Sony’s 61-megapixel A7R IV caused quite the splash when it was announced, becoming the highest resolution full-frame camera out there. Canon’s ageing 50-megapixel 5DS and 5DSR bodies were the previous champions, but they’re getting a little long in the tooth. According to a report on Canon Rumors, though, Canon is preparing to reclaim the throne with an 80+ megapixel EOS R body.
Recently Canon Watch reported that Canon will be announcing two new EOS R models in 2019. It had also been suggested that at least one full frame DSLR model had been shelved in favour of a mirrorless option. It was speculated that this model might be the EOS 5DS/5DSR. Now, new word via Canon Rumors seems to back up this fact.[Read More…]
The scientists of Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany have developed a new algorithm. It enhances low-res images so that they miraculously become hi-res and sharp. It only needs a single low-resolution input, and it will increase its resolution while retaining the realistic textures and details.
The D800 has been regarded as an exceptional camera ever since its release in 2012. Some of its strongest selling points were (and continue to be in the D810) its dynamic range, ISO capabilities and superb resolution.
Three years after its release and the discontinued model just got an excellent new feature – 8K real time video!
A new technique called quicklapse creates the super-high resolution video my bypassing Nikon’s limitation of 100 photos in continuous mode and then interpolating the frames in post production to fill the gaps.
Obviously Nikon isn’t responsible for this addition, though. Miguel de Olaso (aka Macgregor), an award-winning director of photography from Los Angeles, and Art Sanchez, an architecture and interior design photographer from Spain, are to thank.
