On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (177 comments in total)

phazelag: All these criticisms from people who havent used a sigma DP or held this one in their hand used it. I know several people I trust that say after an hour they love the camera ergonomics. Usually a radical design like this has some smart thinking behind it, but very few are open to even trying to understand it.

Its cool if Chris doesnt like, many people will also not like it. I may not like it. But I think to make assumptions without trying it for yourself may prevent someone from finding something they actually like.

I found so many criticisms of my Ricoh GR in so many reviews and DP review comments that I almost didn't try it. But now that I have it, its my favorite camera of all time. I don't get an emotional connection with cameras, but I love my Ricoh. I love the handling and color which is the number one criticism.

Steve Huff adores the handling. http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2014/08/18/got-iq-the-sigma-dp2-quattro-review/

This is imaging resources fairly balanced description of the handling. Not everyone will love it but he makes good points about geting used to it. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sigma-dp2-quattro/sigma-dp2-quattro-shooters-report-part-i.htm

Doug Kaye gave it great reviews for ergonomics and rated high for him on exposure triangle controls. A 6 for him is high for him if you watch the video. He only downgrades it for ecosystem and raw file development which everyone knows is a pain. Chris may not like it, but he doesnt like alot of cameras. He doesnt like the merrill either but I do. Buts its funny how based on one review you make assumptions that I don't know something. This is more comical than making assumptions about a camera you haven't used, because now your making assumptions about someone you don't know from a small paragraph.

I like Chris but he is clearly a go with the crowd guy and doesn like anything outside the box. He likes cameras that sell to the masses and he says that in his Merrill review.

In reply to:

Johannes Vetter: I prefer the DP Merrill Design. Smaller, more practical. This quattro Loupe seems a bit overengineered. But who cares, as long as Sigma is the only company that can put such a unique sensor in a consumer camera, they can even make it look like a yoghurt cup and it will sell.

Btw there is also a new Sigma hotshoe viewfinder called VF-41. it looks bigger than the old ones and should be in fact comparable to a Voigtländer (brighter, less distortion).

I have a DP3 Merrill but I do find that it doesnt feel secure in my grip. I am told by people I trust that this one feels excellent in your hand once your used to it. I am looking forward to it.

In reply to:

Cal22: If only Sigma had given their Quattro cameras a hotshoe for an add-on tiltable EVF! The loupe is certainly a helpful device but it's also bulky and not tiltable.

Sigma should redesign the Quattro series and eliminate a bad mistake as soon as possible! Then a Quattro camera with a super wide angle ought to attract new and serious attention to Sigma's unique sensor!

There is a hot shoe on all of them. But no digital connections on the hot shoe other than the TTL connections

webber15: Marty,,the camera design is not grotesque at all,,I personally think it looks better than the previous generation,,,seriously,,just look at that Nikon d810 to the right of the screen and tell me it actually looks good,,,its not attractive at all,,just porposeful,,you seem to struggle with "change"...

This isnt a camera you buy for looks, sigmas market is small but typically smarter and more experienced than the broader market.

phazelag: It seems you either get these cameras or you don't. I finally dipped my toe in the DP waters with a DP3 Merrill and I love it. The images are worth it and the shooting experience is pure photography. I want this series. I will get all three eventually.

Like I said you either get these or you don't.

In reply to:

MPA1: I had an early DP. The Foveon is a great sensor but man the AF sucked big time on that camera. Hopeless - utterly useless in the real world if your subjects ever move!

Will be interesting to see if this one is useful. That Loupe looks like it was designed by Heath Robinson though.

Dp3 Merrill has decent AF

In reply to:

bstolk: So, how large is that 'large sensor' then?
It is such an imprecise term.
If FF, it could be interesting for shallow dof, but as they mention 'equivalent lenses' it must be a smaller sensor than that.

APSC. Easy to look up the specs on site like this.

I am a sucker for an innovative strap but this doesn't do much for me. My R Strap is fine, but I am also not carrying giant cameras and lenses anymore. I am all done with DSLRs. My Op/tech straps are useful too. That one still blocks the battery doors and maybe the card door on some.

On The X-factor: Hands-on with Fujifilm's X30 article (36 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rainer2022: The unique selling point of the cam against the Sony RX100... is the Electrical View Finder.

If you don't need it: buy Sony. If you need it, buy Fuji or other cams with EVF.

My fz1000 is close to thAt. The problem is the X30 has nothing else to get excited about. The rx100 mark 3 has better low light Image quality and fits in my pocket.

For the x30 to get me to want it and try the Fuji system it needed something more. Instead it's no better than the Two year old model.

On Very flashy: Ricoh unveils Pentax K-S1 DSLR article (206 comments in total)

I am baffled when companies that can create genius like the Ricoh GR and K-3 end up creating wacky stuff like this. Fuji does this too, genius x series and crappy bridge series.
