  • Hello, This morning I was out shooting and flipped through my display options to active the histogram which is usually on. While I was shooting I noted I had both histogram and over exposure...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    I appreciate the excellent responses.  I will bookmark this.   I especially appreciate the explanations or rationale for your settings. While I love the dp1m, my Lightroom experience with the files...
  • Created discussions Optimize for Lightroom
    I'm rather sure this topic has been discussed to death but I would couldn't find the information by searching.  If you have a link that would help, that's great. I use a Sigma Dp1m.  I currently...
  • Replied in Bracket?
    A very nice composition, well done. I haven't really gotten a bracket from my Dp1m that really gave me something special.  With my Oly E-M5, I can get great results when shoot big DR like this. I...
  • Just to make sure everyone is on the same page here.  The camera's histogram does not truly represent the RAW data as it is based on the in camera jpeg rendering and your camera software or other...
  • Replied in Blotches?
    That's an interesting call.  I do see what I would describe as red-ish spots, kind of a color shift it appears.  It doesn't really hurt the image but it's definitely ghostly and present. That's...
  • Replied in Blotches?
    Nope, I don't see them either.  But would like to know if there's something I've missed!
  • Created discussions DP1m at the Beach
    This trip to the ocean was different as I carried both my Oly EM-5 and my Sigma.  The Sigma around my neck and the Oly on the tripod.  The Sigma brought home my favorite shot on this trip.  The...
  • Replied in Good Exposure
    I like how you handled the highlights here, all well protected and I don't see any noise in the shadows.  These are good exposures which can be difficult in these situations.   I also noted your...
  • In Lightroom I've seen the same effect if the de-fringe was on or too high.
  • Being from a computer background has probably affected my approach.  So, I believe the personality of the photography is a major player in this.  I love hearing the different viewpoints. I do...
  • Replied in Excellent
    It's great that you've chosen to share these and your composition talent with us.  Thank you.   They ARE exceptional and wow, how many different opportunities you had in such a short time, simply...
  • Replied in Good work!
    Thank you for providing this comparison, I think you've matched the relative quality of the lenses well. I shoot with the E-M5 for landscapes exclusively and know where the weak points are, namely...
  • Seems' totally illogical to have built in HDR capability without auto align...? Meant only for tripod use then?
  • Writing words to people I'll likely never meet, I can be as crazy as I want, right? Okay, not today. Photography has literally changed my life for the better. But it makes me do all kinds o' crazy...
  • I understand your frustration and these days it's unacceptable to charge before shipping. BUT, I must say the title to your post led me to believe that you had the camera and were disappointed... I...
  • Here we are again!   When it came to photography, it was going to be the hobby where I let the technical slide and solely concentrate on the artful expression.  Put that sucker on AUTO and let 'er...
  • Replied in Number 4 for me
    First, it looks like your .JPGs worked well, they rendered beautifully. While my favorite is #4 because of the layers of texture and color, they are all nicely framed/composed/exposed. Well done!
  • The 12-50 is a wonderfully versatile lens, I use mine a lot and have many primes also.  All of the lenses you are considering are really good, the banding isn't an issue EVER for me shooting...
  • Again the responses here seem to fall into two camps.  Those that really understand how digital exposure works and those that seem to think it works just like film. The final product is not limited...
