    Thanks Polly. Certainly worth considering.

    Sigma double resolution in Sigma Photo Pro

    Yes the results are certainly impressive. i did some crops at double resolution to see how it compared with my RX100 top end digital zoom (which i really must find out what zoom multiple it is. Certainly cropping to give an equivalent 150mm focal length gives impressive results. Who needs...

    Sigma the DP viewfinder for DP2M

    Has anyone got any experience of using a viewfinder on the DP2M? Was also considering an LCD screen loupe. It's really for use in bright light conditions

    Sigma double resolution in Sigma Photo Pro

    Never noticed it before but I am able to 'double' the resolution when i save as a TIFF (prob same for JPEG too). so my pixel count goes to 9000 x 6000 roughly. Darned big files too!! 136mb. Now the question is, is it pure interpolation / extrapolation or is this the special sensor thats...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    I viewed the pics above on a large iMac screen. There may be bias creeping in here but the dp shots at least equal if not better. They seem to have greater definition. Was out last weekend taking shots of a local manor house and old parish church. The detail captured is amazing and still...

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    Andrew. the test was a quick test in between the constant rain showers we seem to having here. the focus locked on, so I know there wasn't an issue. trust me, the RAW on my computer looked a lot sharper, but certainly could have done with some more in LR4. When I have the time I will take a...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    Xuereb, if I could ebay you our rain, you could have it for free. It is positively biblical here in the West Country. bought the DP2M two days ago, and I completely agree with everything you say and will take your advice. A simple comparison I did just blew my mind.

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    Yep, the DP2M has its shortcomings. I bought it purely for landscape work. My Sony RX100 is my pocket camera for everything. my X100 for the pure joy of shooting street photography and landscapes. but the Siggy for slow, considered, high detailed, still life. It was the image detail I...

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    The first shot was the X100. This one is the Sigma, but I have had to halve the size of the jpeg so I could upload it. Hopefully it serves a purpose

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    I ran a quick test between the two cameras. Each set at ISO100 and f8. Please excuse the difference in focal length. The focal point for each shot was exactly the same, the centre of the picture. I've taken only the centre third of each to compare. Quite a difference. No sharpening...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    whoo hoo. My DP2M arrived yesterday. All batteries charged and ready to go. all I need to do now is wait for the weather to improve. One of the first things I am gonna do is a resolution comparison with my Fuji X100

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    I had a play with some of the shots on Ponds Place. wow, e images are razor razor sharp. A quick convert to TIFF and then straight into LR4, no problems. Can't get over how crisp the images are. even comparing them against some of my shots with a Canon7d and my 70-200L lens (which is of...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    After DSLRs and the convenience of excellent quality zooms, I have gone back to the X100. Quality is excellent. a single focal length makes you work and think for the image. But I reckon that handling a DP2 Merrill 'thingy' will slow my photography down even further sothat it almost becomes...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    although not yet possessing.a Merrill, I had decided a few days ago it would be my first purchase after Xmas. The image quality and quirks all seem to bring a bit of zen into photography. I read on another forum someone asking for a comparison against a Nikon d800 to see just how the...

    Sigma CameraStore reviews Sigma DP1/2 Merril

    I have been looking for picture perfection for a while now. After dslrs I have now settled on the fuji x100. Such a pleasure working with one focal length. Was interested in the Fuji xe1 becaus elf that new sensor, but when I saw the raw files coming from the dp2m, it got me very interested...

    Sony New to RX100, Question about tripods

    Have just bought a tiny little tripod from manfrotto. It is so small it fits on the camera and you barely notice it is there. It comes in two sizes. It is purpose made for compacts and helps the camera sit about half and inch off the ground or platform. Sorry, I can't remember the name but...

    Sony 7 top end compacts compared. Amateur photographer magazine UK

    Certainly worth a read. Great article and interesting comparisons. As you can imagine, the rx100 comes out on top in all aspects. Magazine date is 24th November and is out in the shops on Tuesday.

    i can report that my images taken with the RX100 have been accepted by a stock agency. Testament to the camera's ability no doubt.

    Sony Distortion correction in LR4

    There is some chatter about the effect of the distortion correction for the RX100 in LR4, causing the corners to degrade. I had a look at my files in LR and could see that corner resolution is below that of the centre (nothing special there of course). As I understand it, the correction is...

    Software-Corrected Barrel Distortion Revisted: Sony RX100

    Ever so glad this thread is here. I was wondering why the corners of my shots are badly distorted and full of CA. particularly the bottom right hand corner. I may have to resort to the Sony raw converter and convert to tiff before opening up in LR, and see if this makes a difference. Any...

    Sony Stock Photography. Anyone been successful using the RX100?

    Just a thought . Took some potential stock pics last week, and thought about submitting them. Just wondering if anyone else has and to hear what comments if any had come back, mainly about noise levels.

    Sony Time Mag names RX100 as a invention on the year

    Have to say it's a wholly inaccurate little article. 1" sensor (2.5cm). now readers of the article will think the sensor in it is huge!. Only 20% slimmer than a digital SLR? surely not, surely more than that! well its nice that its being 'bigged up' I suppose.

    Oh, and i reckon there is not a comapct camera on the market 9of the same form, eg LX7) that can beat it at the moment.

    Sony RX100 owners: still loving it?

    an interesting thread of posts! Vive la difference! The RX100 isnt going to appeal to everyone, but as a few of the 'posters' have pointed out, the camera's form, functionality and IQ suits them perfectly for what they use it for. Ihaving downsized, and only having the fuji X100, i wanted a...

    Sony Does the RX100 have really sharp image capability? Nah...

    Certainly the images I've shot with my RX100 have been very sharp indeed. Falls off at the edge, but in the middle; excellent, particualrly at mid aperture Certainly comparable with my fuji X100 (see my thread on here a month or two back).

    Sony First 'light roomed' shot with the Sony RX100

    No. i have tried this once before mainly out of curiosity, but with a different camera, and the results were not pretty. If one can make small and subtle changes, then no probs, but otherwise I wouldnt waste my time.

    Sony First 'light roomed' shot with the Sony RX100

    Cheers KianO. The new LR4 grad filter really does pull out some astounding detail. I remember when i took the shots yesterday, the sky was completely blown (according to the camera), but there must have been detail there to rescue. I even took some shots of the sky at the end of my sojourn...

    Sony First 'light roomed' shot with the Sony RX100

    i usually only use the jpegs as visual indexes when i am viewing my folders outside of Lightroom. But i think i shall just shoot raw from now on when using the RX100. but, boy-oh-boy, is that lens a cracker!!!? and so is the sensor!!!!

    Sony First 'light roomed' shot with the Sony RX100

    Took this little gem of a camera out today round the back of where i work in Gloucestershire. Wanted to see just how much detail i could drag out of the camera when processing in LR4. I am very very pleasantly pleased, particularly with the sky, because the amount of detail i managed to...

    Sony iso3200 picture comparison between Fuji x100 and sony RX100

    all pictures are completely free of post processing and are just RAW files exported as 16 bit jpegs. I must say I am very surprised at the performance of the Sony. Luke says it perfectly I think, the Sony sensor is much better than it has a right to be, but i also think the lens has a lot to...

    The two attached photos are both at f2 3200ISO and are the central crop of both cameras. there has been no PP whatsoever. point of focus is on the white and yellow spine of the book in the centre of the picture. RX100 is 1961 x 1775 pixels X100 is 1611 x 1404 so, take a look and make...

    Sony pictoral comparison between RX100 and Fuji X100

    F2on the x100 is'notoriously soft, so I reckon the rx100 will beat it hands down. This was the reason I chose f5.6 as it generally gives the best results on the x100 . That said, I will give it a shot this weekend.

    Sony pictoral comparison between RX100 and Fuji X100

    As I have both cameras i was intrigued as to the comparative image quality. Just done a test shot from the same position, and converted to JPEG with only fill light added in Lightroom. Yes the colour cast is different but thats because the Sony was on DAYLIGHT and the Fuji was on AUTO WB...

    Sony New RX100 Owner. Comments

    Wow! There you go. That sums up perfectly my experience with the RX100 since I bought the camera 48 hours ago. I'll add a bit more. Image quality: eye-poppingly good. not just for a small compact, but certainly rivals by Canon 7D and the 15-85mm lens i had attached to it. Honest...

    Fuji Teleconversion lens.

    glad you found it useful Glyn. I now use the Fuji X100 wide angle converter and am please to report i am very impressed with it. Give a little bit of distortion but nothing that cant be sorted out quickly in PP.. The lens barrel makes the X100 very pleasureable to hold too. i know it'as only...

    Fuji X100 Firmware update 1.21 !!

    Well, the updates works for me. I have also noticed that it takes a mere one revolution to go from near to infinity on the manual focus ring, whereas t took two revolutions in 1.20 Let's hope this camera will get even better.

    Fuji X100 Firmware update 1.21 !!

    I had a chat with the Fuji chappy about much the same thing, that being, why have they released a camera that falls so short of the mark with regards to software and performance. Was it a rush job? I told him I have never had so much trouble and so many firmware updates with a camera before in...

    Fuji X100 Firmware update 1.21 !!

    I've have just had a call from Fuji UK to say that Fuji (in Japan) are fully aware of the issues around 1.20 and that they are currently urgently working on a new update and are going to get it out as quickly as possible. They called because my camera was with them for repair and they...
