Lumix G9 Hi-Res Mode – Canyonlands, UT

Canyonlands, UT. Panasonic Lumix G9 with the Leica 50-200 mm lens at 50mm (100mm equivalent). Exposure triad: f/8, 1/1000 sec, ISO 200

Despite windy conditions, I wanted to test the Hi-Res Mode of the Lumix G9 in a lighting situation where there would be a minimum shadow definition. I found this location and vantage point and returned at near high noon. The clouds were interesting but as they were not interfering with the light falling on this monolith, I set up and captured this image.

The original RAW file before any crop was 10368 px by 7776 px and approx 138 MB. One for one pixel (native resolution) at 260 DPI this image will print 40 inches wide. The image was processed in Capture One and I cropped down from the top for a better composition. The reduced resolution is a 1400px by 922px file.

No sharpening or lens correction has been applied, nor has any chromatic correction been done.

To determine the detail and quality of the image I have done an extreme crop as shown in the image below.
