    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    I am sorry I went to the Sigma Pro Photo 5.5 - never, ever had a problem before with SPP, but now I have - can sometimes not save the picture, it freezes, or what it is.

    I was about to buy the DP1M also, but now I will not - I have an assignment next month and planned to use both together with my D3x, but they demand pictures soon after the event (of course they do) , and I have not time for this problems, sorry to say because I like the pictures A LOT !!!!!


    And yes I did cancel the old SPP ( I recall the name was 5.41, or something about this) 100 % and run a cleaner (Reg.cleaner) and reboted before I updated to 5.5.

    Anything to do ?

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Well, perhaps I fould the problem - I suddenly recalled from this thread here, that there could be troubles in paradise, if you had too many pictures in a map.

    I had about 100 pictures in Jpg and RAW= about 200 and some Tiff.s (diffferent maps in one map), but then I tryed to make a 100 % new map, and then there was not a problem - do not know if it is this, or it is that I also reboted ??

    Just for the information: My pc is very strong and new (7-8 month) - W7 SP1 - 32 RAM - 240 SSD and A LOT of space, so it normally "eats" all.

    I would try removing the old SPP preference files. I'm not sure where they live on Windows, but I am pretty sure they are in files and reg cleaner would not have removed them.

    Thanks: Yes, you could be right, but normally the payed program "reg. mechanic" removes such things, and I do not know how to do that otherwise ??

    Very difficult to get inspired living in Virginia, though I am trying...
    All processed in SPP 5.5 using the Monochrome mode, then brought into PS6 and a little USM and a touch of Silver Efex Pro

    Hello W

    I want to know if the color behaviour of your DP changed. I mean ... changed in good (Browns less red/brown, overall balance, saturation).

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    I can't see any difference in colour rendition at all between fw 1.03 and fw 1.04 on my DP2M.

    Hulyss,

    If your seeing a difference between the DP2M and your new DP3M then it must either be a hardware tweak in the new camera or the lens is causing it. Maybe someone with both cameras will do a direct comparison in the course of time.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Well, I do not have the DP2m any-more but I have load of files out of it so I can compare. Maybe the lens is for something in it but... there is a big difference. When I will have time I will show some comparisons, especially skin tones.

    Why do you not have the DP2M any longer? I would think it a perfect compliment to the 3. ???

    How about using this thread again to post DP2M pictures. For my taste it starts to drift too much towards a "who finds the hair in the soup first" internet chatter. I`m sure if one tries hard enough and looks long enough one "finds" perceived flaws...... .

    Exactly my idea, Retow!

    Starts to look like the Sigma Merrill thread on the FM forum. Almost no Photographs but a for ever going on nagging thread about the pro's and cons of the camera.

    Hello & thank you everyone for your contribution to this thread. I recently obtained DP2M and so far very happy with the results I get with the camera.

    Solent, from Sandy Point, Hayling Island

    This is actually a colour frame but the light was so low in contrast that everything turned monochrome. I enhanced the original frame with soft light in CS3.

    Boat, DP2M, F/4, handheld



    I took this shot also on the D800E. Quite difficult to chose which is the better shot overall. Slightly more detail in the D800E taken with a Zeiss 21mm lens on a tripod, shot but that is about it.

    Quentin, that is gorgeous. If that is about as good as a D800E I know which camera I want to own.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Thanks Louis. There are some other differences, given the different fields of view of the repective lenses etc, but you'd be surprised (or maybe not by now!) how good the DP2M shot is. The D800E is replacing my Hasselblad H4D-50 which gets too lottle use the days. It works well as a studio camera and also to low light stuff, but the DP2M still does its stuff.

    I really liked the D800E it is probably the zenith of the DSLR and it is Nikon which I have used and liked in the past. The access to all that fine glass, especially the manual stuff is marvellous for a system. I was all set to sell all my MF gear (even the film stuff) and get one.

    Then I got the DP2M and for my kind of photographic interest... well the rest is history.

    I'm not even sure I need the DP1M or DP3M as the cropability of the DP2M is increadible (and you can always step back a bit), although I am tempted by the DP3M for macro work.

    It's in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument just over the border into AZ. from Utah.

    You'll need a good 4WD and guide.

    Monument Valley, Canyon De Chelly, Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Monument are all in the same area....northeast quadrant of Arizona/southern Utah. This area holds a lifetime of photographic opportunities.
