With soon 5 Merrill cameras available on the market, Sigma has promised to turn its attention to the software side of its “ecosystem”.

My opinion on Sigma DP2 Merrill

Although there are plenty of DP2 Merrill reviews out there, I still feel like sharing my thoughts about  Sigma’s premium compact. The fact that I used to have the previous model, the DP1s, allows me to evaluate some of its features even better than some well-known reviewers. What’s the first thing you notice about it? ...

Those extra winter pounds

I can’t say if it has anything to do with the cold, but I’ve been craving heavy, unhealthy food lately. Sport seems to be an abstract concept and recently comes down to walking to a shop or a restaurant where I get even more food. I’m doing fine with those extra winter pounds, growing in ...

Bad weather photo subject ideas: cats and food!

I‘d love to grab my tripod and SD1 and take some photos outside, but the weather conditions and light shortage make it impossible.  The only thing I can do I guess is taking my Sigma DP2 Merrill and   using something I come across on my way to work or while shopping as a subject.  There ...

Visiting the marketplace in Zemun with the Sigma DP2 Merrill

I was at the Zemun marketplace today to get some food for the following days. You can find everything there ― from smoked carp to pumpkin pie; two of my co-workers joked that you can even find bird milk there – but most importantly, at least for me, it provides endless opportunities for pictures. So ...

I just couldn’t resist: I bought a Sigma DP2 Merrill

The piggy bank’s empty, but I am ecstatic! I received my new camera tree days ago and believe me it’s not just any camera; it’s DP2 Merril, which I’ve craved for for so long When I switched from Canon and Nikon to SD1, I was actually flirting with the idea of buying a compact camera; ...

Sigma announces 4 new lenses at CP+ 2013!

After all those Sigma news (35 f1,4, 17-70 f2,8-4, 120-300 f2,8, DP3 Merrill, etc.) in the recent months, I assumed that the Bandai lenses and cameras manufacturer is going to take it easy for a while. Boy was I wrong! The Japanese had many more surprise in store at this year’s CP+. Three new lenses ...
