showmeyourpics: Hi, I seriously wonder what's behind all this push back aimed at pixel shift technology. The proven facts are: with static subjects (= several fields of photography), I can get captures that rival FF cameras (plus no moire) with gear that is a fraction of the size, weight and price. With judicious post processing, I can reach the same results with subjects with some motion (i.e.: many landscapes and cityscapes subjects). I already do all this with my E-M5ii and Oly pro lenses, and have the pictures to prove it. This technology is at its early stages of implementation and is bound to evolve quickly. Since it is a natural offspring of existing, refined IS systems, it is not imposing a premium price on the cameras that offer it. So, what's not to love about it? Photographers' only hard decision is choosing if they want to use it or not. Could the push back be just good old envy?

that's the point...but it's so difficult to admit that a brand, pentax, that many dismisses as inferior, as produced the toll that any canikon user of d810 and 5d simply wanted.
a camera with better IQ even at normal use, wifi gps and tens other feature for landscaper, sold at 1799...the price at which canon sold plastic toys and nikon sell the d500 at 2000 dollar!!

happy them..i m happy i can use the best camera out there at the monet apart medium format.

VisualFX: Pixel shift is just a mid-technology kludge, until higher resolutions image sensors become more affordable and mainstream. I would never rely on it, even for supposedly "static" scenes, since there is always some amount of movement in landscape scenes. What is needed is more dense sensors.

Not risolve nothing...cause thei will be 100 milion Bayer pixel....only dove in can salve this but is too limite e in use....pixel shift can essi ly Used, water fall is a vera hard situation for Ps....Usi g pixel shift and some masking in photoshop can already produce IMAGES near medium format.

MLP120: A question to the experts. I am going to be setting up a small studio for product photography which of course will be a controlled environment. I have mostly Nikon and was going to purchase the D-810 but I am thinking that with this K-1 and results closer to medium format, is it a better choice for studio shots? My studio will be LED lighting and not strobes so that should work best with the pixel shift, correct? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Bhphotovideo

D810 plus nick or 105: 3600 dolla

K1 plus 100 macro and 50 macro: 2450 dollar

The differen e U are nera To buy a second body To back u, or the 24-70

In My opinion if u don't need the faster af for sport the k1 is a much rounded camera compared To nikon. Tons of features , rugged like or better than a d5
...if u work mostly in studio and tripod the k1 also can adjust the composition moving the sensor in every direction...this is the MOST underrated features and one that let u use a ball head with the feature of cube head that cost a lot of dollar

Most of negative comments from canikon user ... Strange))... Better stick with canon full frame 11 ev of dybamic poorange...

Pixel shift is aplus and it works in many conditions not all. It must be used for best enlargement when you can and want spend a bit of time in pp to mask little problem.

Its a plus... A great one who make this canera in many circumstances above medium format camera that cost much more.

If you not want use there is normal
Mode who give sane iq or better than d810, and much better than any canon ... All for half the price

Smitty1: One way to use this would be to take the PixShift image then another regular shot. Blend in photoshop. At least then you get the detail in the non-moving portions of the scene.

chris.....you were looking objectively to something using a tool not designed for the task. i'm sorry this is unprofessional at best and you are a website read buy lot of people. you should take this article of and redo with other raw developer.
i shoot many landscape with tree not moving. clearly is not a technology that can beuse100% but as already stated it's easy to paint in photoshop in different layer, for some images it can be the solution. in many other cases cityscape at nigh architecture it will improve the images to a level the d810 cannot even compete.
Your article show color artifact due to your error, and now many people will consider this a failed technology, while i see only your behavior failing away.....this is the second time, first a test with a poor lens not clearly aligned....then this....damage is done, smart people will understand lot of people will dismiss the camera

pretty simple but too much to explain for people in dpreview..i know i can use it in many case blending images and increasing sharpness . in addiction waterfall is something really impossible to handle by a pixel shift technology, try any other landscape.

philzucker: If this source can be trusted - http://diglloyd.com/blog/2016/20160516_2152-PentaxK1-MotionCorrection-ACR.html - Adobe doesn't support motion correction at all in the moment. So the question is why you did your tests with ACR?

The software Pentax provides - the "Digital Camera Utility" as they call it - allows motion correction (MC) after the fact on pixel shift raw files (or - the other way round - to process files taken with MC on without MC). For me that means that for raw processing MC is just a tag - that can be read to process the files automatically in the desired mode - but does not change the raw files at all.

waterfall..you can simply use one of the original raw ana paint the waterfall with 10 second of photoshop...any serious landscaper work on their photos...with pixel shift you have super sharp images where it is important , detail that cannot be produced in software.
you can do different exposure, one long to blur water....pixel shift can help in reaching the best sharpness using creativity...r in case you cannot use it , still have the same quality of any nikon d810 800 and more...b

tomgreenep: The green and magenta artifacts are completely handled in Pentax's Silkypix RAW program.

and this is already stated in any pentax forum...i'm surprised that preview didn't know this and then say" we are disappointed...".

this k1 is really menacing the big guy....

AbrasiveReducer: People are jealous because Trey goes to beautiful and interesting places and uses his skills to turn them into beautiful and interesting places. He's no Ken Rockwell or even Gary Fong, but he has sensational self-promotion skills which are just as important as being able to take a beautiful photo of something that's beautiful.

this is not a travel photographer. he 's a postcard photographer. i you don't know what means being a travel photographer, is your problem. this guy has zero credit in industry, zero award, zero publications.
He's not about being jealous man, he's about being critic and know the industry pretty well.
you clearly don't have a clue and answer like a child of 10 years.

jonny1976: internet era makes this boring, amateur more famous in many places than steve mccurry or magnum photographer...i call it the ignorant era.

P.S. i wrote once he charge 10000 dollar for a workshop...those who paid this to attend a workshop oaf a guy shooting cliche photos, same postcard as thousand of amateur, who never goes in depth when travel just the same places you can find alone buying a lonely planet. should be jailed for life.

he's not jealousy i travel and work for magazine i go in places trey will never go, cause if you watch carefully he simply goes same places as amateur go...dubai, singapore ,venice...he's a genius of marketing for sure, as photographer is normal, cause nowadays everybody can take this kind of picture. Kudos to him but when you take of the talk, the picture are simply postcard already heavily take since the last 40 years.
To go in essaouira and shoot what he shot, is something everybody can do, to take photos that magnum photographer or top notch photographer take you need to be skilled and most of all not scared as hell if a local ak to see our camera...that part of the video show how nerdish this guy is, and i don't even comment the ugly and pathetic photos of google sunglasses , clearly made to advertise this product.

he takes cliche photos like thousand of amateur. he has portfolio you can find in every 500 px or flickr account. He travel in places always shooting the same postcard, cooking it with HDR.
He's not a case like, ming then and other web photographer, he needs a lot of blogging and talking to have a chance in photo industry, cause when your photo don't speak for themselves you need to talk. i was many time in morocco and he not even scratched the surface of this beautiful country. He has win zero award, he has zero editorial presence apart some magazine that self promote this kind of photographer.
What surprises me is that many follow this guy and don't even know for example PJ HARVEY from magnum....and magnum workshop cost 3000' dollar he ask 15000 for a workshop...those who pay this sum to learn photography by this guy should be hospitalized.

TheDarmok74: Lots of commonplace philosophy in his words.
What amazes me is how these photographers work these days - they want to build a name and reputation for themselves yet they really work for the industry, only they don't tell you that. Where has the pride gone to be eg a Time photographer or National Geographic guy? These videos are often very nice but they are really commercials.

what surprise e me more is that lot of talented genius master of reportage documentary winner of the most important award struggle to find economic support and people like this and some other i forgot, with a buungch of postcard built a million dollar business.
i'm sure 99 % of those who follow this guy don't even know 4 member of magnum agency,.
