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…

Early Morning Las Vegas from the El Cortez

Las_Vegas_El_Cortez

I just returned from a three day trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and stayed in the El Cortez hotel on Fremont Street. I was testing the Sigma DP3 Merrill and the Sigma DP2 Quattro which Sigma has out on loan to me. I will be writing up a review pretty soon on my experience with the DP2 Quattro. It’s a nice camera. This cityscape was shot with the DP3!

Fisheye Motel Sign – In Ely, Nevada

Motel in Ely Nevada

This is located in Ely, Nevada, near the downtown area. My brother and I, stayed in this ratty motel but that has never scared me away from cheap motels. If they have excellent neon signage and Americana, I’m always down. Simply unroll a sleeping bag on-top of the bed spread and you never have to worry about what might have happened in that bed?

The Marriage Between Micro Four Thirds & iPhonography

Okay… I’m being overwhelmed with technological advances in photography from using an iPhone 4s to capture and post-process landscape images to using the iPhone to edit and print my DSLR and mirror less camera shots… Okay! I’m not going to give up my regular camera equipment anytime soon, but the iPhone apps are causing me to fall in love with photography all over again. It’s like a rebirth! So stay tuned. This photoblog is going to undergo a lot of different types of photography. I’m trying to post to Flickr, Instagam, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Not an easy feat. Also, this image was shot on a micro four thirds camera then edited with photoshop CS5 and then further processed with the frame using Lo-Mob on my iPhone 4s. I’m integrating my computer and iPhone using Dropbox. It’s pretty crazy. Photo title: Haunted Hallway -Historic Overland Hotel – Pioche, Nevada.
