    That's also one reason why many people think Quattro has "better colors". It's mostly because its auto white balance is superior.
    And they could manage to make the Merrill processing for Mac users slower with SPP 6.x compared to SPP 5.5.3. Is this the plan, to make the dp/sd Merrills look worse?

    In my opinion it is an extremely unprofessional and consumer unfriendly attitude from Sigma to drop support for these cameras.
    Not too long ago, the sd1 was an extremely expensive flagship and "medium format" competitor. Now it's a dead horse. (at least for the Sigma company)
    Sorry for the broken links to my photographs due to Dropbox policy changes.

    It's too late, the damage is done. On one side you have the guys who say :

    " Quattro is fantastic ya know ... I know someone from foveon who told me it is the future ya know... and I never seen a boss from such compagny speaking like that ya know... Kasuto is sooo cute ya know... "

    Communication won !! Damage is done.

    On the other side you have the real users, not cat shooters but pro users who can compare and foresee vividly where can end a technology if correctly used. But those guys have been disavowed ya know ...

    Screw sigma.

    woke up in the mornin, the Merrill dream has gone

    Hulyss, see it from the other side, its not surprising that they stopped the Merrills, its surprising that they ever built them.

    Similar Samsung, instead of improving their real cool sensor technology the burn handys.^^

    Happy New Year

    and no one else still does! So, thank you Sigma for providing us with cameras based on a Merrill sensor. I'm happy to to have an opportunity to shoot with DPM series.
    Happy New Year!

    Hey, this is not a dp0 hate thread

    Excuse me, but Mr. Merrill's dream was the Quattro, not the Merrill.

    I would rather this thread not degenerate into M vs Q nonsense. please. It has been a very nice thread to enjoy dp0 images.

    Damn DP0Q. Take it out and it creates some stellar results.

    Jewish Cemetery in Brady Street Whitechapel (1761-1858), Dawn today, used a Lee 0.9 hard grad to balance the sky. Exported direct from SPP6.5



    This one I processed is LR and using a recipe in NIK ColorEffex


    SPP-->TIFF-->LR-->JPEG, handheld.

    Coton Manor, Northants.

    Went to see the Snowdrops and Hellebores. Bit underwhelming. The Hellebores are better in my garden. Took a few pics but it was, as ever, a grey day. This is Coton Manor, a minor C17 pile of no great merit.

    Basingstoke Canal. A bit of tranquility away from the horrors of Mytchett/Ash Vale/Aldershot. Naturally, being a Quattro, this photo enjoys a bit of highlight clipping..... Three grabbed snaps and stitched. Situation normal with the dp0Q continuing to delight and frustrate.

    Chastleton House, Oxfordshire and near Moreton-in-March but more accurately named Moreton-in-the-Minge. A lovely and interesting Jacobean pile, lived in until the mid 1950s but now owned by the National Trust as the increasingly impoverished owners reluctantly accepted the cash was running out. Yet again a grey day and bravely, I took some indoor, low-light (ooooh noooo!) shots with the ever fickle dp0Q.

    I think the interior shots have coped better with the colours than the exterior ones - and they look very good - especially the stair shot, very nice indeed.

    Agreed. It's tempting to say it was an overcast day and the sensor didn't get enough light hence the building, grass and daffodil colours are a bit off but I don't have the energy to faff around with the colours. The light indoors was shockingly poor and as you say the colours look better. Hey ho!

    Maybe a B & W?

    The b&w version looks much better ... At least, the sensor got it right for the textures

    Perserving with the dp0 Quattro... Oxford canal at Banbury (a once lovely market town ruined by town planners). Another gloomy day.
