Handheld High Resolution mode of the new Pentax K-1II

Share

Pentax announced the new K1II. It’s news that matters for us because it finally proves that handheld resolution mode is technically possible. This is how it works:

It uses the natural shake of your hands to collect the four images needed to combine them into a single high-res image. So far we have not found anyone who tested this but if it works it’s a big news. Both Olympus and Panasonic could add this feature on the next generation cameras like the E-M5III wchich is rumored to be launched at Photokina.

Interview with the Panasonic G9 developers: “if necessary we will consider using new sensor formats”

Share

DC.watch (link to part 1 and part 2) interviewed the team of G9 developers.

– In Japan the camera name is “G9 PRO”. In the rest of the world it’s “G9”

– De interviewers said he would like to see the G9 technology on other sensor formtas (speak Full Frame). Panasonic answer is (google translated):

At the moment we think that there are technologies that will continue to evolve and polish even in Micro Four Thirds. If there are lots of such users’ comments in the future, it may be necessary to consider various choices, but as soon as you start up the format you will be watching over all systems. So I think the hurdle is quite high.

– These are the different 3D printed mockups to study the G9 handling:
