Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I have been playing with the double and S-Hi export options in the SPP, and much to my surprise, the images looks plenty sharp and detailed even at double size. Is double or S-Hi sizes are just scaled? Or is there something else involved? I wonder if the 70mm F2.8 Macro Art would produce even sharper images than the 30mm F/1.4 Art. Many thanks. --IG: https://www.instagram.com/manzurfahim/website: http://www.mf-photography.com

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I have decided to get a lens for my sd Quattro. I was thinking of waiting for the L mount FF next year, but now I am thinking if I get a SA mount lens, I can use it for my sd Quattro as well as the next camera with MC-21. But SA mount will probably be discontinued and it'll difficult to find a lens then. So what do you think is a better choice? 70mm is slow focusing and doesn't have OS, 105mm has but has a longer FL. I found them for about the same price and...

Hello all I tried to connect my sd quattro to a 4K television via HDMI and the resolution is 640x480. Can the resolution be increased? I am not expecting 4K but at least 1080 would be nicer to the eyes. The HDMI cable I am using can hadle 4k 60Hz and has ethernet. I bought it for the flexibility to connect other devices. With thanks M

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I was looking into getting a good lens for sd Quattro. I just extracted some double sized files, and although they have great resolution, 30mm F1.4 is not the greatest art lens there. I was wondering if anyone here is using the 70mm macro lens with their sd quattro and if I can get some personal experience shared here. I'll mainly be doing portraits, and also I can use it with MC-21 when the FF Foveon comes out next year. Thank you in advance, looking...

I shoot a lot of still life photos and small scenes with a Ricoh GRDI and 4. I'm now thinking about upgrading to a dp2 Quattro or the sd Quattro with standard kit 30mm. Because I like the colour but the b&w is good too. I have finally rejected a Ricoh GR2 as an upgrade, and I've been considering a Sigma Foveon for some time - but am finding it hard to weigh up between the two models mentioned. I like the compactness and simplicity of the dp2 Quattro. It reminds me of the Ricoh in some ways. I...

I will be helping with a Hungarian Folk dance performance in a couple weeks. There will be a professional photographer there, so I can just shoot for my own fun in between whatever I'm helping/working on. I am thinking of bringing my GX85 with a 16mm and 50mm. Looked up rentals for the Sigmas, and found lensrentals has the quattro series at a price i would do a week rental just to play around with. So knowing that I'm shooting for fun and don't have to worry about getting the fast action...

Hello all, new to the forum. Looking for advice on the sdQH - anyone in the Boulder, CO area own one? Would love to see one up close and understand the real-world implications better. I am really only interested in landscape photography, so the poor autofocus, slow speeds, and no video doesn’t matter to me. The images, especially on print, and the noise/low light issues are what I’m trying to get better perspective on. If you’re in the area I’d love to buy you coffee and chat all things sdQH....

I do a lot of landscape photography and just flat out prefer taking "wide" shots.  I own the original dp1 and I love it and use it to this day. I can't decide between a new DP0 (around $975 with evf), or a Quattro H + 14mm art lens (around $2700). Please help me justify (or not justify) the $1800 price difference between the two.   The faster 14mm and the increase in image quality due to sensor size appeals to me on paper, but I don't know how that will play out in application. If anyone's...
