Enough with the DP1M and DP2M already!

...Just kidding. I just thought I'd show the SD1M some love, it seems to have been lost a bit in the DP brouhaha lately.

Here are some fun shots I took with the SD1M recently.

Wonderful shots. I love the colors. The last one is interesting (scary in a way) since it reminds me of the shots of atomic bomb tests!

Wow.... just WOW!

These are GREAT. Thanks for sharing.

Being a nerd, I'd like to know which lens(es) you used
(although the high quality of these images is obviously
due to the photographer!!!)

Greetings,
Robert

Re: Enough with the DP1M and DP2M already!

Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated.

I was using a 10-20mm F4-5.6

Interesting comment about the resemblance to a bomb MacroMD - I hadn't noticed it until you pointed it out ; now I'm thinking about heading back up there to see whether it looks any more like an explosion next time!

Well, in point of fact, it was a "bomb" since the Sun is basically one giant nuclear fusion reactor!

Re: Enough with the DP1M and DP2M already!

Finally, some images deserving of the SD1m! Bravo!

Usually, the images made with the SD1m (those whom I could see on internet because I don't get this camera) present a strong mauve dominance in the grey values (example: tree trunk), but there we find the beautiful colors which made the "success" of the SD9, SD10 and SD14.

Could you reveal us your trade secrets?

All images are great! The waterfall images are a oversaturated imho. Anyway a great usage of the 10mm lens!

Re: Enough with the DP1M and DP2M already!

Thanks people,

I'm starting to use SPP more and more, in particular recovering highlights and detail without the hassle of converting to TIFF. Really liking the colors in this regard too; it's making me more enthusiastic than usual with saturation and contrast

Here are a couple more shots from those days.

Re: Enough with the DP1M and DP2M already!

very nice photos, thanks for sharing. Re landscapes and greens, have you experimented with the landscape colormode? I find it very good for some situations.... in the places I've shot the DP2Merrill, I've usually kept the camera on auto wb. Then in processing, sometimes I try sunlight wb. But it's been too yellow sometimes, then I find that auto wb + landscape colormode is a good compromise; sometimes with colorwheel adjustment too (see manual re colorwheel). Note you can move the colorwheel by directional arrows on your keyboard also.

Best regards, Sandy
