Sigma dp2 Quattro

 

The Sigma dp2 Quattro is a strange-looking camera that captures images with an incredible amount of detail, but it requires patience and discipline to get great results.

Superb image quality at low ISO. Bright, sharp rear LCD. Dual control dials. Quick Set menu system.

Slow operation. Lens lacks image stabilization. Outdated Raw conversion software. Funky design. No built-in EVF or add-on option. No video support. Lacks built-in flash.

The rear LCD is 3 inches in size with a 920k-dot resolution. It's plenty sharp, and I had no problems using it outdoors under bright sunlight. There's no way to add an EVF, but Sigma does sell an optical viewfinder that matches the field of view of the...

Sigma DP2 Quattro Review

 

The Sigma DP2 Quattro is a compact camera with a newly developed 39-megapixel APS-C sized Foveon X3 Quattro sensor. The DP2 Quattro's unique sensor outputs 5424x3616-pixel raw images at the highest resolution setting, and is comprised of four seperate...

Sigma continue to take a solitary path with the new DP2 Quattro, remaining the only camera manufacturer to use the Foveon sensor technology. Despite some improvements to the processing speed, the Sigma DP2 Quattro is still a rather slow camera that's...

Sigma dp2 Quattro Review

 

In a radical departure compared to the boxy shape of its Merrill predecessor, the Sigma dp2 Quattro's strange, elongated design might scare away some at first, but it's quite comfortable after you try it for a while. Similar to the earlier model, the...

Phenomenal detail and "depth" at low ISOs; Extremely high resolution; Incredible image quality for the price and size (at low ISOs); Fast x-sync speeds; Unique design is unconventional but comfortable and balanced.

Poor high ISO performance; Very sluggish buffer clearing; Poor low-light AF; No built-in flash; Very limited third-party RAW file support; Bundled Sigma Photo Pro RAW software is slow and buggy.

[REVIEW—SIGMA dp2 Quattro compact camera]

 

foveon.com for details) The sensor is APS-C size so the 30mm f2.8 fixed focal length lens is a film equivalent 45mm. The 75mm 920k dot does not swivel. The camera body is long and thin, resembling the Sony NEX bodies but with a reversed hand grip which...

DISLIKE: Here’s what you don’t get. High ISO is out of the question; there is no video mode; the LCD is fixed; the lens can’t be changed; the LCD is not brilliant in sunlight. The RAW files can only be converted in Sigma PhotoPro6 which is so flakey...

VERDICT: Sigma’s Foveon customer base is minuscule but desperately loyal. Devoted owners love the texture and colours that are unique to this camera system. We think we get it, but it is an acquired taste, and like acquiring a taste for truffles and...
