I just wanted to add to the debate about the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor which is the APSC sensor used in Fujifilm X series cameras like the XT2, XT20 and XPro2.
The debate which rages on countless forums, centres around the artefacts that can be found on RAW files after they have been processed in Lightroom. Photographers claim that there can be worm like backgrounds and smeary images on high ISO images. Other Fuji users claim never to have come across this problem. Well I did.
Examples of X-Trans Sensor Problems
Here are a couple of examples shown at high magnification taken on a Fuji XT20 at just ISO640.
Although the sensor is claimed to be 24 MP, and that size of sensor should be able to create up to a c’3′ x 2′ print. I would not like to rely on it if details like these were evident. Therefore creating fine art prints with this camera is not going to be possible.
The Technicalities: Fuji X-Trans Sensor
To understand the technicalities of why this is. Then refer to this excellent article.
The answer to the problem many people argue in forums is not to process Fujifim X-Trans images in Lightroom, users suggest instead to use Capture One. Surely however, there is something seriously wrong when one of the world’s most popular cameras, can not use the world’s most popular processing engine and workflow.
