    I'm hoping someone else has had this experience or there is someone else who has seen this behavior.

    I was shooting with my DP1M this morning - a grey morning.

    I had the histogram display on and was shooting at 200 ISO in A mode. While I was adjusting the histogram to the right I got highlight blinkies! They worked on about 10-12 shots and then no longer after I switched my camera off. This camera doesn't have that feature... was it the last firmware update, I wondered?

    My attempt to research or replicate this behavior have all come up blank.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior on their Sigma DPx?

    I came across exactly the same thing with my DP1M. Worked for a few hours, and then it never worked again.

    And, in addition, I find that my DP1M sometimes resets the date/time if the batteries are taken out for a period of time (back to default 2012). Has this happened to anyone else?

    I had them on my DP2M this afternoon. I just got the camera and was a bit surprised by seeing them.
