  • Hmmm, my initial reaction.... kind of weird greens for around here (Washington DC area I assume) on the Quattro. Plus I see some color in the fence center which may (may not?) be accurate. Kind of ...
  • Those are nice, thanks for posting! I'm always fascinated by the symmetry in nature. Best regards, Sandy http://www.pbase.com/sandyfleischman (archival) http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandyfleischman ...
  • We've all (DPxMerrill users) had the, 'it eats batteries" reaction LOL. I bought a total of 6 but indeed rarely use more than 2 (okay maybe 3) in a max day of shooting it. 2 Sigma, 2 Ricoh, 2 ...
  • I looked at Lea's large size online. It looks to me as though the settings sun was striking those uprights. Look at the light going down the poles... the first poles on the right nearest the sun. ...
  • I agree that the images don't do justice to the new camera... but then I prefer landscapes and naturals to random street scenes.... Nothing really to catch one's attention in that set. FWIW I ...
  • FWIW, I agree with the numbers above more or less. Maybe 2-3 batteries for a day of really intensive shooting with just the DP2Merrill with it set for fast shut-off. If I'm shooting another camera ...
  • Thank you for sharing your comments. The Bristlecone Pine photo is one of my all-time-favorite photos, especially in the large size print. I remember well too how we were going around the Resort ...
  • Why am I not surprised that you didn't like it?? You wrote before you even had one that you didn't like it. I'd say you did not begin using the camera with an unbiased, open mind. PS: You don't ...
  • The Facebook group I linked is a good site to see the Japanese early purchasers' get a feel for the camera and post their images. Real-life images in addition to reviewers' images. Their ...
  • There are several DP2Quattro photos online at the Facebook Sigma Camera Users group. Taken by Japanese users. https://www.facebook.com/groups/43983768203/ Best regards, Sandy http://www.pbase.com/s ...
  • I select colormodes in SPP, since I shoot RAW.  I tend to select standard colormode with the DP2Merrill most of the time. Sometimes for landscape and naturals, sunlight wb is a bit too yellow. ...
  • re exposure with the SD15: as a generality, one needs to be more careful of highlights with the SD15, highlights tend to 'blow out' more easily than with other Sigma/Foveon cameras I've used. I'll ...
  • I'm not overly critical of H Bowman's posts, but I too noticed a change in tone. You cannot claim I'm overly "loyal" as I bought a Canon 5DII + many good lenses when the SD1 came out at the huge ...
  • My first Sigma DSLR was the SD10 (still have it but never use it). I also own SD9, SD14, SD15 DSLRs. My recommendation for a DSLR would be buy a SD15, lovely color, you can easily process to the ...
  • Didn't H. Bowman post that he intended to drop using Sigma? I don't have time to find the post right now, but I recall it rather distinctly. A guess on my part: self-justifying the decision? Sorry ...
  • Replied in DP3Q and DP1Q
    Yes, at the time of a trade show. Notice the name labels. Sigma typically does that for cameras on display, usually those in a display case. I'm eager for the DP3Quattro release, but I haven't read ...
  • I think the color difference between DP3M and DP2M is rather subtle, from what I've read and seen of comparison photos. I haven't shot the DP3Merrill personally. But the output looked a bit more ...
  • To get the best from the DP2Merrill you really need to shoot RAW. Post processing DP2Merrill RAWs for me is really rather simple in Sigma's software, Sigma Photo Pro (SPP). I truly think that a ...
  • I couldn't  download the RAW file either (PC), but I saw the JPEG. M first question would be what metering mode did you use? If evaluative metering, sure, 'hot' bright places on the flowers ...
  • Tom, I agree about the SD15 colors. My Hawaii photos especially are nice and rich in color. I think the SD15 'color' resembles the original DP2 (maybe DP1 but it's more magenta). I look back at ...
