  • I'm returning to this thread to "complain" somewhat about the excellence of this camera -- especially about its very fine lens.   In my wide (panoramic-formatted) shots, the details are so great ...
  • You're absolutely right. The LVF-01 does have those advantages over the Tarion. However, I wear the equivalent of contact lenses and the Tarion suits me -- and works for me -- perfectly.  "To each ...
  • I purchased from Amazon the TARION TR-V1 Universal LCD Display Viewfinder with two extra base-plates for switching between my three Quattro cameras (including the DP0) and it works very well, at ...
  • Having pondered this matter further for a few days now, there is in my view an arguably preferable (because simpler?) option to achieve this other than assigning a separate custom mode.  Using the ...
  • Of course, as you point out, the in-camera RAW is still available as 3:2 for SPP processing.  Many ways to skin the cat!  In my above posting I was concentrating on the technical side without ...
  • While having the DP0 set to 21:9 "for framing" might indeed be helpful in visualization, that setting is really only an in-camera cropping of the camera's standard 3:2 aspect ratio.  Shooting at ...
  • Henrik:  I believe this bag was put on the market before Sigma offered the dp0.  Hence, there were only three Quattro models available at the time. Regards, Jim
  • Henrik: A reputable seller's online description of the bag states: "Holds up to three DP Quattro cameras and the bottom of the bag has the fit of the camera." The actual quality of the bag is OK, ...
  • As JPEG's are additionally already embedded in X3f RAW files, it might be easier(?) to go into SPP first, extract the embedded JPEG files and copy them to Lightroom.  That would save the camera's ...
  • Kendall:  In purchasing the Sigma bag, I was tantalized by Sigma's claim that it would in itself hold up to three Quattros (which my ThinkTank bag would accommodate as well).  However, you've made ...
  • Jim:  You've got a point -- several in fact.  I will reconsider my decision regarding my initial intent not to attempt to return the bag to Sigma.  Also, the two-pound-weight of the ThinkTank bag ...
  • Having acquired two Quattro cameras (dp2 & dp3) and accessories, I decided to order the Sigma CB-31, their bag presumably specifically tailored to accommodate three Quattro cameras.  I had ...
  • My Tarion viewfinder arrived and I had no trouble fitting it to my two Quattros (using the extra baseplate I ordered). In actuality I have found that the orange knobs are not the cause of the ...
  • Thanks for the further advice.  I likely will only replace the (orange) knobs if the right-sided one indeed poses a significant problem.  However, those on the Amazon forum who were successful in ...
  • In azeg's initial posting, one of his "downsides" -- quoted above -- concerns the right mount/adjustment screw (knob) partially blocking access to the "Play" button.  As announced elsewhere in ...
  • Many thanks. I was able to order through Amazon the Tarion TR-V1 for a little less than $60 U.S. along with an extra baseplate for about $13. However, I don't see where it would be "cheap" to ...
  • I can't really disagree with what you say about the advantages of the (Tarion TR-V1) Viewfinder over the ClearViewer. I would in fact be tempted to purchase the Tarion TR-V1 for use on a Quattro ...
  • I have been using various models of the ClearViewer on my cameras with great satisfaction for years, including now also on my Quattros. You can order them for specific cameras (as the tripod ...
  • I've used the SD15 with a few selective IR filters. Cheaper camera than the SD1. I assume you've seen: http://blog.sigmaphoto.com/2012/sigma-sd1-and-sd15-for-digital-infrared-photography-by-jack-ho ...
  • I'm not certain what you mean by "Android Device."  An Android running tablet should not be inordinately expensive to obtain, but perhaps is there a way of replicating the Android OS on a Windows PC?
