    @Tomo I made a thread a while ago, here.

    Mind, battery life is ridiculous, they're basically not usable at Iso values over 200, there's no viewfinder, and my pretty decent PC can barely handle the RAWs. But when the conditions are right, they're more than a match to full-frame DSLRs, in a pretty tiny, portable package.

    No post-processing except cropping, on a mini tripod this time this . Mind, this is not a macro lens.

    That's a very sharp picture. Incredibly sharp.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Anyone got any recommendations for a backpack for lugging camera gear around in. At the moment, I've got a D7000, couple of lenses and a flash. Bonus points if its got a slot for a laptop.

    I've got one of these, pretty good imo. I'm sure I didn't pay that much though.

    Back from the holidays - I took several cameras with me, but ended up taking 90% of my photos with the Sigma. Battery life aside, the camera is a joy to use, and the sharpness and detail resolution, as well as the often almost three-simensional look of the photos, continue to amaze me.

    Fabulous pictures mate. Just had a look through the Flickr set (and added you as a contact).

    There's quite a filmic look to your shots that I really like. How much post-processing did you do? Is that a Lightroom preset?

    Thank you! Not much post-processing - just some individual white balance adjustments and curves. No sharpening, no presets. I guess the "look" comes from the Foveon sensor, which renders pictures completely different compared to (nearly) all other cameras which use a Bayer sensor.

    Amazing photos Lou, can I ask where they're taken?

    Portable view - Never forget.

    That DP2M1125 shot is incredible. In fact all the mountain shots look amazing.

    I want one now.. Damn you!

    Well it's an amazing look. Love the colour and contrast. I expect the lens itself might be very similar to the Sigma E 30mm that I have for my Sony NEX-6 given they are both smaller 30mm f.2.8 lenses for an APS-C sized sensor.

    Your framing is excellent. Great pictures, you've definitely got a good eye for a landscape shot.

    Cheers! Mr-Brett, all photos were taken in South Tyrol, in the Dolomites, in two different valleys. The more "spectacular" mountain photos were taken in the Grödnertal (Val Gardena). Many of them were actually taken while I was sitting on the porch of the old alpine cabin we had rented! :D

    Lovely location. I was hoping to get some similar shots in Snowdonia in the spring. But the weather wasn't very good and there was poor visibility in the valleys the whole week.

    Best I could do in the circumstances, which isn't saying much:

    @UncleLou those images are amazing. Has it got OIS?

    Not bad considering the difficult conditions but I think if you'd left a bit more space above the mountain then it'd be a much better shot.

    I completely agree. Perhaps I can solve that in Paintshop. :)

    Done...



    It's not really too much faking. The sky is from a portrait orientation of exactly the same spot taken a few minutes earlier. Looks odd reduced in size, full size looks exactly like the other shots that weren't part of the panorama.

    Some shots from a walk yesterday along part of the Moyle way in Antrim. Probably the dampest forest I've ever been in.

    I saw that guy! He was at the NFL roadshow on Regent Street a few weeks ago. I got a photo of him dancing like a sex pest.

    Some months ago there was a new back up service that launched in closed beta. It would allow unlimited storage for free for ONE device. If you wanted to connect more devices it would cost.

    Can anyone remember what it was called?

    Been a while since I looked in this thread, have missed some great shots!

    Dusted the old 40D off the other day to take some snaps for the gf & her friends - annoying discovered that the usb connector has snapped off inside the body. Guess I should really get it fixed, but just can't be arsed at the moment.

    Was a bit embarrassing though, been so long since I've used the thing I was having great difficulty remembering how to change any of the settings! Shots aren't brilliant, and these are from FB so have been compressed to hell, but a couple turned out ok(ish).

    If you go down to the woods today...
    Felt very wrong not taking a pic of a branch at the seaside...
    More woods...

    Some nice shots in that. Went to the launch of a friends book - I am Dandy last month, some very nice shots in it. Was rather jealous ;-)

    I'm too scared to log into Facebook as there are a lot of people I feel guilty about not bothering with. :)

    Great assistant by the way!
