  • Wonderful images. SFD is great, isn't it? I have been using a DP3M, but just picked up a DP0q to compliment it.
  • I may try something like this myself. Like you, I shot B&W film in the 90s, but converted to digital color a few years later. Now, I'm almost exclusively shooting color, occasionally dabbling in a...

  • I compared X3F to DNG and found the SPP-->TIFF route to be slightly better. Differences I noticed were mostly noise-related and aparent in close viewing, so depending on your tolerances, it might ...
  • Replied in dp3M vs sdQ
    Any comparisons like this can be really misleading if you don't provide the lens and exposure settings. Also, were these RAW mode? DNG on quattro?
  • Replied in Affinity HDR
    Honestly, I like the ambiance of the first image more. It conveys the mood, cool air, and quiet of the redwood forest floor.
  • Thanks for the shout-out :-D Per the OP's question, I can't say directly about APS-C, but in comparisons between my DP3M and A7rII, I estimate the Merrill sensor is resolving equal to about what ...
  • Yeah, it seems like quite a deal! How are the corners at 16mm? Bummer you cannot zoom underwater. Are you going to use strobes at all? I've been eyeing their new A6xxx "Salted" housings for the ...
  • Thanks for the info! I really like all the photos on your site (not just underwater too). I didn't realize that the DPQ Acquapazza housing had a sync cable port. I'm using a fiber cable triggered ...
  • It's tough to get everything in focus with over/under shots because of the water and dome optics (makes underwater images require closer focus). Stopping down to f22 and shooting at 16mm should ...
  • The RX100 models are a great option, offering very high quality at a reasonable cost and size. I put my kit together with a used RX100ii, housing, and ultrawide wet lens for about $1000. You can ...
  • Yep, the first and last shots are from Treasure Island. It's a great spot for photos.
  • Ah, thx. They're at the top if you sort by date uploaded. I keep forgetting to reset my DP3's internal clock, so the date on a lot of my DP3 shots shows they were taken in 2012... I'm going ...
  • Hey Rick, Great first shots! The colors and sharpness look wonderful. I currently shoot a RX100ii in an Acquapazza housing. I agree, it is very well made and lightweight. I have always been curious ...
  • Created discussion thread Some Night Shots with the DP3 Merrill
    Below are some shots from shooting the other night with the DP3 Merrill. Most of these are poorly compressed thanks to Flickr's algorithm, but still look decent. They're quite stunning on my 5K ...
  • Added 5 photos to their gallery

    Why not compare equivalent focal lengths? It seems odd to me to use the same physical focal length (35mm) and then crop the A7rIII result.
  • Replied in Not really
    I really only want to help inform people, and I'd encourage those with pixel-shift cameras to try it out, sure. The basic message is that any movement causes artifacts. Certainly one nice thing ...
  • Replied in Not really
    I don't think I was overstating anything--my qualifications for using pixel-shift were pretty clear and that cloning is an extra step for movement artifacts that occur. Maybe that's easy or not, ...
  • I agree, SFD is really more like an HDR+ mode. Auto bracketing and image averaging with one button. It does improve detail, and in my testing there are also huge gains in noise and dynamic range. ...
  • I for one would love to see recent smartphone comparison images on the studio tool. Smartphone cameras like on the Pixel 2 can be powerful photography tools, so it seems silly to ignore them as a...
