Is it possible? Can the A7II make 96MP Raw files via firmware update? (Diglloyd)

With the launch of the 5 axis stabilization system of the A7II Sony opened a whole world of new possibilities. Not only is any lens produced so far suddenly “stabilized” (even 60 years old lenses). But on paper you could also realize a Super High Resolution shooting mode that Olympus added on the new Olympus E-M5II. And I even got a rumor lately confirming that Sony is testing that feature.

Diglloyd writes down what I hope will become true one day via firmware update:

Since the Sony A7 II already has image stabilization and a Sony A7R II ought to have the same stabilization, the possibility of a firmware update for the A7 II which supports sensor shift technology is intriguing. Consider the following if implemented only as far as Olympus does it:

  • 24MP full-frame sensor could generate 96MP raw files delivering something approaching 60 megapixels of detail under ideal conditions.
  • 36MP full-frame sensor could generate 144MP raw files delivering something approaching 90 megapixels of detail under ideal conditions.
  • 50MP full-frame sensor could generate 200MP raw files delivering something approaching 125 megapixels of detail under ideal conditions.

I am sure every SAR reader would like to get that feature!
