That split image picture just looks like a picture in focus vs. One that is out of focus. Of course there is a loss of detail when a picture is badly out of focus. Getting the lighting right when taking photos of coins is what I have problems with, even with a modern coin microscope that takes pictures. I find it almost impossible to the picture to look like the coin when it comes to color/shine and I've tried just about everything. Any tips that might help solve this issue would be greatly appreciated!
