Sigma DP3 Merrill

PC Magazine
4 May 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sigma DP3 Merrill packs a 46-megapixel Foveon image sensor and a fixed 75mm macro lens. It can capture amazing photos, but it's not a camera that will appeal to the masses.
  • Pros: Sharp 1:3 macro lens. APS-C Foveon image sensor. Sharp rear LCD. Improved JPG engine.
  • Cons: Cumbersome Raw workflow. No HD video support. No EVF option. Slow autofocus.

Sigma DP3 Merrill Review: Bigger Lens, Same Body

Digital Camera Review
10 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Sigma has long been known for the quality of their lenses, but their cameras have always taken a backseat. Although they should easily stand out of the crowd with their unique Foveon sensor and amazing image quality, Sigma cameras lack a few key elements that keep them from reaching the pinnacle of success.
  • Pros: Outstanding image quality at low ISOs, Great color quality from Foveon sensor, Optically superior 50mm lens
  • Cons: High ISO images are inadequate, Slow autofocus, Poor battery life, Expensive

Sigma DP3 Merrill

6 June 2013

It's too big and bulky for a trouser or shirt pocket though, primarily because of the lens housing which protrudes about 5.5cms out from the front of the camera body.

Sigma DP3 Merrill

16 August 2013
  • Summary: Sigma DP3 Merrill (DP3M) er et spesielt kamera, veldig spesielt. Det er også vanskelig å vurdere opp mot andre modeller, for det finnes ingen andre kompaktkameraer med en brennvidde på 50 millimeter som gir bildevinkel tilsvarende 75 millimeter (kort tele) på et fullformatskamera. Trenger du en annen brennvidde, må du velge DP1 Merrill (vidvinkel) eller DP2 Merrill (normal) i stedet - eller i tillegg.
