Thanks. I use a Sigma DP1, awesome camera.

I might go to Tehran in 2 months but from what I've heard photography is a big no in Tehran right now. If things loosen up then I'll take lots of photos for sure

Brilliant pictures. I have high hopes for this thread. If your other shots are as good as these ones it can easily become one of the best threads about London.

Hi Shapoor, is it easy to use this camera, kind of like regular Canon ones that you can just snap the shot and go to the other one or it requires adjustments and focus each time. Also is it too big, from what I see the lens is big but the body is just like any other digital camera?

Is there a style of this camera that you recommend that is small and will also take great shots or there is only one style?

Thanks buddy

Hi Alitezar, it depends how you'd want to use the camera; there are 4 modes on the DP1: Program, aperature, shutter, and manual (PASM). The program mode sets the settings itself (i.e. aperature and shutter speed) but if you want to get good results you're better off with the other modes. So, yes, the DP1 can be like a shoot and point camera but its image quality beats many DSLRs in the market. I personally find it easy to work with all modes.

The size is pretty much the same as an average point and shoot camera but it's a bit heavier (240 g). A DSLR's lens can be changed unlike my camera, there is no lens other than what is on the camera and it can't be changed. If you want to capture a wide angle in your frame the permanent lens is just fine.

Here's a list of similar cameras: SIGMA DP2, Leica D-LUX 4, Panasonic DMC-LX3, Ricoh GR Digital 2

The DP2 is as close it gets to a decent DSLR but it's more expensive than the DP1.

If you want to see shots taken by the cameras above you can search through flickr's camera finder and check each camera's page: http://www.flickr.com/cameras/brands/


Hope that helped

Amazing urban pics.

Canary Wharf should make Londoners proud. It's taking form in a really coold way.

I love Canary Wharf too, it's a small but amazingly good looking cluster.
