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 wonder if I can use Pentax K or Olympus Zuiko lenses on the SD15. As these are very cheap now,thinking to get one for IR work,& don't want to invest in another mount if I can help it. If not possible, is there a very good 28-105(35mm FL ) or so Sigma lens that works well with the SD15 Thanks --LOVE LIFE & LAUGHTER

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, I have been using the SD15 for the past two years and it remains a very rewarding experience.  I have largely been immune to spec list jury about what is a good camera until now when I find that I am finically able to consider an SD1M. My dilemma is am I better buying a nice prime such as the 35mm F1:4 A or the 50 mm F1.4 and getting more out of my SD15. My interest in the sigma platform is with fine art and landscape. I would appreciate any views you are kind enough to offer. Kind regards

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...

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...
