  • Hello! Yes and no. A good deal compared to the original price 2 1/2 years ago. But since the much superior FP L came out last year that was to be expected. I only wonder why it took so long. Regards ...
  • Hello! And Leica, the original inventor of this kind of camera, are still making them. But with a 28mm instead of a 50mm lens, plenty of megapixels and kiloEuros though (the „007“ edition costs ...
  • Hello, no, unfortunately Sigma does not stamp or print the type of mount on the lens. Only the plastic back cover is marked with the type of mount. Which in the case of Canon is not much help ...
  • Hello! There is quite a list of Sigma 35mm cameras to choose from (I got this from the german Wikipedia article): Mark-1, SLR, М42 screw mount SA-1, ZoomMan SLR, PK-bajonet AF35D-TF, compact camera ...
  • Hello! Just curious, but what do you expect to capture with your 10" telescope during the eclipse? The solar corona is really large, about 5 to 10 solar diameters, depending on how much of it you ...
  • Hello! The maximum in terms of longest duration (4 minutes and 26 seconds) is going to be in southwestern Texas. Coincidentally this is also the area which statistically has the best weather ...
  • What does it matter? Did Leonardo care whether his paintbrushes were made one day or ten years before he used them? But you could consider to go even further back in time and look for a DP2 ...
  • Hello! To save others the trouble: Out of curiosity I tried it on my not-so-new MacBook Pro running OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). The latest version of Phocus that can be installed on this Mac is 3.3 ...
  • Hello! That was my first thought too, but there is no information inside that file. It's just an empty shell: <?xml version="1.0"?> <Custom> <Adj> <Color /> <BW /> </Adj> </Custom> The settings ...
  • Hello! Very interesting and for some pictures certainly worth a try. One remark though: If you install the latest version of Affinity Photo (which usually sells for around 50$/Euros for a lifetime ...
  • Hello! To be honest I didn't expect a different result :-) Just look how difficult it is to find pre-owned Sigma Cameras (especially Merrills) and SA mount lenses. (We) People who have them know ...
  • Hello Roger! That was me who said that. But it was not regarding blotching specifically, more regarding using the right tool for the job. With my EOS 6D (which I puchased for astrophotography only) ...
  • I doubt that there is a universal definition. But the dedicated astronomical cameras are commonly divided into two classes: "solar system imagers" and "deep sky imagers". The first ones are ...
  • Hello! More or less. Camera model or sensor type. I am an amateur astronomer. "Low light" has a completely different meaning in that field than in normal photography. So there can be no universal ...
  • Hello! My definition: Low light is when it's time to put the Sigma in the backpack and get out the Canon :-) Regards Max
  • Hello! Accoding to their own press releases a full frame Foveon sensor is under development. It will certainly get it's own dedicated camera body (or several body-fixed-lens-combinations as with ...
  • Hello! I use this lens on my SD1M for 75% of the pictures I take with that camera. And because I am so happy with that lens in terms of size and versatility, I bought a second one for my Canon EOS ...
  • Hello! To me the concept of continuosly buying and selling (photographic) gear never appealed. When I like something I will continue to use it until it either breaks or becomes so hopelessly ...
  • Hello! Difficult question. For me, to be worth 3000$ (which would be even more in my part of the world due to taxes and more people in the supply chain who will try and make their cut) if would ...
  • Hello! The SD1 Merrill gave me too many wonderful pictures to choose just five of them. It can be a terrible PIA when it comes to processing and adjusting the photos, but the results are usually ...
