pixel shift results are AMAZING, but seems to be very processor intensive, as does the X-Trans sensor.  I know I've read articles that state this, but I'm taking a guess when I say that perhaps pixel shift with X-Trans together would require a processor newer than the X-Processor4?  Or perhaps some aggressive firmware that slows down the camera to keep heat down?  Even though it's the processor of the X-T3, it's still new enough that they use it in the X-T4.

EDIT: and I agree with @andrei89, that it would very likely require a wider shift to cover the pixel possibilities.  Looking at the Wiki entry, I would guess that the 1/2 pixel shift needed for a minimal pixel shift would require 3 pixels.  So could theoretically require 6x the light that Bayer requires.  Or 6x of some other resource... maybe 3x the light, but only 1/2 of the pixel increase of other cameras.

- just my 2cents

@jlmphotos, the xt1_manual in Specifications (pg126) states 4896x3264 (16MP) for single images, and 2160*9600 (21MP) for panorama.  That means the camera can improve it's resolution 31%, and you have the problem of varying perspective (do you raise and lower your tripod?  only works well for very close shots), as all panoramas have.  This is hardly a substitute for in-camera pixel shift (although pixel shift has the problem of increased exposure resulting in motion).  If you're referring to taking separate images and then using an editor to join them, that is quite a lot of extra work, especially for someone who isn't familiar with basic tools.  Image editors are far from intuitive.

If you want higher res, shoot a vertical pano. Just a suggestion as I've done this with my X-T1 for sh*ts and giggles and the results are amazing.

    • I just got a new X-S10 and after about 4 days of use it started making an audible whirring sound when on. It's loud enough to hear at an arms length and makes too much sound for use with a hotshoe mounted mic. I've tried turning off the IBIS and autofocus and nothing seems to stop it. I am using the 16-80 predominantly but it also makes the sound with an old manual lens. The sound stops when in playback mode. I tried updating the firmware to the most recent which has not solved the issue. Does anyone have any ideas or should I just exchange it?   Thanks,
    • I just received my new XT-4. First time I have a Fuji and first time I have an hybrid. The camera invited me to upgrade the firmware to 1.20. I have download it on a card and followed the procedure. I obtained the screen "update completed. Turn off the camera". I turn off the camera but when I turn on again I can just obtained the same screen "Firmware upgrade" and not the menu.  What should I do to access the menu again ? Thank you for your support !
    • Does this mean the X-T40 is a dead issue permanently or is their still hope for one? Some say the X-S10 is actually it, Ken Wheeler for one, but the dials and style are not for me. Have an X-T30 and was hoping for an X-T40 with IBIS and other improvements.  
    • Just wondering if there is a grip that works with it. Thanks
