  • Replied in MAMIYA
    Many don't remember, but Mamiya, at the beginning of the digital revolution, took out a huge loan to develop the Mamiya ZD, which wasn't exactly a success. That gamble made the camera division ...
  • Let me guess, you're applying all your adjustments in high resolution mode at 100% magnification on screen? If so, that's your problem. If not, then you don't have a very powerful computer. I've ...
  • I was just trying to say that I doubt people cross shop a FF Nikon/Canon with Sigma. So I doubt new FF DSLRs will impact Sigma sales. As I already have a D800 I'm not that interested in a new Sigma ...
  • I'm more interested in what impact the C7 Corvette is having on Suzuki car sales.
  • Replied in I LOVE tripods
    Seriously, there is so much you can do with a tripod it's almost criminal to suggest you shouldn't always have one (yes, part sarcasm). But seriously: (1) Allows you to shoot at lower ISO. I'll ...
  • Replied in Why so?
    Only the SD14 is supported by PhotoAccute--and with only two lenses profiled. That probably had a lot to do with why it did not work. I've used PhotoAccute with a D700, and it really works.
  • What do you mean by large format? A film based view camera, or did you mean medium format digital?
  • David is 100% correct. The SD1/D800 series cameras are all you need to fill up an Epson 3880. PP skills, shot discipline, and the quality of your glass make more of a difference than getting up ...
  • No. You have to let 6.1 "load" the preview files for a long time. Perhaps ten or more minutes. Once that it does that ONCE it works fine after that. For a long time I would start up 6.1, not see ...
  • Hi David, Hope you are well. Here is a photo of a county park about two miles outside of Anchorage. It's about 10 pm at night in this shot. This isn't even a national park! Also, in the prior year ...
  • Alaska is really only easily accessed from the west cost of the US. Alaska Airlines have five flights per day (non-stop) from Los Angeles to Anchorage. For everyone else it's a long flight. Also, ...
  • Replied in Brief message
    Laurence, That's terrible. I hope you recover soon. Rest up and take care.
  • Without reading the posts I have no idea if this is a problem or not. Commercial speech generally isn't as twisted and deceptive as political speech. I doubt someone was posting how they were ...
  • I'm a beta tester. Now that SPP seems to be running fine on my versions of Mavericks I'll give it a try on Yosemite. Check this thread in a day or two and I'll let you know what I find.
  • The current version of SPP now runs without crashing on my late 2008 MacBook Pro with 8 GIG of ram. It used to crash all the time. But yesterday I processed 100+ SD1 files to TIFF and it did not ...
  • This technique actually works. In the past I used it with my D700. Making the profile doesn't take long. New profiles appear every few months. So once you make a profile it will take some time for ...
  • Replied in I have to ask
    How exactly do the Sigma and Hoodman LCD viewfinders work? Sigma says their loupe magnifies the LCD 2.5 times. So does that mean the image doesn't look like an image as seen from a conventional ...
  • The DP series beat anything if you're looking for a view camera like "slow" experience mated to an ultra light weight package. When you hike at high altitude or hike for long distances or mountain ...
  • The fifteen second wait with the DP series is baffling. The SD1 can instantly show you your histogram. On the other hand, why can't David rely on the pre-shot histogram? Is it inaccurate? I've ...
  • Replied in The Cost of Free
    Sigma should team up with Dx Optics Pro, pay them to integrate the Foveon code, and then sell this new version of SPP (Sigma only) for 49.99 or 99.99. Something like that. It would be worth it ...
