lights always have the correct color.Rendering of colours isn't the issue, it's a challenge of LED based lighting
It's just the way the camera "sees" the light from that angle.
Yes, terrestrial TV is traditionally the most accessible way of getting TV over here. We have digital TV since 2009 and we were the first country in Europe to use MPEG4 H.264 AVC. Many countries already had digital TV but they were using the "old" MPEG2 standard. Paid TV has grown a lot in recent years but it's not available everywhere, unless it's via satellite, and not everybody can afford it.OT... Noticing all the TV antenna arrays. I guess over the air TV is pretty popular there? They show up a little more clearly with the XS, it looks like sharpness is set higher with the XS.
