Being A Spy – With The Minox DCC 5.1 – street photography

Hi there…

Today I’m going to share with you some shots I took with the world known spy camera, the Minox DCC 5.1, which I already possessed for a few of years. As far as I could remember, I only took the camera out twice before this. And in both occassions, I didn’t really use it much. In fact, I almost forgot that I had this little spy camera. Hahaha!

The little Minox gave me a very special feeling and mood when taking pictures. I had to be very gentle, understand it’s limitation, such as 42mm field of view and ISO 100 only. I have to be very selective when shooting this camera, I have to avoid subjects with backlighting, frame my shots carefully as I do not want to crop anymore out of the little 5 megapixels images, and so on.

In the end, I know this is cliche, to get good pictures depends almost totally on the photographer. Good cameras do help a little, but if we think again, what actually are we aftering? The image quality? or the colors? Or the sharpness?

No! The true essence of photography is the content of the pictures.

This is the third time I took out the Minox Leica M3. Welcome you all to have a look at the pictures I shot last Saturday.

Sigma DP2 Merrill To The Old Quarter – fine art & street photography

Only 2 cameras ever made me so excited and so passionate to shoot with. The first one is the Leica M9, and the second one is the Sigma DP2 Merrill. Maybe people will start questioning me why not a D4 or a D800E or a 1DX?

Well, first of all, I shoot raw, I don’t need any hocus-focus fancy camera features. And I’m not a sports cameraman. I don’t shoot wild life in some caves. I don’t want to break my neck because of the weight. I don’t enjoy the public attention for carrying large DSLRs. I don’t like people to think that I’m a Pro or a photo journalist. I don’t bla…bla…bla… I can mention 1001 reasons why I don’t like DSLRs. Perhaps except when I’m doing my commercial photo works or when I need to shoot under heavy rain, then I’ll carry a DSLR.

Clients loves big DSLRs. They think the bigger a DSLR, the result must be better, too. That’s of course normal that they think in such a way. What they didn’t care to know is that what really matters in creating good pictures is the photographer himself. You can give a non photographer person the best camera in the world, and in the end he still will not make better pictures than a Steve Mccurry with a $100 pocket camera.

Anyway, back to the Sigma DP2 Merrill, this is a fantastic camera. Looking at the full resolution images in my monitor, feels like looking at shots by MF (medium format) and view cameras. Excellent details in every shots. Amazingly vibrant colors, too.

The only drawback of this camera is the white balance in camera. It really sucks! It is only precise in sunny outdoor. THE SOLUTION: always use custom white balance. Buy an Expo Color Disc or just a Mennon white balance cap will do.

The first test shot I did indoor was so horrible, especially in the camera’s monitor. It was full of reddish and magenta-ish colors all over the picture. I even thought the camera sensor was damaged or something. Really a nightmare! But after getting that picture processed in the SPP (Sigma Photo Pro) 5.5.1, it turned out okay and normal. LOL! THE MAIN PROBLEM is because I took the shot underexposed. It would be much better if I had overexposed the shot by 0.3 or 0.7 stops. Highlights are easily recovered in the SPP.

Let me show you the ‘nightmare’ I mentioned just now. I used a Ricoh GR Digital II to capture how the image appeared in the Sigma DP2M. Here it is:

R0010354

Here’s the picture after being processed in the SPP 5.5.1. Almost clean from those magenta-ish and red-ish evils:

Okay, now I welcome you to enjoy watching some of the shots I took with the Merrill.

Walk Around with My Beloved Pentax Q – street photography

It was really love at the first sight when I saw the Pentax Q in the internet for the first time.

I knew that I had to get that camera whatever it takes.

You know, when it comes to ‘love’, price is no longer an issue (although at the time, the price was rocket high).

When I knew it was available in Jakarta (Indonesia), I headed straight away to the store.

I really loved this camera! Tiny sensor, amazing pictures.

Just take a look at these pictures below. Most of them are severely cropped.

I took them all last Saturday morning.

I only brought the Pentax Q with 47mm f/1.9 with me.

No other cameras.
