DPReview makes me chuckle: S5 High Res feature is "amazing"?
13

I gotta give DPReview a little credit. They made me laugh and we can all benefit from laughs these days, right?

Their review of the Panasonic S5 gushes over the tripod high res feature that blends 8 images and delivers a 96MPx image. It even delivers "A JPEG IMAGE!!!" that "CAN DEAL WITH SOME SUBJECT MOTION!!!" Amazing.

here are their words:

the high-res shots show a distinct detail advantage and, because they're made from multiple images, there's a noise benefit at higher ISO values.

Meanwhile, static portions of the scene benefit immensely from additional detail and less noise. We think that of all the high-res modes on the market today, Panasonic's is the one to beat.

I guess the reviewer didn't realize the latest EM1s have been doing this HANDHELD!!! for quite a while. Indeed, I have really taken advantage of the HHHR since I got the EM1x.

Makes me laugh though, thanks DPReview:-)
