For a moment, I was confused... had I clicked on Instagram or what? Wink

Great stuff!

I got myself a DP3M lately and took it on a trip to Bordeaux. I found it more difficult to use than the DP2M, it seems to be a very different camera actually, not in operation but the shooting experience is something new. But with some practice, I'm sure I'll get excellent results eventually. Here are some of my first shots:

How usable is this camera for fashion work? I realise it will never be the ideal tool but I'm fed up with having problems with security even in out of the way places in London despite the fact the work in non-commerical. They take one look at a dslr, tell you it cannot be non-commerical and kick you off.

My prime concerns are stability with no viewfinder, shooting speed and focusing. Colour accuracy isn't critical since it will not be used for jobs.

God I love my DP3M. I also have a few shots taken at 1250 iso, really, noise isn't an issue.

I really cannot understand why Sigma is not building in a viewfinder for obvious pro or passionate users.

This is not a mom-pop camera.

One more here for an eye level viewfinder.

Just can't deal with holding the camera out to shoot. Also, in dimly lit venues the bright screen screws up the night vision big time... as well as spotlighting me in the shadows. Really ruins shooting in jazz clubs.

Hi Themsquaredgroup,

great images thanks for posting. I own a DP2m, would like to ask what software you use apart from Sigma Photo Pro for post processing.

No major post processing, just crop and exposure adjustment using SPP.

Three-shot stack in Helicon Focus  (by the way, I've had better results with re-focus and stack, rather than using my focus rail - go figure).

This is an incredibly appealing image. I’d not heard of focus stacking until I read your and Barbara’s comments, but interestingly yesterday I was wondering if combining multiple shots with different planes of focus might work. After seeing your photo, I looked up the technique - yet another incentive to buy the DP3M to go with my 2M....

Barbara, Bill . . .

Thanks for the kind comments.  I bought the DP3 for just such work, and I'm making progress getting it dialed in.

/thread digression

Bill, yes... focus stacking is a pretty powerful concept for macro work, but as seen here has application for extending the DOF while keeping the aperture of the lens at its sharpest spot in more normal work.  Many landscape photographers also do stacks to get near ground / background extended DOF.

I've found Helicon Focus to work best for me, though Photoshop has this utility as well, and there are other software products out there for this.
There is even a "freeware" available that you might want to check out: http://zerenesystems.com/cms/stacker/softwaredownloads

Here is another example that I've posted before (taken w/ a900) that illustrates what can be done with landscape work.  This image was shot at 200 mm on a FF camera.  Five shots were made, each focused on one of the trees moving front to back.  Stacking made possible a sense of DOF that would not be possible at this focal length otherwise:



Sequoias - Mariposa Grove - Yosemite

end digression /

Best regards,
Rand
