Yet Another Photo Sampler

The pandemic has changed our lives in many ways; for instance, we have significantly cut down on travel, and this deprives me of one of my main sources of photographs for this website. Even within the area we don't move around much these days, and this further cuts down on the material available to me. I have therefore decided to present yet another sampler of different photos taken over the years. This time, though, I reprocessed all the original files using DxO PhotoLab 5 and its wonderful DeepPRIME raw converter engine (an older version of which I presented on this page a little over a year ago. It's even better now!)

I used to rely on DeepPRIME only for a select few high-ISO images. The reason is that on my quad-core i7 iMac, each photo took between 45 and 60 seconds to process; with my new computer, the same task takes approximately five seconds per image, so now I use DeepPRIME for all my RAW photos. To appreciate what DeepPRIME can do, take a look at photos 16 and 24 at 100%. Both were taken at ISO 10000, and in my opinion, the quality is spectacular. For those who are curious, my new computer hardware is briefly described here. Every photo on this page was taken with one of the following cameras:


Make and Model Type Sensor Size Format Resolution Owned since
Minolta SR-T-303 SLR 24x36mm film Analog 35mm film March 1974
Nikon D70 dSLR 6 megapixel DX / APS-C 3008x2000 April 2004
Nikon D300 dSLR 12 megapixel DX / APS-C 4288x2848 February 2008
Nikon D750 dSLR 24 megapixel FX / Full frame 6016x4016 December 2014
Fujifilm X100s Mirrorless 16 megapixel X-TRANS APS-C 4896x3264 March 2013
Fujifilm X-T30 Mirrorless 26 megapixel X-TRANS APS-C 6240x4160 August 2019

Many of these photographs have already appeared on this site, though some have not. A few technical details are provided under every image: camera make and model, focal length, ISO value, shutter speed, aperture, and, when used, exposure compensation in stops. As with A Photo Sampler and Another Photo Sampler, all focal lengths are given as 35mm equivalent values. Of the digital cameras used, only the Nikon D750 is full frame; all others have APS-C sensors with a crop factor of 1.5. Finally, all these images were shot in RAW, except numbers 7, 8, and 9 (captured as JPEG) and photos 1 and 22 (shot on film). Enjopy this virtual roll of 36 exposures!
