Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am going to purchase the Sigma SD1 Merrill today, and I also saw SD Quattro H going for slightly more. I am wondering given the chance that you can afford one of the either camera, which one would you go for? SD1 Merrill or SD Quattro H? Let's share our perspective and reasons behind it. For me: I'd go for Sigma SD1 Merrill. Merrill quality impresses me more than Quattro, and it supports all the sigma lenses incl. old ones which ones are not guaranteed to...

Hello everyone, Hope you are all well and having a great day. I am thinking of getting a new Art prime lens for SD1M, maybe 85mm or 135mm or maybe the 50-100mm F1.8 zoom. I am just wondering if there is any compatibility issue that I should know about before I purchase. Many thanks for sharing your experience with me. --http://www.mf-photography.com

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am thinking of buying a Sigma SD1 Merrill and sell my DP2 Merrill. I wanted to know what is the max capacity CF card it will support. I have some 256GB Extreme Pro CF that I use with my D810 but not sure if SD1M will take such large capacity cards. Also will the card speed matter? Many thanks everyone, much appreciated. --http://www.mf-photography.com

Okay people, I do have the 30 mm but my wife really wants a nice small zoom. But I cannot decide. So help would be nice. I have the SD1m and the 30 mm 1.4 art and the 70 mm 2.8 makro. I do not think I will be selling the 30 mm. I love it to much. What lens is the sharpest? What are the differences? I do not care about the ‘makro’ on the 18-50. Which lens has the best and most reliable AF? And: wich one has the niciest MF ring? I absolutely love the sturdy focusring on the 30 mm. Reminds me of...

Anyone have any experience with this: Pixel TW-283 E3 Wireless Remote Shutter Release Cable For Canon Rebel PowerShot Pentax Samsung Sigma Digital Camera The spec says it is usable with several camera makes including the SD1 but needs a different connecting cable for each make. The placement (on Amazon UK) gives no indication where the different cables can be found. it does come with an E3 connector but does not specify which camera that is for. The Sigma remote release only works when fired...

Yes, I realize that this is not the retouching forum, but I figured that I would ask here first. I have a 14 shot horizontal pano taken with a Sigma SD1M but the problem is the water- the seams are readily apparent. Everything else looks good. It isn't an exposure issue, but rather the wave movement. What is the best way to approach this problem? Thanks. I can always try the retouching forum later :) --Moments in Time, a work in progress.... https://www.flickr.com/gp/142423236@N08/965cs3

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...

Hello everyone, I'm pretty much a photography-newbie. My current experience is limited to taking pictures with smartphones and non-interchangeable lens compacts. However, recently I'm determined to get more involved with the hobby and learn 'proper' photography. My friend, who is a pentaxian, recommended one of the Pentax DSLRs as a great stuff for an ambitious amateur (I like to label myself as such :P) and I was considering getting a K-70 with some lens - potentially third-party Tamron, or...

I use RawDigger a lot to see raw histograms in order to check exposure, noise, etc. I notice that each model that I have, or have had, saturates at wildly different levels: SD10 at roughly 10,000 but with outliers up to even 20,000. SD14 at about 6,900 but with outliers up to maybe 10,000. DP2s at about 2,300 but with no outliers. SD1M at about 4,080 but with no outliers. All these numbers are derived from 12-bit ADCs, so the Merrill is the only one that makes any sense! Quattros come with...

Anyone using the 17-70 mm 2.8/4 Contemporary on either the sd Quattro or the SD1 Merrill, how does it compare, optically, with any of the Art lenses. Would it be a useful and good enough lens to keep to use on the sd Quattro.? S
