    Re: Sigma DP1

    I was in Hollywood for a couple of days. Most of the time was spent in meetings, but I did get a chance to take some photos along Hollywood Boulevard with my DP1. I'm afraid I couldn't resist and went over the top in processing this one with Lightroom.

    Thanks, Helen and Brian.

    Helen, I really like the Dlux 3 photo. Even cartoon characters deserve some time off.

    Here's the first Hollywood image again using a different style of processing.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Here are the other Hollywood images with this second style of processing, which I think I prefer overall for this series (less grungy, more photo-realistic).

    Ooops Sorry David (I called you Will )
    Thanx for the Dlux comment

    I much prefer your Firstt PP 'LOOK'
    To my eye theres more Atmosphere & Drama
    than the second style of Processing

    That's good feedback, Helen. Thanks. I'm amazed how different an image can look just by tweaking a few dials and skewing the results towards a specific color.

    Yes, I agree with Helen, I much prefer the tonality of your first shots David - there's an old film feel to them, great stuff!

    Good ones, Helen.

    I especially like the first with its wide range of rich colors and textures. That's where the DP1 really excels. Happy hunting.

    The Lcd screen was abnormally Dim & Blurry /and on occasion would blank out

    Its Night & Day the difference between what I originally had
    and this one
    The colors & saturation on the screen are crisp & focused

    I'm finally Groovin to the Dp1

    its really a Lovely Camera....Feels oh so fine in the hands
    Just enough weight and spared down menu & options
    Can't really compare to the Speed & Stealth of the GRD's
    but a GEM in its own Right

    Helen,
    Your experience makes me wonder if some reviewers got bad copies.
    Or if Sigma is instituting changes as they get feedback.....

    Yes, I want one of those bright, crisp & clear LCD's for my DP1 too! where can I get one?
    Just for reference, how does your new DP1's LCD compare with that of the GRD?

    That first flower shot is a cracker! Well done, and happy hunting

    Re: Sigma DP1

    I hadn't thought about my replacement DP1 having a better LCD so I haven't been looking out for it. I still use my GV-2 on it all the time. I shall now make a point of trying the LCD in sunlight to see if it seems better.

    I like the rhododendron picture Helen, lovely rich but true colours.

    Brian
    Well the GRD 2 FAR SURPASSES i in terms of LCD and probably on all levels really
    BUT there is still something very 'SPECIAL' & UNUSUAL
    in the way the DP1 Draws, Captures & Plays with Color

    Please don't get me wrong / the LCD on the DP1 is far from Ideal
    Yes in bright Sunlight or Low Light its still very hard to see
    but compared to my first DP1 this is soooo much better
    Even playback looks better than before
    and its not blacking out anymore

    I suppose I look at the DP1 as an 'Artsy' Camera (hit or miss)
    & the Grd's as Phenomenal Tools

    So I'm on a new high for the moment
    Let me Ride the Waves.......
    Cheers! H

    Here's another shot from my Hollywood trip. I used the same muted tones to make it consistent with the others. Those colors seem to work especially well here.

    May I recommend a close up set for your DP1? I have a Tiffen +4 +2 +1 and this is what it will do: (manual focus , handheld 1/30sec, F4.0, flash)

    Re: Sigma DP1

    I'm sorry Helen, I didn't intend to bring you down to earth with a bump... I guess I'm still slightly annoyed by the original rose-tinted hype surrounding this flawed gem of a camera. When all the conditions are right, the DP1 gives exceptional image quality - better than any other compact cam.

    Have fun, and Kind Regards

    Re: Sigma DP1

    No apologies....You silly Man
    I've not Fallen to Earth yet

    but you're Right about the HYPE
    but then when you do it Right w/the DP1....its Pure Magic

    The one thing I do not understand is:
    With such a larger sensor in comparison to the Ricohs
    Why is the magic with the DP1 so far & few ? (wheras w/the Ricoh you can be almost spot on without much Effort)
    What does this mean RE: size of Sensor? (and I suppose I shouldn't leave out lens magic)

    All the Best H

    Is there a Tiffen filter that works for the GRD2 ?

    MisiekBunnik that macro is absolutely stunning.

    I got a HA-11 and uv filter last week (not having a lens cap for it is unbelievable but never mind, the filter will have to do) and I have a +4 lens on order for it. Having seen your image I can't wait to get it!

    Helen are you mixing names up again or am I missing something?

    Another image. There was a nice evening light in my garden today.


    SPP settings for those interested.
    Exposure -0.3
    Contrast +2.0
    Shadow -0.2
    Saturation +0.1
    Sharpness 0.0
    X3 Fill Light +0.5
    White balance 0
    Photoshop CS3 nothing on this one.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Thanks, Helen. I figured you might be referring to me when you mentioned the classic films. Also, there didn't seem to be another recent moody DP1 photo. There probably is a connection between my photos and the classic movies, though I'm not conscious of the connection. Probably works better if it's instinctual rather than conscious.

    Haven't seen the 1944 Gaslight in a while, so I don't remember the beginning. I do remember being impressed with the movie. There's another version (also titled Gaslight) from 1940 that's supposed to be even better. Supposedly MGM tried to destroy the negative of this earlier British version after deciding to do the remake.

    Will, nice photo, and that's a beautiful garden. Those SPP settings are similar to what I've been using. I used to apply sharpness in SPP, but have recently left it for Lightroom since I tend to use it anyway for additional processing. I tend to adjust the contrast and fill light, as you did, in SPP while the image is still in RAW format.

    MisiekBunnik, that's a terrific shot. Now I don't know whether to go with the Tiffen adapters or wait for Sigma's recently announced close-up lens (http://www.dpreview.com/news/0805/08...gmacloseup.asp).

    What sized filter thread will the DP1 close up adapter be? The Canon 250D and 500D are excellent close up lenses and come in various sizes the smallest being 52mm. The 500 is +2 and the 250 is +4

    According to dpreview.com, the filter size will be 46mm. It requires the optional hood adapter (HA-11), so the camera will be a bit bulkier.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Thank you all for your comments on the macro!
    I do not know if the sigma close up will be better than the Tiffen set... We wiil have to wait untill people start comparing it. I do not see any vignetting or softness in the corners of my shots though.

    additional info for those who use the adapter and filters: the hama 46mm supersnap is said to fit even inside the lenshood... This is an example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-Lens-Ca...1784549&sr=1-9

    This is a stunning photo, one of the best. Especially if this was a living beast that could fly off at any minute. Excuse my ignorance, what is Tiffen +4+2+1 ??

    They are close up lenses and each one has a different magnification. They are an easy way to work on macro shots with cameras where you can't change lenses or where you don't have a dedicated macro lens. They look like filters and can be stacked on top of each other to increase the magnification (so this combo was a +7). If you look through them it is exactly like looking through a magnifying glass.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Toss up between it and the GRDII but I need something small to play with. Just not sure . The DP1 seems to have a color issue from some of the posts here which bothers me a little. I wonder if a new firmware is coming to fix that

    Wish I knew someone at Sigma to test one of these for the forum.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    During my recent trip to California, I had meetings at DreamWorks. We weren't allowed to snap any photos, except during a brief tour of the outer buildings. This was around 3:30 p.m., so the light wasn't optimal (the DP1 often doesn't perform well in bright, high-contrast light).

    Here's another one from Hollywood. This one is more experimental. It's a 2 second exposure from my hotel window. The shot was handheld, though I was able to steady the DP1 against the window pane.
