Would you like to double the data volume of your digital photos? No problem if you have PROSHIFT+, another bright idea from the accessory specialist Novoflex.
PROSHIFT+ doubles the data volume on all digital SLR cameras with interchangeable lenses. With the Canon EOS 20 D, for instance, you get up to 20 megapixels; with the CANON EOS D60 or 10 D models, 16 megapixels...and equivalent gains with other similarly adaptable cameras.
Fitted to a Novoflex bellows, the Novoflex PROSHIFT+ is used to take 2 or 3 individual shots using parallel shift and multiple exposures. These partial images are then merged automatically to a complete image using an appropriate program (Canon Photo Stitch, Photoshop CS Photomerge, etc.). Photomerge has an advantage here because it supports fine corrections of the individual images at separate levels.
The image or file size, and thus the print quality is increased 2x to 2.4x, depending on the sensor size. This also applies to future cameras with 8, 10 and12 megapixels!
The procedure is straightforward: photographers looking for extra quality mount single images manually in 16-bit mode to create file sizes of up to 90 Mbytes without fuss with cameras in the 6-megapixel class!
The procedure is suitable for all still-life takes, plus many landscape and architecture shots where there is no change during the 3 exposures. To obtain 3 separate files suitable for mounting, the lighting should be identical and the exposure setting (shutter speed/aperture) plus the white balance should be fixedmanually.
In combination with the Novoflex BALPRO 1 or BALPRO T/S universal bellows, the useful focal length is between 80 and 150 mm, with the effective focal length approximately halved by the larger image field. In effect, the image area taken with a focal length of 150 mm corresponds to a single image taken at about 80 mm. At the same time, the sometimes unwanted increase in focal length is more than compensated for by the smaller chip size.
The Novoflex PROSHIFT+ adapter can be tilted for portrait or landscape format and offers all the benefits of the interchangeable Novoflex adapter system, so that a change of the camera system won't present any new problems.
The Novoflex PROSHIFT+ adapter can also be used with analog SLR cameras for normal photography with shift function.
