120.8 MP 5Dmk4 Dual Pixel RAW Real World Test
Standard 30 MP CR2 RAW on left (at 200% to match landmarks) and my resolution booster on the right (100%).
I've found additional improvements and increased the quality by about 50-60% over my previous processing formulas.
This version is a blend of deconvolution super-resolution algorithms (the same technology found in Hasselblad, Pentax and Olympus cameras, but this is all done with one shot, not multiples or pixel shifting technology), 16 demosaic processing passes and false colour suppression.
My previous formula wasn't working up to my expectations (which impressive as they were, in my opinion, fell slightly shorter than my expectations - mostly due to artifacts and aliasing issues).
This version is likely the maximum and best I can get. It certainly in my eyes means that the dual pixels with double the information available means I can get double the resolution.
Ultimately, being able to generate 120.8 MP images on any of my dual-pixel RAW files will be quite handy when I really need it (in my job, I routinely produce images that need to be on backdrop displays and bus shelters).
I will continue to push this formula for a while and see just how well it holds up.
