Reinvention of camera, reinvention of DP
The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce another high image quality compact camera from the SIGMA dp Quattro series, the “SIGMA dp0 Quattro”, which incorporates the Foveon X3 direct image sensor (generation name: “Quattro”).
The “SIGMA dp0 Quattro” incorporates a high performance 14mm F4 lens (equivalent to a 21mm lens on a 35mm SLR), which is optimized to maximize the Quattro sensor’s performance. In order to achieve the highest optical performance, the lens features 4 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, 2 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements and 2 aspheric lenses, including a wide double-sided aspheric lens. This reduces chromatic aberration and distortion, characteristics that are often present in super wide angle photography.
It offers sharp rendering performance from the maximum aperture, and the superior telecentric optical design improves image quality throughout the frame and maximizes the sensor’s ability by passing on information about subjects to the sensor.
Excellence in optical performance, the wide angle of view of 91 degrees and depth of field are ideal for architectural structures, interior photography and landscapes. The dedicated Optical Viewfinder VF-51 (optional) offers accurate framing and makes composition easier as it is unaffected by external light conditions.
With the addition of the “SIGMA dp0 Quattro” to the line-up, photographers can select the most suitable camera based on their photographic needs; 21mm (SIGMA dp0 Quattro), 28mm (SIGMA dp1 Quattro), 45mm (SIGMA dp2 Quattro), 75mm (SIGMA dp3 Quattro) and 90mm (SIGMA dp3 Quattro + dedicated conversion lens 1.2x).
