I tried my best to make a shot that more or less looked the same and to my surprise I learned a thing along the way. The DP1x (and perhaps DP2 and SD15 too) is extremely sensitive to what WB you select. Make sure you pick the right one and your colors will look much better! I selected the wrong one first in the scene below and SD14 got it right using auto WB, but DP1x looked correct first after using “Shade” wb – all other options made orange look red! (This is a shade situation)..
All developments done using Sigma Photo Pro 4.2.
Dp1x – f11, 13s iso100. Full size. If I selected Incandescent WB then the greenish corner issue disappear but over all colors will be slightly less pleasing although some parts looks a bit more true. Like the green color. See that version here.
SD14 – f11, 8s, iso100. Full size. Strangely I had a short exposure time here, might be that light fell quickly at the time but .. hmm.. anyways, this SHOULD give the edge to SD14 so bare that in mind.
And some easier to view comparisons shots..
DP1x to the left. SD14 to the right.
Open up those shadows! What happens then? I added som e nasty X3 fill light so see what was behind the darker areas of the picture. How well does the DP1x hold up? The DP1x crop is from the second shot above, using the incandescent WB. Dont’ ask me why.
Another note. The Sigma 10-20 that I used on the SD14 performed very nice before I got the DP1 , but now, knowing how good the lens of the DP1 is everything else looks pretty pale in comparison. True with the DP1x as well. There might of course be a slight difference in focus as well, it’s easier to focus perfectly on the DP1x for sure. LIVE VIEW PLEASE!!! (SD1)
