Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
NEW for Sony is a Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode that uses the IS system to take four exposures of the same scene, while shifting the sensor precisely one pixel between each. It records four ARW raw files, which can be combined on a computer using Sony’s new Imaging Edge software to deliver a composite file with full- colour sampling at each pixel. This can then be developed to give an image with higher detail, more accurate colours and improved tonality. One disadvantage is that the camera has to wait a second between frames, which is likely to cause problems in scenes where anything is moving. But similar systems give great results on Pentax and Olympus cameras, so it’ll be interesting to see what the Alpha 7R III can achieve.
