    New here.. some dp3Q shots.

    Hi all.

    I've been reading on and off here for a while now and in fact it was reading and viewing images on this site that started me on my Foveon journey and left my pentax stuff gathering dust most of the time.

    While I have been shooting with Merrill cameras for a while now, I just wanted to take some time and share some random shots of an old plastic watch, some outdoor stuff and a few studio shots that I have taken with the Dp3Q.

    Overall I'm rather enjoying the camera and really like the new backwards grip, sensor wise it is different it has quality I like but I also miss that Merrill look.

    The quality of work on this forum is outstanding so hopefully my images don't disappoint, I Will be happy to answer any questions anyone has as I always like to help people when I can.

    Well done Paul,

    I was worried when I saw the first four frames. The close up with big bokeh (sadly replicated a thousand times on this forum) and two landscapes that, nice though they were, could have been taken on my wife's Ricoh GR.

    Then some unusual and imaginative images that (a) were out of the ordinary and (b) clearly could not be the work of a GR. Lovely and clearly the work of a pro.

    It is hard to show, on any web site, the true difference between a foveon image and a conventional one - but these last shots at least prove that, in the hands of a pro, foveon certainly holds its own.

    Keep posting Paul. You are an inspiration (to me at least).

    Tony

    Thank you!

    The first four images really are just snapshots while I was walking around with the camera, I've been testing it against my k3 and I personally feel at low iso the Merrills and Quattros are much better for what I do anyway, I did try using the Quattro last night at iso400 in not so good lighting and it didn't fair as well as I had hoped with the k3 (admittedly with an f1.4 prime lens) doing much better.

    Still the reason I love Foveon is for times when I'm setting up shots and using low iso and for that I don't think I would want anything else really , except well a larger Foveon sensor
