DP1s x3f and Photomatix Pro


New Member
I wanted to use my x3f's in Photomatix but it didn't work.
I use a DP1s camera.

But Photomatix CAN handle x3f files from the sd14. Is there a difference between the files?

I think there might be...nothing concrete...but I think the DP1s and SD15 files are more closely related than the SD14...make sure you have the new Photomatix 4.0 ... I did not find anywhere where it states it supports the SD15...but it was only released 9/2010....

If you find more on this I would be interested in please post here..

Photomatix FAQ states that supported are Sigma SD9, SD10 and SD14 cameras.

There is difference between files for sure, although DP1(s) files should be usable (at least in fixed WB modes - AWB/CWB data have different structure). Maybe Photomatix behaves like SilkyPix - images from all cameras not directly supported are just discarded.

Maybe you could use 16bit tiff files then?
