Continuous Evolution on Resolution
and Color Reproduction
X-Trans™ CMOS *1 sensor developed by Fujifilm.
Nurtured the idea from film technology,
X-Trans controls moiré while achieving high resolution without the use of a low-pass filter.

X-Trans is Fujifilm’s trademark or registered trademark.
Boasting a resolution of 26.1MP, the sensor uses a unique color filter array, synonymous to X-Trans CMOS sensors, to control moiré and false color without the use of an optical low-pass filter. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality while maintaining a high S/N ratio. Furthermore, ISO160, previously available only as extended ISO, is now part of the normal ISO range, allowing you to achieve incredibly clean, noise free images.
RGB is always placed on any horizontal or vertical line to correctly interpolate colors in high-frequency images
G pixels are placed in all diagonal lines. It improves the accuracy of diagonal high-frequency image detection and color interpolation

Fujifilm has been innovating sensors to achieve high image quality in digital photography since silver halide film.
Bayer filter array has only two colors per line.
The design does not allow pixels to exist diagonally.
Bayer filter array causes image quality degradation called moiré.
