Took delivery of a CF/39 Multishot recently, and during the dealer training session in my studio we did some comparison shots. Thought some of you would be interested in the results.
This is about as perfect a test as can be done for comparisons ... literally everything is exactly the same. Same camera and lens, same sensor, same lighting. Nothing is touched. The only difference is selecting the Multi-Shot toggle button in the Phocus software to tell the camera to shoot Multi-Shot instead of Single Shot ... and hitting the shoot button on the software.
While I have commissioned many photographers for product work that used Multi-Shot cameras, this is the first time I've owned one and shot with it myself.
Side-by-side 200% crops tell the story. While the full sized shot of both look fine, pixel peeping reveals some interesting differences ... like the color on the pink dot.
Over-all, in many cases it probably wouldn't matter ... but I shoot a lot of fabrics for auto catalogs where both detail and accurate color is important ... or product details that includes tiny type, etc. Plus, on some jobs clients crop out pieces of a shot for use larger than initially intended.
Net impression ... I should have got into MS a long time ago.
