I doubt whether three layer technologies will ever get any traction. For most purposes, Bayer is a perfectly acceptable design solution and given the accumulated investment that it gathers, it simply will continue to offer better price/performance than any emergent three layer technoloy.

One of the major advantages of Foveon (and other three layer solutions) is that all colors are sampled equal at each pixel. See here:


Look at the coin just above Mickey Mouse. Its quite colorful for A and GR. Thats color aliasing.

The DP1M does not have it. NOTE - you have to switch DP1M to ISO 200, DPReview have missed the focussing at ISO 100.

But - there is a threat to DP1M. The Fuiji don't show any color aliasing either. The Fuji does not use a Bayer CFA, but rather as pseudo random CFA. Seems like a good idea.

Interesting link.  Just to see, I brought up the Fuji X100 in the widget, since the X100 sensor is a bayer sensor.  No color moire.

Maybe Fuji has a trick or two they aren't telling us about.
