    - Even sharper images
    - Even greater dynamic range
    - Even better color rendition
    - No more yellow biased skin tones on Auto
    - Long exposures WB adjustmented for shutter speed
    - Lots of new WB presets and options
    - Matched monochrome output option with tinting
    - SD9 and SD10 specific corrections

  3. Both samples have a different but incorrect colour shift....

  4. Didn't you say they were good as they were????? Apparently Sigma
    disagrees with you as well.

    The SP2.1 version's auto color balance (left sample) can still screw
    up skin color. Besides, there are no whites of the eye in the same
    shot, so we can't see how blue they are.

  5. Still crappy colors. Kinda dinky pics there, George. How come it's OK
    for you to post links to non-native size pics but berate the rest of us
    for doing it.
    Oh yeah...you're an asshole.

    Sigma should sue you for making them look so bad.

    Simga? Let's hope these are better cameras than Sigma's poor efforts. Oh
    hang on ... anything is better than Sigma.

    Also, why are they exactly the same after I cut the green a tad, and
    boost the red and blue a tad in the SPP2.0 image?

    Fear not; SPP2.2 will have a feature that no other DSLR's native
    software has; flesh masking. The user draws a red mask over all areas
    that are flesh, and then enters the ethnicity of the subject in a text
    box, so that the software can render the flesh as flesh color. If there
    are multiple flesh subjects of varying ethnicities, then you must mask
    them in separate conversions and layer them in photoshop.

    Dear lord, given the choice, I'd stick with the slightly yellow cast on the
    right rather than the blue/green mess on the left.

  14. The X3F you used is freely available on Sigma's website. OOOOPS, you
    got caught red handed in a lie!!! Here is the X3F of the sample you
    posted...
    http://www.sigma-photo.com/Images/sd9samples/JenniferandBlackjack.X3F

    Anyone can reproduce what the picture really looks like, by
    downloading the new software from Sigma and doing an Auto process,
    right here...
    http://www.sigma-photo.co.jp/english/downloads/software.html

    It must really stink to be so desperate that you have to lie to feel
    good about the ancient technology you cling to, for fear of change and
    improvement. Feel free to stop posting here now that I proved you are
    a dishonest person. You'll never live this down. Let it be known
    "Bart the liar" has arrived. I always knew that you knew I was right,
    but now it is there for all the world to see.

    On this terribly embarrising note, you have conceeded this argument
    forever, and nothing you can say or do can help you recover from lying
    to make "your case." Bart van der Wolf just said, "Foveon is better,
    I know it, and I can't do anything but lie about it."

    Everyone else who posted so far fell for your lie, good job, you
    proved they are all cluless.

  16. What a shame that is all you can come up with. Seems you've finally
    come to grips with the fact that Foveon is way ahead of Canon.

  18. It'll actually ship with a special keyboard that issues an electric
    chock when a lemming repeats a lie told by the Canon fearful, like
    Bart just did and you fell for it.

    He made the mistake of using freely available images, see for yourself
    who is lying and who is telling the truth by downloading the X3F image
    and the software, and doing the processing yourself...

    I'm sure we won't be hearing from Bart again. You should acknowledge
    that your comments about Foveon are rooted in ignorance as well. This
    is a bad day for blind followers.
