An old accessory for the SD1 and other SD cameras, I recently bought what was the only one for sale either in Europe or the US. It looks new and arrived in a sealed plastic bag but without box or manual. There is a very brief description on the Sigma UK website but nothing detailed. Can anyone give me a link to a manual?

I have my K-3 set to record images on SD1 and movies on SD2. My usual practice for downloading to my computer is to remove the SD card from the camera and place it in the laptop's SD card slot. Bu today when I did that to download a few movies, the computer would not even acknowledge the card. So I used the USB cable to connect the camera to the computer, but only one SD card showed up (the one with images, not movies). So I took that card out and moved the movies card to the SD1 slot, but it...

In the SD1 brochure it says "The shifted twin cross type sensor improves AF accuracy." Talking about the AF module, not the image sensor. Trouble is, when I search the 'net for "shifted twin cross type sensor" - all I get are references to, guess what, the SD1 camera. Anybody know what this inscrutable Japanese-English actually means? --Ted

Please: I'm shopping for used cameras for my family. I need focus screen dimensions of Sigma SD14, SD15 and SD1. Dimensions needed are: length, width and thickness?  In a pinch I'll forego thickness. Anyone know the dimensions, or have a pointer to a www resource at which I may find the needed dimensions?

I have had a Canon SD1100 IS for close to 10 years. I do mission work all over the world and this camera has lived in my cargo pocket of my pants at all times. It has been and amazing camera for my needs. This year i decided to up grade and just received a brand new Canon ELPH 360 hs. I was so disappointed in the all plastic body that it is going back asap. My old camera took a lot of abuse and never let me down. Can anyone help me with a replacement that will be just as durable as my 1100...

Hi All, It is with a heavy heart I'm leaving the Sigma users fraternity. My SD10 .... followed by SD14 .... followed by SD15 ..... followed by SD1 have served me well for many years  ....... but since Sigma are not releasing any new SLR's, and their mirrorless offerings are now way behind competitors as far as features  - I've made the leap to Sony and one of their new mirrorless offerings (a7RIII). So here's my question, I have a fair amount of good Sigma glass (SA Mount) and two Sigma...

Camera has started defaulting to saving images to SD1.  Yes, I checked (three times) that I set the function correctly.  Once I realized it, I copied all the SD2 images to SD1 & then formatted SD2; tried a couple of shots, & they go to SD2. Set the card to SD1 in viewing mode, & next image again to SD2.   I acknowledge that I can live with this, but it is annoying.  I further acknowledge that I expect that I'm doing something dumb, but as you can see, that's where I'm at. Anybody know the...
