    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    I took my DP2 with me while skiing today. The sharpness of the lens is amazing and the camera is so small I almost forget I had it with me. However, I still have trouble with the color. Here is a B&W version as the color image has both green and magenta colored snow.

    Louis, nothing to worry about, that is a maintenance guy doing his routine.
    DPM's detail never stops to amaze me.
    I wonder what Sigma brings next for DP series since Q went on sale and Photokina is coming up this year?

    Sadly, I think it will only be a Quattro-ised SD and not a DP with a better sensor.

    Still we can but hope...

    Not having a quatro or having followed discussions around it I assume that the benefit is better ISO? Does it lose much charachter in other areas?

    This week I was lucky enough to have been working in the Black Sea area of Turkey some 400 km northwest of Ankara. While there we spent the night at Safranbolu, a town declared a world heritage site in 1994. Very photogenic in the fog and poor visibility. Yet again I was astounded by the amazing capabilities of this sensor for black and white images:

    As to colour: Yes it does have a different signature but in my opinion this is neither a necessarily good or bad thing. It renders differently and in the end it comes down to taste. You either like it or not.

    For those interested here are some more B&W examples:

    http://dubois.photodeck.com/-/galler.../safranbolu-bw

    By the way, these were all taken with an SD1 but as the sensor is the same I thought the images might add something to this excellent thread. Apologies if I've broken the rules.

    Hi Tjanik: Are you post processing in LR? If so, have you tried to export to jpg directly from SPP. I find the conversion very different when compared to a re-export via DXO or LR. As an example direct from SPP, sharpnes -0.8, saturation +0.8 all else on default:

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Here area a couple of the images I shot today with the DP2M along the Ship Creek industrial area in Anchorage. I hadn't used my DP Merrills since a trip to Death Valley National Park in March 2015. Forgot how much I enjoy them. On the DV trip, I was always shooting with the cameras on a tripod with manual focus and manual exposure modes, so it's a very different experience shooting with them handheld and using AF and AV modes.

The jpeg is picked up off my Flickr page, so, I've no idea what sort of mangling has gone on. But you should be able to enlarge the pic a bit.

    The shot was taken at 1/60s f2.8 iso 200 and AE -0.1 I tend to always take three bracketed shots at 0.7, 0 and -0.7 AE and set the camera up for -0.3AE, hence I get the -1.0AE. I do this because it is too easy to blow the highlights, even on a Merrill. My DP0 Quattro is even more sensitive and I've often found the best pics are -1.7 AE!!

    I think I focused on the back window but it could have been the books in front of the window. At f2.8 the foreground was always going to be OOF.

    I think your first version is nicer - more mood to the image.

    I thought that was probably the case. One of the few downsides to having multiple camera systems...keeping all those images/forums straight! ;-)

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Very happy with DP2M back in my hands. Sigma service center in Ronkonkoma, NY did an excellent job with the camera service. Top plate was replaced under warranty.
    Total time from shipment to delivery back to my door - 7 days. No more lock-ups in continuous shooting mode that the camera developed. Thank you Sigma for a 3-year warranty!

    Another photo from my trip to Death Valley in March 2015. This is from the "ghost town" of Rhyolite. Converted to B&W with Topaz. Printed on Ilford Gold Mono Silk for a recent B&W print exchange. I submitted a color version for the April color print exchange, but I do like the B&W version much better.

    Just got back from Tenerife where I used the DP2M exclusively. It was a fun challenge and I'm very happy with the results.

    Some from Stratford upon Avon. I missed the fact the DP2M was set to Norm JPEG. Never shot it with JPEG before but I think the photos are still very good and very clean of noise. I now have my faith restored after my misadventure with my now departed DP0Q. If Sigma make a DP0 Merrill I will buy one right now.

    There is one: the Dp1M with the Ricoh GR wide angle converter.

    Florin, the second is a nice picture but IMO it needs some crop, so it looks a little boring.
    Try to crop at from left 160 and from top 20 and 2180.
    regards^^

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    nice shots Florin, and good examples, the first one with the mine car centered is a little boring, second with mine car off center has much more suspense.
    This is what I meant in the reply to your last pic, center often is a little boring.^^
