Inside Fuji’s first compact system camera (CSC), the Fuji X-Pro1, is a 16.3 million pixel X-Trans CMOS that produces images of up to 15.89MP. This means that when images are printed at 300ppi, they are just a small fraction short of full A3 size – ideal for most enthusiast photographers.
Although this sensor is APS-C sized, Fuji claims that its cunning design enables the X-Pro1 to produce images that are superior to those from a full frame DSLR like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Nikon D700.
The Fujifilm X Pro 1 compact system camera has beaten the Leica M9 and some of the top full frame DSLRs, including the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, in resolution tests conducted by our testing team.
When the Fuji X Pro 1 was announced back in January, a ripple of disbelief spread around the globe after Fuji claimed that its APS-C sized sensor was capable of producing better results than full-frame cameras.
