  • Hand held hi res - It's fabulous !

    I took a few shots today at LCE in Leamington with the E-M1x. I was keen to try out the new hand held hi-res (HHHR). It really does work. I took a few shots inside the shop where the lighting was pretty poor. The following shot was at ISO 1000, 1/160s and f4:



    And here are three crops from a part of the image. First is the hi-res JPG (oversharpened by the camera IMHO), second is the hi-res raw, third is the lo-res raw:

    SOOC JPEG HiRes:


    Hi Res raw. Sharpened to taste in LR:


    Lo Res raw. My default sharpening:


    So, a few observations:

    - Hi res image is not only higher res, but it's got a lot less noise
    - Raw file needs more sharpening to get it to look good (at least in LR)
    - SOOC JPEG is horribly oversharpened

    I took a few shots of people in the shop too and it worked pretty well too. Definitely usable for posed portraits. This is HHHR of a customer standing at the counter. 1/50s ISO 1000 :



    I don't think it's necessary or desirable for portraits though, but for landscapes - this is a fantastic feature. I'm really hoping it makes it into the E-M5iii.

      No - too big (and too expensive).

        Looks like the processing of multiple images also deals with the noise rather nicely.

          Pretty impressive I have to say.

          How was the EVF?

            I didn't notice any real difference over the E-M1ii.

              I forgot all about the new EVF optics when I went to try and it was only after I had left the shop that I realized that I hadn't noticed any difference!

                I thought the EVF gave a bigger view, but it's not a great difference.

                    You could also add the Fuji X-H1 and XT-3 to the list.
                    Shame about the EVF, it doesn't send a great signal out because I'm sure they would have had access to a higher resolution panel.

                    My G9 EVF is much nicer than the my E-M1 MkII with the exception of the slight pin cushion effect which you soon forget.
