p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · DP1 Merrill, Where's the love?


There's a thread for the DP2M and now the DP3M, but no one talks about the DP1M. Is there no fan of the wide angle version of the Merrill?

I thought that was a dp#m thread?


I thought all the foveons had a thread as well.

Whenever I talk of the DP1M, I just throw it in the DP2M thread since a separate thread was never started. I have both - DP1M & DP2M - but the DP1M is the one I use the most due to the wider lens.

Couldn't we rename the DP2M thread to DPxM? That would make a whole lot of sense.

Rattymouse: I have the DP1M and like it a lot for what it is, there is definitely some love.

Making it a DP_X_Merrill thread would be nice.

+1 to making the DP2M thread a generic DP Merrill thread... it seems we're already using it like that anyway.

Let's hope it happens. The Merrill crowd is far too fragmented.

Funny you should bring up my DP1 Merrill post as being in the wrong thread (DP2M). I had thought people had started posting more to the DP2M thread than just the DP2M.

Here's a little love thrown the DP1 Merrill's way..

Thanks rattymouse, I have some 5D II/Zeiss shots taken the same day (but wider..15mm and 21mm). Processed the DP1M shot first though after seeing it briefly in SPP. The DP1M is growing on me...picking it up after the DP2M put it at a disadvantage. The DP2M lens is just phenomenal and I just have to forget about it when using the DP1M. (Not that the DP1M lens is bad..)

I actually posted to the DP2M thread as I remembered the comments in this thread....although I had thought they were made in the DP2M thread. C'est la vie.

Wow...just struck me how much there really is a lack of love for the DP1M. There are 86 pages for the DP2M.....1 page for the DP1M.

If you don't mind me asking, What was your workflow on the image (settings in SPP and additional prossessing in LR)? The color turned out very nice in this image. I tend to go through a lot of trial and error to get the color to feel right. Thanks.

Edwin,
My workflow was a little odd. These were shot with the latest DP1M firmware and processed through SPP. I didn't do too much in SPP, here were the settings:

Exposure = -0.6
Contrast = 0
Shadow = 0
Highlight = 0
Saturation = 0
Sharpness = -2.0
X3 Fill Light = 0.3

Color Mode
Vivid

Color Adjustment
11M+17Y

Turned on the default CA removal

I recently started using PhotoNinja (coming from DxO) for my Canon files, and actually used it by loading the tiff produced through SPP to do my finishing. Tweaked the white balance more, adjusted the contrast a little, turned on the noise removal (the dark parts of the sky showed a little blotchiness which it pretty much removed.) I then sharpened it through PhotoNinja as well (actually had to dial it back from its default as it was too strong.0

So that probably sounded somewhat painful, but given that I'm getting used to PhotoNinja, it seemed pretty natural. I have the toughest time getting the color balance right in SPP, but I have gotten better at it.

Thanks Tim.

I typically do BW, but trying to come up with a workflow for color which I admittedly struggle with.

I just missed the more intense rainbow as the sun fell behind a storm to my back. I intend to ultimately finish this image in BW, but thought the color was interesting as well.
