new SD1M with bad pixels and 3 months in service?!
6 months ago

At first.. I'm big fan of SIGMA or I was till this time.. I had DP1, SD15 and now at last I bought SD1M. Everything would be ok if camera would work without any problems. But it isn't. On first pictures which I shoot I spooted completly black pixels with green glow in two places. I tried to shot only JPG, only RAW, different F stops, different focal lenghts with different lenses etc. badpixels appear on every photo.

I found some old topic about similar problem with RAWs from older SPP 5.2.1. I have SPP 5.5.3. Maybe that could be the problem with SPP but previous versions do not work with my camera (probably because of newest camera firmware - 1.09).

SIGMA service want to take my camera and send it to Japan. They said it will return after 3 MONTHS! Brand new camera with badpixels and I need to wait 3 months for them to repair, that's crazy...

Have anyone solution for that problem?

Sigma SD1 Merrill
