I am trying to update the firmware and have the file DP3QV202.BIN in the root directory of the SD card as required, however the camera is saying "No Firmware update file on memory card."  I have re-formatted the card and re-downloaded the firmware file, still same issue. Has anyone had this issue before? Any suggestions to resolve this? Thanks.

Hi everyone, I just bought a Fuji X-E3, which should arrive at my store in a few days time, but I didn’t purchase any lens yet. I’m currently using a Sigma DP1M, a Sigma DP3M and some Pentax gear. I was considering getting a Voigtländer 21mm f/4 and a M to X mount adapter for the following reasons (no particular order) > Coming from Sigma, I’d rather stay on the sharper side of things (dismissing cheap lenses) > I’d prefer a real manual focus lens (as opposed to a focus by wire) > I really...

I’m pretty new to this camera, but I LOVE it. I’m going to be in a situation where I’d like to do some night shooting...strolling around town, etc. and only want the DP3M with me. I don’t mind the grain, as I expect the end results will be all B/W. I’ve tried some of my Canon flashes and can only get them to work when I tape over all the pins except the middle pin...and this works only OK. I’d prefer not to do this. So...I’m down to three flashes, the Sigma EF-140S, the Metz 24 AF-1 and the...

So this is probably very basic, but I'm running into something with the DP3m. Take the below image: As you can see the entire mushroom is not in focus. What I wanted to achieve was the mushroom in focus in its entirety, and the background to have the bokeh that it currently has. This image is shot at f3.2 but I tried it with different values and it didn't change anything. I went to f5.6 and the stem would still be out of focus for example. Could it be the metering mode? It's set to...

Has anyone seen or made a clip on/clamp on Cable release adapter to fit Sigma DP Merrill camera bodies? I'm photographing on a tripod often and at times the self timer release causes me to miss "the moment". If I had a cable release I would be a bit better off. I can probably figure out how to jury rig one but if someone has already done it I'll go for that and save time and effort. Thanks.

I'm curious.. If you could only have one Merrill model, which would it be and why?  (fixed lens models - so DP1m, DP2m or DP3m)

Do you think DP3M lens' plane focus is wider than other lens @f/2.8? I shot a couple and come to think of if that DP3M depth of field is insane (wide) @f/2.8 that the head of the model is in focus while the bokeh is smooth.  I shot the model at 1.8 meter distance.

So I started with a dp0, then bought a DP3M and now...I'm looking at a DP2S. The F13 has always been my favourite Foveon sensor, however I'm interested in converting it to Full Spectrum. Is this doable as a DIY project and if so, can anybody link to a good guide? I have looked but cannot find ant how-tos so any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. --https://www.flickr.com/photos/mac_arthur/

I am sitting on the fence on buying a 1DPQ. Now I know the Sigma DP1X, DP3M and SD14 camera's, so I know the pro's and cons of Sigma. But I haven't had my hands on a DPQ...  Primary use will be the outlands here in Sweden, long low golden light with tripod. Amy sound experience is greatly apreciated!

As I think about a replacement for my DP3 Merrill which was destroyed in my vehicle fire in Sept, I was thinking about a D3. Since I record many panoramas, this would suffice for the most part. What to do?
