Processing stuff just now I see that my DP3M has topped 3k exposures, my DP2M has about half that and DP1M only 300+.  This is in 10 months. I've been thinking about a DP3Q but maybe I'd be better advised to grab another DP3 and 2M while they're still available and cheap? Any thoughts about the life expectancy of the DPMs? --Joris1632

Hi there, this is my first post in this forum. I have been shooting for about one month with the Sigma DP2 Merrill and I am already in love with the camara, despite some limitations in handling. I am considering buying a viewfinder, as I believe that it could help me a lot with this fixed focal camara. Could someone suggest models and relate his/her experience with them? Among the comments that I have read in Amazon there is a hint of Voigtlander as exceptional viewfinders, but no mention of...

I had a relatively new Sigma EF-140 flash which stopped working recently. So while looking for a replacement, I came to know about new Metz Mecablitz 26 AF-1. I liked the compact design, which I think will be perfect for DP2M body. But when I checked Metz website, it mentions almost all other camera brands except Sigma. Does anyone know whether it will work on DP2M? Also, is this particular flash camera specific? That means, different specification for each camera brand?

I have a new Olympus EM-1, a retired E-1 and a Sigma DP1.  I can honestly say that most of my very best photos, not including action photos, have all been from the DP1.  Photo types were landscape, portrait, and florals.  Should I grab a DP2M while they are still available as retirement is around the corner and I hope to have even more time to photograph and maybe experiment with some B&W.  There are many good photographers in this group and I hope to hear from you. Thanks in advance for your...

Hi Sigma people, anyone got any idea of what has caused this Andy Warhol effect on some tulips ? It is a crop from a DP2M pic processed with the straight X3F settings. As you can see, the part with my mum's handbag is fine, just wondering whether there are other circumstances where I can expect unreal image effects. New to this camera and not sure whether I'm keeping it. Previously owned a DP1 where I was more than happy with processing all files in SPP auto setting as I have no skill at post...

I downloaded my new pics to the computer as so many times before, but there was an additional file on the SD card: "SUSERR" - filename OOOFPGA.csv with 2.38kb. I have not opened the file as I'm naturally suspicious of such things. I took it off the card and only copied it to my desktop unopened. I googled suserr and it brings up so many entries for Instagram - I have never had to do with Instagram, and am not a subscriber. I suspect the file name suserr could have to do with s*user...,...

Got me a E-M10 today, installed Olympus Viewer 3.0 to use as a RAW converter and had to realise this piece of software is sloooooooow. Sigma´s SPP which I use for developing my DP2 Merrill files (55MB file size) is fast compared to the  Oly Software. It takes about six to ten seconds until one can see the changes made to any parameter in the Oly converter. Thats about three times what the Sigma Software needs and that is known as slow, but it manages 50MB files. The Oly RAW files are just...

Finally got my DP2M and realized a problem with white letters on a red-magenta background, when doing PP in PSE after RAW conversion in SPP. Full Image is here : 46MPix / 8Bit JPEG why is there color bleeding in the text underneath the number 4 ?  It doesn´t show in SPP, but when working on the file in PSE the letters become light magenta. Anyone an idea how to avoid this effect ? Any suggestions appreciated. Thak you in advance, Rudi.

Thank you for taking your time to answer my questions. I would like to use my DP2 Merrill for indoor portraits with a Mola Beauty Dish. I know my camera's limitations. So, using the 30mm what color background should I use to get the maximum blow out ? Thank you

Hello peer,My Sigma DP2M command dial does not work when I use/turn it to change the aperture or shutter speed. If the aperture clicks to say 4 it goes back to 2.8, same thing happens with the shutter speed. Anyone have experienced the same problems?Thank you for your feedbackIqbalSigma DPM1, Sigma DPM2, Sigma DPM3, Fujifilm XE-2, Sony RX100 mk2, Ricoh GR, Fujinon XF 35,60,Samyang 8mm
