    Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t Olympus introduce this with the OMD EM1X?

    Sounds wonderful but one can do frame averaging with any camera; it just takes a few steps in Photoshop. I recently got interested in this because I was considering one of the super wide zooms which do not allow simple use of filters. I ultimately changed my mind about the superwide, for now, and am sticking with my 16-35 which does take filters. Phase One makes beautiful gear but the thought of needing a $50k camera to do it is not reasonable for most of us. More power to those who can afford it. I’m only a doctor, not a dentist :-).

    I am surprised that only a few manufacturers implement frame averaging in cameras. While it is possible to do it in the post, it is quite cumbersome to do it with a larger number of images.

    Olympus and Pentax have cameras that implement frame averaging in cameras. Nikon’s DSLRs can use multiple exposures as frame averaging. AFAIK, only Olympus and Phase One implement gapless frame-averaging, which is often necessary for smooth movements.

    Note that Olympus is limited to 32 images, while Phase One and Pentax have a much larger max number of frames that can be averaged.
