Fujifilm X-pro1 review at the Digital Photography School

"The X-Pro1 also takes another departure mostly ignored by the others: its newly-developed colour filter array removes the need for an optical low-pass filter to solve moiré and false colour issues.

In this array, RGB pixels are arranged in 6×6 pixel sets with high randomness, emulating the seeming haphazardness of film grain.

Increasing randomness eliminates these artefacts, a problem found all too often when shooting repetitive patterns like cloth texture etc. This approach also removes the likelihood of false colour capture.

Even the lenses’ aperture blades have been attended to: the blades are curved to create a circular image at all aperture settings, with the very edges of each blade rounded off rather than simply chopped off, delivering a sharper image.

Once you attach the lens, the hybrid finder automatically switches the frame display and finder magnification; this does of course mean that longer focal length lenses will have a diminished frame area.

A really novel feature that will win many hearts is the camera’s ability to apply internal filtering for B&W photography. How about a yellow filter to slightly darken blue skies? Or a red filter to emphasise cloud shots? Got me!"
