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.

  • Replied in My last plea
    Hello Osman, here I provide you with a screenshot, which shows all Sigma SPP files, which may be spread over the hard disc of your computer. Two things at first: You should be a litte skilled in ...
  • Replied in My last plea
    Osman, I'm of the opinion, that you may ask our forum as long as it is necessary to solve your problems. For sure, one should stay friendly and patient. But if there are continuous troubles, there ...
  • Hello Ted, since years that "shimmering" is the ultimate indicator with the sigma camera that I'm in focus with the lens. I one has a carefull look through the viewfinder, one will see, that this ...
  • 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.

    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 ...
