  • I got a laptop with that chipset and use the Quattro. However, my older desktop is a better machine (graphics card, SSD, more powerful, more memory). Honestly, I would wait for intel to fix the ...
  • Try installing uninstalling all versions and reinstall again. Also, check your task manager and see what it is doing. Look at the hard drive sustain rate. It's under the performance tab. My guess. ...
  • I second this advice. It is good advice. I do software and networking. Over time, even older products and code get side benefits of optimization. Under deadlines, you code inefficient yet simple ...
  • hahaha Sigma prides itself on running a lean company. Read past articles. Your logic would have them expand out. Pretty soon it would look like GM with a thousand different model cars all about the ...
  • I think there was a patent for a sensor with video not too long ago, so we might see that. I think it probably will use larger pixel sizes. They'd have to reduce the sheer amount of data being ...
  • I agree. I've always thought of Sigma sensors and cameras as the view cameras of the digital age. No frills. No convenience. No tricks. Just high image quality. Everything else is secondary. Tilt ...
  • Merrill images avoid the painterly look, mushy background. Because it isn't interpolating, those faraway images with few pixels still look good. When you use Bayer and have fewer and fewer pixels ...
  • Using an external monitor hookup. Also have a section on what do to when things fail. Camera probs, corrupted files etc. In general, explaining what the camera is and having the right ...
  • It really seems to vary with the shot, what the image is and how the colors came out. Sometimes they seem muddy and washed out and no amount of processing looks good. Come to think of it, most of ...
  • Sigma CEO, who is regarded as the most open and honest man in the entire camera business once explained in depth how the Quattro architecture operates. In reading that rather technical article, at ...
  • There's lots of things to cover. Maybe Using multi-exposure modes in software and also SFD. Thinking photoacute. How about ideas and tips for using filters, which can help greatly when using high ...
  • In landscape photos, your subject is far away. This means that there will be less solid colors, like a face. The color will be constantly changing as per foliage and grasses, etc. Bayer doesn't ...
  • My guess is it's magenta hues and blotches only processed lighter to look pink. I would try using SPP to reduce them using the magenta tool. Also try different white balance and color profiles, ...
  • I'd say given the subject, if anything I would want to go for a slightly softer look, with less saturated colors. For flowers sharpness is the opposite of what I think of. The color in the pedals ...
  • Canon stated this sensor was for industrial use and security cameras. They had no plans to release it to the public as a consumer camera, either now or in the foreseeable future. I saw some of the ...
  • I have similar experience. With Merill it would search a lot. With Quattro it would focus much better. I enjoy the better color with the Quattro. If you really want the microcontrast it is there, ...
  • With the amount of processing work I do with film scans, fixing Sigma blemishes is a joy. Seriously, it's easy to fix the small issues that come up and doesn't take much time---unlike removing ...
  • I have one of those. Having used all kinds of scanners it is surprising how much difference the scanner impacts the quality of the image. Try shipping off a single image to be drum scanned by a ...
  • What do you use to scan the film?? That'll make a difference.
  • http://www.sigma-dp.com/DP2s/jp/photopro.html It's in japanese but there's a link to windows version.
