I took those cameras to Cape Cod. My new (to me) DP2s is delivering the same stunning results as my DP1. I took many comparison shots with my friend’s Nikon D90 and zoom lens (sorry, forgotten which) and my SD14. For quick shots the D90 was better, easier to use, but for portraits the SD14 had that extra je ne sais quoi. I WANT a reason to get rid of my slow SD14 (not that I have money for something else). The D90 was not the camera to do it.
I bought my SD14/50-200 setup for $510. A similar used D90 outfit would be around $900.
You can look at a variety of what I took here
The SD14 took this photo, among other, which easily beat those I took with the Nikon (to me).
The Samsung TL500 is a slick camera for guys who like gadgets but don’t take their photography seriously. There’s no good thumb rest. The menus behave like a Sony PS2 game. For a 1/1.7 sensor, the G12 can’t be beat for professionalism. I used the G12 to do some panoramas. I still love that camera as an all-arounder.
It took these photos at night with the G12.
My DP2s has been more finicky than my DP1! Strange stuff. Like it wouldn’t change exposure (I had to re-start). Hopefully this is just my error.
Here’s a DP2s shot. They’re still in their Anime make-up.
That’s it from here.
