Mezzo,
thanks for the comments.
Yes, coming from the SD15  I was using daylight for almost everything too. But in the last weeks I found myself using AWB with SPP more and more. I'm still going back to daylight or other WB quite often but AWB seems to be a good starting point for the quite limited topics I shoot.

Just an addition to custom modes on the DP2M:

The default custom modes are using Program mode to control aperture and shutter. If you want to control aperture by yourself you need to safe a custom mode from within Aperture (or Shutter) priority mode. The aperture value on display is safed as default in the custom mode. This means you can have your preferred aperture settings ready when you switch to custom mode (i.e. F2.8 for low light or F 5.6 for optimal IQ)

I was peacefully reading the thread when I felt on this picture and though EXACTLY the same !! Perfect scene to put a model in, even an academic nude.

Okay, the set's great, but you should have waited until the model arrived.

Hello Barefoot,

I advise you to go DP3m since you will not struggle with additional close-up elements. Just find a good light tripod and be prepared for a little learning curve and here you go !

Does anyone use grey cards, "lens cap" diffusers, Spyder Cube, or something similar to Color Checker?

Nancy,
I sometimes use a Spyder Cube for repetitive studio work. It's useless for landscape because it is to small IMHO.

Uwe: Why can't the Spyder cube be photographed up close and out of focus? Or don't you bother with white balance targets due to shooting under rapidly changing lighting situations? I am curious, because I am taking a face-to-face Lightroom class, and we are covering calibration.

I don't understand your question. You have obviously done enough photography to know wether you want a 45mm or 75mm lens and their associated quality's. a visit to the Sigma web sitr tells all. What is it you want?

Nancy,
the Spyder Cube is just to small to appear in an image of my DP2M as continuous areas when it's out of focus or to far away from the camera. This makes it almost impossible to use a pipette tool in PP or to shoot a CWB with the DP2M. The upper reflecting ball of the Cube gives a good highlight when in focus but it's useless if blurred or to small. I consider the Spyder Cube a tool to improve the exposure. For color it's just a very small greycard. If you are able to place the Cube near the object you want to photograph it will give good results concerning exposure.   Color balance might be off or not depending on the place you choose to pick the color.
Additionally landscapes are usually distant scenes with light differing between you point of view and the place you want to focus. That makes it hard for a grey card to give any hint on the color balance.
I ordered a CBL yesterday and will try to give a report until next weekend.

Barefoot photographer, the low telephoto perspective and the working distance of DP3M are favorable for near-macro shots. You should be aware that maximum magnification is 1:3, so if you want life-size, you are out of luck.

I've got a problem and would be grateful for any help in dealing with it.

My DP2M froze yesterday while upgrading to firmware 1.04. The battery was fresh, the firmware was on an sd card, the card in the camera and I'd navigated to the install firmware position of the menu. The first section of the upgrade had been successful, but while the second one was being processed, the screen went dark, all controls were inoperative, the lighted green circle around the on/off switch was steady and it stayed that way until the battery was exhausted!

I do have another fully charged battery but didn't want to perpetuate the symptoms or possibly damage the camera by starting something up before the upgrade had actually finished. Sigma is closed for the weekend and the weather is nice and sunny....

(OTOH, I've got lots of unprocessed files and SPP 5.5.1 to learn!)

Thanks in advance for any help and all the best to each of you,

Irenaeus
