Went out for a photowalk with my 645 AFD II, Aptus 65S MFDB and a new 210/4 ULD lens yesterday evening. Shot in the evening during the golden hour using ISO400 (yeah, noisy )
Here's what I dont get:
I'm having issues with image sharpness, and it's driving me crazy.
See http://500px.com/photo/1378566, http://500px.com/photo/1378842, and http://500px.com/photo/1379245 to get an idea of what I mean
I'm uploading the pics now to Flickr so I can link the images directly into a later post, but what's getting my goat now is that the 100% crops are terrible. shutter speeds were in the range of 1/125 to 1/320 shot wide open.
Is this something I should expect from this setup, given that I was shooting handheld, or am I doing something wrong?
On a related note, based on what I've read online about the Aptus 65S, I should have the option to capture as a 16-bit HDR image (150+ MB), a 16-bit RAW HDR image (approx 53MB), or a Lossless compressed RAW (approx 31MB). Going through the camera settings, I only have None and Lossless under the compression settings.
Question: is there any benefit to capturing it to the 150MB format (and how do I do that?), or should I just stick with the normal RAW format (53MB per file)?
