Hi Everyone: I feel a bit embarrassed asking a couple of beginner questions, but I am in India, and don't have a manual for the SD15, which I am using now. I am also using a 50mm f2.8 lens. The issue relates to the fact that my point & shoot camera would probably handle the conditions here better than my SD15. Or maybe it is my ignorance regarding appropriate settings and shooting strategies. So here it goes: 1. When I shoot outdoor scenes with extremes in contrast (shadow vs very brightly...
I by mistake took a SD-card from my 'old' SD15 and used it in my new SD15. Immediately the counter jumped from about 4000 to 8600. And i CANT get the right number back ........ What can i do? --/Henrik - Denmark(SD14 and 2 * SD15 ... and about 5 kg glass)
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 looking to get a little more in depth from an equipment standpoint when it comes to macro photography. I was wondering if anyone had experience with a digital rail and Sigma cameras, or a tethered auto focus bracketing software with Sigma cameras. I'll be picking up Helicon Focus soon (or at least trying it out) to use for focus stacking shots, and now I'm thinking about the best way to capture images. Helicon has a software called "Remote" by which you tether your camera to a...
As I already told, I'm back to Sigma and its unsurpassed colour rendition and Foveon sensor, my last camera had been an SD15, after a SD14, after... In the past, there was always a highly discussed recommended "basic setup" for a SD camera, not at last in order to overcome the one or the other weakness, or some "trick" to do so. I remember for my SD15 that is was a good idea to set the exposure compensation always to -0.7 in order to avoid highlight clipping, to set the colour mode to...
I have a Sigma SD14, but I'm going to be getting an SD1. They both use the same batteries, so I'm going to get a couple of new batteries now. I have a couple of old Chinese garbage brand batteries, and they don't work very well. They don't last long, and the SD14 does weird stuff when they start to get low on power. I don't think I want to get any of those $12 specials from China, even though they claim to be 1,750 mAh batteries, vs. the 1,500 mAh of my Sigma battery. A friend of mine told me...
Hello. I'm interested in buying Triggertrap dongle for my Sigma SD14 camera. http://shop.triggertrap.com/products/triggertrap-mobile-dongle-md-e3-for-canon I checked on their web site for compatibility but it says there that it is compatible with Sigma SD15 but not with Sigma SD14. Does any of you have, had or know any info about this device in combination with Sigma SD14? Is there difference with cable connection between these two cameras? Why is SD15 compatible and SD14 not? Please advice...
Hi Everyone: After buying my printer, I was really enthusiastic about using Hahnemuhle's Bamboo paper. It has a very special feel to it. But now I am realizing it has some disadvantages. I am printing macros at 10x15 on the 3880, mostly close-ups of insects taken with the SD15 and Sigma's 105mm macro lens. The images are actually quite good and most are quite colorful. The problem with the matte bamboo paper, is that the images have a slightly duller feel about them, and also, because of the...
With all the advances in technology in both hardware and software I am interested to hear the views of those with a greater knowledge than I on how old gear and current technologies stack up together and an assessment of actual advancement on both fronts. I offer a couple of images, the source image, and a crop from that image doctored up. This shot was made on an SD15 fitted with a 50+ year old Tamron, model 680, 135mm f2.8, hand held at a range of approx. 30 metres. No photographic merit...
