Pretty cool! Reminds me of the space-based ion detectors I used to work on at the Center for Space Sciences. Those were a pain to decipher with their 6 or 7 bit words. I would imagine this technology would be easier, but software for that will make the transition from Bayer filters to Fuji's X-Trans look like a walk in the park.

What's needed now is a printer that can deal with the extra dynamic range. I've long wondered when someone would be able to create a sensor/printer technology that would be comparable to b&w of yore, something Ansel Adams might have used for his prints.

vodanh1982: If Fuji jpeg is good why not show the algorithm to the public? Everyone will happy.

Fuji are trying to get Adobe to play, but so far they haven't had the clout. The algorithm is not rocket science, it's just a slightly different arrangement of the color filters in front of the sensor, and Fuji have made that arrangement known to all since before day one. From a programmer's point of view, actually making an algorithm for this is just a matter of simple mathematics, the most difficult part is shoe horning the new algorithm into the existing Adobe framework.

Ulfric M Douglas: Capture1 looks way too harsh where Adobe is smudgy and bleedy.
Somewhere in between would be good : do Fuji not ship a converter that does the exact same job as their Jpeg in-camera engine?

Capture One has various controls for sharpness, detail, noise reduction, moire reduction, etc. By tweaking these controls you can get the same look as Fuji OOC jpegs.
