A 36 megapixels image from Sony A7s


A 36 megapixels image, not with the Sony A7r , but with the a7s. It’s the result of a series of photos taken handheld and stitched together with Autopano Pro software. It’s quite easy to do that, especially on images where there is no movement.

I find 12 megapixel to be enough for most situations, but it’s good to have the opportunity to create a larger resolution image when I need to and I don’t have with me the Nikon D800E.

Here’s a crop from the image above.

    It depends.
    Really stitching doesn’t give more resolution but file size.
    The image is ok. In my opinion it would be better with a closer aperture ; the background seems not so sharp.

      For the very large prints I make (over 3 metes long) stitching is necessary , it gives you the megapixels needed to print at 300dpi. For images up to 1 meter, the D800E is more than sufficient.

    Perhaps a medium format sensor…

    D800E is a money anyhow.
    But to be sincere I’d go for the Hasselblad H5X; it allows film too…next life maybe
