Increasing resolution is achieved by pixel shifting
Fujifilm has announced the release of firmware version 3.00 for the Fujifilm GFX100 camera. This update adds Pixel Shift Multi-Shot to the GFX system’s flagship mirrorless camera, which produces 400MP images. The principle of operation of the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function is to obtain a series of frames with a sequential shift of the image sensor with one press of the shutter button.
Firmware update gives Fujifilm GFX100 the ability to shoot at 400 megapixels
Simultaneously, the Fujifilm Pixel Shift Combiner application became available, which combines 16 RAW images created with the new Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function into one 400MP image. The program also provides the ability to shoot with a PC connection using the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function.
According to the manufacturer, Pixel Shift Multi-Shot is a great solution for photographers shooting static scenes, as the additional resolution creates images with “incredibly accurate colors, great details, and rich tones.”
Recall that the Fujifilm GFX100 camera has an image sensor measuring 43.8 x 32.9 mm and a resolution of 102 megapixels.
