  • I think the SD15 has the biggest buffer, so you can get enough shots in a row quickly, but it's not a Merrill. I have not heard of any of the Merrills being fast.
  • great shots Larry.  I'm thinking that an SD1, with any number of the Sigma lenses, would be a pet photographer's dream. Maybe the 18-35? The details in the fur are just wonderful.
  • Replied in results similar
    to what Tom Schum had with Sigma vs Fuji. I think this is very much about the low pass filter
  • That would be quite a nice back yard. It's a community park, so in a way it is mine to enjoy (with the other 45,000 people that live in our town).
  • I've shot full spectrum with my sd14, and then used only the red channel to more closely approximate an IR. I don't have any examples on hand, since it's been a couple years, and I'm not at the...
  • I can see exactly what you are talking about. I prefer the image from the DP2 as well. The X-E1 looks flat, even though they are both 2 dimensional images. I think that's the elusive Foveon...
  • Replied in vintage Foveon
    at least in digital camera years... Or maybe classic would be better. Beautiful image Lin. I've always liked the sd9/sd10 coloring in golden hour photos.  Thanks for sharing it. -John
  • The color adjustment setting only handles color offsets, but if you use a grey card and set the camera with a CWB, I think it handles lighting pretty well. I know it was essential with the SD14,...
  • I wonder if you would still get the lens deal from Sigma that was offered to those who purchased the non-merrill...
  • around $1600
  • I have been watching prices on ebay. Most US online/retail is around $2100 for body alone. Ebay had sellers in Japan with worldwide shipping, selling bodies for $950, until the announcement of the...
  • I think the 17-70 2.8-4 and the SD14 are a good match. But it depends on what you plan to shoot. The 70mm macro is very nice. My favorite set of lenses for the SD9/SD14 are 10-20mm, 15-30mm,...
  • An interesting flower - Loropetalum chinensis - I have only started seeing them in the last few years. I've been playing with a few old lenses. Petri 50mm 1.8 Petri 35mm 2.8 Vivitar 200mm 3.5

  • Lasse, I think these are good examples of the type of photo where Foveon adds something 3D to the feel of the image. I have similar photos of orchid flowers, and tried side by side with a Canon...
  • Replied in Tulip Magnolia

  • just keep using my trustworthy SD9 until I decide.  I often wonder if I should just buy as many SD9's as I can on eBay, enjoy the ride, and have plenty of backups, in case they start breaking. I am...
  • Replied in Tulip Magnolia
    This flower is usually blooming just prior to the last frost of the season (which often spoils the flowers just after they bloom). This time the cold came, but not quite to a frost, in the low 40's...
