  2. Sigma DP2 Merrill. It's amazing, the silliness one can get up to during a lockdown...

    Please keep running this when the mood strikes, I enjoy the photos.

  5. Foveon images always do look nice to me, but the question of how many "real" pixels the images have has always been a mystery to me too.

    Regardless, like Sandy, I would like to see you-all keep 'em coming!

  8. I too have done the same...it just seems Sigma is losing interest in the Foveon sensor which is unfortunate as I thought it always had potential as seen in the images posted here on this forum.

    Cameras still seem to be available from Sigma in the U.S., but the last info I can find on their plans is from February 19 this year. Impressive results all, but I probably have a lifetime supply of cameras and lenses.

  10. It has its own disadvantages: Low light nasty noise, terrible flare/glow against the sunlight etc
    But for sure, all users are happy with the details produced.

    Continue to enjoy these, thanks - even used, the cameras are still expensive, and I already have a lifetime supply of cameras and lenses!
     
  14. I noted one image had a Pentacon label.

    Which Foveon cameras have interchangeable lenses?

  17. Fabulous images. Color is very vibrant.
     
  18. I wouldn´t say "vibrant". True, rather. But indeed, these images distinguish themselves in their colour rendition.
    So maybe a shame to turn those images into monochromes ;-)
