  • This will be a great time saver.  Thanks a lot!
  • Thank you all for your input on this topic.  I plan to contact Sigma requesting a fix for this issue in a future SPP version.
  • Hi Vitée, Thanks a lot for the follow-up. I should add that the date in the date and time of the developed file are correct, but the copyright year is wrong.  For example: Date/Time Original : ...
  • Created question thread Wrong copyright year in EXIF
    Dear Sigma friends, Whenever I develop raw files from my DP2 Merrill camera, the copyright field in the resulting file's exif shows 2012 and I then have to manually change it to 2016 using the ...
  • Really liked the flow and cool tones of the first shot. Got my vote and inspired me to use my dp2m in new ways. -Dan
  • Assuming this is a Quattro camera... Suggesting to watch this clip, you can jump to the 7min mark where it talks about highlights.
  • I use the Ricoh DB-65 battery in the dp2 Merrill and have had no issues, fits perfectly. This battery is identical to the Sigma battery. Moreover, the DB-65 charger (BJ-6) seems identical to the ...
  • I really like your work Barry! -Dan
  • Both photos are stunning! I have one minor concern: in the Q shot do I sense some sort of bleedthru at the edge of the mountain on the right side of the image?  The orange contour seems more ...
  • --- Google, plead add lossless output support ---

    Great app especially after the addition of lossless input (raw DNG). Now all of the input processing can be done without loss of quality. But...

  • Those are some wonderful photos. What better way to show the quality of a lens than to test it against the acutance of the Merrill Foveon sensor.

  • Hi All, I agree with Anthony in that "Auto WB can be useful for mixed lighting conditions and dawn/dusk".  My first attempt at a sunset yielded very nice colors that didn't need changing. Here are ...
  • Replied in Oh the SD9...
    Fantastic portrait Steve! I especially like the tonality and contrast which give the image a great mood. -Dan Https://
  • Replied in DP0Q did this!
    It's more than the camera but the photographer as well :-) Great job! Dan
  • Roland, Thanks for this intriguing method. How far were you able to push the ISO while keeping an "acceptable" noise/color balance? Thanks, Dan
  • Coming up to speed since my last post... Thanks Ted and all for the great info here related to luminance. It is nice that we can collaborate here to make the best of our Foveon images. -Dan https ...
  • Thanks Ted for the valuable info and for kind comment regarding my photo. To your point, one may allow some green channel into the blue mix in order to get more luminance and then apply some light ...
  • To the point of shooting b&w: I have a dp2 Merrill and am very happy with the results when I develop b&w using the blue channel only. It is almost free of noise at iso1600 as you can see in this shot:
