  • This was my reaction upon receiving my DP1x. Yeah, it is slow. But, far, far from unusable as most of the review said. And the photos that came out of the thing - wow! A DP2m is in my future at ...
  • Thanks, Ted. The SD9 surprised me. Mechanically, camera is extremely robust. I was expecting something cheaper (more dpx quality, still not bad). The brown tones are weird. I'll play around with ...
  • I second this. More resolution for landscapes is always a good thing. And the shallower DoF for portraits. Any one of these reasons is sufficient. But in actuality, I'll wait until people dump ...
  • Replied in Five Monarchs
    Very nicely done! The focus is great.
  • It isn't quite fair to call a sdQ "Goliath," but on comparison to the SD9, it works. Just for the fun of it, I am comparing images from the sdQ with the 30/1.4 Art against a newly-acquired SD9. ...
  • Tracking difficulty becomes exponentially harder the longer the exposure. Running at ISO 100 would be tough. And, I'm not sure how well the sdQ does with long exposures in general. Probably a ...
  • Merrill would be fantastic. But, unless they have made an engineering breakthrough, it seems clear the Merrill is not scale-able. My money would be on Quattro.
  • Replied in SD14 or SD15
    Woah. It has been a long time since I have seen PhotoAcute mentioned. It was a great piece of software.
  • I order something similar. We'll see how it works. The spots may be oil or something. They did not budge, even after blowing. As if someone shot canned air into it.
  • Well, it looks like some wetwork is required. Blowing the dust seemed to make it worse.
  • LOL. I don't think it is lack of confidence. Probably too much reading and too many opinions. My Pentax K-7 ended up with dust on it, and I had a bear of a time getting it out. And back in the day ...
  • Created question thread Cleaning sdQ Sensor?
    What is recommended to clean the sdQ sensor? I have eight or so annoying specs on my sensor. And yeah, I'm sure they are on the sensor. I've cleaned both sides of my lenses, and both sides of the ...
  • Hmm. Personally, I'm not too interested unless it has a Foveon sensor. A Leica rangefinder with a Sigma sensor and Panasonic guts? Now that would be a beautiful thing, but I surely could never ...
  • I suggest going with the sdQ instead of the sdQH. The resolution increase is not huge. That money is better spent in quality glass. You are more likely to see issues with the glass at the print ...
  • Sounds great! You have a lot of experimenting to do. I don't think you will be able to use the Pentax K mount unless you remove the aperture lever. All my Pentax K mount lenses will not fit ...
  • Love the last blue-hour shot.
  • As an alternate, you may consider the 14-24 f/2.8. I find 14mm much easier to frame than 12mm. I find 12mm only useful for extreme cases where a panorama would probably yield better results. And, I ...
  • All, If you find any of this interesting, I highly recommend the book Command and Control . It is a fairly big book, but a fast read. It describes a catastrophic failure of one of these silos in ...
  • Whoa. I am interested in this Gate Bois reconvolution method that you mention. Where can I find details? Is there a thread here?
  • Replied in Agreed
    I have found that it works amazingly well, too. I tested it with landscapes, and it did a very good job. Interestingly, it blew up high detail areas exceptionally well, and also removed the noise ...
