Sigma dp1 Merrill in Virginia


Well-Known Member
After finishing up my prior years travel albums (see various threads below) I've been using my older dp1 Merrill camera around locally in Virginia. The dp1Merrill is the widest of the dpMerrill cameras, with a fine matched lens as its 19mm length (19x1.5 crop factor = 28.5 full frame equivalent) Here are a few photos, more mixed in on my photostream at flickr or most easily seen in the dp1Merrill 2023 album https://www.flickr.com/photos/sandyfleischmann/albums/72177720310448190

Lots more photos online in the first album link, note especially the Korean Bell Garden photos at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens park. All photos taken in Vienna Virginia, near Washington DC
The Ricoh GW-3 .75 widening extender attachment screws onto the dp1Merrill's 49mm threads just like a conventional filter attachs. It widens the image from an equivalent approximately 28mm image to approximately 21mm. I'll upload two views, without and then with the attachment. I've selected a small size to show them. Both images are in large sizes on flickr. The attachment does not seem to degrade the image.
Here is without the Ricoh attachment

In my dp1Merrill album on flickr you can also see images of the Vienna Virginia red train caboose, with and without the Ricoh attachment.
