Q is the normalization of Foveon (?)
Jul 18, 2014

Just want to know You thinking.

I was happy to see a new camera, a new sensor (!), and I can't be happy to see the images... A LOT of You Sigma people is not convinced with the Quattro.

Strange noise (like a fine-sand effect over the image), painted-like-looking, blotches still there, less micro contrast, less apparent foveon-like resolution, less 3D effect (that is what we almost all like about Foveon)... for what more? a sci-fi looking of the tool, a havier file?

Perhalps the Q is still misunderstood, but - that's for sure - I am not running to buy one.

The feeling is that it's the "normalization" of Foveon.... sorry to say that but that's from what I saw till now, and damn I LOVE Sigma.
