    Hi all,

    Just wondering is there any S2 Pro user here?
    Also if you are , have you ever use other DSLR ?
    How do you make those color in other DSLR ? :)

    I was quite surprised at S2 Pro tone and color balance somehow .. as the
    saying ..
    Velvia in a box .. in somehow quite true.

    Following are portfolio of a good friend of mine who is not a pro,
    but yet .. the tone n color balance is quite punchy [compared to my Nikon]


    take note of the la perouse and the rocks light shot.

    I notice that the S2 Pro is about $2,500 now. That's locally.

    I have used the S2 for portrait & studio work for the last 12 months. It
    suffers from problems universal to all digital cameras such as narrow
    exposure latitude, poor highlight tolerance and limited dynamic range. I
    find when I shoot in JPEG I have to be even more careful with exposure than
    with slide film.

    RAW is a good workaround but requires a bigger time expense in post-shooting

    Other than that the images look great once the exposure is nailed. I have
    also used a Canon 10D which is of comparable image quality but also suffers
    from the same problems mentioned above. The 10D also has smaller file sizes
    for some reason and allows more RAW images per CF card.

    I still find the tonality available from film is more pleasant than the
    digital images, especially in high-contrast situations. However for some
    reason most clients request digital capture due to the fast turnaround.
