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.

  • 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 ...
  • Hello Vitée, I appreciate your answer very much. At the very end, I think, everyone of more or less professional photographers has its "secret ingredients" to give one's pictures the individual, ...
  • Hello Ted, thanks for your reply! This all sounds a little tricky and complicated? Although I will give RawDigger a try in the next weeks. I'm from old days, times where you had the film roll of ...
  • Marvelous and very skilled processed pictures, Vetee! I'm impressed - and therefore I would like to ask you, with which workflow you gain such excellent results (the nice dark sky and white clouds ...
  • If I remember right, Laurence was organizer and attendee of the most beautiful, exciting, dangerous and famous meeting of the Sigma user group in la Wantzenau , France, Alsace! It was in April ...
  • As long as I'm "on SIGMA", I know Laurence and his characterful personality. Many years ago I got from him for no money a set of Jack Russell terrier portraits for an info campaign in our village. ...
