Now you might be concerned, that this tight crop costs too much resolution. This depends on the application, but even when a highrez image is needed, there might be a way around: Just shoot not one but let’s say eight or twelve similar shots and combine these using the software PhotoAcute. PhotoAcute implements a sophisticated Super Resolution algorithm and therefore can at least double the resolution. Sounds interesting? Then lets have a look at this quick TEST.
Also it is worth noticing, that PhotoAcute sells a cheaper version of the original software, which is designed especially for the use with smartphones.
And, as always, at the end there is a tiny little bit of PHOTOSHOP stardust needed. I only used Adobe Camera Raw for the teaser shot. You can see the adjustments and also the crop in the two screenshots. As you might notice, these tiny adjustments make quite a big difference.
