    Thank you. First time I've been called beautiful, handsome maybe

    I have to say, I go back to my other camera's, yet for all the quirks of the camera and time it takes to process images all is forgiven and I return to the DP3, I do like and actually enjoy using the camera.

    Slow moving thread for these DP Merrill's have but quality is always preferable to quantity.

    Another stroll results in a few more pics.

    Starting with Sigma

    Hi All,

    A big thankyou for helping me choose the DP3M. I sold my Fuji X100s and moved as I wanted a longer focal length, my interest being portraits. The portraits here were super inspiring!

    Some of my first pics.




    How can I show the images. Neither the wrap code nor the insert image links are giving the result.

    This one is sublime.
    I wonder if only the Foveon could capture it.

    Thankyou, Tim and Ranger Rick!

    You are probably right, Tim. The feedback I got for that photo usually says how real it looks.
    I was thinking today, that I click less photos with the Sigma compared to the Fuji. But the number of photos i feel happy about have gone up with it.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I was interested in the Sigma DP3M so I rented one this week and have been playing around with it the last couple of days. To say the least, I am impressed, and while I have a lot to learn, I'm already loving the results.

    Here are a few shots I took this weekend:


    Raja by Elusivesouls, on Flickr


    Mexican Fireleg by Elusivesouls, on Flickr

    I'm fairly certain that I will be ordering this camera soon. I am not a huge fan of the "run and gun" style of shooting. I've owned a Sony A99 and a Canon Mark III for a while but for the last year or so, I've preferred slowing down and learning to have patience with my photography rather than hoping for one good shot out of a hundred. As such, I've recently downsized to the Fuji camera system (x100s and X-E1) and now am looking at the Sigma line.

    Talking Re: Sigma DP3M

    Your photos finally convinced me. And--yesterday I tried close up flowers with the DP2M and was not very happy . So, I sent $585 to Japan and my DP3M is on the way.

    I've had my DP3 for a few weeks now. The weather hasn't been great in Wisconsin, but I did force myself to get outside and take some photos. It does an amazing job at dog portraiture...



    I think I'm going to like this camera. A lot!

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I had a 'borrowed' DP2 Merrill from a friend, and really enjoyed it. In fact, I was sorely tempted by it, but waited for the DP3 (which is more my focal length).

    I'm looking forward to the release of the quattros, and I'll likely fill in my bag with one or both of the other two---unless I see a press release about a new SLR from them. Kazuto Yamaki mentioned that one issue with a new SLR is that they didn't have a lot of lenses that were up to the task. I remember the 55-200 kit lens being quite good with my SD10, but not so much so with the higher resolution SD14.

    Enjoy the DP2M! And if you're in the market for puppies, we'll be breeding that cute dog in a week or so... :-)

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I'm in love with my Merrills as well. I always liked the Foveon results - mainly because of the constant level of detail no matter of the subject and local image area, especially fascinating in homogenous low-contrast areas. But even high contrast edges, e.g. branches of trees in front of sky, seem to be so much cleaner and more real since there's no need to sharpen them. Conventional cams have to use unsharpening masks to make edges appear sharp and halos all over are the result. But with Foveon ... by going back to -0.7 sharpness in SPP all my branches look so natural, still sharp and less pixelated, I'm really really happy with the results. =)

    Superb set Ritter. I am hooked to the DP3 and have been since it arrived. Find it hard now to work on my other camera files.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    All of them seem to be packed with details all over, Julian! Nice little micro contrasts. =) And yes, dealing with the results of my other cams is strange somehow. Always wondering if their results used to be sharper, or if I only supposed em to be sharper back then.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I have no idea of the scenario you put forward. All I know I am finding it harder to enjoy the other files from my other wonderful cameras. Yes the advantages of my other gear has for certain situations is needed. But for everyday use I have with me my OM-D and some great lenses and the DP3. invariable the the OM-D does not leave the bag. It is not that it is not a superb camera and I still use. It is no longer the first to go for. The reason is the quality of the files. The 5D MK and the wonderful lenses are left out completely.
    All this even when the Sigma dpp is so slow, yet in many ways it is always forgiven because of the output. I am about to purchase a second Merrill, the DP2, but because of the price drop it is becoming hard to get.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I've been using a 5D + lot of fine fixed focal lengths for quite some years and I always enjoyed the results. But in the last year I was using the Merrills only and when I'm now using the 5D rarely again, or while postprocessing its raw files, I wonder why they are so soft ... and I wonder if they have always been. Of course it's complaining on a high level, but it's definitely harder to enjoy my older gear than it used to be. That's all I wanted to say ...

    What makes me keep my old stuff is its flexibility, too. Not only Hi-ISO but all the lenses and possibilities I miss with my DPs (TS-E, Macro, Tele, etc. or thin DOF). Most complains on my old stuff are related to missing per pixel sharpness and lack of detail.

    I'm looking for a second DP3M, btw. I'm sick of cloud shadows or wind effects while making 3D-Stereo-Images.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Also it is not always about pixel sharpness. It is the quality of the light for me and many of my best images would not stand to be pixel peeped, yet with the combination of the light capture and the resolution of the DP3 it is superb combination.
    Of course some situations as said cannot be adequately captured using the Merrill, which is why we make excuses to have more than one camera, or two or three or ...... ;-)

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Does anyone know whether the SD3 Merrill is supported by DCRaw?

    I ask as it does not seem to be in Dave Coffin's latest list and I can't find an email address with which I can ask him.

    I am intending to buy an SD3M but only if I can continue to use Qimage to convert my RAWs.

    I've asked on the Qimage forum but not got an answer (yet).

    The SD1 and the SD2 are supported. I thought all three had the same sensor and software.

    First: There is nothing like a SD2/3 Merrill, its DP

    And for the list: Does he write DP1 and DP2? Cause that are different (older) cameras than DP1 merrill, DP2 merrill and DP3 merrill.

    There are and neither the RAWs from the DP3M nor the DP2M convert using Qimage.
