The Sigma dp3 Quattro Digital Camera combines the 29 MP Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor with the TRUE III image processing engine to create high quality images with an equivalent resolution of 39 megapixels due to the unique sensor design. This method uses layers of pixels to capture the color data of the red, green, and blue spectra vertically, requiring no interpolation. This results in a sharper image with better color gradations.
fixed lens? or interchangeable lens mount? L mount?
Asked by: s
It is a fixed lens but an optional Sigma Conversion Lens FT-1201 can be easily attached to effectively extend the dp3's 50mm focal length to 60mm, which is equivalent to 90mm in the 35mm format. I find that it screws easily onto the optional Sigma 58mm WR (Water Repellent) Protector Filter (which I always leave on).

Are the Sigma’s images compatible with Apple Photos?
Asked by: jane
As of 2/2/21, according to Apple's support page on support RAW files, Sigma cameras are listed as compatible (see this page: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211241).
Technically speaking though, it should work. In newer firmwares, Sigma cameras shoot in a pretty universal RAW format called .DNG (digital negative) which has worked with Apple Photos before. Unfortunately, support will depend on Apple and is subject to change.

The way the Sigma LVF-01 LCD Viewfinder for dp Quattro Cameras works is, it sits on the back of the camera over the camera’s back lcd screen.
It magnifies the camera’s lcd screen and what is on it.

Does this DP3 set include the bracket for the viewfinder and the lens hood? They are not listed in the “What’s In The Box” but they were included with the DP0 set, which also does not list them.
Asked by: Mark
According to the manufacturer, yes, the purchase of the Sigma dp3 Quattro Digital Camera and LVF-01 LCD Viewfinder Kit includes the bracket for the viewfinder and the lens hood.

This camera has a very unique shape. What's up with that? I like it tho.
Asked by: Anonymous
I am amused by critics of the camera's shape who often favor heavier cameras that are as big and unwieldy as birthday cakes! They miss the profound ingeniousness of Sigma's design which allows greater stability when shooting without a tripod. By placing two hands farther apart than one does for other "point-and-shoot" cameras, one gets enhanced stability-- just as a smart tennis player places their feet farther apart when they want to improve their power and aim. I am not saying that this camera cannot be used with one hand, The right-side grip is very comfortable and allows this. However, to make the most of what this powerful camera is capable of, two hands are usually needed... when a tripod is not used.

I notice the questions about 1 or 2 batteries included are dated-- does this DP3Q come with two batteries like my DP0 did? What's in the box says 1, but Sigma says 2.
