Wish they'd make it as an Android app so you could tether your camera to your tablet for raw editing.

8 of 10 and yes, it's mostly about shadows. But what is "manipulation" anyway? Your brain will let you see what's in the shadows if you were there in person, adjusting highlights/shadows to improve the result is way different from adding something that wasn't there or removing something you don't want to see.

What about all the HDR pics from smartphones, are they "fake"? Using a flash to light up shadows is better than doing it in post?
What about black and white digital?

ChristianHass: The Sigma DP Quattros can with the newest firmware shoot DNG files instead of X3F RAW files removing one of your "Don't likes".

All four DP Quattro models, with the newest firmware 2.01, support both DNG format and the SFD shooting option.

In reply to:

meanwhile: Have they said whether DNG support is coming to older cameras or not?

DNG support should be out in a new firmware for the SD Quattro (the non-H version). No news on other cameras, my guess is that the dp Quattros might get it, and the older cameras won't.

When will we see a DPReview review of the sd Quattro?

JJoao: Hi, I recently bought a Panasonic GX80 / GX85. I’m experiencing some chromatic aberrations, noise or moiré, on black objects like metallic grilles, black plastics with texture and padded black parts of camera backpacks, both with natural or artificial light. I can see it very clearly when I zoom in the photo and sometimes no zoom in even needed. It gets worse at ISO around 1600 or 3200. I had before Olympus E-M5 II and E-M1 cameras, and never noticed this problem. Is anyone having the same problems? I updated the firmware to the latest version, and can´t find any proper regulation setting in the menu list that could help me to solve the problem. Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Moire is something you have to live with when you use a camera without an AA filter. The benefit is sharper images, but sometimes you get moire and you have to clean it up with post processing.

At least liking actually promotes awareness to your own network. So it does have a potential benefit.

Having the exif info at the bottom of each shot makes it blatantly obvious which camera took which picture if the lens, iso range or other differs between the two.

stuntmonkey: Not sure who it will do in this increasingly crowded market space, but that's some striking product design right there. Put this side by side with the classic F-31d and it's like the cameras came from two different companies.

Not sure why you mention the lack of filter mount for the RX100, this camera doesn't have a filter mount either.

In reply to:

nawknai: Am I mistaken if I say that this D600 appears to be a D800, but with a 24 MP sensor and a semi-plastic body? If so, then this is a great deal.

I expect the AF to be slightly worse as well, but that the differences will not show themselves in most shooting situations.

You could call it a D800 with a different body, a different sensor, a different AF module etc etc.

It's more fitting to call it a D7000 with a fullframe sensor.

Amazing. $2100 is £1300 with the current conversion rate, so the £1955 UK price is "only" a 50% markup for Europe. Good job.
I know sales tax is part of it, but 50% is ridiculous.

In reply to:

mosc: Is anybody else struck by the similarities in light gathering between the RX-100's f4.9 equivalent and the DP1m's f4.2 at 28mm? Except one is physically much smaller, zooms, costs less, etc. I doubt the sensor is better in the Sigma at ISO 1600+ either. Doubt we'll see a multi-shot-and-merged low light mode. In low light, it's out done by a cheaper ZOOM!

Sure, but at low ISO the RX100 isn't even anywhere close.
That's what the DP2M is made for.

In reply to:

Jan Kritzinger: I really am very interested in a fixed lens, large sensor compact, but I doubt Sigma have the capability to offer AF functionality comparable to that offered by Sony.

If this camera were made by Sony, and if it were 23/24mm, and if it had all the modern Sony features (Hybrid AF, focus peaking, etc etc etc) then I'd definitely be interested.

A fixed lens, 35mm equivalent RX100 would be just perfect.

Comparing this to the RX100 isn't really valid. The DP2M is for extremely high quality shots in low ISO. The RX100 is a do-it-all camera you can put in your pocket of decent quality.

iudex: And one more issue with Sigmas was the (in)ability to process RAWs in usual RAW converters. Is it still a problem?

Most of their cameras are supported in Lightroom now, not the new DP2M and DP1M though. Anyone's guess when/if they will be.

In reply to:

Photoworks: Will the DP1M be super slow like the DP2M or will it have an improved processor?

No reason to think they would change the processor so soon. It's never going to be an action camera, but the DP series never was.

qwertyasdf: The 5.0 MP pic is tac sharp! I can even see the guys hair sticking out his nostril!

I guess we have very different definitions of "tac sharp".
It's not bad for a camera phone though, especially at ISO800.
