A great wild place. The confluence of Bayou Chemin-a-hault with Bayou Bartholomew in Morehouse Parish, Louisiana, taken on the Sigma SD1 Merrill with the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 wide to short telephoto zoom lens

Here’s a compatibility tip regarding the Sigma SD1 Merrill and Windows 10. I have just upgraded to Windows 10 from version 8 and was initially horrified to find that my computer wouldn’t recognize the camera when attached by cable to the USB port as it use to do in version 8. The good news is that the  Windows 10 operating system does recognize the CF card when it is placed in an external card reader.

 

So, if you were worried about whether or not you could still use the camera with Windows 10, then here’s your answer. Sigma’s Photo Pro 5.5 software also works in Windows 10.
