Behind the Scenes

Ever since hearing about the DP3 Merrill compact digital camera, I knew it was something I wanted to get my hands on and try. Knowing it had the Foveon sensor inside it was a huge reason, but it was also aesthetic: I just love the look of this little device. I knew it would perform well during my travels and out and about, but since I’m primarily a studio shooter I was anxious to see how it’d do in my shop. Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed. This camera does it!

Hanging Grapes | This is the first shot I took after placing the DP3 on a tripod. I am literally blown away by the color handling and detail. I adjusted the contrast a bit, but that's it. So much detail. Camera: DP3 Merrill | Shutter speed: 0.8 sec | Aperture:  f/5.0 | ISO 100

Strawberries in Basket | While shooting these berries for a story I decided to once again see how the DP3 handled things. Let's say I'm thrilled with this camera. Camera: DP3 Merrill | Shutter speed: 0.6 sec | Aperture:  f/5.0 | ISO 100

Lavender Sprigs | What amazes me is the DP3's ability to capture so much tonality. I have to keep reminding myself this is a point-and-shoot, after all! Camera: DP3 Merrill | Shutter speed: 1/13 sec | Aperture:  f/2.8 | ISO 100

Lavender in Cup | Again, the DP3 can handle the tones just fine. Did I mention the detail? Camera: DP3 Merrill | Shutter speed: 1/13 sec | Aperture:  f/2.8 | ISO 100

White Flowers In Cup | Another quick still life, this time working with opposite values. Man I love this little camera! Camera: DP3 Merrill | Shutter speed: 0.3 sec | Aperture:  f/2.8 | ISO 100
