    E-M5 Mark II "digital keystone compensation" feature

    Dear forum members,

    Wouldn't it be great if the "digital keystone compensation" feature was coupled to the camera gyroscopes roll or pitch data? That would basically allow to digitally "shift" the lens when tilting the camera up or down.

    best,

    Do you mean shift the sensor up/down? Like a variation on the movement it does for the 40Mpixel mode?
    I don't think it can move the sensor far enough, but I could be wrong.

    Or are you thinking some kind of electronic shift lens? - That would be a first I think.

    What I mean is taking the existing "digital keystone compensation" feature of the E-M5 Mark II and E-M1 (introduced with firmware 2.0, detailed explanation here: http://thedigitalstory.com/2014/11/h...n-omd-em1.html), but instead of having to dial in the compensation factor manually, like it is necessary now, the camera could use the gyroscope data to check how far "up" or "down" the camera is tilted, and then automatically use the result as the compensation factor. That would factually be a "digital shift" lens.

    (The sensor movement could not be used, since it's probably not more than 1 or 2 mm)

    best,

    Ok, I get it now. With just a little bit of sensor res loss. Maybe 5%?
    It would be a good idea for architectural users.

    Yes, resolution would not be a problem if you combine it with the Mark IIs HighRes Multishot mode, since this feature would only be used with a tripod anyway.
