    Hi Robert, welcome to the party!

    In my opinion, the DP2M is just about the finest camera for stitched panoramas, particularly if used in combination with a compact pano head.

    Thanks Quentin!

    I would agree and I had already prepared the arrival of the DP2M with a Panosaurus, which I find is a small and handy unit.

    Are you going to make your Cuban series available as a book?
    I think the images are wonderful.

    Yes I should get behind the computer and make a book. I probably will, if I can find the time, and make it a blurb publication.

    Leigh, Thank you so much!

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Day off today, so rather dull and still fu.. cold,got out my tripod and the NodalNinja and took a pano of my "lofty" 1st floor at my home:

    The pano is a 58 (sic) sitch, its dimensions are 226,5 MP, 28704x7892, file size (16 bit) 1,83 Gig - had to bring it down to 10000x2749 to post it. The detail, you have to believe me, is incredible. We should have cleand up the place

    Jim, yes its a58 images stitch (PtGui pro) , the file is really big as is the detail. At 300dpi it can be printed at 1m x 3m - 40 x 120 inch with no magnification.....

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Is that a single horizontal layer with the camera in a vertical position or both horizontal and vertical stitching. I am just trying to wrap my mind around a 58 image stitch for a room. I usually do a room in 4-6 images.

    You must have a bunch of overlap of images right? The Nodal Ninja must of been used without using its stops is this correct?

    I don't do many pano's and only had a trial of the PtGul software and let it go because I figured what I do I can do in CS6 but on my MAC I think my CS6 would work for a week straight with a 56 85mp Tiff image stitch. Sorry for all the questions but I am trying to get a grasp of this concept and understand why 56 images(especially 56 DP2m images at that)

    Angry Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    A week ago I got the DP2M and it's been great…until now. Earlier today I could no longer open SPP 5.5.0. So, I placed it in the trash (on a Macbook); downloaded 5.5.1 and installed hoping to resolve the issue… still can open it - I get a "SIGMA Photo Pro quit unexpectedly." error from mountain lion. Tried using Google to find resolution with no luck. I'm hoping someone can suggest something or direct me to another forum or site that might suggest how to approach the problem. I've restarted my machine and tried many times with the same results. Prior to this I only had occasional problems.
    Thanks for any help.

    If I were you, I'd trash 550 and any files or folders with the word Sigma in it, trash 551 all associated files and folders, re-start the machine. Re-install 551....and pray.

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    @JIM DE:

    The Pano is a multi row stiching with 12 images per row (horizontal) and 4 rows (vertical).
    Camera in portrait on the NodalNinja. The NN has the stop plate with 18 stops /360 degree (if i remember that right) - that gives an overlap of ca. 25 to 30 %. This are the normal settings i always use with the NN.The vertical overlap is more than 30%, i estimated on the cam screen not very accurate.

    I did not plan the pano this big, but it took 12 shots per row, so....

    Here is a screenshot of PtGui:


    Pano PtGui by W.Utsch, on Flickr

    As you can see i cut off the top when rendering the final pano. If you would use the top part as well the file is even bigger. I rendered a QTVR including the top part.

    I had the same problem on a Window machine. Got that same error for a month's. I actually never solved it, that I know of. Cleaned all the reg files and everything what I could find related to SPP. Runned two viruskillers scanning my whole computer. Nothing found!

    Suddenly it worked again with no reason or what so ever that I can understand!
    That's why I not yet updated to the latest version, afraid that it will screw up again.

    Luckely I never had that problem on my laptop.

    My only advise clean up the files as much as you can, run a good viruskiller, if they exist for Mac's, and try download again.
    And pray it will suddenly run again like mine did.
    It is a situation that does not give you much confidence in the software

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    Thank you W.Utsch for spending the time answering my questions....... it is truly a excellent image but I never would of thought it took 4 verticals high to capture.

    I have never tried anything near that in pano's ... most I ever did was 2 rows and that was just to try the software out.

    Thanks again......

    Re: Sigma DP2 Merrill shots

    You're welcome Jim.
    Two more words on the pano:
    With a little more precision with the vertical shift, 3 rows of images could have been enough to capture the whole scene.(i just did not care).

    The closer your objects are, the more pics you need in a pano. For landscapes e.g. with no big foreground, one or max. two vertical rows are most of the time enough (Cam in portrait)

    Having just acquired the DP2M, I went to Boston on Friday to shoot some architectural images. I was delayed by being unable to open SPP until today. These images are each about 50% crops - perhaps I need a DP3M as well.

    I saw a thread recently about this, but can't remember where
    It said you had to deleted the file: Library/Preferences/com.sigmaphoto.photopro.plist as well as the Application and then reinstall. It worked for me at the time, so you never know...

    Just remembered, there was also something in Library/Application Support/SIGMA PhotoPro/ that needed deleting as well. I think it was settings.xml and the .LensData folder.

    Thanks snowy. I looked in the Library/... directories and no files/folders with "SIGMA" in the name can be found. By erasing a few images, I now seem to be back in business, at least some of the time as it takes several tries to open SPP.

    Interior, St Mary's Church, Radnage Buckinghamshire. The font in the picture was discovered buried in a farmer's field nearby and is probably of Saxon origin.



    BTW: I've never owned a digital camera that can handle this kind of dynamic range. Either the window would be lost or the shadows too deep.

    BTW: I've never owned a digital camera that can handle this kind of dynamic range. Either the window would be lost or the shadows too deep.
    I now also own a Nikon D800E and everyone raves about its dynamic range, which is very good, but not a patch on the highlight recovery of the DP2M

    Another architectural shot from Boston. This and 2 of the last set are of the Stata building designed by Frank Gehry (this and one of the previous ones are reflections and part of a series titled "Reflections on Gehry").
