Fujifilm: Drop the EXR sensor
Feb 22, 2012

So much of the angst felt for the X10 is because of its "EXR" sensor. I know Fujifilm wants to market this as a unique feature but the truth is that the dynamic range of sensors of this type are already good enough.

The Pentax Q with its tiny compact size sensor has a DR of 11.1ev vs. FujiFilms 11.3ev.

Maybe the EXR sensor was really needed a few years ago but it appears that it has not become a burden.

I hope that for the next X10 and XS-1, that Fujifilm uses a normal sensor with their new pattern array that gets rid of the AA filter.
