    This last is better with this "Foveon blue" exept I would turn the blue sky - only the sky - a bit down, the rest is interesting and strong.

    I hope you mean an ATV ? You won't make it on an on road/off-road type motorcycle like a KLR.

    The sand on the way is too deep. No chance. trust me. I've been there many times.

    This is a beautiful lady and a soft background, but it is too sharp in the face - showing to much "particles" (pardon my English) = Simply too sharp.

    IMHO: You need some software - e.g. Nik software to smoothen out in the face, or perhaps using "neutral" color mode ( I still need to try this out for portraits)

    Thank you, Kyndel.
    Making this portrait more attractive was not my goal, it's a simple test.
    I shared this photo as the camera captured it with no extra sharpening (camera default at 0) applied. Hosting server applies it while resizing the image though. This sample shows how good DP2M is in capturing the skin texture that can be very useful in some applications.

    OK, it is the server, I can understand that, but it is my own interpretation, also with 0 in sharpening and standard colors, that it is too sharp for portraits.

    Not sure, but I believe I read some place that 0 in sharpness in camera actually was not 0, but more, and some use minus 1 or minus 2.

    I still need more experience with portraits, normally I use Nikon D3x for portraits, but next time I will shoot a portrait with DP2M I will use "neutral" and perhaps minus 1 or 2 in sharpness.



    -----

    Others with more experience with portraits with the Merrils, perhaps will chime in here ?

    This is such a great thread......truly awesome shots.

    Michiel.....whether it be the Merrill.....or the NEX...or the GXR, your Cuba shots are wonderful.

    Bob.....nice train shot (among others). The Ute....Zion looks great....as does northern AZ.

    Thanks for sharing

    Uwe, the DP2 Merrill and the Ricoh GXR + 4 lenses. I wanted to keep it small.
    You can see more pictures in the Ricoh GXR thread.

    Default at 0 is still applying sharpening as mentioned....it is not clear just how to get an unsharpened picture out of SPP -1 to -2 ...

    The DP2 Merrill is an unforgiving camera with regards to portraits and lighting...it is however one that can give you a wonderful start to develop a portrait.

    Please forgive the following...a small attempt to brush out some of the overly acute or hyperacute depiction of your friend. Most women over the age of 10 will not be pleased with this and it would behoove us to learn restraint in showing them at less than their best.

    Again a poor quick edit of your photo...I will pull it if you wish...

    I am sure that the DP3 Merrill will be even more tuned to portraiture due to the somewhat longer focal length of the lens.

    Amazing landscape, Rich M!
    docmoore, nice edit, I do not mind
    But I'm so tired of baby skin every female has on each photograph I see everywhere... And I'm so carried away with the details DP2M conveys. I finally found a camera that captures a true image my eyes see.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    You guys are going to send me to the paupers workhouse if I look at any more pictures from the DP2m. I rarely make colour images, but the beautiful subtle colours that people like Michiel Schierbeek are getting are astonishing (especially the cemetery shot), not to mention the B&W conversions from others. I may have to order one, and its all your fault, all of you....!!

    Hi, I am new to the Sigma DP2M club, but have had a DP2 for years.

    I left this one on X3F, seemed best, any adjustments I made only seemed detrimental to the image. The sensor knew best? Has that happened to you

    Beautiful lake. Looks like we were both in Chile at about the same time. I kicked my self later for not taking the DP2M along.

    Carl......I was glad to have the DP2M, but sad not to pack my lightweight tripod.

    It was cloudy hiking in the upper elevations which made shooting challenging.

    Note to self......tripod.

    There is one fundamental flaw with these damn DP Merrill sensor cameras with their excellent prime lenses. They don`t let me appreciate the output from other cameras any longer. So what shall I do with all this other stuff in my closet? Keep one versatile mft system, just in case and let all the other stuff go? Including the Leica M9?

    Just leave it right where it is and enjoy the fact you no longer have to lug around heavy gear to produce the same or better output.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Hello guys

    finally got a Dp2m, i found a very very good deal with a used but like new camera, so i hope to post there some nice shots in this thread: it's all your fault if i finally bought it!

    I have a silly question: i have already set up stuff and preferences in the camera menu, i will always shoot only RAW, anyway even when i choose raw i still have the choice for colour space, srgb or adobe rgb..does it make a difference to choose one or another if i shoot in raw? Asking this because when i had a Leica M8 i could choose in camera the colour space only in jpg mode, if the camera was set to only DNG ( and it was always like this ) the choice in the camera menu was greyed out, but in the Sigma it's not like that so here is my, silly i repeat, doubt.

    Thanks a lot, ciao!

    Ciao Marco, welcome to the Forum.

    to answer your question: No, none of the settings in camera will affect the raw files.
    The only thing these settings will do is how the files will first be shown if you open them in SPP. You can still change everything in SPP.

    Tanti saluti
    Werner

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    The only issue I've had with color spaces:
    My SD1M was set for Adobe RGB, when I received my DP2M I set it the same color space but the file numbering system is the same and I overwrote some files from the SD1M.
    So for the DP2M I set the color space to srgb which yields a different numbering scheme, the Raw can be resaved in any space you choose (ProPhoto RGB for me).
