Preliminary testing of the 50 mm Art lens versus the DP3M
1 month ago

I just picked up Kendall's DP3M today with the objective of shooting targets to use to compare and contrast the differences between the DP3M and the SDIM using the 50 mm ART lens. The first problem I ran into was I did not know how to properly operate the DP3M. I spent an hour or 2 making bad photos; mis-focused, over and under exposed and difficulty focusing and framing on the screen. I learned that you need to be very careful how you handle the camera; a misplaced finger or thumb can change the focus setting or add unwanted exposure compensation. I shot in auto focus, because I could not use the screen to focus in the outdoor setting I was shooting.

I think I got the hang of it now and here are a few shots from today. I am planning a mountain trip tomorrow and will get, hopefully, more interesting subjects to shoot. So far I see little difference in detail capture between the cameras. There is a large difference in the color out of the cameras, I will discuss this more after I have had a chance to do more shooting.
