  1. Resolved: Can confirm 1.7.1.404RC2 has full control over noise removal, especially chroma noise (working since recent betas: thank you so much), and is fully usable now on Sigma Merrill cameras. Also, only as of 404RC2 is EXIF and focus reliably consistent. Outstanding: BW images still open as colour: no benefits from in-camera BW captured images. Additionally, some BW images shot at higher than base ISO open like linear exposure (super dark). Quick test images (apologies for quality): 6745, ISO100, BW: in 1.7.1.367 and .404RC2 has EXIF and focus info, but recent prior betas were partially missing EXIF & focus metadata. In all versions, these open as colour (should be BW). 6742, ISO800, BW: Very difficult trying to extract a workable image from these RAWs (shot higher than base ISO). Opens fine in other RAW editors. Why Not Use Normal Colour to BW (Post-processing Conversion): The key issue behind this is that the Foveon Merrill can capture the full spectrum at every single 'pixel' (photosite), and output it in BW (like a Leica M Monochrom). No demosaicing is required (or ever wanted). When these are shot as BW in the camera, Affinity Photo opens them as normal colour images, and loses all their benefits. For instance, Foveons also normally capture full spectrum at every 'pixel', and when all treated as BW, you can get 3 times as much sampling per pixel as the monochrome Leica, for improved noise. See earlier post (Issue #1): https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80333-med-resolution-images-auto-upsampled-to-high-bw-images-import-as-colour/ SDIM6745.X3F SDIM6742.X3F
  2. Really excited to see the activity supporting X3F files: thank you immensely for all these efforts. I think there's been a small oversight in packaging the 1.8.4.665 Photo Beta, because when you open an X3F file, it immediately crashes to desktop (even before fonts are loaded, etc.). As a control, I also retried the most current non-beta Affinity Photo (1.8.3.641), and that can still open X3F files without crashing out. I tried this new Affinity Photo Beta using X3F RAW images taken using: Max resolution Low resolution B&W Taken with a Merrill sensor Taken with an older SD14 Sigma. I tried manually browsing and opening the varied test set of files from within Affinity Photo, as well as using Windows Explorer's "Open with..." and choosing both 'Affinity Photo Beta' and 'Affinity Photo'. The issue is consistent for all these (above) X3F files opened with this newest beta. But even with a CTD, I'm still ecstatic for the developer attention after all this time.
  3. This issue pertains to the Sigma dp0 Quattro which I own, and almost certainly also pertains to these other Sigma cameras on the Supported list: dp1 Quattro, dp2 Quattro, dp3 Quattro, sd Quattro. The problem is the same in Affinity Photo 1.4.3 and 1.5 Beta 6, installed on my Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2012 with Sierra OS. I want to thank the Dev team for tackling Sigma cameras at all. I know other Sigma camera owners are also grateful, as hardly anyone is tackling the Sigma X3F raw files in their raw processors, and the Sigma software is slow, ungainly and has very limited features. I also encourage the Dev team to tackle the current-model Quattro cameras I listed above, before tacking older Sigma cameras. THE PROBLEM: the rendered output has a very poor appearance when zoomed in. Even though the files are the full resolution, they look as if a 'coarse effect' or a 'low-resolution overlay effect' has been applied. The effect is so severe that the files really are unusable for Sigma camera owners. I have posted sample images including comparison with the straight-out-of-camera JPEG images, here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58608616 Please compare the camera JPEG with the Affinity file at 100% to see the magnitude of the issue. I am calling this a bug because, even though Affinity Photo 'works', it produces something unusable due to image quality issues. thanks
  4. I get a black photo when opening a DNG file of a RAW photo, shot with my Canon 80D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens, in Affinity Photo for iPad. See enclosure. Is DNG not supported?
  5. Since the recent update I can import RAW files. Thanks for that! :) The Canon 80D RAW photos I tested with Affinity Photo for iPad that I shot with the 55-250mm STM are of high quality. The Canon 80D RAW photos taken with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens are of very poor quality when opened in Affinity Photo on my iPad Pro 12.9". See enclosed example. The colors are wrong, there is a lot of yellow in the highlights. Is this a bug?
  6. Good morning I noticed an obvious difference of tone by opening the same X3F raw file with Sigma Photo Pro and Affinity, which may be the problem? Trying to change settings in the sRGB color profile to ProPhoto RGB course the situation improves but is not solved. Lorenzo
  7. Hi Affinity Photo Team, When I open X3F files from my Sigma DP2 Merrill, I am met with green tint all over some photos or at outer circular areas around the center. Am I doing it wrong? Is there anything I can do for work around at the moment? If this could be fixed, it would be really awesome. n
  8. Hello, I'm HalbLeiter. Today, I experienced strange problem in the EXIF of the image I've taken. I'm using Nikon Df and SIGMA Art 24-35mm f/2.0, and the images were taken with the RAW(.NEF) format. When I opened these images with the Affinity Photo, the lens data were shown (ex. focal length, aperture) but the lens maker and model were not shown. I also made questions to the lens maker(SIGMA) and camera maker(NIKON). Answer from SIGMA: This problem is related with the camera maker. Maybe the camera maker have no information about the newly released lens on the look-up table. However, we don't have permission to tweak the firmware on the camera. Please ask to the camera maker. Answer from NIKON: In original, we(NIKON) are not supporting 3rd party accessories such as lenses, batteries and speedlights. In other case, when the camera body cannot recognizes the lens, the lens maker is updating their firmware to make recognizable. Please ask to the camera maker. How do you think about this? _DSC7569.zip
  9. I'd like to to know if Affinity accepts the raw files- X3F- from a Sigma Quattro dp2. I'm especially interested in local adjustments. If not, do you have plans to include it in your list of raw files anytime in the near or not so distant future ? Thanks
