| p.66 #9 · Sigma DP2 Merrill: Have any of you tried it? |
Out of curiosity, I am trying to analyze the images and find what is causing the look.
Henrik, your images on the previous page have some of the "HDR processing" look, with enhanced local contrast. The crop of the white branches against the blue sky brings the evidence, there has been local contrast enhancement with radius about 10-15 pixels, and strength somewhere around 10-20 %. This is consistent with what I found in Tariq's comparison with the D800.
The per pixel crispness I can also emulate from a higher MP bayer sensor. If i resample to twice the linear resolution of the Foveon using bicubic, the sharpen a little, and downsample to the exact Foveon resolution using Nearest Neighbor, I get a very similar per pixel look.
Now if I only knew how to replicate the Foveon colors, I have the complete recipe for a "Merrilizer" filter i photoshop
