  • The 15" also has a dedicated GPU, so processing with OpenCL (i.e. Adobe) would be faster as well over the 13".
  • Still looks fairly noisy on distant shots of the Waipio cliff faces and skies, fairly consistent with my own shots that I've looked at - super detailed but with noise (like film grain). I find the ...
  • If they can see it online they can steal it essentially. Lots of this happening in wedding photo portfolios and business where people assume if they can see it online it's in the public domain. If ...
  • Replied in I1Photo Pro
    The ColorMunki Photo is actually pretty good hardware, it's just a bit limiting with the existing software which isn't getting much attention from X-Rite and has bugs under Mac OS X. Pair it up ...
  • Replied in I1Photo Pro
    That would get you the new i1 Pro 2 hardware but not the license for i1Profiler, so unless Color Profile Suite is what you're after probably best not to get it. Having a read it is designed for ...
  • Replied in I1Photo Pro
    Usually the i1Pro hardware requires yearly calibration for max accuracy so you can get the date off the seller (has a certificate with next date or go by purchase date). The i1Pros come in UVcut ...
  • The ColorChecker Passport is for general purpose use with limited patch range and with the software is designed for DNG RAW files only. You can only really use the ColorChecker SG with Eye-One ...
  • You would think that is the case however some smaller sellers simply can't be bothered or are getting hit by size restrictions or liquid export issues (for the ink). I generally use ...
  • Replied in The End Times
    The grip is fine I think, most people seem to be critical of it without actually using it, it feels like... I'd be more concerned about the noise at ISO 100 to be honest.
  • OK thanks for that. I'm due soon to do some shooting in Hawaii with the DP2 Quattro so I'll break out the CWB to help out.
  • What's your recommended process for capturing the CWB? ColorRight, SpyderCube, other? Usually I'm using a ColorRight for TTL CWB but looks like I'll have to start using it more frequently if the ...
  • Usually they use ZIF (zero insert force) FFC (flexible flat cable) sockets for those sort of connectors, usually there is a latch that holds the cable in place after it's been inserted, either a ...
  • Well, one would ask why buy it in the first place? Seems a rather costly exercise to gamble on something you know is inevitably drop in value over time, since you appear to be in USA surely the ...
  • Not really. The key word here is "only". Sigma Quattro cameras have too many quirks and usability issues that the average customer basically wouldn't put up with (low ISO sensitivity, no optical ...
  • If they're really after one they'll buy it, probably when the next sales come through. To get upset because a retailer mispriced it for a while is not Sigma's fault. Even if they didn't get it at ...
  • Awesome deal for people who were able to get it at the discounted price, so it seems unlikely to reach that until EOL like the Merrills.
  • I've got confirmation of shipping on my DP2 Quattro order from B&H at the $499 price.
  • This looks to be more a B&H forgoing their profit margin than Sigma doing anything (otherwise everyone else would be on board). I'd say the SD1 -> SD1M price drop was more indicative of that, ...
  • Thanks for the heads up Historianx - just ordered a DP2Q to try out the new sensor. I guess that means there's some pretty good margins on the Quattro series if they can discount like that!
  • I'm seeing it as well, it looks quite blurry/distorted to me at 100%. I'll be curious to see what other people have been getting on their DP1Q's as well...
