Want to get a SD 14 or 15 for B&W IR work. IS there any difference between them for this use?   I know the SD15 uses SD cards(which all my other cams use),but any other reasons to go for the SD15? Price is quite close on ebay it seems. AF is of no concern here Would be nice to use my Pentax & Zuiko glass somehow,without destroying the lenses..can the mounts on the SD be modified? the SD1 is about 2x the price & can see no real advantage,unless I missed something Thanks for any advice --LOVE...

Hi, A customer has a Nikon D3, while it's capable of some decent pictures they often require tweaking, esp. when using jpeg. We need to shoot a big amount of product pictures (denim), we would like to use jpeg mode as there are a lot of images and we would like to upload directly to the database. We've tried many settings with the D3 but colors are not great, pictures look ok but not when compared to the SD1 (which is mine, not the customer's camera) or the actual product. The SD1 seems to be...

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

Happy New Year everyone! I am trying to make my mind up whether to buy the SD1 or the DP2 and DP3. Originally I thought SD1 then I began to wonder ... I'm still pondering! Any thought about the relative merits of both choices would be most welcome...

Hello. I have a Sigma SD1 Merrill and I am trying to take Color Infrared pictures to obtain an effect which looks like the 590nm SuperColor filter effect from Lifepixel. With the internal dustfilter in place, I tried different settings for White balance (standard settings and also Grey, Magenta, Cyan, Yellow and green Grass). After removing the internal dust filter, I have used several external filters (yellow, red and IR) and combined these tests with Red and Blue colorswapping in...

I guess I'll be straight to the point, I've had powershot sd1200 for a few years now as my first camera and it has been loyal and served me well, but I've decided it's finally time to pull the trigger and get a more serious piece of hardware. My budget is around 300, with a little wiggle room, and I have ingested more articles, reviews and threads in the last week or so than I can recall, and feel like I'm only getting father away from have a solid choice. I had initially decided on a Nikon...

Hi there, I use the hyperfocal distance to maximise depth of field on a number of different cameras, for both street and landscape shots, and normally get very good results. I've noticed with the DP1m however that infinity and distant objects are more blurred than i would expect. This is still the case when shooting on a steady tripod. There are two obvious possible conclusions: (1) I am using the wrong distance. From the Dofmaster online calculator I get a distance of 2.28m at an aperture of...

Hi, I went out with my sd-1 with my new-old 14mm lens to find out how the bug-eyed works. I was a bit confused after finding greenish coloration particularly on the edges of frame. Not in all photos but mostly in those taken on shore partly covered by ice. Weather was light cloudy. After playing with SPP I find out that it was easy to remove the coloration with Fringe Correction of SPP. Still wondering where it comes from? Is the lens somehow incompatible with sd1? Is there something wrong...

Can anyone provide an overview of what focus screen options are available to fit the SD15 ? Is the focus screen the same dimension as the SD1, are they interchangeable ? I am interested in split screen focussing and curious as to whether there are any down sides compared to the SD15's existing set up ?  First hand experience etc. Thanks in advance. Cheers.

I've been busy moving to a new area and then with family medical issues for the past year or so and haven't been here much. Things appear to be settling down somewhat so I'm hoping to visit more. I have moved from Yukon to Vancouver Island following retirement and am enjoying the warmer weather and not having to be shoveling snow constantly. I have a question. What is the current consensus on the SD1 M and DP M series when it comes to ISO up to 1600? I remember some discussion from all those...
