I have a DP3 Merrill that I have been getting used to for a while now.  But I want to start processing raw images.  I downloaded Sigma 6.3 Photo Pro.  Is this the proper software for Merrills.  I recall there was previous software version 5 point something which is no longer on the site.  Is the 6.3 version an improvement for processing raw Merrill images ?  I'd appreciate if someone would comment on this.  Thanks.

What is the cause of banding in a DP3m shot? Is it just the camera's inability to deal with higher ISO shots? I hoped that converting to B&W would remove noise issues. This is a cropped version of a test shot with my new DP3m and the banding is very bad in the background (particularly upper half of the frame) --Kind Regards,Rich------------------------------------------------------http://www.blinkimage.com

My converter arrived today, some quick results of DP3M with and without ;- only minimum basic processing:-  FT-1201 left  With FT 3M  Converter right  3M   I'm very happy with these first shots, no immediately discernible difference in colour or sharpness  and no distortion. BUT. . .  The converter is quite heavy and the DP3M feels unbalanced, I'm a bit afraid of strain on the base plate/tripod mount and suspect the Quattro for which it was designed may be better reinforced. Typically...

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

Does anyone have personal experience of the FT-1201 on the DP3M? I'd planned to buy a DP3Q, mainly for the focal length with the converter. Last weekend I had the chance to use a Q (without converter) for an hour or so. The output is impressive but to be honest I like my M a lot and don't feel the difference is really worth the cost. I'm undecided because +/- 90mm has always been my favourite.  Joris1632

Does anyone has the +3 and +5 version of the marumi DHG 200 achromat and can share some comparing pictures? I am thinking about getting one and would like to know which of these is best suited for the DP3 Merrill. Meanwhile i have to crop:

Would it be realistic to use the SD15 or SD1 + long teles for birding? Is the AF & AF tracking fast enough? After getting hooked on DP3M,thinking of a SD 15 or SD1 body as IR is easy & practical, & wonder if it would also be good for birds? Or are the ISO limitations a big minus!!as now I use ISO 800-1600 with F4 teles. Thanks for any help --LOVE LIFE & LAUGHTER

Hi just got the Sigma AC adapter & plan to use my USB battery pack with it.I see the Sigma outputs 4.5v, and all my USB batteries are 5v at different Ampere... will I hurt the camera by using 5v instead of 4,5?  or do I need to put something inline to reduce the volts?  .5v can't make so much difference--or Thanks --LOVE LIFE & LAUGHTER

Since the price drops on the Merrills are so tempting,thinking of getting one..either DP3 or Quattro what if any advantage is there with the Quattro? and can the DP3 Merrill be used handheld? have read tripod is really needed.. my main use will be nature,landscape & product shots,probably mostly in B&W,as miss doing film B&W.Have read Sigma is great for that and maybe if I like the DP3, I get a DP1 as well? or Quattro know the limitations of these..no BIF ;) etc.. no ISO over 100... and can I...
