Hi there Sigmarians! At least one of my SD9, and one of my SD10, and a DP1x, they all lose time and date immedeately after removing the main battery. (To be precise the affected SD9 does so when changing the CR123s).  A well prepared and very quick and hasty (main) battery exchange in say 5 seconds does not help. It's already too late then. Time and date info lost.  So I suppose, all those cameras do not have a built in buffer capacity, which should recharge from the main battery, but rather...

Dear forum members, my old but much loved DP1s is no longer working as expected.  the camera powers up but I have no live view for composing a picture. I can see the various camera shooting parameters , the menus and review images taken before the fault began.  however if I press the shutter I can hear the shutter actuate but on review the image is black . I notice that in shooting mode A the shutter speed is 15s and the exposure compensation is -3. I have tried unsuccessfully changing these...

Hi Sigmarian people! Sigma stopped servicing the DP1 / DP1s / DP1x / DP2 / DP2s / DP2x several years ago.  These cameras are extremely beautiful tools! Anyway, their lens mechanisms are still dying due to the vicious ribbon cable breaking at some point after not so much usage. ...  :-(   Was there anybody seen, is there anybody around with some expertise, a person who is able to repair these cameras? The spare part cable itself costs 5...6EUR from China. Unfortunately I am not that skilled...

Hi all, I've read multiple discussions on this but just wanted to clarify as I'm new to the Foveon game. I recently purchased a DP1S - I can load the files into Lightroom Classic just fine, but am I losing anything by not first processing them in SPP? And what's the "minimum" amount of processing that I can get away with in SPP (just really used to LR at this point) Thanks in advance!

Hello, I bought this cheap Fotasy wrist strap for my DP1s cam, but the thread size in the strap was far thicker than the eyelet in the camera, which I find very odd, do you guys have any recommendations for a wrist strap for the weird eyelet in the DP1s? Wrist trap I bought, but the thread is too large for the eyelet.

I have a dp2s, and was wondering what version of Sigma photo pro is best to use for dp1s/dp2s image processing.  I have recently updated version 4 to version 6, but 6 seems to crash frequently.  A few questions 1) do the more recent versions of photo pro add any features or improve usability, or do most of the changes in the recent versions have to do with processing the Merrill and Quattro files? 2) Given I will only be processing dp2s files, any insight on what version of sigma photo pro...

Would any of you know if any improvements were made regarding the stuck lens due to broken cable problem many of the original DP s had?  I've had one DP1s that became a paper weight this way, but now I want to get a pair of DP1/DP2x cameras and I'm a bit reluctant due to the breakage prospect. Thanks in advance.. DG

For example: DP2 vs. DP2s? All my Sigma DSLR's are compatible with all my various converters. Therefore, my current philosophy does not include SD15, Merrill, Quattro. I am aware that the DPnX models have an AFE similar if not the same as SD15. So, not interested in those. Thinking of trading or selling the SD9 for a DP1s or DP2s model but first I need to know that, for example, FastStone Viewer will open a DP1s or DP2s file without color cast, etc. OT, but any comments about DP1s vs. DP2s...

As the new owner of a Dp1s, I have heard about the wiring mod that can be done to the Dp1 and Dp2 cameras to keep the lens permanently extended, so as to avoid the motor/wire wearing out problem, but what isn't clear is can this mod be done to remedy the problem after the lens has already malfunctioned, or is it solely a preventative measure beforehand?
