Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO and film like appearance (Feat. Namma Bangalore Habba Event Pics)

Set of images taken at flea market during the night of Namma Bangalore Habba event (20th-Aug-17) at Sankey Tank Lakeside.
The images were shot with Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO. These foveon sensor based cameras are notorious in high iso situations. The idea was to keep shutter speed close to 1/125 with aperture wide open. However, in many case it has gone down to 1/30. While processing the raw X3F files in SPP, additional grain feature was enabled to render film like appearance. The results look similar to a 400 ISO film pushed to 1600.

Konica Pop at IISc!

Konica Pop is 80s point and shoot film camera with 36mm fixed focus lens. Fixed shutter of 1/125 but variable aperture F/4 ~ F/11 and Flash dependent upon selected ISO.
I got one from home, that belonged to my late uncle. My early childhood was captured using Konica. I still get fascinated whenever I hold it!

Some shots at IISc taken using Konica Pop camera with a roll of Ilford HP5 (expired) film. Stand developed using HC110.

Walking is preaching...


One day, the old wise Socrates walks down the streets, when all of the sudden a man runs up to him "Socrates I have to tell you something about your friend who..."

"Hold up" Socrates interrupts him "About the story you're about to tell me, did you put it trough the three sieves?"

"Three sieves?" The man asks "What three sieves?"

"Let's try it" Socrates says.

"The first sieve is the one of truth, did you examine what you were about to tell me if it is true?" Socrates asks.

"Well no, I just overheard it" The man says.

"Ah, well then you have used the second sieve, the sieve of good?" Socrates asks "Is it something good what you're about to tell me?"

"Ehm no, on the contrary" the man answers.

"Hmmm" The wise man says "Let's use the third sieve then, is it necessary to tell me what you're so exited about?"

"No not necessary" the man says.

"Well" Socrates says with a smile "If the story you're about to tell me isn't true, good or necessary, just forget it and don't bother me with it.”
