  • The FS-converted DP1 and DP1x, that I once had, produced the best FS colors, and were just a lot of fun to use. Most of the SOOC jpeg's looked great, without any editing. Man-made blue or red ...
  • I think most would agree that any personal image, will remind you of a time and place. Cheers, Gary
  • Yes, the dust protector/IR-UV-block filter was removed on my sdQ, and a 720nm IR filter was placed on-lens. The IR spectrum is well within the range of digital sensors. Conversions are common ...
  • Created discussion thread IR, full spectrum & UV on the sdQ
    Lately, I've been experimenting with bw infrared, full spectrum and UV on the sdQ. The first two are of the same patch of foliage; one in bw IR (Monochrome mode, 720nm filter), the other FS ...
  • Really interesting! ...had to look that one up !
  • The greatest surrealist painter ever, drove a Datsun !! That's hilarious. Thanks for posting. -Gary
  • Replied in Ford GT
    Nice vintage processing on the Olds. The M8 / Jupiter8 sounds like interesting combo! The r-w-b car in the original post is an AMC AMX.
  • Replied in Ford GT
    I take it that you're referring to the r-w-b  version ? This one was taken with the full spectrum DP1x.  Actual paint color was blue. There are a lot of car events in my area, and find it a great ...
  • Replied in Ford GT
    Yikes! I forgot to include the link to my gallery. and a couple others...
  • Replied in Ford GT
    Ford GT at a weekly cruise night car show, shot with a full spectrum converted DP1x. All the red cars shift to a caramel orange, and blue cars turn purple. -Gary
  • ...on a cloudy day. -Gary sd Quattro, Monochrome mode, 720nm filter
  • Blacks and contrast are a tricky thing in bw processing. For bw IR, I prefer darker, but not absolute black in the sky, while retaining the snow white qualities of the trees and foliage. For me ...
  • I gave color/AWB/Ntrl a try today, but I don't I don't see any appreciable difference between a color processed to bw or Monochrome mode. I also took some shots with the Monochrome mode 'Filtering ...
  • The one thing that I hadn't tried, was to adjust the sliders in the sdQ 'Monochrome' menu, as mentioned in the Tim Shoebridge article. As soon as I made the adjustments, the whites were brighter, ...
  • Thanks Laurence...I think I've figured it out to some degree... -Gary
  • Thanks Mike. My Sigma 30mm 1.4 DC HSM (non-art) seems fine with the 720nm, but have noticed some hot spot issues @ f8. Have you come across any Sigma SA mount lenses, that are somewhat UV/IR ...
  • Thanks for your results, Ted. I had thought that it may be a result of shooting in 'monochrome' mode, but I don't think that that really matters. Since the foveon sensor is so well defined (in 3 ...
  • Hi Rick, I haven't shot in color with 720> filters, because honestly I was hoping to avoid color to bw processing in SPP.  Monochrome mode seemed like a most direct way to process, but it's a odd ...
  • Created discussion thread bw IR issues with sdQ
    So far, I'm happy with the infrared output of the sdQ, when using a standard 720nm IR filter, and decided to try a 850nm filter for a more dramatic IR effect. With the 850 in place, I was quite ...
  • Hi Mike, Nice bokeh in your original sdQ H shot, and authentic looking paint effect from DAP. My current favorite paint and effects software is Topaz Studio. The top one is a sdQ shot, with a ...
