About me:

I'm taking pictures since over 45 years. Learned the handcraft by a landscape and architecture photographer. Rolleiflex, Mamiya RB 67, Nikonos IV, Sigma. Now I've come to Sigma SD1 M, Sony A900 and Zeiss. Almost with tripod.

  • Hello! Sorry, that I do not exactly understand, whether your resume is meant as sweet or ironically (I'm German language). Sorry.  To cut the story short, I do love these both cameras and their ...
  • You are right! It's between 3,8 and 4 mm! Thank you very much.
  • Especially to you many thanks for that German address! This seems to be very professional equipment ...
  • Again to all contributors: Many thanks for your thoughts and advice! There are several valuable aspects mentioned. Thanks folks! I now have decided to order the Wasabi charger and 2 rechargeable ...
  • Many thanks for You both, Scott and Ted! Does any one know, whether I can get those charger and batteries in Europe/Germany? This seems to be really a good quality... Thanks again Johannes
  • Created question thread Which battery for SD1 M
    As the new "quattro" cameras came out, I decided to stuck with my good old SD1 M until SIGMA decides to continue the good old *true* Foveon sensor (may be as FF?). Now the first of my two ...
  • hello mike, file names starting with a dot "._ nnn" are normally unvisible and  subsidiary files from Mac OS system. You got to see them if "normal" files under Mac OS are copied to a Windows, FAT ...
  • The software you mention I do not know. But may be, you are searching for a Quicklook- plugin, so that you can have a view at the x3f's by simply pressing the space bar in finder (as with all ...
  • I agree completely with Your observations and opinion. These pictures are really disappointing for me as owner of a SD1 M, especially the firs picture. They should have stayed with the Merril.
  • Replied in bla bla bla
    A very informative, exakt and complete answer. Thank you very much.

    ;-) At the moment in that very "scientific" and wordy thread we are shown *one single picture*, which is said to show moirée. But only if it is downsized. When you look at those unhappy grain bins ...
  • I do not own a DP2, but Sigma since over 10 years. I can't imagine, that there will be any moiré with Foveon sensors. They are stand of the art having no moire. I never saw moire on any of my ...
  • Same to me, xpatUSA! But I didn't want to disturb the thread with technical aspects: I am with Mac OS in the internet, and the Safari browser is "pimped" with several Ad blockers, traffic blockers ...
  • Hello Larry, thanks for your feedback! If one clicks once on a given image in the forum, the picture gets quite enlarged to a good size. Then (at least for me) it is the first glance which leads ...
  • I do want to thank you all commentators for their thoughts and impressions to that picture. I think specially "innocentius" contributed aspects which require more than one short glance to a given ...
  • This is a picture I do like very much. Although I'm more interested and dealing with contemporary art, I also share the fascination for the impressionist painting with their light flooded, outdoor ...
  • Very nice, well composed pictures with the unsurpassable color rendition of a foveon ... Exactly, what I always appreciate... I use Sigma cameras since SD 10 and you are right: the favorite is ...
  • it is not only the "calling home", but because the installer installs a whole bunch of "addditional software" which is not neccessary for running the Nik collection without informing the user. ...
  • Replied in Beware ...
    I already stated in that forum, that this software is hooking in your computer system more than microsoft and others. I am on Mac OS, and after using the Nic collection for some time, I got aware, ...

    If I see it right, it is not soo much more than with my SD1 Merrill. And with my SD1 there is a "true" Foveon imager and not such quirky mathematics in order to generate even more "pixels". :( Johannes
