Photographing some lace curtains and especially large metal grain bins I am getting Moire patterns with the DP2 Merrill. What do I do to get rid of it in processing, or at least reduce it? What do I change in shooting to eliminate or reduce it at the outset? The large metal grain bins are shiny steel and aluminum, 20 to 100 feet tall or so. Trying to get excellent low light, late evening. The patterns show up in print as well as on the computer screen. Use the Sigma conversion program to go...

Am finding I can't focus close enough for some of the images I would like to make. Anyone with experience in close up filters which work well on a DP2 Merrill without degrading the final image quality?

I'm planning on joining the Sigma family soon by purchasing a DP2M, but I was wondering what you Sigma users think about the Pentax K-1's pixel shift ability. Does anyone here have experience with both systems? The Pentax sounds like an amazing (!) system. It is an amazing amount of camera for the price, but I'm mostly interested in the pixel shift feature and how it compares to a merrill or quattro sensor.  --http://www.alanclaytonwilliams.com/pf.html

Dear Sigma friends, Whenever I develop raw files from my DP2 Merrill camera, the copyright field in the resulting file's exif shows 2012 and I then have to manually change it to 2016 using the windows explorer.  I'm using the latest SPP 6.3.2.  Does anyone know the reason behind this and how to solve the issue? Thanks, Dan

Hi all, I'd like to know for sure how much Memory capacity is supported in the DPM cameras. I recently bought a Sigma DP2M (same as I had before for a couple of years) and am interested in buying the largest SDXC Card possible. On the German Sigma Website they say 256 GB for both DPM and DPQ, but if someone has tested it with anything beyond that boundary, I would like to know. Why not just believe what they state? Well, on my Notebook Computer they state it supports up to 64 GB SDXC Cards,...

Still new to the DP2 Merrill and liking what I see. In shooting with the goal of B&W final image am I better off setting the camera for B&W or Color and converting/desaturating after the fact on the computer?

I am planning to buy a wireless flash trigger for my DP2M. I have found some cheap models from Yongno and other brands. But I just wanted to know whether the pins of wireless triggers are generic? That means any brand will work on any camera or they are specific to each camera brands, like Canon and Nikon? And any suggestions from those who have used wireless triggers on their Sigma cameras? My flash is EF-140DG.

Am new to the DP2Merrill and processing with the Sigma Photo Pro 6.3. Save as TIF files but can't figure out the normal Save As or the Save as DOUBLE SIZE. What is the upside or downside of the Double Size? Do I lose sharpness, quality, color intensity? Does it make a difference in printing the images? Have been searching her and online about it but apparently I don't know the terminology yet to get the information. Any help is appreciated. I do like how the image files look. Just want the...

Hi, I am abroad, alone with my DP2M having left the DP3M at home. I am about to buy some filters and would like to know what is the diameter of the DP3M lense (I am sure it is not the same as of the DP2M). Thanks in advance.

The new to me DP2 Merrill is working fine. Images look good. Will I see any benefit from a FAST SD card? Any benefit or downside to using larger SDXC cards? Any size limit? Am searching online but apparently am not wording it properly to get the information. The camera is nice. The images are telling me I will keep it. Went to specific locations to shoot some images I have done with other cameras so I get a good feel for what the camera will do compared to what I have been using. As I say -...
