  • Thanks, I will try that Seagull magnifier. The optics don't have to be that good. I just need proper magnification in the center of the viewfinder. I will compose the image without the magnifier ...
  • Sorry, I have to pop up this thread again, because I have two questions: 1. Is there a proper magnifier that is NOT a right angle finder? While it might be practical for some purposes, it is pretty ...
  • Exactly. I'd rather change the battery every 36 shots because of Live View than live with such a low hit-rate. At least they should have given us the option by implementing Live View. Those who ...
  • I can not find the Fotodiox magnifier online. Do you have a link where I can buy it?
  • Thank you for your tips. I don't think that sending the camera to Sigma would solve anything, because on a test chart the focus is 95% accurate. It really seems to be an issue of worse than optimal ...
  • This is driving me nuts! I "upgraded" from the DPx Merrill cameras to the SD1 Merrill because I love the Foveon look. At least I thought it would be an upgrade, because I wanted more range than ...
  • Replied in Quattro B&W
    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 ...
