Summary: . . .After writing a 6 line email to SIGMA about a problem I was having, A Rory tech wrote back asking many ?'s I had forgot to include the ERROR code (d7 1E). In my Second Email I only wrote, "ALSO, THE ERROR : d7 1E, is a reacquiring error. The next day I received "Marcus please send your camera to our service department for further review." Now waiting to hear from O'donoghue . . .08.17.07,10:29AM/per UPS they received on 08.08.07.
Summary: Technology is a tool for us to get some artistic results. The more camera is capable of, more we know about it, better we learn use it,then better the final product. Much water on DSLR market passed since SD9 and SD10. The DSLRs of today are very quick, very precise and full of smart features. The technical image quality is much less concern. Still, many in this generation that grew with film cameras in hands have tender feelings for film look and feel.
Summary: I have followed the Foveon chips since its first release... I WANT a Foveon X3 chip in my dSLR. But, release delayed from Nov 2006 to Dec 2006 to March 2007? 14MP, 4.6MP, 2.1MP, or 1Mp images are the shooting options? Where's a solid 6-10MP choice? Where's the slow-sync option for flash? How about rubber-sealed body to help keep dust and water out (like D80)? What about usable shooting "modes" (landscape, night, face-recognition/portrait)?
Sigma SD 14 - sehr problematisch-wieder zurückgegeben
2 January 2009
Summary: Habe die Sigma SD 14 eine Woche im Bundle mit dem 18-200mm ausführlich getestet (MM: 288,00 € beides zusammen !) Habe mich auch vorher genau über Stärken und Schwächen informiert, bin seit über 50 Jahren ambitionierter Hobbyfotograf - und kann die obigen Testberichte nur in wenigen Punkten nachvollziehen.
