This is how weird moving objects look in Sony A7rIII Pixel Shift mode

Darren Soh from our Sony A7rIII FB group (join here) shared some more findings on the A7rIII Pixel Shift Mode (Click on images to enlarge). First let’s see that image of a jogger in the Park:

Darren writes: “100% crop comparison of one shot (left) and pixel-shifted image (right). A glitch in the matrix occurs when any changes happens between the four exposures – here, a jogger is running by. Even his shadow is recorded as a glitch.

Of course this was expected. It’s nearly impossible to avoid such artifacts on moving objects. Maybe some future algorithm could make it possible to remove moving objects from the frame. But for now you have to deal with these kind of issues when you don’t shoot absolutely static objects.

That said the new Pixel Shift model really delivers superb results. Darren writes:

(image on top) 100% crop comparison of one shot (left) and pixel-shifted image (right). Notice the elimination of moire in the staircase grille.
