Hey ! Yes it is the Fuji EF X20. It is all metallic, a bit slow to charge (depend of what power you need) and transform the DP3m in a weapon ;)

You might have noticed that the DP3 (if we use correctly the focus functions) hook pretty good in low light. Now it hook in low light and in + is able to provide pictures :)

Right, but this works with all Merrills I reckon? I was thinking of getting a flash, I'll check the Fuji out then.

BTW Hulyss, do you have an example of a shot taken with DP3M + flash?

Fiujigma VS Darkness -  闇に対するフジヤマ

Tonight I will use the flash but I have some things to sort to make it work propelly.

The first shoot is to show noise and how are exposed the trees. The second is to show shadows, noise and color reading in the dark on a 30sec exposure. Nothing touched in SPP just exported to PS to fix some colors. The only vivble thing on screen was the white flower, for the focus.

Two shoots at 33Mp. No adjustments :





@ Palpman : Need to finish some fixings for the flash. I'm close to TTL support.

I'm still not sure if I want a flash for the DP3M. I'm considering buying an SD1 and then I could borrow my brother's cobra if needed. BTW have you tried the SD1? It is available for less than 1000 euros now and I have to say, it's very tempting...

Yes I owned it for a year. By this time, I owned some good lenses 50f1.4 - 85f1.4 - 150 macro... but was not impressed at all compared to the little DP.
With the new art lenses, it is far better, on par with the DP merrill.

But, if I were you, I would wait till photokina. The new SD, if he is announced this year, might be better (I hope).

Well, if the new SD features a Quattro sensor, I'm not sure it'll be worth it. We can still pray for a FF foveon... I'd put a lot of money on the table for that.

EDIT: these shots, taken with an SD1M + 35mm ART, are just stunning: http://fotogenerellinternational.wordpress.com/2014/03/09/review-sigma-35mm-f1-4-art/

The SD1m is a banding machine, really. It need a lot of PP to render it good. The DP3m is far better at all levels for this focal.
The SD1m do not have any kind of live view. You might think "...ok" but no. A DLSR, especially a foveon DSLR, need live view.

The next SD might have it. If not, it will be just ridiculous.

So if the next SD come the last, after the DP3Q, it might be a very good Quattro gear.

Well I am new to the DP3M, I like the details from the images when they are shot with care, but one feature in particular I could not believe it behaves the way it does. When in Manual mode, the on screen histogram goes away and there is no way to enable it! The histogram will be there in any mode but M. Shocking that they did not allow the histogram in M. I know it has quirks but this is almost unforgivable, especially for a camera that was only released in early 2013.

It's a good remark. I guess if the Quattro has the same issue, if you complain now they'll fix the firmware. The Merrills are probably frozen.

@ Hulyss #409 is a phenomenal image. And in my line of work I see many. This is incredible.

Bee on a Cosmos flower.   Very hard to get the focus and even this is not right.
