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.

I ordered a 20" high by 24" wide high gloss metal print of this shot, centered on the boat: Honestly I'm disappointed. It's just not as sharp as I was expecting. As you can see, for one example, the braids in the ropes hanging on the boat are clearly visible. In the print they are not at all. Did something go wrong or is the resolution of this medium simply that limited? Also the grain in all the wood is dull, the lettering in the "no public access" signs is fuzzy, the seagull on the right...
Hi all, I have a crack on a dp2m screen (still usable, only visually annoying) and I was looking for some information about screen replacement. I understood there are some DP2M who have a protective screen (easier to replace) and other where if you crack it you have to change the whole screen (more complex and expensive). Do you confirm? How to know it exactly? Do you know where I can find more info and cheap replacement part to do it myself? (ideally also a video tutorial) Do you think...
