prossi: So OMD EM5II sensor can 'twerk'... what happens when you need IBIS to just do IBIS?

There will probably be many limitations. The technique will be primarily for landscapes, macros, portraits. My guess is that IBIS will have to be turned off in such case, to allow sensor shift. No sports action.

jhinkey: Well, I hope there are more advantages to this than just getting increased resolution. There are only a handful of native m43 lenses that can handle 40MP of true resolution. Hopefully there are some dynamic range advantages that come along with this.

You do not understand the process. The camera will take 8 images while slightly changing the position of the receiving 16 MP sensor. It will then combine all those images into a single one, using the extra data obtained by shifting the sensor slightly to the sides and up/down. You will get nicer lines and extra image data will appear because the Bayer sensor limitations will no longer apply, you will be having red and blue photodiodes moved to where previously you only had green ones. So extra image information will be available to reconstruct the true image. No more guessing.

Robiro: Please share with us how you made this shot.

Thank you so much! Those are paper wasps and they live under my roof. I have frequent contact with them. Check my macro album, there are many wasp shots in it.
I even held one of them on my finger!
And this is the best head shot I got (but yours is much better):
I only use ordinary flash. Will have to invest in better lighting equipment!
Again, thanks a lot for sharing your know-how!

On Beautiful Eyes challenge (23 comments in total)

I would like to complain about the administrator of this challenge. I posted a cat eye picture which fully complied with the challenge rules: "Send the photoes of Beautiful eyes. Only Eyes, Not full face.The face should not be able to identify.Macros of single Eye is Ok. B&w or Colour."

This macro cat eye picture was groundlessly disqualified! On the other hand, pictures showing identifiable FULL FACES were LEFT in the challenge, although they go clearly AGAINST the challenge rules.

I hereby launch a complaint against how this challenge is being run! The specifications do NOT say posting animal eyes is prohibited!

Link to my disqualified picture:

Or, if you disqualify anybody, please next time provide the reason for disqualification. "Your entry 'Cat's f22 equivalent' has been disqualified from the challenge called 'Beautiful Eyes' for the following reason: -- no reason provided by host --"

Would have been a five star shot had you not cropped that wheel! But still, quite beautiful!
