  • 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 ...
  • I'd go the sd Quattro as you get the EVF + focus magnification, better resolution LCD screen and focus peaking. If you did want the SD1M you can still get it and then use the AF micro-adjustment ...
  • Replied in DP2Q
    In general I believe Sigma would simply tell you to buy a sd Quattro. It has the EVF and IS depending on what lens you buy. I've always considered the dp Quattros as a the test camera for ...
  • People who are hesitant to get into Foveon sensors should buy a dp Quattro series camera. So, for less than $1000 they can test the Quattro sensor and SPP/DNG workflows. If they are happy with ...
  • I tend to use the camera that will best suit what I'm doing. Most of the time I'm using an iPhone for day to day use as convenience wise it beats most cameras for good quality panorama shots and ...
  • Hello, I'd be interested in purchasing the dp0, I'm currently in Australia however. Thanks, Philip
  • Ah right, forgot about that part, was thinking more of the mirror assembly. Thanks, Philip
  • Actually would this really matter given the SD Quattro doesn't have any significant moving parts (like a DSLR) that would potentially wear out? It would be nice to know but I'm not sure it would ...
  • Replied in New computer?
    Don't forget you will need to invest quality time getting all the parts working as well as replacement kexts which may/may not break if you update macOS. IMHO best to opt for Windows (on PC ...
  • Replied in New computer?
    You can still get the pre-TB3 MacBook Pro 15" new with 16 GiB of RAM and a 2.5/2.8 gHz QC i7 from Apple which has the SD card slot. They used to have the old 13" but they dropped it on the ...
  • The manual states 0C/32F to 40C/104F with humidity less than 85% which seems fairly standard. Obviously if you're using the camera a lot the heat builds up internally on the sensor and electronics ...
  • Replied in Expose
    I think Arg means paying less attention to the recommended +/- exposure meter in the camera in favour of using the histogram to work out the ideal exposure once initial settings have been chosen.
  • Replied in should I?
    More like 'dad rates'? Either way it's a good thing they're going to someone who is going to use them...
  • I found the Merrill does better on fine detail like fur and the micro-contrast appears to be better, but I haven't experimented yet with the Quattro files and forum recommendations for SPP. I've ...
  • How does it compare to your DP2 Quattro?
  • Was that self-rebuilt or done via the Sigma GV lens mount swap process?
  • Replied in DP2Q Bricked
    I've always been a bit dubious of Sigma not providing checksums for the firmware codes for quick confirmation, not sure if the camera has in-depth verification of the firmware before it updates ...
  • Second that. The 30mm isn't as good as the DP2Q or DP2M when it comes to CA and distortion in the corners but it's still a very good lens overall.
