Whatever crosses my DPMs’ path

After my seemingly everlasting macro-phase, everything is back to normal again. I take photos of anything that crosses my DP2M’s or DP3M’s path. At times cats, at times cars, and at other times dainties straight from the grill. 🙂 By the way, this time I left the meat slightly longer in the pot when it ...

Review: Sigma DP3 Merrill

I have been using the Sigma DP3 Merrill for a month now, enough time to conceive an opinion on the camera. Admittedly, I didn’t use it as an all-purpose camera as I did with the DP2M (1, 2), but primarily for macro shots, which is why I cannot tell exactly how well it does as ...

Refreshment after the macro-session

In Serbia, there is currently an implacable wave of heat, the forecast for Belgrade announces 38 degrees for today. What else can be done from a photographic point of view than capturing all the relentless insects that seem to enjoy the weather so much? You need to be careful, however, not to get a too ...

Insects and Green Stuff with the DP3M

A few days ago, I got the request to upload some of the pictures I took with the Sigma DP3M in original size. As I recently only just photographed bugs and flowers, I don’t have any photos readily available to demonstrate the camera’s sharpness and the lens (middle and edge sharpness…) performance. As soon as ...

DP3 Merrill: I had to strike again! :-)

Waiting for the cash-back bank transfer, I am holding the DP3M in my hands and cheerfully taking photos. Only the weather, which currently goes haywire, spoils the party. After the hot spell of past weeks, it’s raining cats and dogs at the moment. This is why I could only take some sample pictures inside my ...

Ragtag

The nice thing about compact cameras is the easy way of taking them anywhere you want. If I only had the SD1, I would take far less pictures. I only take the “big” one with me when I am really planning on taking some pictures. With the DP2M that’s different, it practically accompanies me wherever ...

Pictures, once again

After almost an entire week, it is high time for me to post a few new pictures. Work, nice weather and some minor technical issues kept me from uploading new content. As is often the case with me, either cute four-legged friends or delicious dainties cross my camera’s way. I hope you enjoy these little ...

Finally spring

Yesterday, spring has finally arrived! Indeed, it was almost three weeks behind schedule, but as the saying goes, better late than never 😉 . Just in time before I forget how to handle the DP2m. After lunch, I speedily headed to the park, where I spent the rest of the afternoon. Simply marvelous! I hope ...

Final snapshots before the rain

Before it started raining cats and dogs, I could make use of my lunch breaks to take some pictures. According to the weather forecast, we will be facing heavy rains and floods to a biblical extent in the next one and a half weeks. In a city that is situated on two rivers, one immediately ...

When the sun smiles Aperture 8…

…or not 🙂 If the light is good, I am fine with any aperture. Even f2.8., the widest aperture of the DP2 Merrill. And why not, if the lens is already breathtakingly sharp and free of any optical flaws even at wide open aperture? Aperture 8 should only be used if more depth of field ...
