Examples — Nature

Examples here were shot at a variety of ISOs, mostly with Zeiss lenses, to show off the maximum potential of the 1D Mark IV. Seem comments on individual images.

Unless otherwise noted, examples are processed straight from DPP with little or no post-processing, in order to show the image quality as produced from the camera.

Color rendition

My expectations for color balance were not what I’m used to; choosing Daylight for white balance tended to result in very warm white balance. I don’t yet understand this behavior except that perhaps the 1DM4 sensor is more responsive than previous sensors, especially to the Zeiss lenses, which tend to have a pleasingly warm color balance.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
