  1. Yes. I found that a full frame equiv 14mm rectilinear is about the closest to what my eyes see in terms of FOV, coupled with about 200mm (as you said) for things You actively focus on. One thing, when you have a flight or fight response, it all changes again.

  2. Freaking great video! Really well done and entertaining. Did you know that they recently have begun to discover that, just as our brain transforms and controls how we see and what we see/perceive, that much, if not virtually all of what we thought was just aging of our eyes’ lenses and related cells is actually due to and controllable/addressable/fixable by our brain? Researchers have found brain exercises that can correct far/near-sightedness, astigmatism, etc.
    Have you ever noticed how sometimes when you are tired that your eyesight gets really bad all of a sudden? That’s an manifestation of this. I guess that this is not surprising since we are born seeing everything upside-down, left-to-right and as amorphous blobs of light that we can’t yet even label as distinct colors, nor determine and perceive edges, boundaries or objects in general. Pretty cool.
    I am developing AI tools and tech based on this and other neurobiology research. Let me know if you ever want to check out any of this sort of stuff, as you’ve got such a great analytical mind (and Tony is pretty clever too!)

  3. This video is kind of old, but this has been on my mind for quite some time and wasn't covered in the video. How come when it's dark and you can see fine with your eyes you have to either have a high iso or high shutter speed? Your eyes get crystal sharp images in darkness instantly. Is it because our eyes perceive much more light? I wish cameras worked more like eyes 🙂

  4. I have a weird mix of tritanopia / strong protan type colour blind. Ive tried most brands of cameras and Nikon and Sony seems the most vibrant to my eyes in the sense that the colours are pretty vibrant and i can see a difference in a picture taken from a D810 or even a D3400 and an A6300 from real life vision!! Also the Dynamic range range is bloody accurate on CMOS sensors. Its almost like cameras show me a true colour/scene, which I normally am missing out on. So whenever i see a crap photo of a scene or landscape i am blown away XD

  5. Super interesting topic, guys! 👍

    Funny, as a kid I told my buddy dogs see in black and white and in disbelief he looked out over the sea, scoffed and said “What, the sea would be black and the sky white..?”

    Btw, English is a foreign language, but I’ve only heard the word “floater” for…something else. 29:10

  6. Ok so the eye has a extremely wide angle not a resolution compared to mp count, I have perfect vision and i saw a license plate then I took a picture of it with my old galaxy s7 and then I zoomed in afterward and it looked better than what I saw. The eye is like 10mp max to be honest, it can macro in well and deal with lighting and dynamic range very well.

  7. First off, your videos are awesome! I have subscribed and have been watching incessantly for almost a week. Full points for historical research, entertainment value, articulate presentation, banter/camaraderie, humour, etc. Usually, full points for technical knowledge as well. In this case, though, there were a few points that I think were lacking in that area (elaboration in the replies below):

  8. this topic was super dope.. i always wondering how can eye transformed to camera, how biologycally its change people..
    forget ut, idk what im saying. just amazed by this topic that ive wanted so long

  9. Nice and really enlightening episode! This couple don't stop surprising me with their interesting talks. However, in this release, Chelsea keeps a very low profile, she almost sounds and looks sleepy or drowsy at times.

  10. Tony,  I think you missed the critical point when discussing why a 50mm lens is described as “normal.”    Normal refers to how the lens captures relationships.    The 50mm lens captures a scene similar to how we see relationships between objects close to us and faraway.   The wide angle lens exaggerates distances of objects close and far from us, making objects appear to be farther apart.  The telephoto lens does the opposite,it compresses distances making far objects appear to be closer to objects nearer
    to us.  This has been my understanding of what a “Normal”  lens means.

     I know this is a 3 year old post…but I am just catching up–love your videos.
