    First shots with DP1

    I have been reading the forum for a month now and ended up with a new DP1! It arrived yesterday and I just had take a few pictures with it.
    Here are a few I managed to process through Sigma Photo Pro which I used the first time (mostly on automatic).

    Normally I take pics with people and on the street. Any comments are welcome.

    Congratulations. It looks like you're off to a very good start. Those are nice shots. I especially like the first and last ones. Keep it up, and post more!

    Geeze Roel, I'm very sorry for you....but alas it's too late.....you are now starting to discover the MAGIC of the Sigma DP1.....us addicts around here all know each other and help to support each other by sharing knowledge and images.......

    Our numbers grow slowly but surely.......in fact you just increased it by 1....

    welcome and you have good vision and now the right camera to record it.....

    Good stuff... I agree about the first and the last of the set.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and the positive replies. I agree with the comments and actually like the first pic best.

    Will keep you posted with more pictures in the future. Probably I will post some specific questions too. Have to run now (but have the DP1 in my pocket!)

    Regards,
    Roel

    Roel,
    like them all. Certainly the DP1 helps make great images.

    Re: First shots with DP1

    Congrats on the DP1. I've sold my first one, tried DSLR and then went back to the DP1. It's funny most of your shots are vertically framed...I do that a lot as a way to isolate particular subjects (since the DP1 has no zoom).

    A good start Roel. I in particular like the first photo. Was that photograph taken in Naarden?

    Hoi Roel,

    It looked like Naarden to me. But a google search on 'Ochse Zwembaden' did the rest

    Always great to see Dutch photographers here

    Re: First shots with DP1

    So far I like the camera but must say I think the little Ricoh GRD handles/feels better. Just received the adapter with hood. Probably it will help holding the DP1 but I am considering adding the grip I have seen.

    Here are some shots with people. Spring gives a nice vibe with more people outside. These are during lunchtime around the WTC in Amsterdam. (The shots in the sushi place were 800 Iso, All shots at 4.0.) I like the colors it draws.
