I have four Sigma cameras and their LCD's (quoted from the manuals) are: SD10 1.8" 130,000 dots. SD14 2.5" 150,000 px. DP2s 2.5" 230,000 px. DP2M 3" 920,000 px. Can someone please resolve the above numbers to some meaningful common metric? I ask because some LCDs are expressed in dots meaning sub-pixels just like your TV. Others are "field-sequential", whatever TF that means. Others might even tell the truth, like my NEC monitor with it's 0.265mm group of 3 sub-pixels which comprise one real...

In addition to people's experience with these combinations, I's be grateful if you could point me to the most recent compatibility chart before I pull the trigger (so to speak) on one of these as I want something to justify returning it in the event it doesn't work as expected. If the compatibility chart is out of date (i.e. not showing D5) I may as well take my chances buying it second-hand. FYI, I have 2x SB700s (and an SB600) so it would be acting occasionally as a Master/Controller to...

Hi I recently bought a second-hand Sigma DP2 Merrill, which takes amazing pictures but it's handicaps are well known, so I'm looking for something as a back-up for when I need to use ISO above 200, need good, if not necessarily class-leading AF and has good battery life (all the things that the Sigma doesn't). Ever since the NEX-7 came out I always liked the ergonomics, the looks and I know the IQ from the Sigma trio is excellent wide open. I'm also cost conscious because I own a slew of...

Hello, Sorry to bother everyone with a question concerning a camera that many members of this forum are perhaps considering as an obsolete one... It happens that I have recently lost my DP2 Merrill (well, the mail service did it) and that I cannot easily switch to a Quattro-sensor based camera because this would require SPP 6+, which I cannot run under any GNU/Linux operating system (I'm using SPP 5.5.3 for my remaining DP1 Merrill). So I'm considering a brand new SD1 Merrill kit with the kit...

Hi Kalpanika developers, and Kalpanika users I would love to have the opportunity to experiment with the Kalpanika x3f raw file converter to DNG. I have read all that I can ("can" is the key word here...) on DPReview regarding this complicated issue, and I have learned a lot and has raised a lot of questions. My goal: I am trying to come up with an optimal workflow for processing photographs I take with my Sigma DP2M and DP3M cameras, with the end goal being the print. I create jpegs from...

A couple of days ago a brought a selection of 200+ BW digital photographs (jpg) taken during the last two years with my Sigma DP2M, for 10 cm x 15 cm printing at a local shop. The paper copies that I got in return cannot be more hideous. The shots appear to have been automatically "corrected" by increasing exposition by a lot with a considerable loss of contrast and detail with an extremely disappointing result. On top of that the prints have a yellowish appearance that contrast with the...

I have a beaten up old DP2M that's gone on many trips with me and taken thousands of photos. I bought a DP0 Quattro more recently to compliment it, but in practice I've used that far more; now and again though the DP2M is perfect... Until last month, when the minute I tried to take a photo the horrible noise coming out of the autofocus unit told me it was not in good shape. It's been sat in a camera bag and was working fine prior, without being dropped or knocked (it's been battered around...

After having enjoyed my DP2S, I craved for more resolution but had had a bad experience with DP2 Merrill, so I am put off purchasing anything newer. My issues mainly evolved around two topics - 1. SPP quirks with colorspace settings and color transforms. 2. Seeming lack of IR filtering on DP2 Merill. Thus the question - do you notice the same? Is DP2M missing an IR filter? I mean all people shot in shadow light show incredible and unwanted skin [sub-]structure details (pores, veins, skin...

Hi all,  Thinking of getting back into the Sigma world with a SDQ + 30mm 1.4. I used to love using the "blue channel trick" in SPP for SD1 and DP2M files, but I understand that is no longer available. Is the detail in ISO1600 or 3200 B&W shots still quite good? I'm having trouble finding an answer online.
