Trying out new tricks at home

I've seen people discussing how super-resolution photos can be made using ordinary cameras, but never tried it before till now. With K-50's sensor-shift feature, this is actually very easy to do.

Made out of 9 photos, each shifted 1-click in various directions from neutral, resulting in a 4x-resolution photo.

For pixel peepers, here's the full-res: Click

This is definitely the harder way to do it, although I'd argue that this is better in dealing with objects in motions like flags/leaves/etc.

Because the images were made by flattening multiple layers of photos in various opacity, one could simply mask the moving objects and increase the opacity of other "good" layers. Or, because of how transparent each layer looks like, imperfections might not even be visible or looks more like faint ghosting.

That is pretty cool. Now use a 9 blade shutter and those Starburst will make this even better.
