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...

I always shoot as X3F with my DP1m. My recent workflow was to batch convert all pictures to 16bit tif files in SPP and then import these into my Lightroom catalog. I've then done various enhancements within Lightroom. However, Lightroom seems to still be seeing them as Tif files (it didn't convert them to DGN files while I imported for some reason). Now, when I open up these edited tif files in Photoshop, it only sees the un-edited versions. How do I do this properly? --Kind...

I just got my DP1M! I took it for a tiny spin and already have 2 questions: 1. Heat:After about 5 minutes the camera heats up quite a bit. I can't measure it, but it is definitely more than 35°C. Is that normal? Does it mean, I have to switch it off every 3 minutes?I save RAW+JPEG, is this relevant? 2. SPP:Is there a possibility to process a stack of RAWs with the same setting? Thanks for your help. Peter

I used to have the first Sigma DP1. I loved looking at the images on the screen coming from that camera. It was so sharp, every pixel adding details to the scene. When the Merrills were released, the price was quite prohibitive, and so I didn't even consider any of them, and kept on using my MFT gear quite happily. Recently, I discovered that the prices of the Sigma DP Merrills have become not only cheap, but dirt cheap, when you consider the fact that just buying an equivalent lens would set...

Hi there, I use the hyperfocal distance to maximise depth of field on a number of different cameras, for both street and landscape shots, and normally get very good results. I've noticed with the DP1m however that infinity and distant objects are more blurred than i would expect. This is still the case when shooting on a steady tripod. There are two obvious possible conclusions: (1) I am using the wrong distance. From the Dofmaster online calculator I get a distance of 2.28m at an aperture of...

I own a Ricoh GR and a DP2M. Love both of them, GR's IQ is very good, DP2M really is one step ahead. Now I'm selling one or two Olympus lenses, as I don't need them anymore - which gives me some money to "invest". Oddly enough I think about complementing the Ricoh GR with a DP1M (not replacing, as I'm well aware of the GR's advantages as a more versatile camera). Now my question: Does anybody own a Ricoh GR and the DP1M and says "Yes, go ahead, it's worth it."? Or are these just some...

Is it possible to have the display magnify when you rotate the focus ring on the DP1m when in MF mode? Is it possible to have it on MF, but press a button to have it snap to focus (and a small, centre point)? --Kind Regards,Rich------------------------------------------------------http://www.blinkimage.com

Hello, This morning I was out shooting and flipped through my display options to active the histogram which is usually on. While I was shooting I noted I had both histogram and over exposure blinkies (live view) AT THE SAME TIME, which is my preference.  I didn't know the DP1M would do this as my settings discovery disappointed me in this regard.  I was so excited I sat down to figure out what I didn't know only to discover I was unable to replicate this setting.  Switching though the display...
