80MP High Resolution Mode
By using sensor-shift stabilization technology the G9 can use a High Resolution Mode to capture and compile eight separate images to create a single 80MP raw file. This system creates a more highly detailed and color accurate image than a single shot alone can produce and can create an image with a 10368 x 7776 resolution.
What I want in a camera is a small form factor, great glass, and more pixels so I can print large. Well... so I can be a tad lazy about how I capture my images if I know I need to shoot multiple panels and spend a ton of postprocessing time on them. Hey we all want the shortcuts if there is one. Don't lie to yourself.
This thing came dancing across my radar this afternoon. Has anybody used the high resolution mode on this and printed the image large? And I mean 10 feet, 20 feet or longer on the long side? It sounds like a snake oil feature to me. Does anybody know how it works for real?
Also... a micro four thirds mirrorless camera that's larger than a full frame mirrorless? I currently use the Sony A7R here for size comparison. I'm going to have to read some reviews on this thing. Panasonic is getting my attention though for sure.
