New Firmware for DP1 Merrill and DP2 Merrill - X3 magazine

Sigma released a firmware update for the DP1 and DP2 Merrill cameras. It brings the features that were introduced on the DP3 Merrill to these two cameras. It also corrects a couple of (minor) bugs.

Both cameras now feature the Face Detection mode and have the possibility to shoot in monochrome mode. Both in RAW and in RAW+JPG. The color information is still conserved in the RAW file. This means you can shoot it as a Black & White camera. But if you change your mind later you can still convert them into color photos using Sigma Photo Pro. – The RAW file still shows up as color RAW in third party software like Iridient Developer 2. –
