  • Velvia 50 and Kodachrome 64.
  • Hello Alex, what you describe here is exactly my experience with SD1M files. Especially the part that once SPP crashed on a file, it would crash on every succeeding attempt. This was absolutely not ...
  • Now you make me real envoius... On my MacBook Pro (2,6 GHz Intel Core Duo, 8GB RAM) SPP takes 3 1/2 minutes (!!!) to process a single image. And crashes on evey second one. Hard disk space is not ...
  • Yes. I use Photoshop/ACR to convert and edit the raw data of my micro-four-thirds cameras. No problems ever.
  • I use two different MacBook Pro's running two different versions of MacOS (because I have some legacy software which I still need). I have so far tried every imaginable combination of SPP versions ...
  • Hello! I would prefer crowdfunding a stable and efficient raw data processor for the Sigmas we already have. One that really works and turns processing those pictures into a joy rather than a ...
  • Hello! Not in my case. Currently I am "carrying" an SD1 Merrill, but in many respects I much prefer my old SD10. Mainly because it came with a stable version of SPP and I was able to process my ...
  • Wonderful! Do you have any idea what your friend did as post processing and what software he/she used? Regards Max
  • Hello! No (everyday) and no (only) camera. For many years I had an SD10, now followed by an SD1 Merrill. Both are big, heavy, cumbersome, slow, good lighting conditions only, RAW format only with ...
  • Hello! I don't really know ... Foveon and astrophotography don't really go together. Moon photography to a degree, but nothing else. And honestly I don't think it's worth buying a telescope for ...
  • Hello! What exactly is your problem with this forum? What did you expect as a response to your opening post? You show us some calculations about the apparent size of sun and moon and conclude from ...
  • Hello! Thanks for sharing your images! My biggest panorama so far was made of 24 pictures, so I really know what an amount of work goes into every single of those! Regards Max
  • That would be the best option. But they were difficult to find (and overly expensive) when the camera was new 10 years ago. With luck you can find one now on eBay, but you probably have to buy a ...
  • Hello! The original rechargeable batteries for the SD-10 (called BP-11) are lithium batteries. Two packs of 3.6V each connected in series, so the camera is fed with 7.2V using Sigma's own ...
  • Excellent choice :-) Myself I "upgraded" to the SD1 Merrill only a few weeks ago after many years with the SD10 - still have to get used to the file sizes and processing time. Regarding your ...
  • Hello! That's true of course. It really depends on the combination of the telescope/spotting scope/microscope eyepiece and the lens on the camera. Some combinations do not work well for large ...
  • Hello! Yes, why not. Myself, I have no DP2M (only DSLRs from Sigma) but other compact cameras. I use one of these (http://www.astroshop.eu/smartphone-digicam-clamps/baader-microstage-ii/p,12182) ...
  • Hello! I'm afraid I haven't been to the Isle of Skye in my Foveon time, but I have quite a few images taken with Fujichrome Velvia from there and they look similar. So: no - I don't think this ...
  • Hello! Not around here (Germany). The official price for the body alone on the Sigma website has been around 2000 Euros since years and the price on Amazon varies between 900 and 1200 Euros. Right ...
