    DP1 in Pergamon

    Who said DP1 can't shoot history? Yes, we all know it can. I played the ignorant toting a funny small point-and shoot camera, eyed unenthusiastically by DSLR-carrying ladies and gentleman in Bergama (Pergamon), near İzmir (Smyrna).
    Best,
    Osman

    Osman

    #2 Particularly stands out for me - I like the ancient stone hallway look - I'd probably do a slight rotate to the left just a tad, but I feel #3 seems to have that DP2 or foveon looking pop to it - was I right about it being DP2?

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    You're definitely right on the flawed horizon on the second shot, Tim.
    All shots by DP1, with a little help from Color EfexPro. I'm still considering a DP2 purchase, by the way.
    Thanks for the input.

    Excellent series Osman, I particularly like the third image with the beautiful light and almost 3D DP1 effect.

    Thank you, Will. When your subject has that classical beauty and you have the right light, it is not easy to go wrong

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    Great! The "negative fill light?" of 1, is amazing, but the natural light of number 2 and 3 is amazing and make the subject really shine.

    I really can recommend the dp2, i do own both and the dp2 gets more of the action, although i do like the quick set button option on the dp1 better than the QS button on the dp2. also the dp2 files look a bit more digital in my opinion... But they make a perfect couple.

    Really great series Osman and those columns are great for the amount of detail the DP1 picked up. These little cameras take great photos if you are not in a hurry.

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    Osman,
    lovely set. I wouldnt worry about the horizon nr 3. There are so many lines in there.
    Brick wall, stone wall, the stones on the columns, the lines in the grass , the hills.All are
    different. Theres a lot going on !.
    Really like nr3 and 2.
    Who needs a DSLR! Unless you have a bag of lens's , a patient wife/companion and time,
    you cant better a good fixed lens camera. The only thing that can really help most times is a tripod.

    all the ebst

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    I guess if a post gets enough comments I'll finally see it... and I'm glad I did. I'm partial to 2 and 3, as many others are... but they're all lovely.

    Thanks for posting these.

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    hi osman, can't believe it. tried the sd9 and didn't like the way it handled. ordered the sd14 over the weekend and cancelled it this morning. yes, thinking of trying the dp2 again. i really could have used it last week. the tighter lens would have cut down on too many dynamic blowouts between the tree shade and the sunlight (had to crop a lot, which i will do if necessary but i really am lazy and like to get it right in the camera). i do wonder what the sd15 will be like. supposed to be out this month.

    i do have a question for those with both dp cameras. the dp2 i tried was new and the focus mechanism really a loud grind. did i test a lemon?

    thanks.

    ps. i've looked at a lot of sd photos on the web and compared them at the same time the dp's. they just don't have the snap and clarity of the latter, even with alternative lenses like leica.

    Thank you, Don, and thanks to the many commentators who made your visit possible
    You are one of the few people who continue to inspire me, especially with the DP series.
    Wayne, I do have an SD14 and regret to say that it is a poorly designed camera, with mediocre results. I wonder what the SD15 will be like...

    Osman, gorgeous, evocative and timeless at once.
    I love the magical light of the third on the corridor/stair of the second especially

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    Thank you, Lili. What you say is very motivating.
    I also shot with a Nikon D700+50/1.4 simultaneously, and can easily say that both cameras have their distinct advantages. Needless to say, DP1 shots have a magic of their own.

    Well, I have both and they are both...lemons... The dp1 focus grind is not so noisy. The dp2 with newest firmware really is quicker in focussing , but also a bit louder. So, No, you did not test a lemon, that's the way they are...

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    I am on the market for DP2s and was told that it has a much quieter focusing. Anybody has this new gem?

    Re: DP1 in Pergamon

    hi osman,
    interesting you should ask. just went through this very exhaustive thread.

    http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=35015170

    somehow there's no consensus but i figure it's wiser (if you have it) to spend the extra money for the latest.

    good luck. may buy one myself. one thing to think about. the menus very different (no customizable buttons) and so to go back and forth between the dp1 and dp2s might be a bit of a head twister. (yet that could stave off alzheimers, keeping your brain working.)
