Hi, I usually use my SD1 in manual mode. Say I change the shutter speed from 1/125 to 1/250 sec and take a picture. Then I turn the camera off. After a few minutes I turn it on again just to find the shutter speed set back to 1/125 sec. Does anyone know why this is happening?
Couple of questions on the SD1 1. Which RAW setting for Adobe capture is recommended in PP? I am using SPP and LR and PS for editing. 2. Is there a B and W RAW capture setting on the camera? If so I can' t seem to find it. I understand Firmware version 1.05 had this included. I have 1.09 installed on the camera. Thanks, Mike
I heard that you can shoot IR with the SD1 by removing a protective filter on the camera (without sending it to a shop) If that is true, does this apply to other Sigma cameras like the DP2s? My question reveals my ignorance about Sigma Cams. but I am curious to know if this is true.
Want to get a SD 14 or 15 for B&W IR work. IS there any difference between them for this use? I know the SD15 uses SD cards(which all my other cams use),but any other reasons to go for the SD15? Price is quite close on ebay it seems. AF is of no concern here Would be nice to use my Pentax & Zuiko glass somehow,without destroying the lenses..can the mounts on the SD be modified? the SD1 is about 2x the price & can see no real advantage,unless I missed something Thanks for any advice --LOVE...
Hi, A customer has a Nikon D3, while it's capable of some decent pictures they often require tweaking, esp. when using jpeg. We need to shoot a big amount of product pictures (denim), we would like to use jpeg mode as there are a lot of images and we would like to upload directly to the database. We've tried many settings with the D3 but colors are not great, pictures look ok but not when compared to the SD1 (which is mine, not the customer's camera) or the actual product. The SD1 seems to be...
Would it be realistic to use the SD15 or SD1 + long teles for birding? Is the AF & AF tracking fast enough? After getting hooked on DP3M,thinking of a SD 15 or SD1 body as IR is easy & practical, & wonder if it would also be good for birds? Or are the ISO limitations a big minus!!as now I use ISO 800-1600 with F4 teles. Thanks for any help --LOVE LIFE & LAUGHTER
Hello. I have a Sigma SD1 Merrill and I am trying to take Color Infrared pictures to obtain an effect which looks like the 590nm SuperColor filter effect from Lifepixel. With the internal dustfilter in place, I tried different settings for White balance (standard settings and also Grey, Magenta, Cyan, Yellow and green Grass). After removing the internal dust filter, I have used several external filters (yellow, red and IR) and combined these tests with Red and Blue colorswapping in...
