Re: Hi Res

Hi Dave,

Is that a image from a poster/book .... Remember Posters/Books tend to be printed as a series of dots at 300/600/1200 dpi etc .... so I would not expect the hi res one to be better.

Try a landscape shot and compare.

Dave

Re: Hi Res

OK, here goes.
Straight JPG cropped.


Hi Res cropped.

Both imported into LR, no editing apart from cropped to 816 pixels.
Not sure if it is my imagination but the Hi res does seem better. Correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Hi Res

Any idea why I cannot stop down further than f8 when using Hi Res?

Its in the instructions somewhere... that's as far as you can go.

Edit: If I remember correctly that's the "sweet spot" for depth of field and diffraction avoidance.

Re: Hi Res

Glad you added labels they look the same to me?

Re: Hi Res

High-res sample definitely much better.
I have had sensational results with it, though I haven't used it much. I even did a focus stack of high-res shots of some dead bug. Lot of work, but mind boggling clarity! I do a lot more with focus stacking, but not in camera. I take raw and process on the computer. More control that way, but more work

Re: Hi Res

Does IBIS work with hi-res and if so has anyone managed to take a hi res shot handheld?

Re: Hi Res

The sensor moves by 1/2 pixel increments. A solid tripod is a prerequisite for high-res, though I think I saw something about the new X being able to do high-res hand held. Believe it when I see it.

Yep, the 1X apparently can do hi res hand held. I understand how hi-res works but as far as being able to do it hand held I would imagine this would be down to whether IBIS still works during hi-res shooting, and how long it takes to take the hi-res image. They are now saying that with the combined IS with a lens like the 12-100mm f4 you now get 6.5 stops of IS allowing you to take shots up to 5s hand held, which suggests to me that hi-res shots take less than 5s to complete.

It would be interesting to know if the ability of the 1X to take hi res is actually due to the hardware or whether it's software. If it's the latter then it may filter down to the EM1-II with an update.

Re: Hi Res

According to one of the videos posted here, the X uses normal human movement to achieve the handheld 50Mp composite image and it switches the IS on and off between and during shots to achieve that. Sounds plausible and quite a few people are now posting examples it seems.
