Sigma Quattro Images

I want to give a special thanks to the few people posting images here taken with the sd Quattro or sd Quattro-H.

Today I purchased a sdq with the 30/1.4 Art lens. It will join my DP Merrills (1, 2 & 3) as cameras I really enjoy using, despite their well known quirks.

The sd Quattros are very likely the last of the Sigma SA mount cameras. I hope that Sigma will release an L-mount Foveon camera (preferably with a FF sensor) that brings the very best of Foveon image quality and improved operational functions to a much wider market.

To celebrate and support Sigma on it's 60th anniversary.....


I bought a dp3 Quattro.

While I have 3 DP Merrills, the SD1 Merrill and a sd Quattro, I have wanted to try a dp Quattro camera. The 75mm eq focal length of the DP3 Merrill really appeals to me, so I picked up a dp3 Quattro with the LVF-01 viewfinder. Took a few test shots, made some prints and I'm happy with the results.

Great colors. I’m curious if you’ve compared it to your DP3m yet. I’ve thought about trading mine in for the Quattro version so that I could shoot in SFD mode.

I like the colors also. The dp3Q also captured very fine details in the fabric of the old flag which were nicely presented in a 13x19 inch print I made of that image. I’ve had the camera for less than a week . I haven’t had a chance to take any side by side comparison shots with the DP3M yet. It snowed here last night, so it seems that Fall has come to a quick end. I will try to take some comparison shots in the next week or so and I’ll share them in a separate thread here.
