  • I'm not sure if you can see lens firmware versions from the Sigma cameras, but then I think most of the firmware updates have to do with NikonCanon compatibility so I'm not sure the dock matters ...
  • Sigmas said they are still working on it, so how is that "shelved".  It will just take some time to arrive. The Quattros and the DP cameras. Not sure if this means a longer SA production run or ...
  • Since the FP viewfinder is a rear LCD magnifier, it seems like you could use something like a Hoodman LCD magnifier as a similar replacement until the FP one ships: https://www.adorama.com/hnh32mb. ...
  • For the H, I really like the 14mm f1/.8 for a wide lens.  And also, for some reason the old 8-16mm seems to suit it well, though it's not as sharp as the 14mm. For a longer lens, the 100-400 is ...
  • I don't see any reason to be skeptical it will ever come, Sigma is still committed to the technology it sounds like to me, and they had a lot of people very interested in that full frame Foveon ...
  • I like the H more, since you have the option of shooting at H or Q resolutions depending on the lens and subject. Good idea to get a great camera now, and see what gets delivered down the line.
  • Do you have the GPU selected on your laptop, but not the new desktop (GPU settings)? That would be the main issue I could think of why it would be slower. Also make sure the "use extra memory" is ...
  • I also didn't think the DP1Q edges were that great - especially coming from the pre-Merill DP1 where the edges were really sharp. That's why I really loved the DP0Q, even a bit wider and really ...
  • Two items in the review seem wrong to me: 1) He says the battery is so small, he thinks the camera will have poor battery life - without actually testing that, yet it's listed as a negative point ...
  • I don't see how any lens, would prevent the flash from working.  I've used the flash units even with Pentax mount lenses I adapted to work on the camera. One other thought as to what is happening, ...
  • Replied in Why a non-pro?
    Why a non-pro?  If it's your only camera the tele lens will be pretty useful, which the non-pro does not have. If you are planning to shoot much video and leave it at 4K, you will very likely want ...
  • That's strange as I have an older 70mm, I think the flash works on it with the SDQH... your 70mm has a fairly large metal hood you can attach, right?
  • As with every release, each new OSX has some useful stuff in it. The reason why I've been moving to try and upgrade is, I want to be able to try using an iPad as an external desktop stylus device. ...
  • Halide supports enabling that if you wish - I think here they are saying they can do so still with manual control over some camera settings: https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/dnxsvt/halide_up ...
  • Happy Thanksgiving!  No photo here either, was too busy preparing food!
  • I like the image overall though the trees/nuildings on the right side of the image make the skyline loo a bit lumpy - would be nice I think if more regular, or building up to something larger also ...
  • Replied in Not worried
    Back when I shot film, although Fuji made some excellent high ISO film I didn't use it all the time. Sensors are a kind of film and Foveon still has a unique look to it... If you take into account ...
  • I did that first over many days, nothing worked, posted here, issue was resolved right after... Perhaps you missed that, even though I carefully laid out exactly that point. If nothing else I feel ...
  • Sorry to re-open this issue, but the original thread is locked, but I did want to provide closure for everyone - calling this morning has seemed to yield much better results. Now, the chargeback ...
  • Once again incorrect, I didn't say they were cheating me (purposefully), I said there was something wrong with the returns process at BH Photo in relation to their own bank/line of credit.  Pretty ...
