Diglloyd: Panasonic S1R High-Res Mode: the Largest Advance in Image Quality in a Decade

Diglloyd has reviewed the Panasonic S1R's high res mode and found it to be excellent and made the following statement about it;

Cameras with pixel shift are prone to severe and prominent artifacts like checkerboarding that are just about impossible to deal with, making pixel shift pretty much useless for field shooting, a finding from long experience and true of Pentax and Sony pixel shift (I have probably 50GB of ruined Pentax and Sony pixel shift files).

But the Panasonic S1R uses an 8-frame multi-shot high-res mode approach that performs in-camera merging of those 8 frames into single raw file with size equivalent to four frames. A smart merge, not a dumb-recording science fair project like Pentax and Sony.

For the first time besides an iPhone, I’m seeing a pro-grade field-usable computational photography feature. Huge kudos to Panasonic for unf**king what the other guys could not get right.

The Panasonic S1R at a glance;

  • 47.3MP Full-Frame MOS Sensor
  • Venus Engine Image Processor
