Awesome camera, Beautiful appearance

  • Excerpt: I use this camera for everyday shooting. It has a pretty cool appearance. Really easy to use. Quality is very stick. Works better with a tripod.A great alternative for SLR camera. Performs not really well during the night or with high ISO. But still a good camera. Right choice for travel shooting.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder

Sigma Quattro - A Winner

Keith Garland, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: Superb camera! Very high quality JPEG images right out of the camera. When it comes to image quality it can easily compete with full frame Nikons and Canons. It's light, fits in your hand and has excellent easy to use controls for set-up and shooting. In my opinion it is the best fixed lens camera on the market today.

Great b&w pics

Abigato Jubilato, Adorama
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera because i was looking for an excellent B&W camera that didnt break the bank. I have used the camera for limited landscape areas, portraits and art photos. It excels at B&W. Perhaps its not a Monochrome Leica but it sure beats my higher end DSLRs. Color rendition is excellent. The adjustments are really well thought out and handy for use in the fly.
  • Pros: Easy To Adjust On The Fly, Excellent color rendition, Great black and white, Great Bw, Light Weight, Sharp
  • Cons: Macro Is Not Quite Strong, Macro Needs To Be Stronge, Raw Software

The Best DP Yet

Tim, B&H Photo
24 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I've been using the DP2 Merrill (and DP1 & DP3 Merrill) for two years and have been using the Quattro for about a month now. Overall, the Quattro is a significant improvement in both usability and image quality. It's more responsive and feels much better in my hands. My biggest complaints with the Merrill are the poor LCD screen, slow write times and awful battery life. These have been addressed.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good value, Great Color Reproduction, Great Resolution
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Poor in Low Light

Exceptional as a Specialized Tool

XSIVIVC, B&H Photo
21 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This is not a camera for everybody and wouldn't be a good choice for a single camera. It works well only in good light at low ISOs.However, it works so incredibly well in low light, producing absolutely beautiful image quality, that it seems worthwhile as long as you accept its limitations. The results show great resolution. Whether that great resolution is 29 megapixels or 39 megapixels, is subject to much debate.
  • Pros: Excellent lens, Great Resolution, Great Value, Phenomenal Image Quality, Unique Design
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life, Slow Raw Converter

Medium Format Camera in your hand.

Wchambosse, B&H Photo
19 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I made images from this and my EM5 with a 12-35mm 2.8l Panasonic lens to get as close a comparison as possible. In flat light the difference is hard to tell, there certainly is a little more resolution but my non photographic friends didn't pick up on it. When there is some tonal range like clouds at sunset the difference is impressive. The raw converter while slow puts Camera Raw and DXO with my Olympus to shame. Absolutely increditable.
  • Pros: Great Resolution, Small / Compact

A Welcome Improvement to the Sigma DP Line

Fried Fugu, Amazon
10 August 2014
  • Summary: After using the Sigma DP2 Merrill (and the DP1 and DP3 Merrill) for almost 2 years, the DP2 Quattro is a welcome upgrade in usability and image quality. Here's what I like about the DP2 Quattro compared to the DP2 Merrill: 1. Improved battery life, 2-3 times as many shots on one charge. I rarely need to change the battery more than once a day. 2. Much faster write times. Under 5 seconds shooting RAW+JPEG. 3. Higher resolution display (no more jello shake). 4.

$1000 for a million dollar image- The bar has been raised

Gregory A. Pless, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: In the not too distant future, the images from cameras will simply match that of the human eye. We are getting closer and the Foveon sensor is knocking on the door of that goal. I too just sent back the test camera and couldn't have reviewed it better than DD did. He/she nailed it. Shoot a daylight low or medium contrast scene at 100 ISO and this camera will blow you away with the subtle depth in color and overall sharpness.
