| p.14 #1 · Sigma DP2 Merrill: Have any of you tried it? |
If you are looking at the first 5 pictures am I right in this quick and certainly not "scientific" interpretation:
The Merrill could do it a bit better ?
Whichever camera was in the hands of a more skilled photographer would do a lot better.
......This we all know
The Merrill would probably be ahead on extra-fine detail, so long as lighting allowed for ISO <= ~400.
........This was what I was after, thank you.
The Merrill would lose badly in low light / high ISO shots, along with cases where fast operation / autofocus / etc. is needed to capture spur-of-the-moment action. After the first few dozen shots, the Merill's battery will be dead and it will certainly not be doing better.
....Yes we will have to live with this
I'd say these two cameras each have their own separate, largely non-overlapping strengths and weaknesses, so "better" will very much depend on the specifics of the situation.
.....I know therefore I wrote as I did, but we have seen some very fine portraits here - better than average, and also street photos better than average, and in my opinion better than the photos from the link from the other camera
um, i don't think anyone really expects the rx100 to outperform the dp2m at low iso. the rx100 is just a smaller, cheaper, more versatile camera. the dp2m is obviously a better imager (just on specs alone) in optimal shooting conditions. the rx100 can be used more easily in a lot more situations while still providing very good image quality. i don't really view them as competing cameras at all. completely different markets.
