Developed to take advantage of the exceptional resolution of the XF lens, the X-PRO1 boasts a revolutionary new sensor inspired by film.
Moiré is tackled at its root cause by the revolutionary X-Trans CMOS sensor's colour filter array. By enhancing aperiodicity (randomness) in the array arrangement, the colour filter minimizes generation of both moiré and false colours, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter in the lens and enabling X-Trans CMOS sensor to capture full “unfiltered” lens performance.
The EXR Processor Pro is supported by an integrated co-processor for higher speed and higher precision image processing performance.
Repeating pattern in an array of 2 x 2 pixel units.
The optical low-pass filter prevents the occurrence of moiré and false colours but results in a loss of resolution.
Lens with optical low-pass filters
Higher degree of randomness with an array of 6 x 6 pixel units. Without using an optical low-pass filter, moiré and false colours are eliminated while realizing high resolution.
Inspired by the natural random arrangement of the fine grains of silver halide in film.
