Hi Rez with Em5ii - photos
10

Had a lot of fun with the Hi rez feature today.  Did some multishots that I stitched together in Lightroom.  One ended up as a 130mp jpeg.

This is resized of course.  12 hi rez photos stitched.  Up Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish. BC

This one is full size single shot.

It would be fun to see peoples  hi rez shots.

Great idea.....

Hi Mike

Great work, congrats. I sold my EM5 II when I bought my Pen F at the time. Interesting I always missed it. Then when the MKIII was launched last year a flood MKII came onto the 2nd market.....no need to say I am now the proud owner again....

I see you have -1.3EV exposure comp, does the camera do that when in multi exposure? If you did that on purpose you might like to try ETTR, especially when doing landscapes. As little as +0,5 EV can add lots of workable data to your image. See the link to my blog below, I wrote an article on that.....

Great idea show casing high res shots.... will go do one in the morning....

In bright light we had no trouble having a person in the picture. Of course no action.

Thanks for the link. Very interesting.

I was trying to expose so as to not lose detail in the snow on the mountain tops. To be honest I should be more up on the technical end of things considering how long I've been in to photography. Been too lazy with it I guess.

My main reason for using M4/3 as well
2

I use extensively too. Especially landscape with very good success. Especially G9 after latest FW update. I have EM5ii and 2xEM1ii as well and for high res G9 is quite a bit better.

I have posted many on these forums.

Yes, people on these forums are not excited by High Res features and talks more about AF, BIF, low lights etc. I haven't completely or exclusively use M4/3. I have in my bag G9 with battery grip and either A7Rii or A7Riii with battery grip and use adapters which both can share FF lenses.

For me it's a big deal. I have money for A7Riv but decided to wait for G10 or something of M4/3 from Panasonic.

Excellent photos.  Architecture and Art are great subjects for Hi Rez I would imagine.  Brought back memories.  I went through Italy back in 1980.

How to record more good image data

Mike I don't think there are hard rules.... I think the main thing is... you the artist at the point you take the image and you ending your work in-front of your PC.....

That said, one suggestion - looking at the above image consider this..... the snow is the smaller percentage of the image and the trees, water, mountains 80% plus.

You basically exposed for the snow which is of little value if they white or white with details?

Where you like better data is the shadows and mid tones. What I explain in my article is shifting the histogram to the right will enable your camera to record more image data (tonal data) because we know most tonal data is recorded in the highlights (right side of the histogram)

Try one of your next images....let the show selectively blow out and see if you can get half or even a full stop ETTR and test if you get more detail in the trees to play with....

Best

Siegfried

In what way(s) is the G9 quite a bit better than the EM1.2, please?

Mode 2 of High Res mode 2 leaves no ghosting and only less details locally where things are moving, which should be very small portion of your image in reality. Olympus can't handle anything that moves. I thought EM1.3 High Res was going to be as good or better but from what I have seen no. Just the post processing in camara between Oly and Panny. I have both EM1.2 and G9 maybe EM1X is different in camera algorithm to EM1.2 and EM1.3 but for sure G9 algorithm is better. FW update could fix but not sure internal hardware of EM1.2 is too old now.

I think it's more important to be able to focus?

- I am trying a G9 currently and was surprised at how bad the CAF on the G9 really is, especially in video mode - its OK if you have a MF person running alongside you

- Thing is if you used to the EM1 II amazing focus then its difficult to get used to the G9

- Personally I also think IBIS on Olympus is a step ahead...

- The G9 is HUGE & heavy - with the EM1 at least I have the choice to keep it small and compact or add a bottom plate and have it the same size as a G9

- And that huge EVF - awful - the sides are bend you need to squeeze against the side of the EVF to see it all, especially the bend sides - with the EM1 you can have your eye a little away and still see it all fantastically....

Does this all matter - no....its really all up to personal choice & needs, whats good for me might be horrible to the next guy....

So why even start the stupid argument you made? Most important you add NOTHING of value or support to the OP request for having fun and post images.....

I agree

the hi rez mode on the G9 is amazing - plus the size, ergonomics and menu setup are close to perfect

the only way the Olympus is better is if you need phase detect focus for birds in flight with busy distracting backgrounds.

Those blues in the sky......

Is the image out the camera or did you edit it?

Panasonic always had a thing with blue skies it has always been difficult to get right, I thought the G9 was better or at least that is what I experienced..... could be the multi shot that adds the purple cast?

I don't disagree with you and with the M4/3lenses I have, which are mostly Olympus, anything that moves fast that I want to shoot, I will either take EM1.2 or Sony RX10iv.

how did you stabilize the camera?

Thank you for sharing your high-res photos!

How do you stabilize your EM5ii? Did you carry a tripod while hiking? Or did you stabilize you camera somehow differently?

(I am attracted to the resolution gain for outdoor/nature shots, however carrying a tripod is a big downside for me)
