    Re: Sigma DP1

    Thanks Helen, Brian, and Wouter.

    I was lucky -- not only to have this view from my hotel room -- but also to try it at this particular time of day. The sun had just set, yet there was enough ambient light to illuminate the sky and some of the areas off the street.

    I have another technology tradeshow in Las Vegas coming up. Maybe I'll bring a lightweight tripod and attempt similar shots of the Vegas strip from the sidewalk.

    Wonderful shot David !

    I just discovered the free ShiftN program and I just had to try it on this one, hope you don't mind.

    Here's a quick automatic "fix":

    BTW, the file you posted has aRGB embedded.

    hermie, no, I don't mind. It's interesting to see ShiftN in action. It does give the image a very different feel.

    I didn't realize I was exporting in aRBG (AdobeRGB) from Lightroom. That's the default setting, apparently. Thanks for catching it. I'll export again with an sRGB color space and overwrite the files on the server.

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Thanks, Lili.

    Pushing the camera against the window (and holding my breath) worked well as a makeshift tripod. I also took several exposures and processed the sharpest one. I was surprised it came out as well as it did, as the sub-par LCD screen on the DP1 isn't a very good guide for judging image quality.

    David, It does work well indeed.
    Have you gotten and tried out the optical finder yet?
    My flicker set about the Queen Cover Band "Queen for a Day";
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/colette...7604988502717/
    was almost entirely shot in 3:2 usingthe CV 28mm finder.
    My batteries were low so I shut off the LCD on my GRD and used the finder.
    Worked quite well really, all things considered

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Lili, I haven't tried an optical finder on the DP1.

    I did buy the Ricoh GV-2 optical finder for my GRD2, though I rarely use it. I wear glasses for seeing at a distance. Pressing my eye against the optical viewfinder requires me to take off my glasses. It's much easier to leave my glasses on, hold the camera away from me, and use the LCD screen.

    I do keep the GV-2 on the GRD2 in case the batteries are low, or sunlight fades the LCD. I've thought about moving it over to the DP1.

    Watched the slideshow of the Queen for a Day band. Whatever you're doing, keep doing it. The framing makes you feel like you're smack in middle of the action. It's an excellent series.

    David,
    Thanks so much!!!
    I imagine the DP-1 with the LCD off and the GV-1, using scale focus, would be a seriously stealthy camera!

    This one was snapped six minutes after the other hotel window photo. Rather than duplicate the color processing from before, I thought I would try it in black and white. I wanted to give it a tabloid "Hollywood Confidential" look.

    Did you add that?

    Re: Sigma DP1

    Lili, I was twirling the dials, and a byproduct was an increase in grain with the sky. I could have reduced that by bringing down the exposure or brightness, or make it less edgy by reducing the sharpness or sharpness detail, but every time I tried that, I preferred it more this way. It's probably a tad too sharp and grainy. [I made that adjustment to the file on the server.]

    I didn't expect this one to come out as good as the other one. Just thought it would interesting to see where else it could go.

    I'm a bit late to the party (bogged down with work), but I really like that last flower shot from your garden, Ronald. The red flowers in the background are almost three-dimensional.

    Thanks, Helen. If this one suggests a Kurosawa film, it would probably be Hidden Fortress.

    I'm going through my files from the Boulder trip, looking for images that might work well in B&W.

    Thanks David and... I Envy your location! I also want to be that close to the nature... Here in the netherlands everything is so crowded...

    from my backyard.. again.. The quality of the DP1 is still such a surprise to me, but i also missed a few shots on auto focus, now I only use manual, I think she wants me to do it manually... lol

    That's a mighty fine shot, Ronald. The colors are especially rich against the black background. The flowers and leaves are sharply focused.

    Did you use a close-up lens (or lenses) for this one?

    Thanks David, I enjoy your view on your part of the world with much joy!
    Yes, The Tiffen close up set I use is a stacked +4+2+1, and I use them a lot, so easy to screw on the adapter and you're away! for these kind of shots I always use flash, but a bit decreased in power and of course, use manual focus...

    @will, love your square picture, where can i find more of your flickr (square) images?

    Thanks so much! I really love this camera. My SLR is a Pentax K10D, but the DP1 is making me look hard at a SD14. Anyhow here are a few from from a walk around a forest preserve today.





    This is 3 vertical shots pano'ed together, I love how the DP1 renders clouds, it's so clear.

    I visited Las Vegas this past week for the InfoComm tradeshow. Stopped by the Adventuredome again to see what kind of shots would turn up.

    This one was shot at ISO 50, which was added to the DP1 recently through the 1.03 firmware upgrade.
