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.

I need to store my DP Merrills for a few months. Will the settings be cleared if I remove the batteries, or will it still be there even though there is no battery in the camera?

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...
