  • Yes, I think this is pretty good for the camera, . But I think the issue here might be... The lens itself. If you want a really sharp image you need to use the DP2, as I understand the issue. The ...
  • Thanks for posting these: I like the images posted precisely because they do not show any rolling shutter "issue." They are simply well done images.
  • Well, yes, and looking better to me, too. The issue for me is that I typically do not take pictures of moving objects. I tend to take pictures of things at rest, with the exception of oceanic waves...
  • It looks like another fp/fpL non-issue to me: Nothing to see at all. What can it mean? That ALL the "objections" to the camera are utterly invalid?  That someone or some group has presented some ...
  • As a Sigma camera user, I like the detail provided in the Sigma camera images. But the problem is that the proper level of "detail" complements (in a good way) the image concerned. It is ...
  • Elisam Thanks for expressing your point of view so well. It gets to the point of mysterious, for me, when everyone wants the cheapest possible all -around camera ever in the world, one that does ...
  • Replied in CC Wanted
    I like it. I'm not so unhappy with the tourists, but surely you could ask the to dress better in your pictures? Less of the intense blue shirts, and more earth tones? Please?
  • Since the fp was introduced I have struggled Intellectually, (which doesn't take much...) to locate and evaluate the reality and practical "issues" raised in some of the reviews. Sure, we get ...
  • Yes, one would be hesitant if one were to read AND believe all the "negative" fp/fpL posts. The common and I think erroneous assumption seems to be that all the other choices/options are excellent ...
  • Snip I get the odd feeling that maybe it isn't such a difficult path, but that the people who follow it are already kind of difficult? As much as I agree with you on the larger aspect of improving ...
  • Yes, real life images, from our eyes, are not like photos of the scene. Maybe for some people they are? I have no idea about that. But like images by Magritte, the image is NOT the thing itself. ...
  • Yes, and I think we all need to be somewhat aware of how our opinion on things is generally the subject of efforts by others to influence how we think and feel about...well, just about everything. ...
  • Yes Yes. Yes. Seriously, Yes, to all the above. You can fight with this, to some extent, but why? I agree that the Foveon is more "real" than Bayer. But do people take pictures to get "more ...
  • Replied in CC this please
    But, I like it. I'm okay with it from start to finish. Could you have done it differently? Yes, clearly. But it's good, just the way it is. Is it true to reality? Well: No, but "reality" is ...
  • I generally shoot at ISO 100, but I know that many (possibly) good images are not possible without a tripod at such an ISO. Gate Bois regularly shoots at higher ISO and does really well. He has ...
  • The only "issue" I can see is the dreaded realty, in terms of images, that you can measure the colors and such and see how close to reality you and your image are. The Foveon colors could be ...
  • My 19 YO daughter, an advertising major, has her (formerly my) Contax G2 sitting on the table where I am typing this. She likes film images. But she would never let go of her Apple 10 phone. The ...
  • I was a relatively happy guy with my SD10 until I saw the results from the sdQ. The Merrill just took the "SD" look to the Max. I didn't really like that as a result. If you really like the SD15 ...
  • The sd Q cameras have color issues? No, they do not, or not in any significant way. (After all, all cameras have some kind of imperfection...) What they are is a great change of use in terms of ...
  • "Better" is fine with me. "Greater clarity" as well. Part of what you are commenting on might be the effects of post-processing. We would hope that the images were processed in a way that would ...
