  • 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 ...
  • Well, to put all this in perspective Dx Optics pro takes several minutes to save a D800 file to TIFF on my dual core Macbook Pro with 8 gig of RAM. If you enable prime noise reductions it takes ...
  • The SD1 actually shoots 5 FPS. Yes, the 7 frame buffer kind of makes this meaningless--and the AF I'm sure can't keep up with moving subjects at that rate. But if you fix the focus--say you're ...
  • SPP v 5 crashes from time to time on my Mac (was never fixed) and SPP 6.0 is unusable. I do not have that problem with Dx Optics Pro, Photoshop CC (or any prior version of Photoshop), Lightroom, ...
  • 6FPS comes in handy when photographing the Washington Monument on a windy day.
  • Created discussions SPP for Windows
    I can't get SPP to run reliably on my Mac, even when attempting to run it from a clean installation of Mavericks. So I'm going to install BootCamp, move my X3F files to a Fat 32 formatted external ...
  • Really, the weather has been that bad in the UK??? Or is that you're waiting for that perfect image to eclipse Charlie Waite?
  • Nice photos! Back in 2000 I went there with a 1.3MP Olympus P&S camera. On the way back hit the wrong button and erased them all from the camera. I guess after 14 years it's time for another trip ...
  • Replied in Balancing act
    Well, they are wrong or clueless if they don't implement the workarounds offered by the forum members. And they certainly show some type of learning deficit if they continue to use a camera that ...
  • Replied in One trick pony
    I have to ask where has this guy been for the past decade? It's a bit like someone being "shocked" that Suzuki does not have a luxury car division. He reminds me of someone who doesn't research ...
  • I wish Sigma could have an optional EVF that you can attach and that gets a feed from a high resolution video output. That way the basic camera stays at a lower price and for people who want to ...
  • You're looking at the wrong sample. Seng produced two files. One mistakenly with NR ON. And the second with Luminance NR OFF.
  • Replied in Q is superb!
    Seng, Thank YOU for taking the time to make the comparison. I get to play with new Foveon files AND watch the world cup on the same day. Does it get any better? ;)
  • Without NR the Q looks fine. You have to add a slight brightening curve to the Q tiff. But I don't think now that there is any "issue" with foliage. Luminance NR kills detail in the Foveon files.
  • Seng, Yes, please reprocess without noise reduction! :) I think that will help.
  • Seng, What were the noise reduction settings and sharpening settings when you exported from SPP?
