Re: XT4 update

I think that X-Trans makes high-res sensor shift pretty difficult to accomplish. I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Personally, I think X-Trans is doomed. Fuji have already stated that it's not necessary in higher resolution applications - the juice isn't worth the squeeze. Standardizing on Bayer will allow Fuji to consolidate programming efforts (same for X and GFX), enable pixel shift, allow for more efficient image processing as X-Trans is more processor intensive, and probably save them money on the sensor itself.

Even the software firms will save as they won't have to maintain and update X-Trans demosaicing algorithms.

It's not whether X-Trans was good or bad for the prior or current cameras, but whether it makes sense when the next sensors come out.
