Sony A7R V Pixel Shift + Voigtlander FE 35mm f/2 APO: Comparing Pixel Shift to Single Shot (Huge Laurel at Bend in Alpine Creek)
re: Sony pixel shift
The huge confounder with Sony pixel shift has long been motion artifacts and/or changes in lighting that cause checkerboarding patterns. But with the release of the Sony A7R V and Sony motion correction, 4-shot pixel shift now a viable shooting approach even outdoors, shooters looking to get 120 megapixel performance out of the 60MP sensor should be using pixel shift whenever possible.
This page looks at the differences in sharpness and micro contrast with pixel shift vs a single-shot frame on a highly detailed landscape scene, at f/4.5, f/5.6, f/8.
Includes images from f/4.5 to f/8 in both pixel shift and single-shot mode on the Sony A7R V at sizes up to full sensor resolution plus 90-megapixel sizes.
For many types of photography, the Sony A7R V is the most important camera in years because of Sony motion correction with pixel shift, even setting aside its other improvements (fantastic EVF, AI-AF, 8K video, etc).
