    A beautiful November day on the lake. Fall Creek and park boathouse with a little golden willow color. DP2M, handheld.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    For the past year or so I have been doing a long term project in an old cemetary in Whitechapel, in the heart of the East End of London. This has been a project done 90% on MF film.

    I've been deliberately trying to capture 1:1 frames using the DP2M as a comparison. Now, I'm not sure whether to continue with film or just the DP2M!

    If you want to take a look at the full frame (12MB!) jpeg conversion then it is here

    DP2M, iso100, f4 tripod mounted converted to TIFF in SP5 then to jpeg in LR3 - and yes, some of the headstones do actually fluoresce green in fierce direct sunlight.

    November weather in Switzerland. Fog in the valleys and sunshine in the mountains. DP2M.

    Three color ones, although with the hazy conditions I think B&W renders the scenes more dramatic.

    Hi Michiel, the cabel car brought us there. It's the mount Pilatus at 2100m in central Switzerland. At least we decided to walk down (to 400m) with the first section being quite demanding. I was carrying the Fuji XE 1 with the 18mm, 60mm and CV15 with the DP2M. The CV allowed a few fun shots and the 60mm was useful to have. But in truth, the DP2M was all I really needed. A DP1M & DP2M might be a great combo in the mountains. After 2 months or so with the DP2M I'm seriously thinking of selling my M9 and all m-lenses. As nice as the m system is, from an IQ standpoint and for most of my needs I don't see why I should use it in lieu of the Sigma since I'm a big fan of lightweight and small for travelling and outdoors. Three from the way down.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Ah a cable car! I could do that

    I see what you mean, Retow, with your preference for B&W.
    The world is very blue up there and the skys can be very highlighted.
    As soon as the greens come in, colour works well, I think.

    That would be a big step for me to sell a Leica M9 with lenses, but I hold on to my equipment to long, I think.
    Camera bodys, no problem, but nice lenses...
    I would think this lens is nice for portraits, this lens is nice for macro,
    this lens draws beautifully, etc etc .........

    Anybody here find that the Foveon sensor doesn't handle highlights as well as some other options?

    Also, what's everybody's limit on shutter speed? I haven't tried anything under 1/60.

    Too slow for my shaky hands. I try to stay above 1/125 or better yet use a tripod whenever possible. The DP2M can capture and reproduce such amazing fine detail it is a shame to sacrifice it for a slower shutter speed.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Composant; highlights can be hard especially with white skys in the sun area.
    If it is much worth then other cameras, I wouldn't really know.
    I do shoot @ 60 an even less, but mostly when I am to busy framing/photographing, I forget.
    That doesn't always work out well.

    Today was the yearly big herringfeast in Dieppe.
    A beautifull clear day with millions of herrings getting barbecued.
    Yesterday I could buy 100 herrings for 10,--. I didn't.
    If I would have known, I would have given a herring party.

    Lovely day in Southern California, on the way home from services . . .
    Light, clouds, boulders, farm fields and "purple mountain majesties..."



    Crop



    This camera is fast becoming my favorite. The ability to tote it along at all times and then produce resutls like this - simply amazing.

    Really like the window shot. This to my mind is where the DP2M excels. It really captures light beautifully. I also like the apples. Beautiful colours and lovely bokeh.

    Back from Morocco.

    A cloth shot



    And for those looking for moire...there isn't any. Any patterns are patterns in the cloth itself.

    Here is the link to the full resolution shot

    I'm now sure Sigma built Morocco as a test bed for the Merrills.

    A product shot with the DP2M. My new backup camera for the DP2M. I'm hoping it can provide image quality close to the DP2M, but at wider and longer focal lengths (when I find the right lenses). The DP2M will remain my main camera for landscape work.

    A comparison using the DP2M and M9 (M-E with CV Nokton 1.5). They seem to be roughly comparable in image quality, given the inadequacies of casual comparisons.

    First the DP2M, click image for full size



    The M9 shot, click for full size.

    Congrats with your new camera, Carl! What a beauty!

    Compleetly different colors! Leica does look very green. The color of water is very diffrent as well, but the pictures don't look as if they were shot the same day.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Carl, the two images are quite interesting considering the price difference!

    Since I saw how well the Topaz DeNoise works with the DP2M after reading about it on a thread in another forum (DPReview) I've started using the cam more at higher ISO's (up to ISO 4000 in fact!) and it's really been fun. (BW only though. Color is waaaaaay too wonky!)

    Thanks Michiel. Yes, as I noted above a very casual comparison. The DP2M image was taken the day before I got the Leica. I'll do a better comparison soon.

    Thanks Peter, I'll have to give that a try for B&W work. I've used Topaz Adjust, which includes some limited de-noise functions, but haven't worked with it for B&W.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Carl

    Interesting comparison. Fits in with my experience of comparing the same scene, admittedly several years apart(!) with my M8, D700 and the DP2M. In every instance the DP2M out resolved fine detail and had better microcontrast. On top of that I have found less blown highlights in sky and more sky texture - looking very 'film' like. Incidentally, I owned two different CV 50/1.5 and both samples were cracking lenses. Very (very) soft at 1.5 but at f2 a beauty for portraits and at f8 every bit as good as a summicron. Converts to B&W very nicely, as well.

    Don't want to disappoint you in your new purchase but I feel the DP2M slightly betters the M9. But on the other hand, you are right about needing the versatility of more than one fixed focal length.

    Enjoy both cameras!

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    I like to shoot freehand and I like to shoot the DP2M at its lowest ISO. This means even I have to consider a tripod :-).

    Today I checked out the first time the MeFoto small tripod.

    First the photos:














    Some MeFoto shots:

    1. Small




    2. Can go tall




    3. Like the center column bit more down




    4. Can use the bag to stabilize




    I think it passed the test.

    Re: shot of a Sigma DP2 Merrill

    When I first saw Uwe's DP2M + stick (or whatever you call the handle you screw into the tripod hole), I thought it looked "dorky" (Uwe, no disrespect here; this is an Australian word that can be used affectionately as well as disparagingly!), but the fact is I found a similar one while tidying the studio yesterday.

    The DP2M arrived this morning; first impressions in a moment, but I attached the stick, and voil: the handling is transformed. Here it is:



    Uwe: thank you, sincerely; it is a wonderful improvement and I was able to brace myself and the camera while making the obligatory cat shots this morning in a way that is simply impossible with a boxy P&S shape and size.

    I can now report that using a Helios viewfinder for any work where you actually want to frame and focus on a particular part of the image will not work, at least for me! Maybe if I use a large-size focus area and am in a crowd or in public, that could work, maybe.

    Overall, after an hour, I feel that this little toy has one of the most intelligent UIs of any camera I have owned (and like many here, that is a great many).

    I particularly like the ease of changing and moving the focus point and exposure compensation.

    Battery life... well, that's another matter.

    I can't see this being the only camera I own, but the focal length is perfect, and preliminary checks of focus and colour accuracy are encouraging. More to come. Thanks so much to this thread here!

    This site has an amazing habit of deleting posts if you have not checked to see if you are still logged in.

    Anyhow.

    The cat shot first, focus left eye:



    In-camera, Neutral. Output TIFF and JPEG very accurate colour-wise. All settings SPP standard (I tried a few different colour settings; and left sharpening at standard), > TIFF >smart sharpen > crop > JPEG

    I am not finding SPP unusable on a MacBook Pro (quad-core, i7, max RAM), so far, and no crashes. Hitting the Full Res button essential, though.

    So far, so good.

    Oh, (@ Uwe; yes, re. number of shots—I shot MF film for years, and we would have killed for 36! Definitely not a problem for me. And I will be looking in to that little tripod, too. Cheers, kl

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Hello BL,

    1/80", ƒ2.8, ISO 200, +3 exp. comp., Auto WB, Neutral colour. ƒ4 would have been better (distance ~2'). This is a 'lilac Burmese'; very difficult to get the colours accurate (purple is one of the colours they display). Anyhow, this was my very first attempt using SPP, so happy with this. More to come.

    BTW, to all, ISO 1600 is useable, I feel; take zero notice of the LCD display—it will look wildly grainy. The same image opened in SPP will look completely different, assuming you shot in RAW (and everyone here does!). It's sharp, but not fakely so, to my eyes. I am liking this little toy, I have to admit!

    Cheers, Kit

    (I thought I replied to this but...)

    Kit, interesting to get those statistics.

    At f2.8 the lens performs very well indeed. At least as good as the sharpest Leica lenses I ever owned (including the 28/2.8 ASP which was razor sharp).

    I've found that the transition from focus to out of focu areas is very well controlled on this lens as demonstrated by your cat picture.

    I still don't get it. How on earth can this camera be this good?

    Nice photo, but f4 or 5.6 and you could count all the hairs!

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    I have pretty much kept the lens wide open since I took the camera out of the box; and have kept all the settings inside SPP at default. This means that sharpening is applied, from what Herb and others have informed us, but for my tastes (in this image at least), does not look overdone. The original image at 50% looks as if it will print well.

    Now, Herb's and other's interests here centre on landscapes—so the sharpening proposition is very different AND much of the images is focussed at infinity. As everyone here knows, at the kinds of distances I shot Suu Kyi (the cat) at, DOF falloff is rapid. So (now to Michiel), I will try ƒ4 and you will all be welcome to count the hairs!

    I took this little toy out with me last night with a Cokin .9 grad and the Uwe stick (and a Hoodman loupe); in the end, the loupe stayed in the car. What an amazingly compact rig!!! Not a spectacular sunset, but I just wanted to get familiar with it all.

    And the focal length is perfect for me for the majority of the 'beauty is everywhere but we move too fast to see it' kind of images that I mostly make for myself. There are two things that I absolutely love about this camera: one is the fact that IQ is my fault alone, and the UI: it is intelligent and something in me resonates deeply with this.

    I am still getting the X-E1 (there are too many situations where I would be forcing the DP2's capacities, like a shooting a gymnastics workshop I am hosting this weekend plus I need video capacity which I think the X-E1 will be able to do), but it will be interesting to see which one I pick up each day. Cheers, kl

    Great stuff. I really feel the DP2M excels at this type of close-up texture shot. Perhaps because you see such amazingly detailed patterns? Lovely captures.

    Yes. I use it also to capture textures for my Texture Blending.

    This uses the texture of the tire:

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Some shots taken at Washington D.C.'s National Harbor Tree lighting festival yesterday. The last two shots were at ISO 3200, converted to TIFF with just a little of LR3's NR applied (value=26).

    Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
    My job is to capture them.
