Guy's, I have been a Sigma shooter since my day's with the SD10, I liked my SD15 with 24-70 EX (non macro or OS) combination the best of all but that went into the Shropshire Union canal with me when I fell off the side of a narrowboat back in 2014 and was duly replaced with a SD1 which was great but mine did not autofocus too well with Art glass. I eventually sold my SD1 and all my Sigma glass about a year ago after a dummy spit with the Australian importer of Sigma products who at that time...

Hello good day I have 2 goals: Sigma DC 18-55 mm 1: 2.8-4.5 HSM Sigma DC 55-200 mm 1: 4-5.6 HSM I used in a SD 15 ... And I would like to know if they would work well in the camera Sigma sd Quattro? Are they compatible with all the functions of the sd quattro? Automatic focus, manual focus? Any function would not work? Thank you

It seems that the Merrill and Quattro based cameras have the native ability to capture a monochrome image in RAW format along with color image data. The SPP version for these sensors has a "monochrome" button that easily changes a color X3F file to mono, or readily converts a full spectrum or IR RAW file with the red cast. It appears that the SD15 does not have the native ability to capture a color X3F file and a monochrome X3F file at the same time. Choosing B&W through the in camera menu is...

What is the best version of SPP for processing RAW files from the SD15? I picked up a used SD15 today, updated the firmware, took a couple of test shots, looks like it's working ok. It's been a minute since I processed Sigma files, I have SPP 5.4 on my computer that I processed these samples with. It seems to work well but I was curious if there was a version that worked the best with SD15 RAW files. Thanks! ISO 50, 50mm @F1.4  ISO 100, 105mm @F11

Hi everybody. Going to buy me a Sigma SD. There is a very cheap offer for SD15 but I doubt buying it. I like very much SD14 colors, but SD15 galleries don't impress me at all. SD15 shots looks mostly like bayer's ones. So I wonder if it's possible to get that magic SD14 colors from SD15 through SPP or not. If not I would rather go for SD14. Thanks for your help.

Hi All. By the end of this month I am to visit Hungary and shoot there wedding reception. I am going to take one of my Sigma cameras with 17-50/2.8OS, but cannot decide SD15 or SD1M. Maybe some of you could tell me, which camera would be better in this case not to miss a thing. Which lens from my gear list would you recommend as a second one: 50/1,4 for portraits, 70-200/2.8OS as a long range gun or anything else? Take into account the importance of the event. Don't want to carry heavy load...

Hi Everyone: I have been using the Sigma DC 17-70mm 1:2.8-4.5 zoom for several years now. I have an SD15. I recently had the opportunity to shoot a gypsy encampment in India. If I can't print my images sharply at 11X17 I don't consider an image successful. I know it is silly, but that is my craziness. In order to get that level of sharpness, I had to push the images a bit in post-processing. The pictures were taken at ISO400 and all were in the shade. Although I am fairly happy with the...

This image was taken with a Sigma Foveon SD15, 17-70mm lens, at 70mm, ISO 800, f7.1, 1/125 sec. I am very happy with this picture, as everything seems to fall into place: composition, color palette, background, and particularly the woman's expression, which is very Mona Lisa like. I need some help though. This picture was taken in the shade and is under-exposed. The problem is that the foveon sensor seems to struggle with subdued light. For instance, at 200% the integrity of the image begins...

Any ideas as to why SD15 reverts to original Date & Time if battery is removed from the camera for an hour or more, that is, it does not hold the correct Date & Time. Not a major problem, just a bit of a nuisance. S
