  • Makes me want to go there again :)
  • I find this very interesting and haven´t seen it posted here.  Highly recommended.

  • Created discussions Quattro simulation
    To be honest, I am a bit skeptical about the new Sensor design in terms of resolution, though I´m very curious to see actual images. I just tried to simulate the resolution, using a crop from an...

  • I used DMap, somehow the result looked nicer to me than PMax. I focused manually, just turned the focuswheel a tiny bit further with any shot.
  • Created discussions Dragonfly, DP3M focusstacked
    Taken with the DP3M at 1/320s, f8, 8 shots, focusstacked with zerene stacker. I found that dragonfly dead in my garden and put it on a light table under direct sunlight.
  • Yes, CWB was the most accurate indeed. And since in CWB the colors in the three cams are almost identical, I wonder why it shouldn´t be possible to get the colors identical in the wired color modes...
  • Hi Kendall, you are right, forgot about that. Color mode on all shots was set to neutral. If you want to spent a day doing as you proposed, I will be happy to send the RAW-files to you via Dropbox.
  • Hi Øyvind, I didn´t try calibrating the DP´s yet, should I ever do, I´ll let you know.
  • Created discussions DPM-colors reviewed
    I took images with all WB-settings except bulb with all the DPM´s, all settings and colorspaces equal. Subject was a print of an image in a window-lit room, all cameras set to 0.6sec. f4 ISO100...
  • I just updated all 3 cameras and found the color response is still different.  I set all cameras to the exact same settings and got the same differences as before. The colors of the DP3M are much...
  • Created discussions Now thats funny ...
  • I think the DP3 produces pretty accurate colors if needed. In those flower shots, I don´t think accuracy is what is needed, at least I don´t want it. I rather want the floweers to look good ;) The...
  • I used it here and it worked well in t/l-mode:
  • Created discussions More flowers on my desk (DP3M)
    Since my job doesn´t allow me to shoot more than snaps these days, the only stuff I shoot are the flowers on my desk, placed there by my lovely wife every other day. Most of them shot at f16:
  • >the Editors Awards were given to the Canon EOS 6D and Sigma's DP Merrill series of compacts.

    Wouldn´t it be time for the dpreview team to review the DP Merill series?

  • I second that plea. Especially the second point would solve a lot of post processing problems. But, since many here asked for that feature desperately for years, I have little hope for any change...
