Summary: This small nondescript black box is no good in low light. After taking a shot, you need to wait 15 seconds before you can chimp (but you can continue shooting). So you need to use it like you use a film camera loaded with a roll of Kodachrome.
Excerpt: Foveon sensors in general deliver quite distinctive output, and the Quattro is no exception. Colour rendition is better than the previous Merrill generation, rendering of detail is a little different.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Outstanding Image Quality, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I've realized, after reading reviews of each of the Sigma DP cameras and owning them all (DP1, DP2, DP1m, DP3m), that the negative reviews are mostly written by people who don't actually own the cameras.The earlier reviewers pretty much covered the pros and cons (in well written reviews), no need to...
Excerpt: Shoot mostly Landscape.Works great for that.If you use the Quattro within it's "operating window"it's hard to beat.The image quality is on a par with cameras like the A7r and D800 for a fraction of the price.

Pros: Amazing Image Quality, Easy to Use, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Slow Raw Processing Spp
Excerpt: The DP2Q is simply amazing. From the unique body style, to the outstanding image quality. The camera body initially feels foreign. However with use, it feels very comfortable. Very intuitive. Balanced. Not as small as other compacts, but it will fit in a large coat pocket.
Pros: Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Super Image Quality
Excerpt: Camera Body and Screen First thing that strikes you is this is a small dense camera. It is beautifully built and feels like a step up from cameras of a similar size such as the Panasonic GF1. It's all metal besides the controls and lens casing, and feels solid and cool to the touch.
Excerpt: I bought the camera to replace Canon 1DS Mark2 which I used for landscape photography along with 6X17 panoramic film camera. Simply put, it's an awesome camera with hardly any downside for me. I always use a sturdy tripod and use long shutter speed to get wide depth of field.
Pros: Excellent Color Rendition, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
