Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am thinking of buying a Sigma SD1 Merrill and sell my DP2 Merrill. I wanted to know what is the max capacity CF card it will support. I have some 256GB Extreme Pro CF that I use with my D810 but not sure if SD1M will take such large capacity cards. Also will the card speed matter? Many thanks everyone, much appreciated. --http://www.mf-photography.com

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....

Been using a DP2M for a while, using a flow with the x3f_extract tool ( X3F TOOLS VERSION = 0.57-windows-x86_64 )to bring the files into LR which has been working great. Inside Darktable with message " 'Sigma SD Quattro H' color matrix not found" Windows DNG preview Upgraded to a SDQH this week, and the one issue that I can't find a good answer for is the images are purple. Compressed, Uncompressed. With Wrapper without, tiff, DNG, with Adobe DNG converter, ect. It looks like there is no...

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 If the compatibility chart is out of date (i.e. not showing D5) I may as well take my chances buying it second-hand.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...
