Hi all, I was wondering if anyone figured out if the Merrill batteries can be charged in camera?I am going to take my DP2M on a trip and I also have a Anker Astro charger for my phone.Now, I am familiar with the setup where you can hookup the Anker with a Merrill camera and useit a a power source. I don't want to carry the Aker with me though, just want to charge the batteries.The Ricoh GR uses the same batteries as the Merrills and can only be charged in camera, however I have not found any...

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...

Camera: DP2M If I autofocus a scene and then switch the setting to manual focusing, will the AF focusing point be maintained? I am aksing this for the sake of making panoramas, not necessarily having to set the pivotal scene (e.g. the center of the pano) by hand.

Hello everyone, I need a flash trigger (10m cable or radio) that works both with my Canon and my Sigma gear (Canon dslr + 580ex, sigma dp2 merrill +500dg super). I already got a cable trigger (1m) that works with both in ttl mode. Unfortunately I can't seem to find one with a 10m cable that also allows ttl for both systems. Is there any 10m cable/radio trigger available that works in ttl with canon and sigma? I couldn't find any. If not I was considering the Yongnuo YN-622C for Canon....

Question for Merrill users about SPP Auto review. I have had a DP2 for years and thought I knew my way around SPP. Just unwrapped my new DP2M today and trying first shots (RAW). My setup in camera is -2 sharpness which shows when the image loads at X3F setting in SPP 5.5.3 (with "brighter fonts" mod): When I click on "Auto" after about 10 or more seconds the sharpness sets to 0.0 and the exposure adjusts. No other sliders move. I've now tried this with a few shots and in each case the...

I have read that the base ISO is 200, meaning that setting then ISO at 100 is equivalent to using a neutral density 1-stop filter, which one would only do if a slower shutter speed were desired. First of all, is this true, and how do we know? Second, is this what owners use as their basic good-light setting, 200? Third, can someone tell me what the base ISO for my DP1s is, given that it allows a setting of 50 for the lowest ISO? And finally, has anyone succeeded in seeing for themselves...

Can I put a grease by myself or should I ask sigma to fix this?

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...

I recently sold a DP2M. The buyer reports that the camera will sometimes write two files of the same shot. This never happened to me but I've seen it happen in a video he sent. Has anyone encountered this? If so, what was the cause and solution? --Michael S
