    H5D-200MS single versus multishot difference

    OK so its raining outside and to alleviate the boredom, I thought I would try and see how great the differences are between a single shot taken with the Hassy 200MS, i.e. a 50mp shot, rezzed up to the same size as a shot taken immediately afterwards using the full resolution of this camera.

    Not great conditions - 32 sec exposure in tungsten light for each shot (so a very long time to complete the 6 shot multishot).

    Completely unscientific. Identical settings and a touch of sharpening for each in Photoshop. 24mm lens used.

    First, a small crop from the standard 50mp shot, upscaled to 200% in Photoshop (not optimum, just standard preserve details - if I were doing this for real, I'd use Photozoom Pro)



    Next, a small crop from centre of the Multishot, native resolution.

    That's a pretty dramatic difference, especially considering the exposure time and lighting conditions. Will be interesting to see how the new CMOS iteration of multishot will help in situations like this.

    Agreed. However I doubt the use of a CMOS chip will affect resolution. It might affect colour, something I like about the CCD chip in the 200MS. Note also the complete absence of moire in the multishot crop.

    Its all a little depressing, because all that resolution is only accessible when shooting completely static subjects - and it is so addictive

    Nice comparison. I especially note the difference in aliasing, various aliasing artifacts in the 50 shot and nothing in the 200 shot.

    Re: H5D-200MS single versus multishot difference

    And if anyone is interested, here is a link to a full resolution of a Church interior shot taken today using the 200Ms in full 6 shot mode. Focus is on the Altar. Lens used was a HC50 II @ F11, around 3 sec exposure at 50ISO. Bear in mind this would print at 40.9 inches x 54.5 inches @300ppi with no interpolation. Warning, this is a 55mp download even as a compressed jpeg.

    None of this is of the least bit of use to the landscape photographer, of course

    Re: H5D-200MS single versus multishot difference

    I have taken three identical shots using single shot, 4 shot and full 6 shot capture, and beloew I will post the links to the files for samples taken from each shot.

    The lens used was the HC-50 II, tripod mounted (of course). There are some lighting differences because these images were taken using natural light. A 0.6 ND grad was used right side side to balance the light, and some shadow / highlight correction used in Photoshop to bring up the shadows slightly.

    The single shot capture and the 4 shot multi-shot were each interpolated to the same size as the 6-shot, 200mp image, using Photozoom pro. No sharpening was applied. I have only linked to the samples, because of image file size restrictions on this forum

    Here is the main shot




    Next, a link to the Single Shot Capture sample:

    Then the 4-Shot capture:

    Finally, the big banana, the 6 shot capture

    It's amazing how the 4 shoot already take care of the color artifacts.
    The 6 Shoot it's eye opening.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Best regards,

    Re: H5D-200MS single versus multishot difference

    I think in isolation, the single shot capture is pretty good (bearing in mind that it has been upsized to match the 6 shot capture, with no sharpening). However you can see moire on the bale of string, some on the wall, everywhere when you start to look for it. The sad truth is bayer type sensors are riddled with colour errors compared to to a sensor with no colour interpolation. We have just become used to it.

    What you get with the 4 shot is a complete absence of moire. This is like a Foveon sensor image on steroids. And at 6 shots, even more detail.

    The six shot image would print at 54.5 x 41 inches approx @300pi without interpolation. But the 4 shot image is more practical.
