    DP1 high contrast landscape...

    I was really impressed with the DP1's handling of this scene from our outing yesterday...

    DP1, 1/160s f/8.0 iso100


    Great pixel level detail, great dynamic range... the lens is quite special, imho.

    Here's a 1:1 crop...


    Kind Regards

    Brian

    Terrific shot, Brian. I can almost hear the water gurgling.

    Thanks for including the 1:1 crop. That's a good way of conveying how much detail is captured by the camera and lens.

    Nice one Brian.

    I don't know about you but I find it really hard to judge the exposure from the screen in sunlight. Luckily it seems you can usually trust the camera to get it close enough because there is so much room for maneuver in the RAW file.
    I'm going to look for a screen shade I think.

    Hi Will, thanks - it's just a snapshot really, mainly due to not having an OVF attached, and not being able to see a damned thing on the LCD! LOL

    I would say, a live histogram may be on the way (requested on my thread on dpreview) but I've had some info from dave coffin - who is looking at dcraw reverse engineering the SD14 & DP1 which suggests the full size embedded jpegs reguire lots of processing to create - so a realtime histogram could require a different approach. Not impossible though!

    Cheers

    Brian
