Fujifilm BAYER vs X-TRANS Blind Test: 88% of Preferences Go To…

Almost 2 years ago, I wrote a comprehensive article comparing the virtues of Bayer vs X-Trans sensor, giving you reasons why Fujifilm should stick with X-Trans, and on the other hand telling you also why for other reasons Fujifilm should leave X-Trans for its APS-C sensors.

Attention: it’s a long article. So do not click this link, if you don’t like it when my articles are too long.

I stand by everything I said back then.

Of course the debate is not ending. Hence, Andrew did what probably is the best thing to do, to evaluate which sensor is better: a blind test.

200+ people commented on his video, and since people do not like long articles, I will leave it to you to read them all, take paper and pen, and note all the results.

Nah… you know what?

I’ll do it for you. I love it when I simplify your life and save you some time.

So, I’ve checked out all the comments, and marked the results on a paper.

There were some (not many) cases, where people didn’t have a clear preference and said that both are very good.

In most cases, people had a rather clear preference.

Sometimes people got more or less equal results between 2 cameras, in which case I gave a point to each camera.

The cameras tested are:

And here are the results people shared in the comments:

Fujifilm X-Trans Sensor Receives Japanese National Invention Award

Fujifilm X-Trans

The Fujifilm X-Trans sensor has been awarded with the “National Invention Award” by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Scienes and Technology.

Finally a recognition, for a techonlogy, the X-Trans sensor, that has never really been marketed well by Fujifilm, and is sometimes misunderstood in the photo community.

I have written about the virtures of the X-Trans sensor vs Bayer sensor (and vice versa).

Let’s hope that, with today’s recognition, Fujifilm will start to promote X-Trans in a proper way.

Fujifilm X-Trans vs Bayer Sensor Quick Blind Test Comparison: Which One do you Prefer?

X-Trans vs Bayer Blind Test

Little weekend game :)

Since we recently talked about Fuji colors vs Nikon, Sony and Canon, let’s do a fun little (and non scientific) blind test with you guys.

This time we compare the Fujifilm X-T20 X-Trans with the Fujifilm X-T100 Bayer CMOS sensor cameras.

Both cameras were used with the Fujinon XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ.

Keep in mind that this is not only a comparison between X-Trans and Bayer, but also a comparison between different processing engines.

I did the test, and my score is 1 to 5 for X-Trans. Only for 1 case I could not see a significant difference, in all other cases I went straight for X-Trans.

To my taste, the color rendition of the Fujifilm X-T100 was in some cases a bit exaggerated and less natural, for example in the cloudy sky or the rusty chain. Also, in my eyes, on the X-T20 green/yellow leaves overall looked more natural and less plasticky.

Maybe that’s due to the more aggressive processing applied by the processor used in Fuji’s Bayer cameras, which is something we have analyzed already back in 2013 here, when we compared the Bayer X-A1 to the X-Trans X-M1.
