About Carl Rytterfalk

Welcome to my blog! I'm Carl Rytterfalk, a swedish photographer who loves everything that is interesting in the world of photography. In 2002 I fell in love with the three layered Foveon sensor and has since then been an addicted user of Sigma cameras. Though I use Canon and Nikon as well. :)

    Strange, the DP1s in the press release looks identical to the DP1. I expected that the controls would be as in the new DP2.

    With regard to Silkypix, anyone cares to translate the japanese info? It looks like a “special edition” of Silkypix for Foveon. How is it going to be distributed?

  2. fiatlux, I was thinking the same thing. I really do hope that it’s at least as fast as the DP2 – buttons isn’t the most important for me. :) As long as I get the new color modes and better color handling in difficult light.

    Regarding the Silkypix, it’s beta. So it’s in trial mode – not implemented natively in “real” Silkypix version yet.

    I tried Silkypix.
    unfortunately it is in Japanese.
    And it’s slow.

    Gave it a look using Wine/Ubuntu. Not knowing Japanese I was mostly experimenting and just clicking on stuff to see what happens. Eventually I got it to lock up. (but it did run longer than Sigma photo Pro)

    Looking forward to an english version. I could use this.

    Many thanks to BiggyDog for the English Menu work around,which I have just installed. I have recently got a Sigma DP2 and will compare the results from Silkypix with Lightroom.
