Description

The SIGMA dp1 Quattro is a new generation of high-resolution "SIGMA dp" compact cameras equipped with the newly developed Foveon X3 direct image sensor (generation name: Quattro).

The Foveon direct image sensor is unique and there is no comparable image sensor. In its structure it resembles the classic colour film, which captures all information of visible light with its different layers. Together with our own image processing technology, this sensor produces incredible resolution, precise tonal gradations, beautiful colours and breathtaking realism with spatial character. In other words, an all-in-one image quality.

For the new dp series we covered and redesigned every aspect of the camera, including the sensor, processor, lens and housing. While retaining the familiar structural expression that even air seems to give shape, the updated Foveon direct image sensor produces images that appear even more colorful, richer, deeper, and more realistic than ever before.

The new generation of the dp series continues our philosophy of creating cameras to create works of art in a radical way. Equipped with the highest degree of basic performance, this series combines artistic expression and everyday practice like no other camera.

Image sensor type

An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. An image sensor is typically a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active-pixel sensor.

APS-C / DX

The DX format is a sensor format of Nikon digital SLR cameras.
The DX format was introduced in 1999 with the Nikon D1. At about 23.7 mm × 15.6 mm, it is smaller than the 35 mm format and also differs from the formats previously used for digital SLR cameras. It is also often referred to somewhat imprecisely as APS-C format.

ISO light sensitivity (auto)

The American Standards Association (ASA) and the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) film speed standards have been combined into the ISO standards. The current International Standard for measuring the speed of color negative film is ISO 5800:1987 from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Related standards ISO 6:1993 and ISO 2240:2003 define scales for speeds of black-and-white negative film and color reversal film. This system defines both an arithmetic and a logarithmic scale, combining the previously separate ASA and DIN systems.
Commonly, the logarithmic speed is omitted; for example, "ISO 100" denotes ISO 100/21°.

Autofocus

Autofocus (or AF) is a feature of some optical systems that allows them to obtain (and in some systems to also continuously maintain) correct focus on a subject, instead of requiring the operator to adjust focus manually.

Contrast-based
i

Contrast-based

Focusing by means of contrast measurement at contour edges is basically the same as focusing the eye, i.e. the photographer, without further aids: The image width of the lens is varied until the brightness curve at light/dark contour edges has a maximum steepness. The camera's processor calculates the frequency distribution in the image, and the greater the proportion of high frequencies (i.e. abrupt light-dark changes), the sharper the image.

Battery-operated

A rechargeable battery or storage battery is a group of one or more electrochemical cells. They are known as secondary cells because their electrochemical reactions are electrically reversible. Rechargeable batteries come in many different shapes and sizes, ranging anything from a button cell to megawatt systems connected to stabilize an electrical distribution network. Several different combinations of chemicals are commonly used, including: lead-acid, nickel cadmium (NiCd), nickel metal hydride (NiMH), lithium ion (Li-ion), and lithium ion polymer (Li-ion polymer).

Rechargeable batteries have lower total cost of use and environmental impact than disposable batteries. Some rechargeable battery types are available in the same sizes as disposable types. Rechargeable batteries have higher initial cost, but can be recharged very cheaply and used many times.

Edition 03/2015- Da die DP1 keinerlei Sonderausstattung wie eine WLAN Einheit oder dergleichen besitzt, ist sie eher eine Kamera, die für Spezialisten geeignet ist. Speziell im RAW Aufnahmemodus erstellt sie tolle Aufnahmen mit hoher Auflösung sowie feinen Details. Dabei ist das Rauschverhalten bis zu einem ISO Wert von 400 sehr gut und erst ab 800 macht sich deutliches Bildrauschen bemerkbar.more

Edition 03/2015- Zwar ist die Sigma eine sehr spezielle Kamera, die auch lediglich in bestimmten Situationen oder Aufnahmen zum Einsatz kommen kann aber dafür liefert sie exzellente Ergebnisse. Ihre Stärke liegt sicherlich in ihrer hohen Auflösung sowie der Abbildung von feinen Details. Die Handhabung ist denkbar einfach und bei Landschaftsaufnahmen oder ähnlichen Motiven macht sei einen tollen Job. Für Portraits ist sie aufgrund ihrer Bauart bzw. Festbrennweite weniger geeignet.more

Edition 02/2015- Bereits mit den anderen Modellen derselben Serie hat der Hersteller gezeigt, dass die Sigmas eine sehr gute Wahl sind wenn es darum geht spezielle Motive zu fotografieren. Da sie eine feste Brennweite besitzen ist ihr Einsatzgebiet auch stark eingeschränkt aber derjenige, der weiß wie sie einzusetzen ist erzielt damit tolle Ergebnisse. Da auch die Bedienelemente auf das wesentliche beschränkt sind ist das Handling ebenfalls sehr einfach. Allerdings sollte man den ISO mit Vorsicht einsetzen, um gute Bilder zu erhalten.more

Ein Stück Fotografiertechnik, das zu den Grundlagen der Fotografie zurückführt. Diese Kamera ist für «Slow Photography» geeignet und liefert ausserordentliche Bildqualität. Das sperrige Design hat seinen Zweck, das merkt man aber erst, wenn man mit dieser Kamera einige Zeit fotografiert hat. Mit einem Stativ und etwas Zeit lässt sich jede Fine-Art-Aufgabe lösen ausser vielleicht Schnappschüsse und Sportfotografie, aber das ist eh nicht die Domäne der Slow Photography. Diese Kamera nimmt unter meinen anderen eine besondere Stellung ein.more
