    Sigma double resolution in Sigma Photo Pro

    Yes the results are certainly impressive. i did some crops at double resolution to see how it compared with my RX100 top end digital zoom (which i really must find out what zoom multiple it is. Certainly cropping to give an equivalent 150mm focal length gives impressive results. Who needs...

    Sigma the DP viewfinder for DP2M

    Has anyone got any experience of using a viewfinder on the DP2M? Was also considering an LCD screen loupe. It's really for use in bright light conditions

    Sigma double resolution in Sigma Photo Pro

    Never noticed it before but I am able to 'double' the resolution when i save as a TIFF (prob same for JPEG too). so my pixel count goes to 9000 x 6000 roughly. Darned big files too!! 136mb. Now the question is, is it pure interpolation / extrapolation or is this the special sensor thats...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    I viewed the pics above on a large iMac screen. There may be bias creeping in here but the dp shots at least equal if not better. They seem to have greater definition. Was out last weekend taking shots of a local manor house and old parish church. The detail captured is amazing and still...

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    Andrew. the test was a quick test in between the constant rain showers we seem to having here. the focus locked on, so I know there wasn't an issue. trust me, the RAW on my computer looked a lot sharper, but certainly could have done with some more in LR4. When I have the time I will take a...

    Sigma DP2 Merrill versus Nikon D800

    Xuereb, if I could ebay you our rain, you could have it for free. It is positively biblical here in the West Country. bought the DP2M two days ago, and I completely agree with everything you say and will take your advice. A simple comparison I did just blew my mind.

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    Yep, the DP2M has its shortcomings. I bought it purely for landscape work. My Sony RX100 is my pocket camera for everything. my X100 for the pure joy of shooting street photography and landscapes. but the Siggy for slow, considered, high detailed, still life. It was the image detail I...

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    The first shot was the X100. This one is the Sigma, but I have had to halve the size of the jpeg so I could upload it. Hopefully it serves a purpose

    Sigma DP2M versus Fuji X100

    I ran a quick test between the two cameras. Each set at ISO100 and f8. Please excuse the difference in focal length. The focal point for each shot was exactly the same, the centre of the picture. I've taken only the centre third of each to compare. Quite a difference. No sharpening...
