  • Great shot Lea, hope you all have a wonderful trip - "Gut Licht" as we say in Germany ;-) ... Catch-up soon :-) Cheers, Mark (&Ines)
  • Thanks, and I think the answers you already have here from TN Args and Richard pretty much nail it. If you control the noise you can get at and exploit (if you want) all of the detail. I kind of ...

  • Hi Lea, thanks, certainly for many occasion the 'Go-To' mode (especially since you can nearly always extract a good X3F file if the X3I goes all 'pear-shaped') ... I don't believe your wonderful ...
  • Hi Scott, thanks for the heads-up, I'll take a look at the website ... :-) Cheers, Mark
  • Hi, during processing in SPP the Detail setting was set to between 5-7 (7 being full right) with no noise reduction. They have, of course, been pushed/pulled quite hard in Camera Raw and Photoshop ...
  • Hi Kendall, Thanks, and yes, i know, had me for a while as well. Unfortunately nothing I can do about it - comes with the viewer.  I'll give the feedback to Prodibi and put a sentence into the text ...
  • Created discussion thread Article: SIGMA SFD-MODE

  • Hi Eddy, I posted the answer under the video but in case you find it quicker here: It doesn't actually matter whether you shot in colour or BW the RAW file is absolutely identical. The only ...
  • Thanks Mike, I appreciate you taking the time to look - Glad you liked them - Its always interesting to see which shot(s) people like best ... Cheers, Mark
  • Its been a long weekend but my images are finally loaded ... http://www.blauvista.com/html/hawaii/ http://www.markjamesford.photography SIGMA sd Quattro H / SIGMA 150-600mm Sports Cheers, Mark
  • Hi, waves are always a problem since on the whole they represent 'straight' lines and in the panorama you introduce a spherical distortion. For a long time I always insisted that 'hand-stitched' ...
  • Replied in Video ...
    Hi Mick, I hope the fifth video here might be of some help: http://www.sigma-imaging-uk.com/sigmalounge/raw-development-with-sigma-photo-pro/ It deals with processing X3I files (and BW Images) ... ...
  • Originally commissioned by SIGMA Deutschland, the five short videos that make up this introductory guide have now been redone in English and posted here by SIGMA UK: http://www.sigma-imaging-uk.com ...
