Pentax K1 SuperRes Res Mode: Motion Correction Feature with Adobe Camera Raw and Pentax Digital Camera Utility

See my Pentax K1 wish list at B&H Photo.

Updated to include both Adobe Camera Raw and Pentax Digital Camera Utility.

Whether Pentax K1 SuperRes Motion Correction works or not is a critical factor; if SuperRes MC works well, then the K1 thus becomes an eminently usable camera for landscape photography.

But if SuperRes_MC does not work (or works badly), then the K1 is relegated to scenes (indoors or out) in which the subject does not move even slightly, because the risks of hyper ugly out-of-register pixellation effects are unacceptable, as shown below.

I’ve now answered the “works or does not work” question definitively for both Adobe Camera Raw 9.5.1 (595) as well as Pentax Digital Camera Utility 5 (SilkyPix).

Pentax K1 SuperRes Pixel Shift Mode: Does Motion Correction Work?

In the article above, I show the full image up to 28 megapixels, as well as several large crops, all with StdRes, SuperRes and SuperRes + Motion Correction.

Below, from Adobe Camera Raw, compare SuperRes without Motion Correction to StdRes (single shot mode). Support for Motion Correction is essential, but ACR does not support it, at least not yet. Pentax Digital Camera Utility does support Motion Correction however.

Motion Correction is essential with SuperRes mode; here is what it looks like when not corrected by the raw converter:
