Looking good there, Uwe :-)
On tripods, I'm using an Induro A014 with the Induro SA01 ball head. Slung in its case over the shoulder you hardly know you are carrying it. I purchased it originally in Toronto while there on a visit there and Michael Reichmann kindly set me up with a visit to his friends store where I also purchased a Canon G10 (it was a 3 or so years ago and the G10 gets little use now...).
However my main tripod is a Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 with an old488 hexagonal ball head. Bit too big for lightweight travel stuff, but use it with the Hassy.
hot stuff, and wonderfull shot Quentin!
Where/how do you do the sepia-look?
There is a conservation society near where I live, the Colne Valley Rail preservation society, that has a short run of track with steam trains where I vertured today to take this shot. You just never know what you are going to find almost in your own back yard....
Thorkil, I used PS6 with Silver Effex Pro 2 plug in. The toning I worked out after playing around with the settings.

I thought so. Seems the mild halos are from this plugin. Don't think the DP2M produces such halos.
Thanks. Does nothing to take away the nice shot.
Nice Quentin! The framing is adequate as well.

We finally had some rain this past weekend so there was a bit more water flowing in the gorge today. A few shots from a hike through Upper Buttermilk Creek gorge this afternoon. The LARGE IMAGE link is for 50% images which provide more detail than the thumbnails.

I can't believe I am even looking at this thread. In fact, I am trying not too - I have switched off display of images in my browser, otherwise I might be tempted. I already have a Fuji X-Pro 1 and X100 so I don't need this, right?
Apologies if this has been discussed earlier in the thread (I did say I don't want to look) but how do people cope without a VF, of any kind? More and more cameras only have an LCD but I just don't get it. No camera I have ever owned has had a LCD that is visible enough outdoors in bright light ... so what am I missing? Spectacles?
I think it may be safe to order
I'm just waiting for the DP1M.
And I think you can trust both Quentin and Carl.
>but I'd also like a right angle viewer to use with the DP2M on a waist level tripod.
Carl, do you have an image?
>Uwe, I haven't found one yet.
Aha, me neither.
In my experience it is difficult to capture wood structures with most cameras. The DP2M performed very well.
Good with Wood, Uwe! Love those subtle textures, which I think the DP2 excells at if properly exposed.
Lee, owning one of these cameras is a bit like being admitted in to an exclusive club. If you are on the outside, you simply don't understand what all the fuss is about - its just another camera, surely? If you are on the inside, you know you have something pretty special. You have peeked behind the curtain - now you have to join!
>which I think the DP2 excells at if properly exposed.
Yes, what annoys me the most is that the real histogram for the shot can only be viewed after the data are written and that takes a long time. You can shoot again without waiting but I would like to get the info fast.
>I can even see subtle texture on smooth surfaces (dirty windows) with the DP2M that is completely lost with other cameras.
Can also be a curse.

>I have to clean my home if I buy this camera?
That is easy. But think of cleaning Half Dome :-)

Congrats Carl! And let us know how the DP1 fares

Got my DP2M today. My first thought taking it out of the box was, Wow, this thing is slick. I could so easily drop this camera. And I have NEVER dropped a camera before.
My next thought was after a few snaps out the front door and then immediately reviewing on the iMac: Wow! Amazing detail. And that 3D look is there. Color me happy.
The only thing that could be better now is if ACR suddenly announced support....
Iridient Digital is close to releasing an update to Raw Developer that will process DP2 files, so if you're on a Mac you'll be smiling soon. Raw Developer pulls more detail out of my DMR files than any raw processor I've tried to date.
