  • Hope you're right-- may be a bit, they seem to have a bit on their plate viz software issues.
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    I just checked with my sigma flash, and you're right-- it's capping the exposure to 1/200.  That's... extremely silly, especially since it works just fine on the Nikon flash to have the action ...
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    Ah!  That's the difference, probably.  I was using my sb900 in gun mode.  The flash triggered at 1/1250 in shutter priority.  I did not use the sigma flash, let me dig that out and give it a shot. ...

    I'm beginning to wonder if there's something going on with your Q. I definitely got shots in the 1/1250 shutter speed (see my moving building shot), and I can take shots at faster than 1/200 using ...

    Yeah, misinterpretations that lead to obvious baiting, not sure what he's trying to accomplish here. Especially since I posted two shots of eyes, both taken at 1/160 of a second. Hrm. Erational, my ...
  • Possibly, but I was shooting indoors in the evening.  There may have been heat buildup because it was a longer exposure (1/3 sec).
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    Maybe.  I think we'll have to see if Sigma can fix their processing, since that seems to be a bit up in the air.

    Interesting.  I'm looking for some pretty good oof bokeh, and so far, using b+w flters hasn't really improved that too much.  I'm talking being able to see a fly's eye here. That's weird-- I would ...
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    Nice! It does make me wonder if I could put the Q into 'sd15 mode', where the blue layer is 2x2 binned and I'd essentially get a super-sensitive dp2s image.  It would certainly make shooting happen ...
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    That is a good question, I don't know.  The shot was near the end of the day, so it could have been.  If and when I manage to reproduce the issue, I'll post what I discover.
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    I did not.  The splotches don't appear to be there in the raws, just in the jpgs-- if only processing raws were as easy as the jpgs :) Fair enough.  Would you say your impressions matched mine, though?
  • Replied in My dp2q review
    This was with firmware 1.01; I flashed it before doing anything.  This problem showed up mostly in OOC jpgs; since SPP is pretty unusable for me, I'm sticking with those for the time being. I do ...
  • Created discussions My dp2q review
    I've read a bunch of these over the last few weeks, and I feel like there's a few more things I can add to the conversation. Namely, it doesn't look like people have really been the subject of ...
  • CoreImage != GPUImage.  He may decide to start doing that under the hood, but last I checked, it was all pretty much straight up OpenGL ES. Can you point me to a link about automatic tiling?  ...
  • It's a GL version issue. See here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5506426/rendering-large-textures-on-ios-opengl http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17186655/ios-retina-image-size-limit Basicall ...
  • I have a pretty fair amount of experience with GPUImage, having used it in two commercial apps for iOS.  It has a 4k x 4k size limit for its textures ingrained in the code, a problem that Brad ...
  • Very true.  I kind of want to get an sd1m so that I can put an 85 1.4 on there for portraiture, but man, it's hard to justify the price for a dedicated portrait camera.  Hence looking at the dp3m, ...
  • Fill Light looks to me to be a way of messing with pyramid coefficients .  That is, the various frequencies are separated from each other, and then the high and low intensity regions of the low ...
  • For what it's worth, I agree wholeheartedly with what you're saying.
  • Well, certainly not with that attitude. Seriously, from the rest of the discussion, it looks like a headless converter is the best place to start, especially given that Roland's already written big ...
