    Not so much a landscape, rather more of a cityscape / suburbscape.

    This is a stitched panorama taken with the DP2M from one of Wellington's many hill suburbs. The rare thing this day was that there was no wind, not even up here. That's something that doesn't occur often in a city slap bang in the middle of the roaring forties....

    One thing I have noticed about the DP2M photos is the way it renders clouds - quite different from many other digital cameras. I can't explain what it is; maybe it's all in my imagination?

    Great shot and I agree there is something special with the way Foveon renders sky and clouds. Sea and water too, for that matter.

    Nice shot. I lived in Auckland for a year. Wonderful country.

    It is not your imagination.

    I believe it has to do w the overall perfection of the DP2 lens sensor combo.

    They are world class.

    The resolution and micro detail lead to a very strong 3D-like quality.

    It is not easily replicated.

    These little Merrill's are a wonder. Nothing can really touch them for the price.

    They are on a par w the D800E and new Sony A7r.

    I'd estimate their effective MP rate at somewhere between 24 and 30 MP.

    Pretty stunning.

    I have 24 x 36 blowups that are perfect.

    And remember the weight and price.

    Apologies for the long post but I love raving about these cameras.

    Here's some volcanic cones shot on a recent trip up north. The first two are on New Zealand's central volcanic plateau, the last is Rangitoto, a volcanic cone just off the coast of our largest city, Auckland. Shot with the DP2M.

    Paul-

    I used to be able to see Rangitoto from my balcony.

    We lived in Orakei. A suburb of Auckland.

    It was a nice sight.

    thanks for the memory.

    Re: DP Merrill color Landscapes

    Has anyone tried anamorphic lenses on their DP Merrill's? I'm assuming they would be unusable on the DP1M, and vignette heavily on the DP2M, but on the DP3M they might work well. Might give landscape shots that really wide FOV. I just bought an ISCO Ultra-Star for $40, so I'll try it out.

    Haven`t used my DP2M & 3M for some time with all the Sony A and god knows what distractions. A few with the DP3M and some slight tweaking in color efex. FF or not, there is still nothing which can touch the file quality from these cameras imho.

    Re: DP Merrill color Landscapes

    Just picked up a used DP2M. Any recommended best practices for color processing in SPP?
    Particularly correcting white balance and recovering highlights. Am I right in thinking I'm better off trying to recover highlight detail from the raw file in SPP before sending to 16 bit tif and lightroom? I've read that many people just batch process to tif and do all editing in lightroom, but that may leave some highlight detail behind.

    I haven't used the DP2M for some time until yesterday. I've mainly been using the A7 - I now find the DP2M too detailed and contrasty.

    What do you think?

    I like the Merrill version better.

    Can never have too much resolution.

    You can always tone down the saturation.

    I also give the DP my favor ... decreasing detail is more easy than increasing. I like the DP more in the lower half (field), the A7 gave a more dreamy sky. But you can get such a sky with a DP, too. Just lower color noise reduction, maybe increase luminance noise reduction and set fill light e.g. to -0.1. Especially color noise reduction and fill light in SPP give to much (local) contrast and detail to such cloudy skys, a tad too unnatural in most cases.

    So, make a second TIFF in SPP and swap the sky - my suggestion.

    Re: DP Merrill color Landscapes

    Louis,

    One thing that you can see the Foveon sensor do very well that CFA sensors struggle with is the 'detection' of narrow lines. It's not 'resolution' exactly, but you see how the power line in the background of the Sony 'winks out' in the middle---and you can see it more clearly in the DP2M.

    I vividly remember a photo taken a long time ago (after I had acquired an SD10)---a fisherman in a canoe on a very quiet pond. The comparison was an SD10 versus a Canon (D60?). The monofilament line from the fishing pole was beautifully clear in the SD10. In the Canon image, it disappeared after about 3 feet from the rod. It was an interesting example of the different capture methodologies.

    This is where to post color Landscapes, as opposed to B and W, w/o respect to
    camera, i.e. Dp1, 2, etc.

    I have to admit that some folks ideas of what constitutes a "landscape" photo are very different than my own.

    Happy shooting.

    Looking forward to your contributions.
