Default This little girl is sooooo cute.

Small children react to Chato in many and varied ways. From stark terror to treating him like a teddy bear. This little girl (who is sooooo cute) took the most intelligent approach to date. She was cautious but curious. Completely unafraid, and yet respectful.








And finally a close crop from the above image...

All a touch out of focus. I focus manually, and thought I had it set on five feet, but actually was set at seven...

OOF can add to the shot sometimes, give it that artistic property.

Until this shot, I did not realize how white chato was.

The Sigma allows the use of the LCD to manually focus, but I never use it, and simply dial in the right distance. Bad Dave, bad Dave - This kid was a winner.

Chato hasn't had a bath in four years. Normally I simply take him to the ocean, but now that he has arthritis, I don't want him swimming in the Winter. Come this Spring, there will be a battle royal in my apartment as I try to get him into the tub...

Man I wish you get an autofocus IS camera! Your picks could be so much better. I know you love your Sigma, but it's just not the appropiate camera for the sort of quick, street picks you shoot.

It DOES have auto focus. Indeed, a whole bunch of settings to choose from. But you can't learn how to manually focus without manually focusing...

I have a great eye for distance, and a poor brain to remember what my setting were...

I simply blew it.

I'm using the Sigma DP2, and to get an idea of what it can do under better conditions, check out these two threads:

What an incredible camera - The DP-2 - Steve's Digicams Forums

One more shot from the Sigma DP2 - Steve's Digicams Forums
