A Xitek forum member has designed an EVF for the Sigma DP Merrill series cameras. It seems that the image displayed in the EVF is a direct output from the USB hub of the camera. According to some replies in the post, some EVFs have already been distributed to other users on the forum.

    Here’s a link to the EVF they are selling. I couldn’t tell you if the store actually ships internationally. I don’t have a sigma myself, but some other people out there might find this useful. The comments seem to indicate that it is a decent enough EVF.

      They are selling second hand items and it seems they are adaptable to old DP series. Taobao don´t sell outside China mainland.

      • Zos Xavius

        Maybe an e-bay seller in mainland china can pick up on this and export for Sigma users…

      • kickars

        Taobao does ship outside China. In fact, if you read Chinese, there’s an option for you to choose overseas shipping for this particular item.

    • Thanks for the link.

      • Zos Xavius

        Anytime. I found it interesting that they can get a feed out of the USB port so was trying to read through the discussion thread to get more details and found that.

    about $100, look like a good investment to bring my DP2 back into life again. I haven’t use it much due to battery drain and no EVF (OVF is not good enough due to paralax). This could be the perfect solution.

    Any commentary on the quality of Nissin flashes? I do not know the brand.

    • Remedy

      If you don’t know Nissin then you probably got into photography yesterday. The quality and performance are great.
      He doesn’t know the brand… these people…

        I’ve been shooting since ’73. I don’t know jack about Nissin either.

          You must have heard about using flash in photography yesterday, right?

            Well, let’s see. In the 70s, I used Nikon, Braun, Sunpak, and Vivitar speedlights. Today I still use Nikon, Sunpak, and Vivitar speedlights, along with various studio monolights.

            Nissin? Never heard of them, because I was well covered already, and didn’t need to.

          • Kynikos

            +1 for Vivitar speedlight. Value for money.

    • knappe duivel

      Nissin is best known for their instant noodles. Remedy probably got into the kitchen yesterday.

    230,000 dots EVF powered by a AA battery. Nice try, way to go…

    • booh

      Correction: it works on a RCR123a battery.

  • Spy Black

    I’m surprised no one’s made a generic EVF for cameras with a hot shoe.
