The new Panasonic G85 is based on a Micro Four Thirds 16MP. The camera offers a brilliant electronic viewfinder based on OLED technology. This viewfinder is very large (0.74x; equivalent to a 35mm film camera with a 50mm lens) and offers a high resolution of 2.36 million RGB dots. The EVF has an eye sensor, which means the view switches automatically to the EVF when the photographer looks into the viewfinder: alternately, the user can toggle view manually by pressing the “Fn5” button on the back. This function button is one of five user-definable “Fn” buttons on the top and on the back: the G85 also has five “virtual Fn” buttons on the LCD screen. The screen is touch sensitive and fully integrated into camera operation.

Now that most of us are shooting with high-resolution cameras, the need to upscale our image files isn’t as pervasive as it was a few years ago. But occasionally we still need to res-up an image that’s been cropped significantly, and there’s a freeware program that’s designed to do that and more.
