At some point in the past I switched an SD card and then upon putting the original back (with continuous numbering in effect) it created a new 105SIGMA folder numbering from 0001 (instead of placing the new picture in the original 100SIGMA folder, incrementing to the next number) Note that I had the latest firmware since 6/15/2013. Today I backed up and deleted all the files on the SD card, deleted the 105SIGMA folder and copied the latest picture files that I named DP1M3501.X3F and...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am having some strange issue with DP2Q and Sigma PP 6.0.6. Normally with my DP1 Merrill, I either process raw photos a little in SPP 6.0.6 before saving it as a TIFF and do the rest on lightroom or just export to TIFF before lightroom. It always works well and I never had any issues. I am trying the same with the DP2 Quattro and regardless of whether I process it or not in SPP, If I import the TIFF file in lightroom to process, the color looks blotchy and...

Hi all !I currently have trouble finding a good lens for my Nex6 when it comes to landscapes. I find the results quite unsharp with the 20mm lens I have right now, and I'm not sure the Sigma 19mm would give far better results on my camera.I've been considering buying the Zeiss 24mmf1.8, since it's said to be much sharper. Of course, the angle of view is different, but still, I would accommodate quite easily I think.However, I've just stumbled upon the Sigma DPM forum, and I feel like the...

I'd like a small (i.e. pocketable) flash, preferably using AA batteries that would work well (manual mode is OK) with the DP1M. Power is not too much of a concern. I'd probably use it mostly as a fill-in flash for subjects fairly close up (10ft or less). Thanks. --Nick (http://savoiu.zenfolio.com/)

Hello everyone, I am a proud owner of a Sigma DP1 Merrill camera, and have been very happy with it. It can take some really nice picture, when the light is ideal. I use my full frame cameras and the detail and color of Sigma still impresses me. So much so that I was thinking of getting the SD1 Merrill camera and maybe get a Sigma 24-105mm lens for it so it can be more flexible as sometimes the fixed 28mm of DP1M is not enough. What I wanted to know is if there is any differences between SD1...

Hello everyone, I was wondering if I should apply a screen protector on my DP1 Merrill. Looking at Amazon, nothing I can find that has some good reviews. So I was wondering if anyone is using any screen protector, and if you are, I would like to hear about your experience and recommendations. Also I would like to know if the Sigma LH1-01 lens hood is a recommended buy for DP1. Is it just for protection, or does it also help with flare? Many thanks everyone, much...

I have a secret longing for an extreme wide-angle compact that would allow me to take fewer exposures when shooting panoramas. Of the available options, the DP1M is closest to what I'm looking for. Not having owned any previous DP camera, I have a few questions. Some reviewers have mentioned lack of edge sharpness, which could be exacerbated by distortion correction. How much of a problem is this, aesthetically, when stitching panoramas? The intention is to have them look good at, or close...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am interested in buying a Sigma DP1 Merrill, as 28mm focal length would be more useful for me than DP2M. But I have read many times that the DP1M lens is not as good as the other ones or is soft. Is this true? How soft is it compared to DP2M or DP3M? None of my friends or photographers I know uses Sigma DP cameras, so this is my only place to ask about it. Those of you who has DP1M or maybe both DP1M and DP2M, could you please share your experience and/or...
