Back from Photokina!

Well, we came back sunday evening – a long trip I must say. Next time I’ll drive a Ferrari or something. We were three persons and we had three nights, two of them in my car and one at Bob and Olgas home Two nights in my car with three persons and if you have good imagination you might understand. :D (it’s a small car my A2).

The fair itself was great! I did have a closer look at the new Canon 5D Mark2. In short: flat, plastic images, fantastic movies! Although swimmy effect when moving a hand for example fast in front of it but much more controlled and MUCH better IQ than Nikon D90. I was surprised on how little you could acually control anything during shooting or even before shooting. Not even aperture you could decide!

I tried to have a closer look at the Leica S2 (was only shown inside a glassed box), I went around shooting a bit with the Hasselblad H3D II 31MP and I would lie if I said I didn’t want one. Thou it’s noisy as my SD9 on higher ISO than 200. Had fun with Fuji films little 3D camera – amazing thing really. I wish that Sigma had something like that going. The new 3D prints that comes more or less with the camera is also very very cool. No glasses needed.

I had my DP1 on me, Linn had her favorite combination of SD14, battery grip and 30mm 1.4. Always looks great on her. And she refuses to let me help her carry it. Pride! :) People constantly stopped me asking me questions about my DP1 – it’s really amazing how many conversations I had because of the little thing. I even made some new friends becuase of it.

The SD15 is too new for me to have anything to say about. The DP2 is a DP1 with a faster and better internal slight changes on the outside to the better – you will probably like it. Not much to say yet. Will probably be available somewhere around PMA. My guess.

I’m working hard with young people and will try to develop some of my images from the fair together with some stories if possible. :)

    This is a short article for a 2 or 3 days Photokina trip… I expect the SD15 is a good improvement because guess why – Georges is persuaded it is :D Sigma is becoming better and better …

    I accidentally have seen a large panorama taken by a Hasselblad somebody rolled out on the floor for about 2 minutes – that was great! Well, 6 hour presence were much too less :/
