Sigma DP1 Merrill Examples — Cottonwood Canyon Autumn Color
Now I’ve added an extensive page of Sigma DP1 Merrill autumn color images to my review of the Sigma DP1 Merrill.
Even if you think you’re not interested in the DP1M, I urge readers (subscribers) to view the examples to understand just how unique the Foveon true-color sensor is in the Sigma DP1 Merrill. The sensor has its oddities and eccentricities, as does the DP1M, but the per-pixel quality on both a sharpness and color resolution basis is astonishing.
Anyone looking to shoot black and white should consider the DP1M a superb choice for that idea— in some very practical ways superior to the Leica M Monchrom (though not for high ISO certainly). My hit rate with the DP1M for monochrome was vastly higher, and more fun and far less error prone, and that counts for a ton (as does the 10X price difference). This is not to say that peak quality from the DP1M can match the Leica MM, but it’s close enough, and often better for other reasons (like the post-shot conversion options that can make or break the tonal arrangement of a shot).
