Hi I have a Nikon D5300 which I use for street photography. I would also like to do some very ART style city scapes / streetscapes in an art print fashion. I have read about and seen examples of the Foveon sensors amazing almost med / large format 3-d like picture quality, tonal gradations and colour rendition etc and am quite excited that the SD1 Merrill paired with my Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens might be an affordable option for me to get that medium format look - at low ISO and in...

Hi Everyone: I have been using the Sigma DC 17-70mm 1:2.8-4.5 zoom for several years now. I have an SD15. I recently had the opportunity to shoot a gypsy encampment in India. If I can't print my images sharply at 11X17 I don't consider an image successful. I know it is silly, but that is my craziness. In order to get that level of sharpness, I had to push the images a bit in post-processing. The pictures were taken at ISO400 and all were in the shade. Although I am fairly happy with the...

I am looking to try my hand out with a Leica lens on my Nikon and Sigma cameras. I was wondering if you could make a recommendation for a 35-50mm lens I could use on Nikon Mount cameras. I have a Sigma SD1M with a Nikon mount and a D810.  Suggestions? Obviously I will be modifying this lens with a Nikon mount, so I don't want to break the bank.

I recently purchased a new 35mm f1.4 'ART' lens and had to use the in camera fine tuning function due to a front focusing issue.  +8 was the amount and now the lens focuses perfectly, the only problem is that all my other lenses don't need any fine tuning so when the camera function is turned on for the 35 and I change to a lens that doesn't need it the function automatically turns off so every time I want to use the 35 I have to go into the menu again and turn the function back on, the...

I checked my recent threads with pictures posted here and found that - when you hover the mouse over the image to display basic EXIF, it OFTEN shows the WRONG time zone because DPR uses the default GMT. This is apparently because (at least) the SD1M cannot set a recognisable Time Zone. For the picture of the Sun in this thread, the EXIF (shown when hovering) says "11:50:35 GMT". It was actually GMT +10. So now what? at :| m 14.

I have been using my Sigma SD1 Merrill without the dust shield to take Infrared photos using  720nm and 760nm filters. For a while everything was fine when I opened the X3F files and saved as TIFF. They looked like the JPEGs, but I use those for preview, and keep them low rez while I have the X3F-RAW at full rez to work on. A few months ago, things went suddenly south. The X3F files would save, but they were way off -- far too light and actually losing detail... there was information...

When I briefly owned an SD1M I only used my old 4GB CF cards which were slow and filled up fairly quickly. I believe having read that faster CF cards do not yield a lot extra performance above a certain threshold. Any info on that highly appreciated as well. QUESTION: What is the biggest CF card that the SD1M supports - 32GB, 64GB...? I am aware of the risk with bigger cards but have never had any problems with 32GB cards on the DPxMs. Thanks in advance Xpanded

Please accept my apologies if already answered, but I have not been able to find anything about the AFability on the SDM1 of this new version (but a bit about the non-Art version). After the latest release of SPP has made my x3f-development platform stable, I am considering re-buying the SD1M. I prefer the OVF, so a possible EVIL version is currently of no interest to me. The reviews I have found about the Sigma 30mm f:1.4 Art (on CaNikon bodies) are quite positive and the focal length is...
