About me:

I'm taking pictures since over 45 years. Learned the handcraft by a landscape and architecture photographer. Rolleiflex, Mamiya RB 67, Nikonos IV, Sigma. Now I've come to Sony A900 and Zeiss. Almost with tripod.

  • Created discussions Split screen for SD1M ?
    Are there (still) any focusing screens for the SD1M on (European/U.S) market, which can be ordered? I would like to have a split screen and a grid in the view finder. Until now, there seems only a ...
  • Thanks to you both for the encouraging words ... :-) It's as always: The 2-front lensed Rolleiflex from my grandfather from 1936 I put out of the cabinet - and can use it. But today only after a ...
  • In my (rather large) company I'm accepted for "hammering at the bell" from time to time. I think this should also be done in direction of Sigma. I've never experienced such an ignorant company like ...
  • Now I would be very happy starting a thread with ≥ 149 entries: Oh, at my CPU SPP 6.3 is 1,5 seconds faster than on my DOS 3.11 As for years it is my constant opinion and exigent wish: SIGMA put ...
  • Created discussions OT: Batteries for DSLR A900
    I have invested several tsds. € in my good old beloved working horse DSLR A900, including flashlight, wireless TTL and amongst a Zeiss 24-70. My greatest fear is, that I may loose all that stuff ...
  • I've downloaded the Mac version, I have a *new* Mac Pro (the "beer can") quadcore with 12 GB RAM and 512 Gig SSD. Installed it! Just right out of the box it CRASHED. Didn't show any UI, but at once ...
  • I do not think, that it is noise in its original sense. The fact of the structure, which can be seen, let me think of remainders of the endless polishing of the silicon wafers during mechanical ...
  • Hello Roland and FDecker, the b&w picture *without* structures comes directly out of SPP. The b/w conversion *in* SPP. Because I did want to have more options in b&w, I bought the b&w plugin for ...
  • Thanks, too, for your answer and thoughts! As I said already above: give me your eMail address and I will send you the original exported SPP file, color, 16bit, 88 MB at the beginning of next week. ...
  • Hello guys, as I posted in "Further infos and material" above! Only the size of 88 MB prevents me from posting the tiff here ! There is *all* normal. I know, what I'm doing. It's NO noise, NO ...
  • Many thanks to everyone, who contributed to that thread! Sorry, I thought - after 15 years Sigma - that it is naturally starting the workflow with a 16bit Tif file out of SPP! My workflow is: SD1M ...
  • Hello Rudi, for what is your answer useful? I think for nothing except arrogance. On the other side, I think I must be the full idiot in photographing and using professional software, although I ...
  • The last days I made a picture of my village with my SD1M and decided to turn it into black & white with my new bought b&w converter. As I played a little with the blue sensitivity slider in the ...
  • http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-SD15-14MP-FOVEON-Digital/dp/B003AMST8K !? Hurry up!
  • Hello Mike, I'm using Sigma DSLR since SD9, as I said the SD1M is actually my camera. Besides of Sigma I'm using a Sony FF A900 with Zeiss lenses. I coming from many years of wet darkroom, many ...
  • with that post/thread and with that picture I do have a "deja vu". I'm convinced, that it had been posted exactly the same tenor some years ago. And, too, there was an endless discussion and ...
  • I often spoke out aloud my opinion and attitude to SPP: I's just and only a single desaster. On the other hand, professional, modern RAW developers are so complex and need to be so mighty, that it ...
  • same to me. Last year I hurried and got a new SD1M in addition with a 18–35 A. In those days I wrote here, that this may be the last chance to get a true 1:1:1 Foveon DSLR ...
  • I would recommend: Only from heavy tripod with heavy ball head, always set the f to the maximum of sharpness of the individual lens, lens with minimal distortion (e.g. the Sigma 50mm 1,4 EX) a ...
  • Actually I do not want to start an endless discussion or "religious war": With which parameters do you experts here in the forum calibrate your monitor? After 6 years, I just have bought a new Eizo ...
