I have been seeing rewarding improvements in resolution along with ultra low noise using the Multi-Shot High-Res mode of the Panasonic S1R, covered and shown in detail in diglloyd L-Mount Mirrorless. And I have finally found the well hidden way to get the magnification I need for manual focusing.
Last night I wondered if I could obtain HighRes images at the 135mm focal length. My concern was that such long focal lengths magnify the tiniest movement. There was a light breeze and it concerned me that even the wind could also be an issue, in the sense of its pressure moving the camera a fraction of a pixel or so while exposing (I shield the camera whenever possible but I can’t shield the tripod also). Those concerns are surely valid under some conditions, but on this occasion I was able to make some incredibly detailed images.
Includes images at sizes up to 47, 100, 187 megapixels.
Below, this image when viewed at 187 megapixels clearly defines the fuzz on the aspen flowers (where in focus).
