Re: X-Trans is Simply More Added Value, In Our Favor!
Cudo's to Ulri for His/Her diligence in the understanding of Image Sensor Technology and sharing that with us, Cudo's to FUJI for their pioneering spirit that benefits not only us but the advancement of imaging technology exponentially!

Kudos should all go to forum fujix-forum.com user MikeS. He's the man who understands/explains all the details. (I was barely able to follow...).

Everyone touts (no offense to Zeiss) the evolutionary development of the dated algorithms long since summarized for the 2 x 2 Bayer design sensor array mostly due to the longevity of the array pattern's presence in the world of imaging. Yet the 6 x 6 PR-CFA clearly shows a mathematical advantage. Sluggish program development of the RAW conversion algorithms that maximize that advantage is inevitable just as it was with the Bayer. The 6 x 6 will progress evolutionally and in the end we will all benefit from the X-Trans sensor's extended capability.

Progress has been made and more progress will be made. But note that decoding 6x6 seems to be much more difficult and hence take much longer. Also, parametrization of the decoding process is more complex. Decoding raw-files already takes several seconds on my not-too-old machine. I don't fancy waiting longer than this just to get a few more detail pixels.
