I've been shooting with a new Sigma DP2M and I've got an unusual problem: whenever I power down and power back up, the camera returns into a setting which I gave it some time ago (B+W, 400ASA, etc.), different from the current setting when it was powered off.  In other words, it forgets my current settings and goes back to this other setting. Unfortunately, this appears to be a new behavior, not the way it was working when I first got it. I've been shooting with the Merrill cameras for a...

I bought a DP2 Merrill last week.  I've always been intrigued by this camera since it was launched, but couldn't justify full price given the drawbacks of the camera.  However, given the low price of the DP2M now, curiosity got the better of me and I bought one. Wow! I'm still learning this camera, but the more I use it, the more I like it. I'd now like to get a DP3M, and possibly a DP1M as well.  Does anybody know of any camera stores that still has new stock of these?  UK or EU to avoid...

I recently purchased a DP2M.  The image quality is impressive.  As a result, I thinking of getting the DP1M and DP3M and using them for all my photography.  Is anyone using these three cameras exclusively?  If so, what has been your experience?

I have been reading lately about the black & white capabilities of the Sigma DP2M. Or, more specifically, of Sigma Photo Pro. I am wondering about the following: all pictures that I've tried so far to convert into BW, have a 'non-smooth' (what's the word here:)?) histogram in the shadow areas. For example, coverting the following color picture with SPP 6.3.0: results in the following smooth histogram, when viewed in IrfanView: Now, if I use either the 'Monochrome' mode in SPP, or just...

Hi mates, I'm currently a DP2m user as well as a Fuji X system user. I've been shooting pictures for over 1 year with different lenses but never tried shooting with a flash:-(. Therefore, I sincerely want to have some advice on flashes from you and any contribution will be appreciated;-). Well, based on the search in this forum and other websites, I had these following ideas in my mind: 1. Metz 20 C-2, which had been recommended by a lot of people in this forum. However it's not cheap in my...

Hi, I have already asked Sigma in Australia, but never get a response from them. I'd like to know if it's possible to just purchase the dummy battery (DC Connector CN-11) withouth the power adaptor (SAC-5), and if so, where please? It would be handy on a longer trip to connect it to a USB power bank - via a StarTech cable USB2TypeH 5V DC power - and save the 'precious' regular battery power wherever possible. Don't have a need to use the SAC-5 indoors at all, so am wondering if someone knows...

PP6 refuses to 'respond' when I try to open it. I tried with 2 older copies, and then downloaded the newest 6.3 but it would open either. I am using a MacBook Pro running 10.9.5. PP6 used to open but not any more. And ideas? And if I can get PP6 to run, is there any other software that will open the DP2 Merrill raw files? LR5 won't. Any help would be much appreciated. --Rube

I am using  Windows XP and SPP 5 to process my DP!x raw photos. This works but is a bit slow. With my "new" DP2m it seems the Merrill files are just too large, the computer either hangs up or takes forever. I was surprised to find that the (free) FastStone browser and editor handles the large X3F files just fine. Has anybody else tried/tested this software?
