Homage to old Foveon magic (SD14)
After seeing samples of SD1 (
and others) I want to remind everyone to great qualities of previous Foveon. It was 4,6 mpx and it was enough for me and for Sigma lenses. All I really needed from my SD14 was better performance in low light and higher usable ISO. Than maybe more speed. With SD1 Sigma has lost.
Viva the last balanced Foveon!
Realy nice photos... The colour, the details, etc... I also have a SD14... yours must be of a better batch!
It is not the equipment, is my lack of skill that matters!
Totally enjoy your beautiful Sigma photos.
If you've printed some of them, what would you say is the largest you can print and retain that special Foveon look?
Thanks for sharing.
The most important aspect of Foveon is rich tonality and natural contrast. It´s not digitally stretched.
A2 format is perfect, if you use double size export from SPP. Maybe even A1 or bigger, but I didn´t try it. Depends on lens quality and good exposure for smooth tonality. Postproduction can also make a lot (especially gentle noise reduction and sharpening).
Beautiful stuff! Anything with that sensor really can produce stunning photographs and we see them here on this forum every day. The more the better!
Great collection from a classic camera.
Please see my FW Stockyard expedition with SPP5.
A bad day of train chasing is better than a good day at work.
Awesome collection of photos Petr: Thanks for the reminder and for sharing your beautiful images. The portrait of the flamingo is startlingly sharp, a real wow.
If you can see the light, you can photograph it
