Stunning, Juan.  I wonder if anyone will see banding in the sky. Smiley

Hello,

DP2 Merrill, 800 ISO and 500 ISO (car), B&W JPEG out of the camera, just some curve adjustments. This is a backstage of a fashion Show I covered and the DP2M with Auto ISO in B&W JPEG do very good job, in my world Smiley

Hmm... I tnink the car image works very well, and the soft tonality suits the subject, but the headshot doesn't (at least on my calibration of my monitor). It bears the same 'flatness' of a pulled wet print that seems also to accompany several of the shots posted on LuLa to display the glories and virtuosity of the mono Leica M.

IMO, at least, and I'm regularly mistaken.

You are perfectly spot on and you are not mistaken. Since I have the DP2 is try to find settings who give me exactly what output in raw the Leica MM. This is not that easy but I think I'm pretty close as you mention it Smiley

When I was SIGMA evangelist, back in the day ( Grin), I wanted to make a special post and comparison between the MM and the DP2m, because for me, the ultimate B&W machine is the DP2m.

Today I just show my experiments (only the car is a recent shoot) and stopped playing with my "MM settings".

I've mislaid my instruction manual - is the hot shoe safe to use with a non dedicated flash? (Sigma 530 Super in this case). I just wanted to use a flash to illuminate some frosted trees at night and see there is no co-axial socket. I suppose I could set a long exposure using manual mode and paint with open flash which would probably be better anyway - pity it's limited to 30secs as no B setting.

Of course,

Take a photo with your Merrill, go in SPP, make your adjustments as you like (banding, contrast, shadows, fill light). If you shoot well, you will not need to tweak that much. Then, turn your X3f in monochrome mode inside SPP. Export as Tiff 16 bits. If you have photoshop just play with the level/contrasts : you will find it pretty quick. If no photoshop, just download Paint.Net who is free and play with levels, you will find it pretty quick too Smiley

Agreed.  I've run several files that didn't show the dreaded magenta/green bias and this new update introduces the problem that SPP controlled.  Try the demo before buying it as this is not the solution we've been waiting for.

I'm having trouble getting the left-right-up-down arrow's to work with the color wheel. I'm on a Mac but can't get them to work with the wheel. Anyone care to share the secret.....Thanks, Max

Hello Max,

Do you mean using the both key in the same time, to go in diagonal or just the keys alone ?

@ Larkis >> damn beautiful shoots.

Hello Huylss, Well I was just trying to use them one at a time. Up,left. etc. Nothing happens, except the screen blinks. Tried holding command key and arrow, etc, with no luck. I should just click on the color wheel center and the arrows should work.....correct?
