  • OK hopefully that works out well for you SigmaChrome. Just wish there was a good site that could collate all the differences on these laptops such as ports and features in a useful filterable ...
  • You do pay some money for the Drobo (or RAID unit) itself, however if you have a constantly connected system the Drobo does protect against any single disk failure. The main advantage is the ...
  • Have you considered getting a Drobo 5D3 (or older 5C)? These let you plug up to 5 drives in (typically 3+) and you can add more drives or replace with larger capacity drives one at a time once ...
  • As xpatUSA mentions checking the sold/completed listings in eBay is a good indicator of what people are willing to spend on the Quattro. If you bought from CRKennedy you may want to check the ...
  • Replied in USB dock
    The USB Dock really doesn't do anything for the SD Quattro for focus (ie micro-adjustments, which works better for SD1M/SD15 etc) but should provide things like the OS adjustments, button ...
  • Replied in SD1 Question.
    The Dock certainly is useful for minimising AF issues. I've found the SDQ to be a bit hit or miss with AF where sometimes it looks like it trusts PDAF over CDAF, it'd be interesting if it did ...
  • Replied in SD1 Question.
    I don't think so, CEO Yamaki stepped in with the release of the SD1M which dropped the price to ~$2300 (02/2012) and had to offer trade in points for previous SD1 owners to avoid upsetting them ...
  • Replied in SD1 Question.
    Think it was previous management deciding on that and misjudged the market badly. Sigma's a niche product but not to that level given the special handling the Sigma cameras require. It depends what ...
  • That's actually pretty generous. As a business anything over 3 years is pretty good (or you pay extra for an extended warranty) and probably the way to place it is the price with the warranty vs ...
  • Sounds like they're on the ball with service and repairs where it makes sense. Obviously, those costs would come out from the original purchase price to maintain the support/service contracts for ...
  • I'm not sure how well pricing arguments would go from a geographical distance, there's only one distributor in Australia (CR Kennedy) that I know of; part of the costs included I expect would be ...
  • It looks like it's the Merrill X3F RAW format, that generally is about 40 - 55 MiB from memory of the sizes I was getting. Yes so there's always some variability in the X3F RAW format sizes ...
  • If they have only limited lenses/accessories (ie new L-Mount lenses) on a roadshow the bad PR from them going missing at the start of a series of events (ie, stolen) so that nobody else gets to ...
  • It looks like they will according to their service price lists here - so it's 12,100 - 23,100¥ ($112 - 214 USD) for typical repairs and 49,500¥ (~$460) for more difficult repairs assuming they have ...
  • I've been happy with the DP Merrill form factor, feels pretty solid and reliable to me. I know some people will get brackets or extra grips for handling (I'd recommend the neck strap or wrist ...
