Interesting and very practical outfit for the youngling


Your samples look much better here than on dpreview. Do you have to upload on dpreview server and they cut the quality? Never posted there pictures.

Hi rattymouse, Your shots have a really nice, natural color. What setting are you using ? natural mode ?

any other PP ? I found that my DP2m has some very different color interpretation.


Thanks for the comments. I have bounced back and forth between neutral and standard, mostly using standard in this set. No real other PP to speak of, perhaps a bit of clarity added in Lightroom. No sharpening at all.

Thanks. I always shoot neutral color so far but sometimes it comes out too flat. I will experiment with standard mode next time. Feveon sensor does have a very distinctive color, a very smooth, filmmic feel.

rattymouse,
what iso did you use for the top photo on this page that looks like an indoor shot? I was thinking that something like this would not be possible.

That's an ISO200 shot. While the statue is indoors, it is well exposed to the outside light as the doors right in front of the statue are all open. If I remember right, I took this shot while actually standing outside.

it's common in places below sea level/with a high water table (e.g. new orleans).

Interesting! I didn't know that. This was the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery Santiago de Cuba. Did not seem below sea level but the city is situated in a bay surrounded by mountains. And there are the hurricanes, of course.

I took my 5D3 with 21 mm Distagon and 24-105 L along with my DP2M to a local viewpoint, the Tour de Brison, here in the Ardeche yesterday to photograph recent snowfall on the Tanargue massif. I mounted the cameras on my RRS tripod and BH55 head and proceeded to record the scene. having some time I was able to try various apertures and some bracketing for later tonemapping as the DR was way high. I am currently evaluating the utility of my DSLR set up in view of the increasingly excellent results that I can obtain from much more portable options and I was interested to review the resultant images. Main conclusion? The 24-105 ( even though I feel it is a 'good' copy) just cannot live in the company of the Distagon or the Sigma. Softness, CA and muddy colours are what I see at all focal lengths in comparison to these two paragons. I'm no further forward in my decision regarding my DSLR ownership but I dont see myself using the 24-105 again for, well, much, maybe I'll give it to my kids.... What I did see is that the DP2M stands up very well against the 5D3/21mm Distagon in terms of edge to edge sharpness and lack of CA at all apertures. And I reckon the DP2M weighs less than the Distagon on it's own! I did see some green /magenta funkiness however, but nothing I can't live with.

Very interesting. I have never been to a place like that. Sure makes for a cluttered looking cemetery. I wonder if they have theft "problems".
