PCummins' recent activity

  • I've used the Yonguo RF-603 II-C[anon] wireless triggers fine with a DP2M/DP2Q to a Yongnuo YN-560-III (manual flash, which has a built-in receiver). From memory I was able to get up to about ...
  • Note: I'm not a stock/sales person but you'd be looking at stock markdown strategies. My guess is they buy stock at various times and then offer the stock at the price they were able to get it at ...
  • Looks like they are doing an unofficial bundle of 30mm + SD Q, not an official Sigma +$200 US deal. Sigma 30mm F1.4 = $698.78 Sigma SD Q = $1098.90 Total = $1797.68 Be worthwhile picking up any GV ...
  • Note Park70 got us all onto it (thanks Park70!) - hopefully we'll know final preorder pricing soon once the artwork is up and it's added to the camera list (so best not to jump the gun on this). ...
  • Hello, I emailed CRK and they are amending the prices so we should have confirmed prices shortly. Note that the price has been changed to $1098.90 now so if that's body only that's in the same ...
  • It looks like all lenses were meant to work however there may be some issues with the older ones (manual focus/zoom at worst case?) It would be best to wait until the SD Q is actually out when ...
  • Well to be honest I would find somewhere that has the Sigma DP2M and the Ricoh GR II to borrow for a short while to get some experience on them before making a decision (and grab a laptop for ...
  • Replied in DP2M or DP2Q
    Yes. Although the Q has higher resolution (20 mpix vs 15) the detail of the images on the Q wasn't as good as the M due to the lack of microcontrast, so even though I get more pixels, the quality ...
  • Replied in DP2M or DP2Q
    My subjective feeling is the M has better microcontrast and detail for fine textures (like fur, foilage) whereas the Q tends to be a bit less detailed for landscapes (tends to blur adjacent pixels ...
  • Unfortunately not - even though it's got the same pin layout between Sigma and Canon the protocols are different (Sigma uses SA-STTL, Canon E-TTL) so a wireless trigger designed to pass Canon ...
  • I just tested the Yongnuo RF-603 II C's that I have and they work fine to trigger the EF-140DG in manual mode only (at max power) with a RF-603 on the DP2M and the other on the EF-140DG. From ...
  • Not really, Sigma already has a working system for CD AF in the Merrill and Quattro cameras so would just need a signal to change from PD, raise the mirror and then start using CD AF. A combo of ...
  • Not a problem - see how you go with it, it should work fine as a off-camera flash and you can try TTL as well, be interested to hear if it works fine for you with the DP2M. I use the Yongnuo RF-603 ...
  • Yes the EF-500 will work in optical slave flash mode, I imagine if you are getting it make sure you get the SA-TTL model in case you want to try TTL at some point. If you are going off-camera ...
  • I have the Sigma EF-500 and can confirm it doesn't work properly with the DP2M, mostly that it on  occasion will output max power in TTL mode (so you probably would want to use manual mode) and ...
  • The 15" also has a dedicated GPU, so processing with OpenCL (i.e. Adobe) would be faster as well over the 13".
