  • Joe, you give life to the DP2M. In its field of use that is a fascinating tool. But we too hastily internalized its "limits" by asking him too few and it is all too often confined to cushy uses. ht ...
  • Sigma SD1 Merrill Appareil photo numérique Reflex 46 Mpix + Objectif 17-50 mm F2,8 EX DC OS HSM de Sigma EUR 1 164,90
  • Great progress! So the Q went from sandy to hazy after the firmware update :-) :-) Seriously, Marco, for an enchanting landscape like this, D750 or D610 or K3 or 7D ... well... what that Sigma ...
  • Replied in Marianne Oelund
    http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55506565 Wise and clear, as usual :-)
  • Jozef is absolutely right: to be multi-system is the best antidote to sectarianism. And this is the only way to always have on hand the ad hoc system. Major drawback: if we produce bad photos, we ...
  • Replied in Foca Sport II
    http://elekm.net/pages/cameras/spotlight_foca_sportII.htm I have 3 of them, all in perfect working order. The lens is a Tessar type, low contrat : a dream with TriX.
  • Replied in dawnfields
    Marco: 'I don t care about the accurate reproduction of lights, about the purpose accurate reproduction of feeling and moods, at least that s my aim' It is much more explicit than what Proust ...
  • Replied in dawnfields
    Marco, Your visual exploration of Comacchio valleys reminded me of that phrase of Marcel Proust: The only true voyage, the only bath of youth, it would not be going to new landscapes but in having ...
  • Replied in Noice is Nice
    3 & 4 are really wonderful, full of creativity and classicism, which is not that simple. Ah! the heyday of Delta 3200 (Ilford). Since 2 years, I affirm and maintain that the N1 is the new Leica.  ...
  • Lea, this landscape is superb. Your low angle perspective reminds me of two completely different masterpieces: David Hockney's Garrowby hill Edvard Munch's Despair. Probably a question of mood?
  • In summary antibiotics are effective against noise at 3.2 K ISO ;-)
  • Replied in Holger
    This is one of the most practical and useful comments I've ever read here :-)
  • Paul thank you for this excellent essay. Having a K-01 whose AA filter is way lighter than that of your K5, I found exactly in the field the differences you have highlighted in the studio. K-01+ ...
  • I only use the DP2 Merrill and I confirm totally what Johan said. As Monochrome camera Merrills are simply amazing and so cheap!
  • Joe, Welcome to the dark side of the force. You enter into a fascinating world, epic and dangerous. You can flee while there is still time. But I know that you are fearless, notwithstanding I have ...
  • Marco, you understood me perfectly! But dwadle to your hearts content ;-) And moreover the Sigma are sooooo slowww, no choice!
  • Great wines always come from beautiful places. No exception! And More the wine is good More the place of origin is magnificent . It's an Universal law. Alba. That name is a dream per se: Alba Pompeia!
  • DOCG ? With snow, hills, sun no doubt! Nice vineyards indeed = kind of a paradises :-) Incidentally, one of my cousins who lives in Toulon have for name... Cuneo !
  • Thomas is absolutely right to insist on one point: DXO is a very powerful tool and you are always at risk of doing too much, and sometimes way too much. From this POV, LR & CC are much more ...
  • DXO Pro10 is actually an essential tool for pulling the quintessence of Nikon System 1.
