The Great War Boys (a fair few sdQ images).
14

I was over at Dunfermline yesterday with the kids for a festival they where having and my friends who do WW1 reenactments where there putting on a show.
These are some snapshots from the sdQ, I did shot in raw but for quickness I just pulled out the JPG files and did a quick edit on them (nothing major, just pushed shadows a but in some for example.)
There are a mixture of shots mostly (possibly all I posted) with the 50-100 f1.8 ART so hopefully it will give people a good idea of what the sdQ is like shooting people in natural light

And as a bonus, my wife

Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art

Very nice job.
The framing, depth of field, are very well managed.
The rendering is very beautiful.

Thank you, some are slightly cropped but mostly I was doing my best to frame them without normal people or bouncy castles when I could to try keep them outside of our timezone but ofc I couldn't do that during the event/show they did :).

Splendid set, Meuh. Clearly, you have a life.

Not sure about the lady with an "ootside, Jimmy" look on her face . . .

Great set, i got the fill that it was taken with a film camera not digital (Positively) 
Is the combo of sdq+50-100 haevy ? and what asa were you using?

thanks for sharing

Reminds me of Hogan's Heroes! "Sgt. Schultz" is priceless! Do you suppose processing the RAW would produce better sharpness/detail? Wonderful color tones here but I find them a little soft and lacking the detail I would hope for from a Foveon.

The 50-100 f1 8 is like using a 70-200 f2.8 in size and weight to give you a reference point.

I used iso100 as I was outdoors for most of the day and I think they are all iso 100, exif data should be intact.

Glad you like the images.

The German with the moustache, the guy leaning against the tree and the last two pictures are really nice! The moment is well captured. The colours are fantastic and I am beginning to enjoy the sight of this camera!

cant wait.

but tell me, please, what sort of editing did you do?

I shot raw but extracted the raw files amd did very little to them except possibly crop a little and many push the shadows a little.

The one of my wife I did edit a bit more though.

"Bubbles" on machinegun look promising. I wonder how 50-100 F1.8 fares dew drops, rain droplets on foilage hmmmm will it render Trioplan like bubble bokeh.

Not sure if this helps any :), note I did use some cheap plastic ND gel over my lens here to cut down the ambient light which gave me that rainbow flair.

Would you test something. Indoor plants, foliage, spray lots of water on them, thereafter Art at 100 F1.8/2.8 to recreate Trioplan 100/2.8 like "bubble" bokeh.

Sure I can try that tomorrow, If  you really want crazy from the lens though then 100mm f1.8 on the a7II is pretty sweet using the full sensor although it does cat's eye.
