  • No, it's the opposite, during and after sunset. I waited for the sun to to go away in the second shot, hoping to get a more colorful sky. Overall I thought the noise level at the darker area was ...
  • Created photos Crater Lake with SD1M
    Crater Lake, 43.6MP stitched from 5 shots of SD1M with 17-50mm/f2.8 at 25mm. A normal ultra-wide with 10-20mm/f4-5.6 at 10mm. Cheers! -Frank
  • Start from top left and clockwise, they are neutral, standard, vivid and landscape. Wow, I didn't know it was the landscape mode that produced the weird yellow hue; looked even worse than vivid... ...
  • Agree, all Fuji X series cameras are great looking little beasts, appeal to either the film generation old farts or the young hipsters (I mean, I got one...). But IMHO, in terms of image quality ...
  • Well, I wouldn't say it's Fuji's color, it's one of the presets from SILKYPIX, can't remember which. Fuji's camera JPG could be more vibrant, sometimes too much for me. Yes both SD1M images used ...
  • Brought my new best buddy SD1M to the Columbia Gorge before the Oregon rainy season kicked in. The SD1M came with the 17-50mm/2.8 as a kit. So far I feel it does the job most of the time, but the ...
  • Meanwhile, has DPREVIEW given up on reviewing the Quattro? Just a thought...
  • Ha, I think there are "love birds" on the beach, just two :) Here is a simpler one: Heceta Head Lighthouse.
  • My SD1M arrived timely, very excited to bring it with me during the labor day weekend. With just an 8GB card, basically it's like bringing a film camera with just three rolls of low iso film. Obvio ...
  • Oh darn, this is what the whole sentence says... "For those who have RAW data (X3F file) taken with SIGMA cameras other than the SIGMA dp2 Quattro, Merrill series and SIGMA SD1, please continue ...
  • I got the GR earlier and have used Silkypix for it several times, but then I find the in-camera raw development pretty convenient to use, plus the Silkypix doesn't help fixing the color moire, so ...
  • Thanks for the insight, Tom. I know that the focus shift for Sigma lenses on other systems is fairly common, and they often need to be calibrated by the lens and the body, individually... But I ...
  • And here's another previous thread with people's sample: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3541660#forum-post-52098926
  • Thanks for everybody's input, helped me made up my mind. Now it's just the waiting time for it to fly over the Pacific ocean!
  • Well, I'd admit that I looked for it every time I had buildings in the picture... I asked for it, so might just be a problem for me~
  • Yes, pocketable and all the modern aspects make me want to carry the GR around all the time. But you really need to be prepared for the moire...
  • Oh that's interesting, 15 seconds for SD1M, wow... I just timed my SD14 for a kitchen scene and the writing time is around 10 seconds. Too late now, I just ordered a SD1M!! Btw, also interestingly ...
  • I agree that my test was not rigorous and the original conclusion stretched a bit too far. Mainly I thought the SD14 output could had been even better if I had a stronger lens on it. But it did ...
  • The moire on GR isn't a problem when you use it "properly," I mean for the more common ways it's designed for, like street snapping, or friends and family events. Even on the textiles in closeup ...
  • Thanks, that's great advice. Yes I think I can wait for Q to mature ;-)
