The first pic is actually DP3M ... I think this thread should probably be re-titled to include images from the other two Merrils and the SD1M if that's ok with the OP?

There is something about the little girl rolling the dough out that I really like.

She is very cute and her parents own a small gallery that supports various arts from up and comers! My friend Adrian had a successful exhibition there about a year or so ago.

I think that's a fine idea. It would be good to have a single thread dedicated to monochrome photos from all versions of the Merrill Foveon sensor.

Maybe a new title could be something like this:

"The Sigma Foveon M: pls share your monochrome images"

Keith,
I don't own a Sigma, but am told the focus is slow, and high ISO shots not-so-good, both of which would be problems in low light. Despite that, your pictures look great. How do you overcome those 2 issues ?

Hi Subhash,

Focus is reasonable IMO ... on about a par with the original X100 and fine for me because of my somewhat premeditated style of shooting.

As for high ISO ... 1600 is fine in monochrom provided you process the files in SPP prioritising the blue channel. Somewhat noisy in colour though and virtually unusable at 3200.

I don't remember the last time I took a colour shot (or reviewed one in colour) Gary and have zero desire to do so!

The way the foveon sensor renders black and white is out of this world IMO and I'm so happy with these two Merrills that I'd wag my tail ... if I was a dog!

Very nice. Oddly enough, if you had posted it as a film shot, you'd have had people raving about the magic of it

These are beautiful images, and convinced me to buy in.
I just ordered a DP2M online for$799, and should be here Monday !!
What have most people found to be the best RAW converter for the DP2M files ?

There's no options there really ... SPP. There is a converter available that only works with Mac out there somewhere but I have to say I'm pretty impressed with Sigma's default software.

Compared to the disaster that Fuji supplies with it's X series cameras it's a revelation.

I'm looking forward to testing it out soon. Unfortunately, I've heard of frequent software "crashes" with SPP on the Mac.

With the DP2M and the Sirui T-025X, I should be all set for some exciting times...

Enjoy ... and don't forget it's not always instant 'love' with these little Sigmas!

I've always been suspicious of "Instant love"- of any kins (LOL)

BTW, the 'other' RAW developer for X3F files is Iridient. Just downloaded and installed it on my Mac. Amazingly, nothing crashed, and it even opens 'converted to DNG ' files !! (Could THIS be instant love ?)

I've been using SPP on mac, mountain lion x, without any crashes. Sure, it's a slow program, but I tend to make as few edits as possible, export as 16 bit TIFF, and then edit further in Lightroom.

The only time I have had crashes using spp is when a batch convert more than 16 raw files to tiff. I think the program as a memory leak. I am using Lion w/ 16gb of memory and the raw files are stored on external FireWire HD.
