  • 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...
  • I second the Yongnuo YN-560 III, I've used it on my DP2M directly in manual mode and have head tilt. These days you would probably get a RF-603 trigger (or pair) or a single YN 560-TX controller ...
  • Generally I use http://www.shipito.com to have things routed outside of USA when companies don't feel like doing it. The price seems to have dropped to $1 for shipping to Nevada then whatever cost ...
  • Sounds like the SD1 was in stock locally and the lenses would need to be ordered specially from Japan. In general I would not expect much stock of SA mount lenses (though the Canon/Nikon mount ...
  • I personally wouldn't expect CR Kennedy to have massive amounts of Sigma stock on hand at any one point in time and the price discount should be a reasonable incentive to be patient. One should ...
  • I don't think we're likely to get that due to the nature of the wide angle lens, I was more curious to see what improvements there would be from the DP1M to DP1Q. Looks like it'll be a pretty ...
  • Also looks like the lens has been modified a bit vs the DP1 Merrill according to what should be the geometric MTF charts: DP1 Merrill DP1 Quattro (Sorry, can't seem to get it to display properly ...
  • Looks like it hooks into the tripod mount to me, so should be usable across the entire DPQ line given the backs are the same.
  • Link to Terry's review is here: The Age Sounds like the usual speed report to me...
  • Not a problem. Sorry, what I mean is the DP1x is the last iteration of the original DP1 line (ie DP1, DP1s) which has some performance advantages (TRUE I vs TRUE II processor), so spending a little ...
