Sigma dp1 Quattro

PC Magazine
24 November 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sigma dp1 Quattro is the wide-angle sibling to the dp2 Quattro. Like the dp2, its image quality is outstanding, but it's slow to use and Raw processing requires some patience.
  • Pros: Wide-angle field of view. Foveon APS-C image sensor. Superb image quality at low ISO. Bright, sharp rear LCD. Dual control dials. Quick set menu system.
  • Cons: Slow. Lens lacks image stabilization. Outdated Raw conversion software. Funky design. Lacks built-in EVF or add-on option. No video support. No built-in flash.

  • Conclusion: The raw files are Sigma's own X3F format, which can only be opened using the supplied Photo Pro software, since even older versions aren't fully supported by any other software.
  • Pros: Excellent images at low ISOs, Manual controls, Good basic control layout
  • Cons: Noise above ISO 400, Slow write times, Slow raw processing software

  • Pros: Excellent images at low ISOs, Manual controls, Good basic control layout, The image quality at low ISO settings, particularly from raw files, is as good as many more expensive cameras, while the compact size, simple design and basic control layout are all impressive.
  • Cons: Noise above ISO 400, Slow write times, Slow raw processing software, Above ISO 400 the image quality is disappointing, and the slow write times, battery life and reliance on Sigma's Photo Pro software for raw processing can be frustrating.

Sigma DP1

Absolut Photo
3 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Le Sigma DP1 est un compact qui répond enfin à la demande d’un certain nombres d’experts, voire de professionnels en quête d’un APN d’appoint facile à transporter. Ce compact est d’une facture presque irréprochable et sa finition noire est à la fois discrète et élégante (aluminium satiné).
  • Pros: Son look et sa finition, Sa belle focale fixe et ses qualités optiques, Sa taille et son poids
  • Cons: Ses résultats un peu aléatoires en Jpeg, Sa réactivité limitée, L'absence de viseur optique intégré, Son prix (étant donné l'offre actuelle des reflex, et la concurrence des petits réflex)
