  • I guess all product shots until now were prototypes. If they make it sturdy and Arca-compatible I'll buy one.
  • I've never managed a shorter exposure than 1/250 seconds with my cheap wireless triggers.  Is this possible with the B1?
  • For me it's too early to come out with a verdict. I bought the DP2Q after using a DP1, SD15, DP2M, DP3M. It's the only camera I have at the moment and I don' miss the others. The reason for that is ...
  • Replied in DP2M to DP2Q?
    I swapped my DP2M and DP3M for the DP2Q without regret yet. The main reason was the shadow improvement of the Quattro. It's much easier to salvage underexposed shots. Addtionally the Q has much ...
  • Set the saturation warning to 7 and 248 and redevelop a less saturated image without warning. Maybe neutral color mode is enough or maybe you need to turn down saturation just a little bit. You can ...
  • From my experience with Foveon cameras I'm quite sure that bulb mode won't work. The reason for this is that the longer you expose the hotter gets the sensor and the more noise you will ...
  • Wireless triggers limit your cameras shutter to 1/250 sec or even less. In order to take a proper white balance with wireless triggers you have to manually set the exposure time to a longer value. ...
  • Sorry, but to me the Quattro +1.66 image looks like the Merrill +2.0. That's just 1/3 stop. There are visible differences in the highlight recovery between the cameras. The Merrill fills the ...
  • So let's do something else. This is the Sigma camera forum and we can find solutions for certain camera problems here. I prefer to be an optimist. Complaining is wasting time. Why shouldn't we be ...
  • Neg fill is not needed. Tell your daughter she does look younger/better/more alive in the first image ;-) Shadow roll-off is much better than Merrill. Skintone looks OK. What I don't like is the ...
  • It works for me if I switch my Windows 7 PC to an English user interface. Otherwise there is a bug in SPP with decimal comma and the software doesn't properly safe or recognize adjustment settings. ...
  • You need the full resolution jpg to review images at 100% and you safe a lot of time on your computer if the jpg is already developed. Uwe ;-)
  • If you want to have a full resolution BW image you need to take the luminance info from the top layer to modulate the lower layers. This way all the top layer's noise is copied to the lower layers ...
  • ... if you see Sigma cameras as a cheap and portable replacement for medium format. It's not better, faster or more versatile - just cheaper and lighter. Foveon is the only sensor which ...
  • I agree and share your frustration but diglloyd is wrong: "a common task that would take 30 seconds in Photoshop takes 30 minutes in SPP" is like saying MS Word doesn't develop my raw files. Uwe ;-)
  • From the Sigma website: "If you have Windows 7 (64-bit) or Windows 8 (64-bit) installed on your computer, please install Windows Update Program (KB2929755) for x64-based system prior to SIGMA Photo ...
  • Here are some of my macro shots (mostly DP3 Merrill). This is my macro rig: DP3M with L-bracket, Gitzo Explorer tripod, Gitzo ballhead with modified quick release plate.
  • I use the OnOne Perfect FX which was freely available lately. This software is able to show the Merrill raw files (not the preview jpg) but the quality is not comparable to SPP. There is a typical ...
  • No, it's 5.6 in all languages and it's really not a camera problem. Just SPP.
  • You need to reinstall SPP and choose "English" during installation in order to get the English SPP version. I don't know if works on a Mac. Maybe you have to set the language of your Mac to ...
