The main objective of this article is to share some examples of cropping with HHHR technology, specifically with macro type photography. Additionally, a couple of links to earlier articles that outline some of the benefits of Handheld Hi Res (HHHR) technology are also provided. These two earlier articles covered how HHHR increases dynamic range, and how HHHR does a very good job reducing noise when higher ISO values are used.

MC-20 Hi Res Test
The article features some M.Zuiko MC-20 Hi Res test images of frogs, captured handheld during a recent visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens. These test photographs were created using an E-M1X with an M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
This article discusses handheld macro photography and why I prefer using my Olympus E-M1X and M.Zuiko 60 mm macro lens over the full frame gear I owned in the past.
As regular readers know, I very much dislike using a tripod and only do so when it’s absolutely necessary. In the past when I tried to create handheld macro images with my full frame equipment I would very seldom get any useable images. I simply could not hold my full frame equipment steady enough. It was an exercise in frustration. My full frame gear always seemed to get in the way of my creativity.
Handheld Flower Photography
This article discusses some handheld flower photography options and features a range of images captured using various cameras and techniques. The majority of the photographs illustrated in this posting were created using an E-M1X.
Dragonflies at the RBG
I recently had the opportunity to photograph some dragonflies at the RBG (Royal Botanical Gardens) that were frequenting one of the ponds. The breeze was a bit calmer than it has been in the past so I decided to try my hand at some Handheld Hi Res images, as well as capturing some dragonflies in flight.
HHHR Butterfly Test
This article features some Handheld Hi Res HHHR butterfly test images captured last week at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory. It has probably been over 18 months since I did any photography at this facility due to COVID 19 restrictions. Needless to say, I was a bit rusty. It didn’t take too long to get back in the grove though. 🙂
M.Zuiko 100-400 HHHR
This article features five M.Zuiko 100-400 mm HHHR test images captured at the Royal Botanical Gardens, along with 100% crops of each. As regular readers know I enjoy pushing myself and my camera gear with various challenges, just to see what will result. On a personal basis I don’t spend any time pixel peeping my images… but I do appreciate that some readers would like to see some 100% crops periodically so I included them in this article.
Early Spring HHHR
This article shares some early spring HHHR (Handheld High Resolution) images of flowers captured earlier today in my yard. With the various restrictions and lock down measures that are in place, it is always good to get out in some fresh air to photograph whatever subjects we can find.
Revisiting HHHR Bird Images
This article shares some experimentation I did in post processing when revisiting HHHR bird images. I’d like to thank one of our readers, Brian Bullock, for providing the creative spark for this posting. These photographs were captured at Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls, Canada.
Longhouse at Crawford Lake
A couple of days ago my wife and I made a quick visit to the longhouse at Crawford Lake Conservation Area, as well as taking a short forest hike. This article shares some handheld, longer exposure images of the interior of the longhouse.
