interesting new CMOS design

http://www.fujifilm.com/products/dig...pro1/features/

Supposedly does away with AA filter, making for sharper OSC images.

Tha camera is the best small camera around and that sensor has got to be one of the best ever. Very very clever design emulating flim grains where you have large grains and small grains in film. By creating a more random pattern of rgb colour lenses they don't need the AA filter to blur the resulting repeating colour patterns of the Bayer Matrix that causes colour moire. So theoretically it would only suffer from luminance moire. But I doubt that hardly ever happens (my experience with D800E which has no AA filter).

Imagine if it were a full framed size sensor! It would give the worlds current best sensor - the Nikon D800 a run for its money.

If I had the bucks I'd get one of these little Xpro 1's. The image quality is right up there with the very very best and so compact. Plus I read Fuji's lenses are the best out there.

Also very good low light high ISO performance. Perhaps it may be good for astro work.

Greg.
