Aperture Series: Burghers of Calais (Pentax K-1 SuperRes, Color and BW)
This scene is an all-arounder: bokeh across the aperture range, sharpness and micro contrast, and color vs black and white from the K1.
SuperRes pixel shift mode of the Pentax K1 was used, for maximum image quality.
Especially when viewed on the iMac 5K, the black and white image is jaw dropping in its contrast and superfine detail right down to the pixel—no conventional demosaicing here.
Image sizes up to 28 megapixels along with large crops provide a detailed look at the “whole package” (lens and camera).

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.
