Examples: Checkerboarding Issues with Pixel Shift

These page shows examples of checkerboarding when pixel shift goes wrong—frequently.

Most images are pairs of pixel shift and single-frame images. Toggle to compare.

Old Car Scene

I shot an entire aperture series using pixel shift of this scene, but efery pixel shift frame at every aperture was overlaid with checkerboarding in its entirety—what a shame as it is an idea scene for pixel shift, with very fine detail and long exposure and deep shadow.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
