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 -...

Shooting a bit to check it out and can see the battery life is what all say - not anything to write home about. Have two batteries. What do I get to build the battery collection? Factory original - or an aftermarket product? Is one really better than another?

Have a DP2 Merrill coming and will find out a lot once it gets here and I put it on the tripod and try a few images. Now I save all my converted RAW work as TIF files. Is this a good way to go with the files from the Merrill? If not, is there a better format for saving that will give me the highest quality? On color, Adobe RGB OK? Mainly looking for the best image quality I can get from working carefully with the camera - much like I work with the View Cameras.  Have been searching on here...

In prints to 11x14 - what differences will I see from the DP2 compared to the DP2 Merrill? Don't own either. Am considering buying one after reading so much about the quality. Can live with slow and clumsy as most use would be on tripod - like my 5x7 gear. Just looking at actual image quality. Will I see much difference between these two at this print size?

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...
