AscherJim's recent activity

  • Through reading the more recent postings here, as I understand it one can change the starting point -- i.e., an initial EV deviation from either side of 0EV -- but the resulting seven photos in ...
  • You're right.  I should have said that Sean's (favorable) expectation was that the combination would work well on the "H" (and other Quattros?), and that he would be trying it in the near future.  ...
  • I've haven't tried my SFD yet but that's a good option to know.  Actual experience of course will be a determinant -- both for general setting or for a particular scene.   Thanks for sharing that ...
  • Sean Reid released today (May 11) on his proprietary web site a review of the Sigma SD Quattro H in which he favorably refers to his use of an external viewing monitor.
  • You of course need to consult the SPP instructions.  After importing a photo in the x3f format, I go to the middle of the top of the screen where one of the options is for X3f/auto/custom.  I ...
  • After opening a photo in SSP, I choose the "Standard" color adjustment and (quickly!) transfer the resulting "edited" photo out of SPP in the TIFF format, where I pick it up with DxO for further ...
  • I still manage to get significant benefit from DxO for my SSP minimally processed photos after passing them into DxO after their conversion to the tiff format.
  • 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 ...
