Fujifilm X-Trans Sensors - enough pixels? | Dean Johnston | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I see some people are lamenting what they see as the X-Trans sensor’s lack of pixels and / or non full frame-ness (“I’m not getting one till they’re full frame – harumph!” etc.). Not quite the same thing, but with DP Review’s very recent X100s review, there’s all that “These files suck” stuff going on in the comments too.* Hmm…


There’s no denying it. In terms of actual photographic activity, as in, producing something you can hold in your hands or hang on a wall, pixel count is the single most important thing in digital photography.** Without enough pixels, you simply can’t make a good print. End of story. How many pixels are enough? Well, it depends on how large you want to print, expected viewing distances, etc. The question here is, for typical uses, do the X-Trans sensors have large enough pixel counts? ....
