    Now after using it for a while, does it show product quality IYO?

    Change your video output to PAL from NTSC.

    It depends on what you are going to shoot.

    Not good for Macro IMO but fine for general Landscape framing.

    The product quality seemed fine to me.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I took my new (to me) DP3M on a recent trip to Wales, and played in Sigma Photo Pro later to come up with two alternatives to the same view. Normally I'd go for the first one as it shows the resolution to its full, but the second one is growing on me.

    The only difference in the processing was the Fill Light slider position. The first was set at about +0.2 and the set about -0.7. The negative value seems to give it a soft glow as well as darkening it down. My normal process is more like the first

    IMO #2 looks underexposed as a result and the distant hills unappealing.

    I much prefer the second version. The first describes the scene, the second provides a sense of the place. A version in between the two might be brilliant.

    Wife's Sangria

    Both are hand held. I'm pretty certain these are from the DP3M.


    I could use help in where the composition has gone wrong. I like the detail but this is a disappointment.


    Eh, okay I suppose but not print worthy.

    No offense Max because most of your work is great but that photo appears badly overexposed.

    Considering it's a DP3 the resolution and color could be quite a bit better IMO.

    Can't help you on how to post large images.

    Other than to say I started using "Dropbox" some of the time.

    Can post full-sized TIFF's that way.

    They were 26 years young.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    OK! OK! After being in love with my DP2M for a couple years and seeing all the fabulous photos on this thread, I ordered a DP3M last night ($650!?).

    Recently I have been playing with my Sigma 50mm art lens + d800e combination. WICKED. Sigma knows how to make lenses! Even my trusty DP2m is no match for that combo (beyond a ~20" x30" print).

    So for my long backcountry trips it is going to be the duo of DP2M + DP3M. I'm very interested in testing 3 shot vertical panos using the DP3M. Heck these two cameras combined probably weigh less than the just the Sigma 50mm art lens!

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I find the DP3M very tempting as a travel/walkaround camera, but I'm afraid that the AF and general slowness will be frustrating. Is it slow and frustrating?

    Simple answer: yes

    With moving subjects you have to prefocus.

    I carry all three DPMs as a travel kit. The DP1M and DP2M are better as general walkaround cameras in my opinion. My favourite is the DP3M but I tend to use it on static subjects and landscapes or on predictable moving subjects - it's a more about using it with some planning and intent rather than quick reaction.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Thanks for the feedback and tips on uploading. I tried to upload from flickr but could not. The max JPEG resolution of 1200 x 1200 for uploading seems awfully small.

    Here's a couple of shots from a recent trip to Angkor Temple complex in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

    If you wish to show your images here not as thumbnails, go to Gallery GetDPI Image Gallery and upload your resized typically 1200 pix on the shortest length, copy the link to your image and paste it in the *IMG* url ikon. That shows a nice file for evaluation, though not full size of course.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Proves nothing, of course... being jpegs and all, but the files on my monitor comport well with the differences I see in these posted images. All are nice, but there's just something special about the Merrill files!



    Sony a7r:



    Sigma DP3 Merrill



    Sony a900:



    All at base ISO
    All shot raw (Sigma converted to 16 bit tiff in SPP then brought into LR)
    All manual focused on the pen's clip
    Each image was given minor tweaks in LR5.x to get as good a match as I could.
    Tripod mounted (RRS w/BH-55)
    All with timer delay
    f/ stops adjusted to try to get close DOF between the Merrill & the Sonys, though I overcompensated w/ the Merrill and it has less DOF than the FF cameras... :-)
    All exported from LR as 100% quality jpeg, sRGB, Sharpen for screen

    Very good camparison. Thanks.

    It is the pop one get with the Foveon, but the Sony versions are not bad at all and would likely by a little careful curve tuning show more pop, but never get the look of the Foveon.

    I am always amazed at how smooth the bokeh is on the DP3M. Used at f3.2 it is, imho, drop dead gorgeous.

    Without that Fovoen image, one would have to guess how that metal owl really looked like.

    You're correct! I'm not one who talks much about "that 3D look" (as I think it is mostlly hot air), but in this case that actually is one of the major differences in rendering between the samples I posted.

    I own the a900 and love it. It is a very good tool and I own high quality glass from 16mm to 400mm. The versatility is fabulous and that huge and clear OVF is a marvel. It is a work horse and will stay in my stable until it dies a horrible death some day.

    I rented the a7r in order to see what all the hub-bub was about. At high ISO it seriously makes the a900 and the DP3 look like junk cameras. In AF speed, and versatility it also makes them seem pre-historic. But for me, it is the ultimate look and feel of the image "on paper" in a fine print that matters and the DP Merrills just can't be beat this side of about 20K $.

    The a7r goes back tomorrow and I have zero interest in buying one, now that I've spent some time with it.

    Rand, you say A7R AF is faster than one on a900? BTW, what lens did you use on a900/a7r?

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Picked it up two days back, this is my third digital cam. Only recently have I stopped using my Velvia slides with Minolta 9 and 9000 bodies and an assortment of Minolta G lenses. My other two cams are my RX100 and A7R, the later allows me to use my Minolta lenses.

    The DP3M has bought Velvia back into my life in the digital realm, just two days of using it is WOW enough for me. Some samples on my Flickr page.

    Thats the reason my A7R is being put up for sale, in terms of DSLR its the best out there and nothing comes close but for IQ, resolution its the Merrill all the way till SONY releases their upcoming 50MP in a A7R body.

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    I've been so pleased with the Dp2m I bought a week ago that I got the Dp3m on Friday. I took it to the Lake District this weekend for it's first outing, bit steeper learning curve than the Dp2m but I think we are going to get along alright....
