Just trying to understand your perspective on this..

Simple, even for you. The word random has a meaning. Do you have a dictionary? Probably not so here:

random |ˈrandəm|
adjective
made, done, happening, or chosen without method or conscious decision :

Without method . There is clearly a method to Fujifilm's X-Trans sensor.

Would you be happier if the didn't use this word?

It would be more accurate.

Perhaps it's just a case of a bad translation from Japanese over to English?

Doubtful. It is all over Fujifilm's propaganda.

I find it encouraging that you are now nit-picking such trivial things as it might mean that the actual camera is just fine after all..

Trivial to you, but then again, you seem not to appreciate accuracy.

Cheers,

Fujifilm keeps reffering to the X-Trans sensor's layout as random. For example:

"The unique random arrangement of the [X-Tran's] colour filter array is also highly effective in enhancing noise separation in high-sensitivity photography."

This is nonsense. Anyone who looks at the X-Trans sensor can see that it is made up of a repeating/ pattern of RGB. In other worse, if you see one unit (pixel) of the sensor, you can "draw" the whole sensor, over and over and over again. If the sensor were truly random, you would not know what the next unit would look like. The X-Trans is not at all random, it just has a different layout than the Bayer pattern.
