Pixel Shift Multi Shoot­ing

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

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.
