Hi, I'm new


I joined this forum last month but I didn't post. Sorry for that.
I'm not used to speak english so please excuse my poor presentation.

I bought a second hand Sigma SD14 with 18-50 EX Macro lens.
I love this camera, it can make amazing pictures.

It's not a perfect camera. Long exposure can make very noisy pictures. 50 or 100 ISO can produce very beautiful pictures but above 400 ISO pictures are very noisy.

Any way I really love this camera, it can procude very unique photos.

I start with a Nikon D60 (broken last year :sad:) I really liked this camera. Now I have also a second hand Canon 500D (I don't like this camera) and sometimes I use my ... :blush: Nokia N95.

I never go outside without my SD14. I have also a second lens for the SD14 a 70-300 mm F4-5.6 DG Macro.

I make many photos. I'm not very good but I'm trying to improve.

That's all,


David....Hello...and Post some pictures here...everyone will give you great feedback..

Good Luck...Tony C. :z04_cowboy:
Good feedback Depend to the quality of the photo, i hope. Or we are here to attach photo and learn nothing?

Thank you.

I'll post some photos but in small resolution (400x400 max) I hope the pictures will be watchable. Anyway if needed I can provide higher resolution.


Welcome to the club. I'm also trying to find a way to use the SD14 for longer exposures without noise. Let me know if you discover something!
