  • Hulyss, Thank you for your constructive input. Re DRC, interesting information I did not know.  BTW I paid for it. Regards, James
  • Thank you, I thought this would get you all talking. I can assure you that to my eyes the Quattro has captured accurately bronze oxidation. :-D
  • Here is an ISO 800 shot for you. Not quite the same as yours of course, but gives you a bit of an idea. Sharpening -1.0, NR off in SPP 6.0.4. Green and aqua tweak as before, green channel ...
  • I think the far detail looks very good in this image.
  • Here are the full size JPEGs. Re your ISO 800 test, if others don't I will try. Kind regards, James PS: Cockatoos are very hard to photograph, bringing contrast issues.
  • Created discussions DP2 Quattro ISO 400
    Two quick shots from yesterday in the garden. Afternoon light was poor and conditions overcast. Latest SPP 6.0.4 on auto, sharpness -1.0, with NR off. Original greens were too grey-green in this ...
  • Yes, I took the liberty of testing your green channel sharpening on one of Arne's images - very pleased with the results.
  • "All photos convertes to tiff in SPP 6.0.4 under auto, nothing else done there ... and then some pp in LR 5.5." Sorry I don't know the specifics for Arne's pp workflow in LR 5.5
  • Thank you, Rick, I think you have made an important discovery. Green sharpening seems to add more M-like definition to the whole image. Couple this with the post processing that Arne Marco used to ...
  • “…the Quattro has something Merrill-esque waiting to be unleashed…” Nicely put. I certainly hope so. I for one would sacrifice write speed and battery life (if I had to) for the old Foveon pop and ...
  • Another big like for me is implementation of Manual mode, where the effect of any changes made to shutter speed or aperture are actually seen in real time on the LCD screen. I think this is a ...
  • Hulyss, I think you have captured the essence of the major issue with the Quattro as currently configured. Further,  you offer an innovative solution. I hope your message draws attention. Regards, ...
  • My experience entirely. I am having a devil of a time with color management on the DP2Q and SPP 6.0.3 for Mac, which is not such an issue with the DP2M on SPP 5.5.3.
  • Thank you, Seng, a lovely image. I really can imagine touching the flower petal texture (and it is only a JPEG!). The "Look - the way the camera draws" reminds me of the SD9 & SD10: to me very ...
  • The Berber on the Mountain is one of the best portrait shots I have seen. Without words I can feel the seamless connection of the man with the mountain. Beautifully executed. James
  • Nice images, but sorry, they look plastic to me (not just the first one). I will wait for the DP Quattro and Sony A7s as a combo to consider, assuming I can find a good quality compact lens for ...
  • Thank you, Hardy. You are right, it is about 15% rye. I prefermented concentrated rye for a couple of months in the refrigerator and used that only, along with organic white wheat flour and ...
  • Good spotting, Tom. It is polypropylene coated kevlar mesh to keep out the bugs, a Florida room in US parlance - useful in our climate.
  • Thank you for your kind comments. I never thought to photograph the sandstone wall itself - must do it some time.  Greetings from suburban Brisbane, Australia . Regards, James
  • SPP, sharpness minus 1, no chroma, luminance, or banding pass . A reflector may have given better light on the crumb:-)
