    Inquisitive bullocks. They asked a lot of questions about my DP3M and how it compared to the new DP3Q. They were concerned about highlight clipping. This shot taken straight into the afternoon sun.



    Edit: I now notice some purple fringing!

    Acer palmatum Atropurpureum into the Sun. The focus is a bit off or maybe the tree was moving. It's not quite right but the colours are.

    I like the detail in focus, but dislike the bokeh highlight shape and structure. And the latter is the reason that keeps me away from getting a DP3. It seems to work well in a studio type shots though.

    Dzmitry,
    One of the benefits I have experienced when shooting the SD1M is the choice of lenses. I still love my little bricks (DP Merrills), but I am finding I shoot with the SD1M more because I have a choice of lenses (and bokeh).

    I hope you are getting your kit together!

    Kind regards,
    Darr

    Sigma could have done better yes, maybe simple with more aperture blades. But I do not really know a lot about the engineering of lenses, does the leaf shutter compromise? I dont know.

    Darlene, I still enjoy shooting DP2M as well. My kit is pretty much all set: a850+28/1.8 & 85/1.4; DP2M & Pentax67+105/2.4. 28mm cries for an Art version though.

    SD1M does provide a greater lens choice, but all the best Sigma lenses are designed for a full frame sensor, that Foveon is unable to brace till this day. Yet even at their full image circle they don't make me excited. I'm talking about Sigma's 35/1.4 Art, 50/1.4 Art, 85/1.4 that I tried on different FF bodies. I don't doubt they are among the best in their class/focal length. I'm sure they can get the job done with satisfying results. I can get those with an underdog 28/1.8. But none of them make me excited enough to invest into a body to shoot with. I have plenty of cameras already for my modest needs. And I must add that a 6x7 film redefined my personal image quality standards that a current state of 35mm sensor and lens market barely meets, besides a convenience factor, of course. Pixel-level sharpness has nothing to do with it.

    It's not just the number of blades that may spoil the bokeh rendering. Shoot wide open and it will show that busy, high contrast bokeh spiced with onion rings in highlights and harsh transitions into out of focus areas anyway (not in all scenarios). DP2M is even worse than DP3M in this regard. Yet we still try to make the best out of the tools available to us and somehow succeed despite some of their rendering deficiencies. Images posted in this sub forum prove it.

    Yes all lenses can throw up odd weird and peculiar rendering at times. I certainly have some Dp3 shots where I have liked the OOF rendering, but these things are subjective and thankfully so, or we'd all get very bored very soon.

    An experiment. Irises shot straight into the sun. I don't like the messy out of focus areas but the Irises are fab.

    maybe you applied something like "local contrast" from "color FX", this looks good on parts in focus but bad on parts out of focus, so its better to apply via a mask.

    [QUOTE=The Smoking Camera;633196]Picked up a Sigma Merrill Dp3.
    Seems like a nice camera so far.
    A couple of b&w images using the blue filter to reduce noise at iso 1600 and 3200.
    And a color image at iso 200.

    iso 1600 f2.8 1/125



    iso 3200 f2.8 1/320




    Joe, I wanna know exactly what your dp3m is smoking? Tell me about the blue filter, please. Is it an actual blue filter on camera or something in post? These are gorgeous.

    Go to SPP monochrom mode and move the color wheel all the way down to 100% blue. Now SPP is taking most of the information from the top layer.
    (This is only working properly with Merrill files, Quattro takes no advantage from it)

    Biblical sky over Oxfordshire. I dropped the exposure down in SPP and converted to TIFF and then a bit of noise reduction in Lightroom. That was it. SPP seems to develop files of sky in a very dramatic manner.
