Im kinda jealous that folks with hi res mode could use a crop of a high res shot if subject was still. If oly wasnt bye bye they might have come out with low loss digital zoom this way eventually

You can make high resolution shots with any camera by doing the work in post. All that the in-camera modes do is make it more convenient

Making it more convenient is the main point. You can also do digital zoom in post, but it's not nearly the same experience as it being a button away in camera.

Same thing with HDR modes. Smartphones make it so convenient (and does a good enough job of removing artifacts) that it can easily be used as the default mode. Camera makers haven't been able to do the same. The in camera ones don't do anywhere near as good a job removing artifacts, and using bracketing to do it in post is involves much more work.

No wonder smartphones are eating camera makers' lunches.
