Spent the last couple of days looking over videos, threads, and blogs about the Sigma Foveon cameras. They aren't terribly expensive on the used market, but I'm wondering how much nicer a DP1M or DP2M would be for B&W or street shooting compared to my X-T20 with 35/1.4. There's the obvious aperture difference, and I've read plenty about the speed, raw development, battery life, high iso, etc. None of that is of particular concern, since I'm interested in it for the quirks and image quality....

Hello, I have this problem that I noticed recently, that can be observed on the attached pic (jpg straight out of the camera). these are very noticeable green and pink rings that show up whenever there is a significant light source (sun or light bulb) or bright surface like white wall. the camera is Sigma DP1 Merrill, which I like very much, but was just wondering if its normal or is something wrong with it (and what it might be?)?
Being new to this forum, i would like to say greetings first. I've shot several sigma cameras during the past years, including sigma dp1m, dp3m, dp2x, mostly in monochrome and have always been astounded by the advantage they give over conventional Bayer pattern cameras. However. For the past several months i got hooked on film and now i rarely touch my digitals... My usual workflow is as follows - BW film -> Fuji X-E1 w/ macro -> dcraw linear 16 bit TIFF -> inverted in Silverfast Negafix or...

Please bear with me on a short journey… A few years ago I had a decision to make: Sigma DP 1 Merrill or Ricoh GR. I loved the look of the Merrill but pushed the button on the Ricoh GR for practicality. I have never regretted my decision as the Ricoh GR is awesome! However… It seems to be something special about the Fovean sensor, especially the early Merrill series and have bought a DP 1 Merrill. Can any experienced Dp1 users please point me in the right direction regarding best software to...
I've been shooting with a new Sigma DP2M and I've got an unusual problem: whenever I power down and power back up, the camera returns into a setting which I gave it some time ago (B+W, 400ASA, etc.), different from the current setting when it was powered off. In other words, it forgets my current settings and goes back to this other setting. Unfortunately, this appears to be a new behavior, not the way it was working when I first got it. I've been shooting with the Merrill cameras for a...

I bought a DP2 Merrill last week. I've always been intrigued by this camera since it was launched, but couldn't justify full price given the drawbacks of the camera. However, given the low price of the DP2M now, curiosity got the better of me and I bought one. Wow! I'm still learning this camera, but the more I use it, the more I like it. I'd now like to get a DP3M, and possibly a DP1M as well. Does anybody know of any camera stores that still has new stock of these? UK or EU to avoid...
