Testing the Sigma DP2 Quattro

I forged an alliance with Sigma Camera Corporation. They sent me their latest and greatest Sigma DP2 Quattro with a proprietary Foveon sensor which is actually three sensors combined into one. I also purchased their predecessor to the Quattro; the Sigma DP3 Merrill which I also have grown to love. I’m going to write a few blog articles (coming soon!) about these two amazing little cameras from Sigma. About six months ago, I started a petition asking Sigma to create a Micro Four Thirds camera with a Foveon sensor but the DP3 Merrill seems to be satisfying my cravings for Foveon Technology. Without going into more detail, I am posting a few test images here to show you the color and quality of the Foveon technology…

You have to click on this image to see the detail that the Sigma DP3 Merrill is capable of. It’s such a beautiful camera and lens. I’m glad I got this camera. This is a shot of a bench in Pioche, Nevada, that has been here for years and is eroding away.
