Fujifilm Super CCD EXR

Fujifilm has recently announced a new Super CCD sensor promissing the benefits of high resolution, high sensitivity and wide dynamic range.

Still using the traditional Super CCD hexagonal pixel pattern (on the left,) the new EXR offers a new color filter array (on the right).

This new pattern allows a better sensitivty and processing, and can be used to capture an image using different exposure times.

This allows it to capture detailed picture in both well lit and poorly lit areas - traditionally over/under-exposed in other sensors, requiring a second shot and later processing.

Now we just need to wait for the first cameras using this new Super CCD EXR to come out and see how they perform in the real world.
