Hiya, The DP has arrived! Habemus DP. Gosh, it had only 340 clicks on it. And it even smells like brand new. This has been a very nice buy. A few questions still. I am still waiting in the other thread for advice on a grip or cover, but in this case I always advise people to buy a decent protection filter (not UV). But the lens hood for the DP3M is quite big, so maybe you don't need a protection filter. And they are quite expensive, the good ones at least. Besides the fact that I cannot find...
Hiya people, As you by now know, the new DP3M is en route to the Netherlands. I will have to buy an SD card and will be on the lookout for a nice leather-ish cover. I think I will advise the new owner a SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB card. Can I assume that this one works fine in the DP3M? I had one in my SDX and they are very fast on my USB 3 card reader. And while we are at it, I've seen these marvellous leather cases for the DP. But I can't find that much on Amazon or eBay. This DP is brand new...
Hiya people, I am asking for someone dear to me. She needs a really sharp little camera (since I quitted and sold my gear) for making pictures of her work. So with using a tripod and point and shoot. Please no advice for other cameras. I have been through all of that with her. She needs a nice DP3M (not a Q) and so I am looking for one. The Netherlands, Germany or Belgium would be nice but if it is a good one, overseas shipping is acceptable... Her budget is around 400 euro. Is there anyone...
Hi everyone, First question from a long time reader. I recently acquired a dp3 and saw that the image once inside the SPP editor looks different than the jpg preview shown in the SPP manager/selector. sooc jpg / extracted from x3f export from x3f in SPP editor Imho, the jpg has better mids, no blowouts and more detail than the x3f,, which I can't get back in the high res file. Is it that the smaller dynamic range from the jpg has saved me from my poor metering? Why do they look so...
Hi everyone, I just bought a used dp3 merrill, I already have the dp2 merrill. I compared the shutter sounds. The dp2 merrill sounds very clean, like two little clicks. It sounds similar at all apertures. The dp3 merrill sounds similar only at f2.8; at smaller apertures it sounds increasingly less "clicky" and maybe a little less clean. Anyone who owns both cameras can confirm this? I just need some reassurance that the shutter is ok... :-) Thank you guys! CheersDaniel
I am trying to update the firmware and have the file DP3QV202.BIN in the root directory of the SD card as required, however the camera is saying "No Firmware update file on memory card." I have re-formatted the card and re-downloaded the firmware file, still same issue. Has anyone had this issue before? Any suggestions to resolve this? Thanks.
Hi everyone, I just bought a Fuji X-E3, which should arrive at my store in a few days time, but I didn’t purchase any lens yet. I’m currently using a Sigma DP1M, a Sigma DP3M and some Pentax gear. I was considering getting a Voigtländer 21mm f/4 and a M to X mount adapter for the following reasons (no particular order) > Coming from Sigma, I’d rather stay on the sharper side of things (dismissing cheap lenses) > I’d prefer a real manual focus lens (as opposed to a focus by wire) > I really...
