    Beautiful winter scenes, Steven! Only remark is the houses in the second picture are skew.

    Rich, nice portrait indeed! Also would like to know in camera B&W?

    Nice.

    I would have liked a lit bit less muddy effect.

    Thanks Michiel,
    I will correct the skew in LR4, easy fix, I guess i didn't have the DPM2 level.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    In case anyone has wondered what I am up to, I have been spending time organising shots from my recent trip to Morroco - Fes, and Chefchaouen.

    Here are two from the trip, both taken with the DP2M

    The first shot is of a leather worker in Fes Medina, and second a view of Chefchaouen.





    The DP2M and DP1M were my main trip cameras.

    Quentin, fabulous! Glad to see you posting again.
    Who said the DPM's aren't for portrait work!
    So, sometimes the portraits are too sharp.

    Have a happy, healthy new year!!

    For me they show too much detail. But this is also a matter of the image size on the web.

    It's also the intent of the photographer, Uwe. I shot and processed them that way. Otherwise I might as well have used an "ordinary" camera.

    I know. I just mentioned my take and as mentioned it depends on the viewing size. Was no disrespect.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    The vast majority of modern cameras have too much detail to be flattering to people, women in particular. That's where good Photoshop skills come in. Mask the face and retouch. I'd much rather have to reduce detail than try to work without it.

    Exactly, if that is the effect you want. I do that frequently if the aim is a flattering portrait. The Merrills are particularly good at emphasising nooks and crannies in faces, which makes them the perfect choice where the opposite effect to the wedding portrait or glamour look is required.

    When I chose to use the DP2M and DP1M almost exclusively in Morocco, it was because I was looking for portable cameras with ruthless detail, both for the architecture and for the people. In that they excelled The local people wear their lives on their faces. I'm not interested in taking away some of that life.

    I agree with that 100%. Just felt this portrait a bit over the top at least in the resolution I see here.

    Though the man had paused a little for the photo, he is still doing what he was working on in the photo. Oh, the face the is full of stories. Thanks for sharing, Quentin.

    Agree to the portrait discussion. Sometimes i edit my wife's face a little bit. LR 4 with brush, or Perfect Portrait. Otherwise i would run into trouble....


    A happy new year, great health and lot's of "good" shots in 2013

    Had a good start to 2013 already, a year I have dedicated to photography itself and not gear...

    Golden Ears Provincial Park, BC (western Canada), all shot with my DP2m/tripod, 99 photos used 2.5 batteries! (cold weather)

    A mossy tree spotlighted by the sun...


    A five-shot pano...

    This picture is actually a crop out of the original. Below is 100% crop which shows the incredible detail from the DP2M, even hand held.

    Thank you Charles. No selective saturation. Just the oveall colors a bit.
    But it was sunset, so the light was nice.

    Loving my Merrill ...



    Where does it leave my X-Pro 1 kit? Maybe I need to cut my losses and exchange for a DP1M and DP3M, LOL!

    P.S. it has just struck me, looking at some of the DP images on my machine that they almost have the look of 'digital Cibachrome' ...

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Lee: interesting comment. Other cameras may be more accurate, but there's something about the overall look of the DP's images that is compelling; the 'cibachrome' aspect is part of it, for sure. Only the lack of an EVF stops me selling the X-E1 and buying the other two Merrills.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    As Michiel knows I am very interested in the SD2m as I mostly do scenic photography so it seems like a good fit (mostly do my scenics with a NEX7 and CG glass now and leave the big stuff at home).

    One thing I am noticing when I look at SD2m images from the web on my 27" desktop that there appears to be a (for lack of a better term) grain or salt and pepper pixelation appearance at times in some images. Is that just due to the images just have SO much detail and clarity that when the files are downsized you get this pixilation salt and pepper grain appearance? Or am I seeing things? I don't see it when I view the images on my iPhone or my small mac pro laptop.

    Please don't read this as being critical because I know the images are excellent and the camera seems to really be a great tool for the scenic/still life photogs looking for ultimate detail and clarity. It appears to me most obvious to me in images having lots of Black and White in them or B&W conversions.

    I see the same and think it is this high amount of detail. Good to discuss here.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Thanks Uwe for replying. I don't see it on smaller screens just my big desktop iMac.

    I know I used to see this effect in the earlier days of digital as we crept up on the number of available pixels but were posting much smaller versions of our images due to web restrictions in size........ My images showed in at web size but my prints were awesome and when viewed on my screens while processing they looked equally great...

    I am really getting enthused about the SD2m but want to know all I can before taking the plunge...... where I live camera shops are very limited and they rarely have cameras such as the SD2m ever in stock to try. I am not one who will order from the net to try and return it if I don't like it ..... I feel that is unfair to the dealer and the next guy who thinks he is buying a new camera. If I buy I keep and try and find ways to work around what I don't like.

    Indeed, so true and they are great optics. So I am not selling yet. Looking through a few from my back catalog with Accuraw (and the C1 beta) recently I came to the conclusion that the X-Pro 1 shots were amongst the best from any camera I have had, including the X100.

    But then there are those from the Merrill ... that I am still coming to terms with.

    If only there were more time for photography (work gets in the way but also pays for the hobby ...)

    I am not sure, it is more for the far more technical quys around here to answer, but I thought so as well. It looks like the monitor can't handle the resolution at certain sizes. (BTW it is DP2M)
    I also noticed this grainy effect with upsized JPG images which I use as screensavers but not only from the DP2M but also my NEX images
