    Hmm? I can see all pictures in the original posting. No link needed.
  • Replied in Quattro B&W
    Great photos with a nice tonality. Can you please write a few words about the postprocessing? I doubt those are ooc JPEGs ;)
  • If there will ever be an SD1 successor with a Quattro sensor, I really doubt that I will be keen on upgrading my SD1. I am really not convinced by the Quattro samples. I miss microcontrast and ...
  • Thank you! Hehe, sounds fun! Actually I don't need many improvements considering the SD1 body. It has an excellent handling and nice ergonomics (except for the ISO button) and no frills (which is a ...
  • Neither do they with pretty much any camera that I used in the last 5 years and that were a lot... Everything depends a lot on the in-camera-processing. Just look at the Ricoh GR and the Nikon A. ...
  • That's why I referred to the "common" CMOS-sensors as "CMOS Bayer" sensors.
  • That depends heavily on the subject. Few CMOS sensors have a smooth highlight rolloff. So if there are a lot of highlight rolloffs in the picture (cloudy sky for example) I think I could tell the ...
  • Hi, thanks, but I already updated the Firmware to 1.09. I think my confusion was caused by the AF not being as sophisticated and quick as I am used to from my previous DSLRs from Nikon or Canon.
  • Thanks! When I have nice pictures to post (other than my test pictures) I will show some here. In the meantime I might post some DP2M and DP3M shots from my recent vacation in Tuscany. I've just ...
  • Looks like this is my lucky day! Today I got my replacement for my decentered 50-150/2.8 OS from Amazon (the very last 50-150/2.8 OS they had in stock, maybe one of the last in Germany at all). The ...
  • You won't regret it! Once you are hooked to the Foveon look it's hard to let go of it even with all the quirks and disadvantages it has compared to a regular Bayer-sensor. It's such a pity that ...
  • This helped me a lot to deal with that and also to eliminate the issues with reading the LCD screens in bright conditions: http://www.kinotehnik.com/products/lcdvf/overview Though it looks pretty ...
  • Hello and thank you for this comprehensive answer. I think after the first surprises I can live with the AF that's just slower than I'm used to. You really have to make sure that there is enough ...
  • I just did some comparison tests with the 50-150/2.8 OS and the AF behaviour is the same as with the 18-35/1.8 And I also came to realize that the speed is far more dependant on a well-lit subject ...
  • I don't use the Sigma dock yet because I had no problems focusing on the test target. But that was at close distance of course.
  • The camera is set to single shooting.
  • Thank you, I hope so... I also have quite high expectations with lenses, especially when I use the SD1. I mean I don't buy a camera with such an excellent per-pixel-quality just to see one edge of ...
  • Thank you all for your replies. I'll try to explain it better (sorry, I am not a native speaker): When I half-press the shutter button I can instantly see the autofocus area blining red. But you ...
  • So I received my SD1 yesterday and really like the body, operation etc. Two things didn't go well: 1. The 50-150/2.8 OS is decentered. Left side is blurred while the right side is totally fine. I ...
  • Replied in It has arrived!
    Today I got my SD1 and the 18-35/1.8. Unfortunately the 50-150/2.8 is still on its way although it arrived in my hometown today, but then the tracking stopped. Anyway: Wow, this thing is a tank! I ...
