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

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!

I am totally amazed by the picture quality attributed to the DP2 and the camera is perfect for what I was expecting. It takes superb shots and doesn’t limit me. I’ve heard complaints about the LCD screen and the autofocus but I found neither to be a problem. This is the perfect little camera for me. :)
