My Sigma DP Merrill & Leica Blog: Sigma DP Merrill Love

My Sigma DP Merrill & Leica Blog: Sigma DP Merrill Love | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it
Lainer's insight:

Everyone hates the Sigma DP Merrill camera because they are a pain to use. So many quirks. I love them. They aren't as quick and easy to use as the Fuji X series or the Ricoh GR or any other P&S type camera. They are not good in low light situations past ISO 800 unless you use it in B&W, and it's best to use a tripod. But the resulting files when you take the time to get to know these battery sucking beasts are quite phenomenal and nothing comes close to the details or 3D effect "Kodachrome film" look of these cameras. Pixel peepers will have their jaws drop when they zoom in. Leaves look like leaves, not blotches. Fur on my dog looks like individual fur strands and not smeared. So choosing one of these cameras isn't a matter of convenient shooting. It's a matter of top quality results from methodically slow calculated shooting. This camera is intended for landscape and street in better lighting conditions, and on a tripod. Of course I bucked that trend and take pictures of my dog.

Does Fuji Cheat with its Sensors?

When testing cameras, it is not unusual to see a situation when one camera can produce results a bit darker or brighter than another. In some cases, lenses are to blame for this variance, since most lenses cannot ideally transmit all of the incoming light. What this means, is that a lens with a maximum …

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD ( Fujifilm ) - Review / Test Report | Photozone

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD ( Fujifilm ) - Review / Test Report | Photozone | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

Verdict


So is the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD the magician that it is supposed to be ? Well, mostly. I reckon the sample images showed you that the bokeh is mostly as smooth as silk except in really difficult scenes (where most conventional lenses would fail as well). The rendition of out-of-focus highlights could be a little better though. Other than that, the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD inherits most of the characteristics from the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R. It combines an ultra-large aperture with high quality results. At large aperture settings the center quality is already pretty high whereas the borders/corners are at least on a good level. The resolution is much more snappy at f/2.8 and images are very sharp across the image field between f/4 and f/8. The very low amount of lateral CAs also contributes to the high sharpness perception. Image distortions are nothing to worry about whereas vignetting can be an issue in RAW images between f/1.2 and f/2. However, Fujifilm is relying on image auto-correction so this is usually a lesser issue from a user perspective........

The Fuji X100s and X100t | Ian MacDonald

The Fuji X100s and X100t | Ian MacDonald | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

I have been shooting with the Fuji X100 series (X100s / X100t) for several years now, and I can say with complete confidence that these cameras have changed my photographic life.  I’d like to share my experiences with them, discuss some technical aspects, and show some images.  Consider this a walk through my journey with the Fuji X100 series that starts with the Fuji X100s, and moves into my new love affair with the Fuji X100t.   It’s a long read, there is a lot of sample photos, and I hope you enjoy it! ......

The abstraction of an idea | Ming Thein

The abstraction of an idea | Ming Thein | Best Quality Mirrorless Cameras | Scoop.it

In a previous post, I tackled the general concept of an abstract photograph. I think it can be refined down something of the following: an image which is balanced equally across the entire frame such at that no one area attracts your attention more than any other area; the eye wanders, takes in the details, and never really lingers. By this definition, there is no subject since no one area or element of the photograph stands out more than any other; however, you could probably also argue that the entire frame is really the subject. Semantics is a funny thing, though, and this isn’t quite the definition of the term: we must think in terms of essences and summaries instead. An ‘abstract’ of a paper or article is really the core idea distilled down to the simplest possible terms; the objective elevator pitch rather than the marketing tagline. Today’s article tackles the visual equivalent of that: how do we take an idea and translate that into something visual? .....
