Lightroom/Camera Raw: Sigma SD1 - when will the Merrill sensors be supported, please!

It's 2 years since the SD1 was first shown, and 1 1/2 years since a family of Sigma bodies using the 15.4/16Mp sensor began to fill out. There are now thousands of DP and SD Merrill bodies out there, and yet Lightroom/ACR still have no support for them.

Third party support does exist from one small developer, so it can't be that hard to process these files - please, support these cameras or give a definitive explanation for the lack of support so users can pursue the right angle to get support.

Could Adobe consider half-baked support to the extent that at least the asset management capability of Lightroom would work.. ie. basically be able to only preview thumbnails (from embedded jpegs) and read the exif? That at least should be easy..

Please incorporate support in Lightroom for Sigma Foveon sensor cameras..


The Sigma cameras, particularly the Merrill cameras, are not currently supported by Lightroom.

As a person who shoots with a Sigma DP1M, it's annoying not to have support for this camera. The Merrill cameras have been on the market for a long time now. Support for these cameras is long overdue.

Can I add my plea to Adobe for support for the (in my case) DP2 Merrill? It produces fantastic results and I am considering making more use of the Sigma camera and lens family generally but I am put off by Sigma PhotoPro and the slow hassle of converting to TIFF's for editing in Photoshop/Lightroom.
Sigma have told me that they have given Adobe all the necessary data - come on Adobe, what's the prob?
If Adobe absolutely refuse, I suppose that we will have to bear with PhotoPro and harass Sigma to improve PhotoPro. This is Adobe losing out on an opportunity.
Is there a third party raw conversion programme which is a viable alternative?

I don't understand the problem. For a huge company as Adobe it should be easy to develop the support of Quattro files. Maybe they don't see the quality of the quattro's. Too bad. The quality of Quattro's are one of the beste camera's ever.
Adobe; Please show me that you are a professional company.

Please tell me: Is it really so difficult to support the outstanding Sigma camera files?
I'm waiting for years and I have no more time and patience to wait.

Eric, maybe you can make it a New Years Resolution that 2016 will finally be the year that X3F files are supported (all of them, from Merrill, Quattro, Sigma cameras). That would just be so wonderful in a year that is shaping up to be rough (stock market crashing, election politics, etc.).

This has probably been asked before, but it would be wonderful if Adobe could support (convert) X3F files from Sigma cameras. Fans of the "foveon look" like myself have been waiting and waiting... Please let us know how we can help move this process along, if at all.

Affinity Photo handles handles RAW from my SD1 Merrill fantastically. Adobe has become another of those photo editors I have installed, but almost never use.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Sigma dp2 Quattro is not supported by DNG-Converter and Camara Raw.

Hello to you, I have to convert .x3f-Files to DNG using DNG-Converter. In the Information about the supported cameras is to find: "Sigma dp2" but the Rawfiles from the Sigma dp2 Quattro can not be done. Could it be that the support means the Sigma dp2 Merill? So it would be very nice you will include the Sigma dp2 Quattro (then this will work also for the dp1 Quattro, dp3 Quattro and dp0 Quattro). Thank you.
