Eaton Hall with X-Pro1 and DP2M

Eaton Hall, Norman style Ch√Ęteau in King City, Ontario, was built in 1937 and now is very popular wedding destination. I like this place a lot. It is only 5 minutes away from my place and I am visiting it quite often, to test my cameras, lenses or just for a nice walk.


Today I took Fujifilm X-Pro1 with Fujinon 14/2.8 lens and Sigma DP2M  with me.

X-PRO 1 - surviving the hail storm

Today I was shooting in the garden when the hail storm started.

In a matter of seconds my camera got absolutely wet , but I decided to take couple more pictures.

Fujifilm X-Pro 1 vs. Sigma DP2 Merrill (first impression and final)

After traditional “spring clean-up” of my collection (read: sell, sell, sell) I got some cash to acquire new toys. Since I already have superb 35mm and 14mm lenses for my Fuji X-Pro 1 I start thinking about 18mm lens. But after some research I quickly realized that for additional $200 I can acquire Sigma DP1M. Similar focus length as Fujinon 18mm but it would give me an opportunity to explore famous Foveon sensor.
I closely followed Foveon story since its introduction about 10 years ago and several times I seriously considered to buy it but couldn’t justify the price. With the recent price drop DP1M become a very attractive alternative to Fujinon 18mm.
Next step, I contacted several fellow photographers and they all recommended going with DP2M instead of DP1M.  They unanimously claimed that DP2M sensor /lens combination is magical and rivals medium format quality. Medium format?? They’ve got to be kidding me…
But the seed was planted and few days later I made the most impractical decision, I purchased DP2M and ended up having two cameras both with exotic APS-C sensors, tons of quirks and lenses that cover similar focal length.

Obviously my next step was to compare them :)

Wet bananas!

Red & Blue

Well, I think I am done with still life studies. At least for now.
The weather is getting better here in Ontario and I should go out to get some fresh air :) So "City Structures" could be my next project.
