I just bought a dp3m off ebay from Japan. Hopefully it won't take to long to ship. Here's a pano of my town from a rented dp3m this fall. It's a huge file and web size doesn't do it justice.

Just a tip here: there's no point in buying a superfast SD card, the processing is so long that the camera can't write files quickly enough. A 45 MB/s card is plenty. And writing is as fast as a 90 MB/s card, which cots twice as much.

I did wonder but then i can always use it in my other cameras, ended up with a relatively cheap 32gb toshiba 30mb class 10 for less than 20
Had a further play today and have the AF/MF thing all sorted now and use the center button for magnified view not a half shutter press and instinctively switch between AF/MF using the focus button.

Any thoughts on using the Dp3m handheld?  Is there a lot of cammera shake even in good light or is using a tripod necessary?  Currently debating between the 2/3m.

I've never used a tripod personally... I've had a few shots with camera shake though, but that's because I was too stubborn to shoot at higher ISO than 100. A little bit of noise is better than camera shake.

Hi people,

DP3m is now around 300, and it's really tempting.

any of you have experience with fuji S3 or S5 from years ago ? the skin tone is amazing on those machines.

i bought an XE1 some time ago and i quite like it, but the skin tone just wasnt as good as the S3/5. how does DP3M compared ?  Grin thanks

Tripods are helpful, but if light is good, you may be able to get along without one. The good part about the DP#Ms is that you don't need much of a tripod to support 8 ounces of camera.

Hello,

I would like to know if anyone has any experience with Watson IA-BH125C / DB-65 / BP-41 / D-Li106 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (3.7V, 1000mAh)
Link to B&H
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/835961-REG/watson_b_3903_ia_bh125c_battery_pack_f_samsung.html replacements for the Merrill's, one review says its the same as the manufacturers but more then half the price.

Thank you

"UPDATE"

I am happy to report that I did buy the Watson Battery, it works perfectly fine it lasts and charges as the OEM.

Hello,

Can anyone suggests a filter system that works with the DP3, mainly used for landscape.

It can get confusing with so much options, I need a polarize and ND filter.

Thank you all

I just use a standard 52mm CPL for casual off-tripod use. You can use standard square/rectangular filter holders with a 52mm adapter.

This camera must come from a parallel universe. The machinery is crazy, software unbelievably horrible and unique, but images can be out of this world.

The SPP 6 on a PC Win7 works very good with the DPM3 at least I use it and I haven't encountered any problem so far.
