richard stone's recent activity

  • But the real question is whether you, or anyone, can produce good images from the (SD1M) sensor. There is plenty of evidence that the Sigma/Foveon sensors can produce superb and, in the right ...
  • Thanks for posting this. As a happy SD10 owner I was pleased at how well the SD10 did: I could not expect it to match all the detail shown by the DPM camera, but it looks sharp and crisp, which is ...
  • A very good image. Thanks for posting. Richard
  • I certainly am not privy to any internal or even external discussions by Sigma people, but I doubt if Sigma thought that the DP series would be the "hit" that it turned into. For them. In relative ...
  • I like the first attempt. To me it seems more atmospheric. As you noted, the light was limited. Richard
  • I like both images, but the second one more. It looks like too much contrast, but then, that's kind of the good (interesting) thing about the image. Thanks for posting these. Richard
  • I had a big problem with the battery drawer, now repaired, I think. Or hope. The colors are excellent. People are still impressed with the images. Richard
  • with your feelings on the matters you discuss. It's how you feel. Personally, as someone with an SD10, and an Oly Epl-1 (micro four thirds...), and a new iphone, I far prefer the images from the Sigma.
  • Thanks for your article and the helpful comparisons. I know that one aspect of the increased pixel counts is the greater resolution, which seems like it would only matter if easily perceived, such ...
  • I'm with Kendall. Most BIF shots are just still. Birds in the air. The sparkles in the first one are a welcome treat. I mean, is it a lens test or an image? Richard
  • Yes??
  • I think it makes sense just fine. It's too easy to think that there is just one right decision for everyone...which is, of course, the one "you" would make as being utterly and completely logical. ...

    So the image on your screen, the image you like, has a brighter (better?) green color than the one that shows on my screen. As I see it, each of us has some preferences for how much contrast and ...

    Looking at that last image, there is no doubt that the building and the brown tones look a lot better. But in that image the green from the foliage does not seem to be properly green. It seems too ...
  • Replied in More explains
    I like your last image better. I have read about "palette" changes with SD15, and I know my SD10 has excellent color. One key to the images from Foveon is the vibrancy of the color. I think your ...
  • How many times has this been the subject of various threads and concern? One is put in mind of the letter from Mark Twain, that the report of his death was an "exaggeration." Clearly this Olympus ...
  • Yes, and what Sigma has done over the past few years is unusual and remarkable, because they have entirely changed the image and perception of their company and products. People are enthusiastic ...
  • At this point the DP series (Does the P stand for pocket?) has past the point of having its main virtue be that it is small, and instead is simply a very good camera. For any size. I'm not that ...
  • As I see this, MF is not exactly or even mainly about the pixel count (although most sensible people would expect some increase in pixel count compared to a smaller sensor...), it is about the ...
  • The English is quite satisfactory. Thanks for your translation. It is very interesting if even higher resolution can be obtained from the quattro sensor.
