    Take a look at this thread: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/other-ca...i-thought.html
    Well, I am relatively new to Sigma, having bought the DP2M last year. Can someone explain the luminance feature in SPP and why i would want to adjust it? Is it just another way of saying, "Smoothing out the noise?" I typically use Aperture priority with Ozzy due to trying to keep his nose and eyes sharp. If I shoot street, I also use Aperture Priority. I use Manual when I want to fine tune, which I think the DP3M needs more than the DP2M. The DP3M seems to be better in manual, but only if I can see the LCD screen. Being older and having not the best eyesight, I rely heavily on the AF focus. Speaking of which: What size of focus are do you guys use? Is it better to make it the smallest or the largest? I also use center weighted metering. Is that better than spot? Sometimes different cameras perform better in certain modes. I really wish that we could have a book on Sigma DP Meriills, SPP and all the tricks. Maybe we should all come together and share cheat notes, make an eBook and sell it to the masses? I'm sure we could all contribute. Isn't that a great idea? then we can go to one source to find out what the tricks are to using this camera settings and SPP. I don't think there is enough info out there, and it's sporadic at best in finding it. Thankfully, some Sigma users have shared their techniques. Because of the Foveon sensor the camera works differently than the bayer sensor cameras I've used. I am not a techie, and find all of that stuff a bit confusing, but when a techie figures out why the foveon does certain things and then adjusts their shooting to that and shares a technique online, I am very happy. As of using -0.3 setting on my DP3M, it's a guesstimate. Like, I said, I'm not a techie, but this camera "seems" to slightly overexpose. Maybe I am wrong?

    With same sensor size DOF is a matter of magnification and f-stop, not of brand,

    Compared to the DP2m I find the AF of the DP3m weaker, about aperture priority mode I dont know, I allways shoot with manual settings.
    Good to know. I will try shooting in manual mode, not manual focus though. It's a bit hard here in AZ. The LCD screen ability just disappears in bright daylight.

    Any idea if there is a optical viewfinder available for the DP3M? (Of another brand that will fit on top of flash socket?)

    DP3M = A........MA ....ZING

    almost transformational, (with all it's many quirks ....... I cannot call them faults, it would be too much of an insult ...... they are negative characteristics)

    I must get the other two bodies before more people discover this secret ...... at under £350 they are a "steal"

    my Mac wouldn't open it as it said "it does not recognise the identity of the developer" .........changing security and privacy settings seems to open it ..... but!!!

    seems to be creating a few "problems" already ......

    took almost as long to fire up as taking 30 images and writing them to card does

    "lets not make it easy Sigma when you can make it hard"

    why do they keep doing this?

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Hello BillN ! This is at my summer house 20 km south west of Roanne. Sure it was not Air Force, no noise before, no noise after. Such dark smoke trail would have been produced only in post combustion (so, usually some noise produced). No wind this day. It is clearly something burning in the atmosphere and the shoot is at 1/6 of a second.

    Better crop :



    As you can see, while we clearly see the smoke trail and the tiny burning line, we would have seen at least some details out of an air-plane or something like that. Can be a missile test thought

    There can be a problem, that the output becomes quite addictive and is not always easy to revert back, whatever decent camera's one has. ; )

    For me it's not about reverting back to my other decent camera, but a never leaving wishful thinking about a full frame Foveon sensor inside of it and Zeiss/Leica lens possibilities.

    I understand. Being that we are at the mercy of the camera makers decisions, lets hope one day soon they wake one morning and find the challenge inspiring and creative enough for them to engage in such a project. Maybe a f35mm size sensor even if not profitable and broke even would raise the companies profile a few more levels if what I believe would become an iconic item, which companies aught not to shy away from, if there is any possibility of such an outcome. Sigma I am sure will have had many thoughts themselves along these lines. .

    I too enjoy shooting with my Merrills, but as of late have been tied down with other photographic duties, but I do look forward to returning to my "Three Little Bricks" as soon as I can.

    Just wanted to say, "thanks for the eye candy."

    Re: Sigma DP3M

    Thank's very much Darr, encouragement is always welcome I tend to rotate around my 'Blad+Imacon, Fuji's and the Merrills so action on Getdpi tends to be cyclic! (along with my 4x5 archive activities, not a big fan of scanning).
