    Shot my first test of pixel shift today. It was quite easy and the pixel shift software was easy to use and didn’t take as long as I would expect. Took 54 seconds to process the 16 RAW files into a DNG. The resulting file was 1.4 GB. The resolution is of course nuts. Finally found something that chokes C1 and my i9 CPU/32 GB RAM. I like to make very large prints so for the right subject, under the right conditions I could imagine this will be a great tool.

    Pixel shift is the bomb! For what it’s worth Fuji left out some important information in their literature. Pixel shift mode changes and number of things including the shutter so that exposures that work with flash in single shot mode may not with in multi shot mode. They recommend 1/5 sec for flash sync in multi shot mode but I’ve found I have to lower it to half a second to get it to sync with my strobes. FYI!

    My experience was similar.  Quite something.   Not that I’ll be doing much pixelshifting.  I think for the right subject and if there’s a particular printed outcome needed it’s nice to have the option.

    In the meantime enjoying the ability to crop down to a 50Mp image.
