Some new infos about dp2Q from the touch and try event. + JPEG samples from Yodobashi and MapCamera
3 months ago

Thanks to people in Japan. They are sharing infos on Twitter which they got from the touch and try event.

I am summarizing them.

1. dp2Q has a better screen. It's not as good as current Sony's screen, but it is as good as Olympus's screen from a couple years ago.

2. The leather look alike part of the grip was a plastic at the CP+, but it is now a rubber.

3. You can choose the color of the grid line. White or black. DPM has only a black grid line.

4. SIGMA is going to publish new dp2Q Image samples which are taken by Yukio Uchida in Taiwan.

5. Yukio Uchida says "The resolution spec of dp2Q is about 1.3x times to DP2M, but I felt it was about 1.5x". "The contrast and sharpness of DP2M were a bit strong, but dp2Q is natural so it makes the gradation on Chromemode more smooth." "dp2Q's RAW data is easier than DP2M's RAW to edit and try in several ways. DP2M's editing was a walking on the one way path to the best goal." "However, if you like to check the newspaper every day and shoot it, you will prefer the DPM to dpQ."(Maybe he is talking about the sharpness.)

6. Some DPM users claim if you edit the RAW file, it is hard to tell which is the dpQ and DPM, but JPEG shows a huge difference. SIGMA rep said they focused on JPEG as well. The pics in this article are JPEG, which is taken as RAW+JPEG. http://photo.yodobashi.com/sigma/imp/dp2q.html

This is the original size of jpeg sample. http://photo.yodobashi.com/sigma/img/imp/dp2q/08b.jpg

7. After all, the difference of IQ is not so big, but the user experience is a big difference. Easy to use, quick response, and great IQ.

Edit, MapCamera also released new samples of dp2Q. I don't know are they taken by RAW or JPEG. http://news.mapcamera.com/KASYAPA.php?itemid=24737
