    2023-07-27 21:57:13 UTC
    It’s been quite some time since I’ve touched on my Sigma cameras. Specifically, my DP1 and DP2 Merrill cameras. I used to have the DP3 Merrill. But in a fit of mad desperation, I sent it to MPB in exchange for a pittance. I needed the money at the time…

    I’ve spent the past few weeks taking a break from my One Camera One Lens experiment with the Fujifilm X100V. While I intended to go back to it, I blundered into something extremely interesting: Sigma Foveon cameras. I’ll try not to be too technical but it’s worth taking the time…
