In the Field with the Pentax K-1 and SuperRes Pixel Shift Mode

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

See my in-depth review of the Pentax K-1 and lenses.

Who says you can’t shoot wildlife with the Pentax K-1 in SuperRes pixel shift mode? This lizard was kind enough to pose for me. Well, not very 'wild', in movement that is. The detail rendition of this shot taken in SuperRes pixel shift mode is stunning.

I’ve some days ahead of me on my trip, but when I return I’ll be continuing my K-1 coverage with field shots and comparisons with the Nikon D810. A reader was kind enough to loan me his Zeiss ZK 28mm f/2 Distagon (Pentax K mount version, same optics as ZF.2 version for Nikon). which means I can shoot the 28/2 Distagon on Nikon and Pentax for direct comparison (plus the Otus 28/1.4). I think more than a few readers will find that very interesting.

From what I see, the dynamic range of the Pentax K-1 sets a new high water mark that no other camera can match (at least in SuperRes mode). That’s because the 4-exposure SuperRes mode effectively cuts noise in half or so—unbeatable.

This image aggressively processed to span a range of brightness. Processed on my laptop in the field, it is hard for me to assess but at full resolution the detail looks outstanding.

The Pentax K-1 shines for still life photography, where its SuperRes pixel shift mode not only yields the finest DSLR image quality available, it sure looks like the finest black and white camera available today.
