On a photo in the Nikon D7200 Real-world Samples sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Used Digital ROC (br=42, wc=0) and got a fairly nice result. ROC can sometimes save loads of time. In Hue-and-Saturation, moved yellow towards red a little (-7).

Couldn't pull anything extra out of the shadows.

The shot could've used an additional EV or two (1/30 or 1/5 sec).

VENTURE-STAR: Pardon my obvious stupidity, but where's the actual preview for this camera? There are a series of images that don't even show the back of this camera - is that the preview? Wouldn't a bit of technical spec and comment have been useful?

Leicas are lovely things and nice toys for lottery winners who have an interest in photography, but what's the point of a camera body that only does monochrome even if the images are fractionally cleaner? What's the advantage over making whatever you want monochrome on your PC? I'm afraid the point of this camera body seems to be going right over my head. It must be aimed at an extraordinarily small specialized market! I certainly don't know anyone who would seriously consider buying it.

And when Frankenstein speaks, people should listen, I always say.

I understand the appeal of this camera. And I understand the appeal of rare liver.

That's a complex tripartite question that's making my brain go into spasms. Let's see--

Leica -- for plutocrats
B&W -- for all humanity
plutocrats -- get no props from me

I'm bloated (20 stone) but definitely not a plutocrat. It seems I'm a ptochocrat. And a gruesome pedant.

I gotta get out more.

Astrotripper: Never even touched a Leica, never really shot 35mm film, and never used an actual rangefinder camera.

Still, I think the Monochrome is one of the most interesting things that happened in photo gear in last couple of years. This thing here is really one of the kind. I respect Leica for getting such a camera out into the market.

And if I had the chance, I'd love to try this thing out. If I were a fat cat that rents an apartment in Trump Tower just for his cats, I'd buy this immediately, together with some Hassies for my cats.

I used a Leica IIIg and preferred it to the Nikon F because it was quiet. But that's all gone now.

My cat doesn't eat or play with cameras, poor thing.

At this price, I'll rush out and buy a Canon full-framer for it.

Be careful, you're rocking the boat with your mordant reasonableness.

Need subjects in center so as to judge center sharpness.

Looks very nice at f/8.

Crowd scenes like this are great for judging image quality.

Totally agree with Maximo.

I was able to hammer this into good shape with "PS."

It takes time, though.

My life is going down the drain correcting images.

I think I'll be bracketing the crap out of my shoots. Might save me a heap of time.

LaMesa: The colors look better, more natural than on any JPGs I've seen from Panasonic before. There seems to be a large dynamic range, and skin tones are really good.

Herbert

Forgive me, LaMesa.

With respect, this is hard to believe.

DPR, please adjudicate.

Ulfric M Douglas: I'm seeing "grey" results overall. This could be due to the day's light.
Did DPR try to vary the Jpeg choices and see what came out?

DPR, please address.

Pandimonium: Looks very similar to this amazing gallery: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/panasonic-g7/panasonic-g7GALLERY.HTM

Images in this gallery (imaging Resource)are much better than DPR's. Only 2 or 3 are flat.

DPR, please comment on the photos in your samples.

Spkeasy: I would buy (80%) the LX100 (or something like it) if it had at least a 16MP sensor. I need the occasional big enlargement and pixelation becomes an issue at the 12MP level.
Add zoom to about 10x to that and I think I would be 100% likely to buy, especially if they shrunk the width a little so it would fit a pocket more easily.
The slap-on little flash (or bigger option) on my EM5 works out fine since I rarely need flash with the low-light options I have with high speed sensor (they all seem to be getting these today) and great stabilization allowing me to use natural light for almost everything.

it's around 16"x24". This is a good place to get that sort of info (along with other great articles) https://photographylife.com/how-to-enlarge-photographs-for-printing

Very pertinent piece.

Convinced me to acquire an upscaling app, like BenVista PhotoZoom.
