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

Why not build the camera with an extension of the body structure below the lens mount protrusion, to be flush with the tripod mount, to provide a surer, more rigid, and less damage-prone union with the tripod ? I notice, for instance, that the SD1M and the Nikon D500 do this (tho half-heartedly).

I've been tasked with "improving" the AF performance of our SD1m cameras. Does the AF Micro Adjustment in the camera actually improve results? If I go through and make AF Micro Adjustment settings for all our lenses at home, do I need to do anything else while we're out shooting?I found the "Dot-Tune" method, and I think I can adjust it for the SD1m's lack of Live View. Is this good, or is there a better method to calibrate the AF?Side note: I'm really disappointed that Sigma never introduced...

Woe! I switched on my SD1M and the only response I got in the viewfinder was a "Btry" light. I changed batteries and went on shooting. Trouble is, I ended up with the default date and time - somewhere in 2011 :-( Can this be corrected for the shots I took before realising and resetting the date and time? It would involve changing EXIF, I suppose. Ta. atom14.

SD1M DP2Q Problem was WB setting gone to "Auto (Lighting Source Priority) : Set White Balance with the atmosphere of the place leaving the lighting source. (only dp Quattro series and sd Quattro). I gives wierd results, and good ones. Must know what one is doing. Anyway the shots with SD1M and SD2Q at last fine.
