Re: Panasonic Lumix 3d lens with Close-up Lenses vs Spacers Test

Hi, John. I would want it just for the 3D lens, since the GH2 gives slightly higher resolution images from the "automatic mpo" function compared to standard sensor models, and the theory is that it might do the same in other models if they had this type of sensor. Even the 20 mp sensor of the gx8 returns only 1824 x 1368 per side mpo images (for unknown reasons), while the multi aspect sensor on the 16+ mp GH2 results in 1920 x 1440 images. Somehow the GH2 seems to be unique in this regard, presumably due to the multi-aspect sensor. Some of us are "lazy" and prefer to get usable images right out of the camera. But 1920 wide would be nice rather than 1824.
It sounds as if you routinely use your 3D lens with contacts covered or otherwise inactivated so that you can use video? And you also get stills of 2000+ on each side with the 20mp GH5, after editing? Have you tried the camera for stills with an unmodified (contacts) 3D lens? Perhaps it will capture a wider pixel resolution image even though the 20 mp gx8 does not do any better than the gx1 & gx7. I am curious what the "automatic mpos" would show for pixel dimensions in 4:3 and also in 1:1 aspect ratio with your GH5. Linda

Why would you want such a "multi aspect sensor"? I would prefer to use full width of a 4:3 sensor for all aspect ratios higher (like 16:9, 3:2) => better resolution.
