dp2 Quattro ergonomic study using a mockup

Wooden mockup of dp2 Quattro showing my least uncomfortable holding position

http://cameraergonomics.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/sigma-dp2-quattro-ergonomic-study.html

I was intrigued by the unusual shape of the dp2 Q and wondered what it would be like to hold and operate. So I made a wooden mockup  to the dimensions stated by the manufacturer with all the buttons and dials in the correct positions. I found any of the numerous trial holding positions  rather awkward and uncomfortable. The oddly shaped handle does not fit the natural contours of my average sized adult male right hand at all. There were also significant problems with the relationship between the shape of the camera, the positions of the various control modules and my hands/fingers.

You can read more at the link above.

Does anyone know why it's so wide ?

Happy reading

Andrew
