I will stick around for sure, this is a fun forum. I wish we discussed Fujifilm created pictures more though...

Sorry, it's not you, it's Ratty. He's anathema here to many of us. He constantly trolls and is often successful at sidetracking sincere discussion. W/o him here, literally, DPR Fuji would instantly improve in degree of reasonable discussion. We speak 'to him' b/c he comments - trollishly and insincerely w/the single obsession of trashing fuji - and well, why shouldn't we reply to his comments?

But ultimately, we're just talking. If you'd really like the discussion to be more civil, you'll wish for Ratty to go away.

You'll see. Just stick around and see what he has to add....

I see. I focused on the specific comment though and I was surprised by the type of exchange. As as an outsider here, I can tell you that it is quite "strong". Almost like everyone replies to the person, not the comment.

Let's move to other things, hey? Life is short.

Yes, rattymouse is the king troll of the forums. Ask anyone, and do a quick search of his posts. He's unabashedly rude and never adds anything to any discussion. So thanks for legitimizing him.

As a mathematician who spent years studying randomness I can verify that it is not random! It is actually upsetting to see companies abusing the use of these terms.

The only thing I would say is that randomness is related to complexity (in some advanced theories) so maybe they mean that it is a bit more complex to process?

BTW, I do not understand the rude reply from another member of the forum. Completely unnecessary. Rattymouse have you upset people in the past and now they shoot for no reason?

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.
