Fujifilm Explains Its Approach to the Future of Big Sensor Filmmaking

Fujifilm is looking to the future of larger sensors...and wanting to make sure they can cover them.

We stopped by the Fujifilm booth at NAB to talk about the company's plans for the future as camera sensor sizes get bigger and bigger. Already a force to be reckoned with in Super 35mm, Fujifilm says that it plans on having solutions as more filmmakers begin to make the move toward shooting with full-frame (or larger) cameras.

According to Fujifilm's Takuya Noguchi, one solution the company has come up with to fix the issue of covering full-frame sensors with its catalog of Super 35 glass is by adding expanders, namely those from Duclos, that will increase the image circle without sacrificing image quality. However, one major issue when using expanders is the loss of light that occurs during the transition (with the Duclos expander, you're looking at losing a full stop of light), which is something that 1.) Fujifilm is working on solving, and 2.) may not be that big of a deal for Fujifilm's super fast zooms anyway.

I don't believe a teleconverter with no loss in brightness is possible, no matter how hard Fuji is "working on it".

Where did 3-sensor cameras go? One for Red, Green, and Blue. Seems like you would get better dynamic range and better anti-aliasing with more sensors.
