    Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I really like the mood and the overall effect of the 'grain' for lack of a more precise term. Nice!

    Thank you, it was really dark and bad weather, for me the look of B&W is ok @ISO 3200,
    especially when I remember old days of film

    Upgraded SPP to v. 6.1 and there's no processing speed improvements for DP2M RAW files. The speed is identical. I'm on a W7 PC with way above SPP minimum requirements.
    What I did notice though is that the bug described in my earlier post has been fixed It's a good news for me since I like the features that Monochrome mode offers.

    On my lowly PC I find it seems to read the directory of files quicker, other than that it seems same speed to me also. I notice it installed in another directory so it can co-exist with SPP5.53.

    what I have learned in some years with Sigma, best is to copy the files you want to convert into an empty directory and open them from there.

    This is one of my first attempts at black and white using the DP3M. Final black and white processing in Tonality after initial conversion in SPP.

    On my Retina Macbook Pro, I can't see much speed difference with SPP 6.1. It does crash occasionally, whereas SPP 5.x never did.

    Here's a couple of SPP 6.1 conversions:

    Re: Foveon Sensor, SPP Monochrome - Images

    I found this DP2M review by Martin Zimelka quite interesting and useful especially for B&W photography. I haven't seen/read about anyone using color filters with foveon sensors before. So I got myself a red filter to try. The "Beacon" shot above is a straight SPP B&W conversion. Smooth skin and sharp textures everywhere else with 0 effort in post. The negative side of the filter is that DR becomes even more narrow. Slightly blown highlights are unrecoverable. Pulling shadows doesn't unveil extra detail. If you can compose your shot without clipping essential parts, the results can be rewarding. Here's a RAW sample shot with a red filter attached. Hope it helps someone else learn new horizons of the foveon.

    Good review by Martin, but I'd rather simply use SPP to convert to mono. That red filter example proves how very limiting the technique can be.

    Quentin these are superb, I feel shamed, living on the Cornish coast I take such
    scenery for granted passing by to often. Though a while ago I said to myself I must take advantage of our cliffs more and have not done so. Thank you for the reminder.

    Many thanks. We have a house near Launceston, and its nice to get down there when I can. I have admired your work in Mevagissey, you have a very compelling style

    OMG! All of these shots are so magnificent. I have some new shots from today, nothing as fancy as these. You all did such a beautiful job.

    This is Ozzy, my French Bulldog. Sigma DP3M ISO 400 due to possible dog movement and low light. F/4.0 1/125th second. Used SPP software to convert to Monochrome, then brought into Photoshop CS 6 for final tiff to jpeg conversion and some tweaking.

    And this is the mist I saw this morning outside my front door. Sigma DP2M ISO 200

    I do think the DP2M is a great mono camera. I have yet to find anything the Quattros can do that the Merrills cannot do better.
