  • Worth having a look here as they have tested the SD cards for actual write speeds which of course is separate from the read speed, so some manufacturers have been playing games with the figures. Fo ...
  • I got the same response as I had sent an enquiry separately as well. (I guess that means I'll just use the Dock for firmware updates and in-lens settings and leave micro focus adjustments for my ...
  • As mentioned the Yongnuo RF-603C II series triggers (Canon model) will work with your DP2 Quattro. Simply put one in the flash hot shoe then one on the flash, so if it supports manual flash ...
  • Thanks will have to give this a go sometime, been meaning to try out the micro focus adjustments for a while now.
  • You probably want to avoid that as you would probably trigger the CD focus if you keep it down to get zoom mode working. So you would want to initiate PD focus, cancel quickly after the initial ...
  • If I'm capturing White Balance I typically use a ColorRight to capture the white balance through the ColorRight (like an ExpoDisc) if I'm noticing the White Balance is way off. The one I have also ...
  • I do actually have the 30mm + Dock (and SDQ) but haven't had time to test it out lacking a suitable target, I'm not entirely sure it would make a massive difference unless the CD has a cutoff ...
  • The SDQ has Phase and Contrast detect focus. It feels like it uses PD to initially focus and then use CD to fine adjust focus. However having said that it does feel like the DPQ's focus more ...
  • No. Sigma only uses SA-STTL for TTL, the other flashes use their respective manufacturer's flash protocol (EO-TTL, NA-TTL, etc), so you need a matching protocol flash for TTL to work. (They may ...
  • I've used the EF-140s, it works fine as a small lightweight flash for the DP series with TTL. If you are just doing basic photography and don't mind not having swivel/tilt or diffusers (unless you ...
  • Good point, it's one of those gotchas with laptops and small computers - Core i7 != 4+ Cores all the time and Core i5 != no Hyperthreading so one has to check the specifications carefully.
  • That would be pretty costly as if the pro's don't know what's entirely wrong with it you are taking a pretty expensive risk replacing any parts if you are not certain it will resolve the issue. ...
  • Unfortunately not available yet on Amazon AU. I guess Better Batt is the preference for Australia readers for now (thanks for the heads up everyone!)
  • Any suggestions for bypassing shipping restrictions into Australia? Amazon (US/UK) and other vendors seem to be fairly strict* about not shipping batteries overseas when I checked just now. I ...
  • The issue the way I saw after a quick read was that it was one person modified the creator's image. The creator then replied that it wasn't an accurate use of the image to demonstrate the point ...
  • You should check eBay for manufacturer/mount as Sigma however even then a lot of them are mislabelled so you need to ignore the lenses for other camera brands. Sample eBay search here . Usually ...
  • I've heard Cactus with the V6 II can convert Sigma SA-TTL to other systems so worth having a look here: https://www.cactus-image.com/special/X-TTL/ I've used the Yongnuo RF-603C II's fine with the ...
  • My favourite is the DP2M for taking pictures of my cat. It seems to be able to handle the fur better than the Quattro from the quick tests I did or for when I require finer ...
  • Well, you can always use Linear DNG tools or Kalpanika to do post-processing conversion from the sd Quattro (or other cameras). The sd Quattro can save in Linear DNG so it would be a matter of ...
  • Replied in DP2Q
    IMHO I'm not that upset about the EVF/Live View. Since I wear glasses EVF/OVF is of limited utility to me since the dioptre adjustments never get close to what I require. Rear view LCD or EVF with ...
