Colors of DP2

I’m back, and after dealing with sleep and such my brother got sick and needs attention. Spending lots of time at hospital. Well, I’ve also installed Snow Leopard and enjoying the new speed and snappier behavior. Although SPP felt slower, here hoping for a speedy upgrade from Sigma built on macier code ¬†:P

So, without further talk I give to you two shots taken with the DP2 and developed using Raw Developer. Well, first saved as DNG using LR2. I think these colors are so cool, don’t you? Perhaps it’s my iMac screen that makes everything red so bling bling but hopefully it looks good for you too! Oh, and in case you wonder what those strange stony things are, it’s stamps. :) The stamp on my top banner is made using a stamp like that.

  1. Very nice colors indeed! Amazing little camera, indeed. Here’s hoping the SD15 will render as well (if not better!). :)

    Really like the bird picture. Great DOF and composition!

  3. Hi Carl,

    Have you noticed any drawbacks of making a dng file from x3f?

    oops… wrong gallery!

    i remember that there was in the forum some guy making a profile for dp2 for Raw Developer… had some shots of bicycles as examples… can’t find it now though :( Looked promising. Not that those are bad though ;)

  6. Hi Bob,

    What forum was that? Could be interesting to see that post.

  7. Birkir, well.. The thing is that a little bit too much is already prepped inside the DNG from Adobe. So you could more or less get the same result in Lightroom as in Raw Developer but I have this feeling that LR still goes one step further, adds a little something. :) But it’s not as cool as with SD14 files where RD does all the work.

    No real drawbacks no. Except you loose lots of fancy LR features..

  8. Carl, so there is some fiddling around done when converting a X3F to a DNG file, even if you use the free DNG Converter tool from Adobe? I like really like working in RD, usually gives a great result

    @birkir, that was in the dpreview forum. the guy was pissed of not having native support in RD for DP2. Still can;t find grrrr… would love to play with it.

    could very well be… but i see now it was still a converted x3f (into dng) unfortunately…
