Re: what a pity, DP2q doesn't have video output, so there will be no EVF for quattro

I test DP2 quattro yesterday, it seems quattro give up al video function, even video output for TV reviewing the picture.

So, this EVF doesn't support quattro series.

I asked the Sigma guys, hope they have some good news. I mean the video output can be set by upgrading the firmware. Hope so.

I tried to play around to see if I can get some 'tethering'/preview type thing working - and sadly when the Quattro recognises an usb lead plugged in, the screen flashes 'Now Connecting...' and the camera becomes 'in active' i.e. you can't take photos until the lead is unplugged...grrrr so frustrating.

I'm wondering whether the software/firmware can be update so you can at least continue using the camera.Then if the computer software (SPP) could be updated to load the photos as you take them - woooooaaarggghhhh Tethering

Something similar for external LCDs/viewers, EVFs etc. would be so useful.

If anyone is interested in tethering then at the moment I'm able to get some kind of tethering using a wifi card (ezShare) and my iPad with ShutterSnitch - it's a bit slow but workable.
