ADVANCED OPERATION
This section explains the application of the more advanced
functions of your camera, when composing the expressions of
your picture.
SETTING THE WHITE BALANCE(WB)
The color of light reflected by an object can vary depending on the
color of the light source illuminating it. For example, a neutral colored
object will reflect reddish light under incandescent lighting, and
greenish light under fluorescent lighting. The human brain is able to
compensate for differences in the color of a light source, allowing us to
see white objects as white, independent of the lighting condition. Film
cameras rely on special color-correcting filters and film types to adjust
for these differences in lighting. Digital cameras, however, are able to
use software to mimic the adjustments made by the brain, so that
colors that appear white to the human eye also appear white in your
photographs.

HISTOGRAM
The histogram is a graph depicting the distribution of brightness values
in the image for each of the three color channels (Red, Green, and
Blue) (The histogram displayed in the Shooting Mode is the distribution
of tones in the image). The horizontal axis shows the brightness level,
with darker pixels towards the left side and brighter pixels toward the
right. The vertical axis shows the proportion of pixels at each level of
brightness.
By examining the histogram of the full image, you can gauge the overall
exposure of that image. You can also use the histogram to determine if
zoomed-in sections of an image are over or under exposed.
This histogram shows that the higher pixel
values are never used in the image,
indicating that the image is underexposed,
and therefore will appear dark. In general,
when the histogram is higher on the left side,
the image is mostly composed of dark
pixels, causing it to appear dark—either
because the image is underexposed or
because it is a dark scene such as night
shot or sunset.
This histogram shows a fairly even
distribution of pixel values, indicating that
the image is well exposed, with good
contrast.
However,
the
histogram
distribution of a well exposed image will
vary greatly depending on the subject.
This histogram shows that many of the pixel
values are at their brightness limit,
indicating that some areas of the image
may be blown out. In general, when the
histogram runs off the right side, the image
will have many white pixels—either because
the image is overexposed or because it is a
bright scene such as the beach or snow.

EXPLANATION OF TERMS
AE
Auto Exposure; by using a built-in exposure meter, the camera determines the
correct exposure value, which is a combination of shutter speed and aperture value.
AE Lock
The camera will fix and memorize the exposure value with AE lock. For example, if a
photographic subject is placed in the center and exposure value of the composition
is fixed, the brightness of the background will not influence the exposure, even if the
composition changes and the subject is moved from the center of a screen. (AE lock
button must be used).
AF
Auto Focus; by using a built-in sensor, camera adjusts the focusing automatically.
AF Lock
In AF shooting mode, you can lock the focus on the main subject. For instance,
compose the desired subject in the center of the viewfinder. With the focus fixed at
the same setting, you can re-compose the picture with the subject off-center and
take pictures. (Please press the shutter button “Half-way” to use this feature with the
Sigma DP2).
Aperture
The lens opening of the iris diaphragm inside the lens. The amount of light, which
strikes the image sensor, is adjusted by the iris diaphragm. The f-number (Focal
Length/Diameter of the Aperture Opening) describes the size of this opening, the
size of the hole can be made larger or smaller. A large aperture (low f-number) gives
bright results and a small aperture (high f-number) gives darker results.
Auto Power-Off
To save battery power, the DP2 camera will automatically turn itself off if it is not
used for a period of time.
CMOS
Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) can perform signal amplication
on a per-pixel basis. Significant current flows only during the switching operation.
Therefore a CMOS image sensor can scan data rapidly, sustain high-speed
operation and consume less energy. Recent technological and production
improvements in digital imaging systems are making CMOS more and more
competitive in terms of image quality and cost.
Color Temperature
The numerical expression of the tone of the light, produced by a light source. The
standard unit for color temperature is degrees Kelvin (K). The sunny daylight used
as a standard near 5600 K. Low color temperature implies warmer more yellow/red
light while high color temperature implies a colder more blue light. The typical color
temperature of Tungsten light is 3200 K grade, a personal computer is 9300 K.
Exposure.
The amount of light reaching the image sensor’s surface. The exposure is controlled
by the combination of aperture and shutter speed.
111
EV
Exposure Value (EV) is a numerical value that expresses the amount of light for a
given exposure, and depends on brightness of the photographic subject and
sensitivity of the film. If a photographic subject is bright, then this numerical value will
be large, and if the subject is dark then this numerical value will be small. If two-times
of light reaches the film surface then the difference in exposure value will be +1, and
if the amount of light is reduced by half, the exposure value changes by -1.
Histogram
The histogram function is a graphic representation of how bright and dark pixels are
distributed in an image. The histogram function enables a precise check on the
exposure of the photo.
ISO Sensitivity
ISO(International Organization for Standardization); refers to the number assigned
to each silver halide film, which indicates film speed or the film's relative sensitivity
to light, the higher the number, the greater photosensitivity and vice versa. Digital
cameras also use standard ISO sensitivity ratings like silver halide films.
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group has established a standard method for
compressing and decompressing the digitized images. If the rate of compression is
high the file size will be small but picture quality will be decreased.
NTSC
National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) video format is primarily used in the
United States, Japan, Canada etc. The NTSC is a standard for television and videos,
which defines a composite video signal with a refresh rate of 60 half-frames (interlaced)
per second. Each frame contains 525 lines and can contain 16 million different colors.
PAL
Phase Alternating Line (PAL) video format, primarily used in Europe, excluding
France, as well as Australia and parts of the Far East. PAL delivers 625 lines at 50
half-frames per second.
RAW
The RAW image format is the data as it comes directly from the image sensor of the
camera. No in-camera processing is performed before transferring the image to
computer.
Shutter Speed
The camera’s shutter opens for a length of time to control the amount of light that
reaches the imaging element. The length of time that shutter blinds are open
allowing light to strike the image sensor is called a shutter speed.
White Balance
The human eye and brain adapt to changes in lighting conditions, not only to intensity,
but also to the color characteristic of the light source, so that colors of the objects
look normal or accurate. For example, a white object will appear white whether it is
viewed under sunlight, tungsten or fluorescent illumination. However, color film or
digital camera must be adjusted, so that colors will be represented accurately, under
different types of illumination. This adjustment is called white balance. The function to
adjust a white balance automatically is called automatic white balance.
112
FILE NUMBERING SYSTEM
Stored data is automatically assigned file numbers from 0001 to 9999.
When data is being reviewed, the file number of each image is
displayed in the right corner on the color LCD monitor (see P.77, 82).
The file number is also incorporated into the filename of the image.
The filename consists of “SDIM” followed by the 4-digit file number and
extension. For example: image number 0023 will be stored in the file
SDIM0023.X3F.
All DP2 image files will be stored to ###SIGMA folder of the DCIM
folder in the card.
●
When [Adobe RGB] is selected from [
Shooting Menu] (P.26) →
[Color space], the filename will consist of “_SDI” instead of “SDIM”.
●
File numbering can be continuous, or can be reset every time an
empty card is detected. The File Numbering can be set from
[ Camera Settings] (P.26) → [File Numbering].
FILE NUMBERING OPTIONS
Continuous *
Numbering is continuous. The first file number
assigned on an empty card will be one higher than
the last assigned number. (If the inserted card
contains DP2 images with file numbers greater than
the last assigned number, file numbering will
continue with one higher than the highest file
number on the card.)
Auto Reset
Each time an empty card is inserted, or all images
on the current card are deleted, the file number will
reset to its default value of 0001. (If the inserted
card already contains DP2 images, the file number
will not be reset).
113
LCD SLEEP AND AUTO POWER OFF
