Enhancing old photos in Lightroom
5

Today I did a little experiment: Using Lightroom to "enhance" (upscale) an old 3008 x 2008 pixels photo taken with a 6mp *ist DS—just to see what would happen. The result was a 6016x4016 pixels photo, nearly the same size as my 6000x4000 pixels 24 mp K-3 gives. Not too shabby, eh? Especially when one considers the shot was taken with the original 18-55 kit lens. It was captured one summer sundown in front of our cabin on Lake Superior back in 2007.

Now I think I'll get that *ist DS out of mothballs and start using it again, especially with the supersharp 300mm f4.5 Pentax-F I acquired for birding with a K-5. The DS's small size would make it appealing as a backup traveling camera, even with that 18-55.
