Sigma sd Quattro overview

  • 1Description

Hit the ground running with the compact sd Quattro Mirrorless Digital Camera with 30mm f/1.4 Art Lens Kit from Sigma. Packing together the APS-C format camera with a 45mm equivalent lens provides shooters with a capable system able to fulfill a variety of tasks.

  • sd Quattro Mirrorless Digital Camera

    Sigma is turning camera development on its head by developing a camera specifically to take full advantage of the Global Vision lens series with the release of the sd Quattro Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Sigma SA lens mount. This camera offers the utmost in resolution with a 29MP APS-C Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS sensor that uses a unique stacked design to deliver full color information at every single pixel without interpolation. By using a 1:1:4 RGB pixel ratio with a layered design, this eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter, the sd Quattro can create 19.6MP lossless compressed raw images with a spatial resolution equivalent to, and with richer colors, than that of a 39MP Bayer sensor. These vast quantities of image data are handled quickly and efficiently thanks to a Dual TRUE III image processing engine. Additionally, the APS-C size provides a 1.5x crop factor when compared to a full-frame 35mm sensor.

    Image quality is the key advantage of the Foveon sensor, with the processing and available feature set allowing photographers to benefit as much as possible from the technology. Ensuring sharp imagery, this newly designed sensor has a hybrid phase- and contrast-detect autofocus system with nine selectable points. There is even focus peaking for shooters who prefer the precision of manual focus. Users will also be able to shoot at up to 3.6 fps in High quality and with a sensitivity reaching up to ISO 6400. Also, a Super-Fine Detail exposure mode is available which will take seven exposures and blend them into one exceptionally clean raw image file with a wide dynamic range.

    Although optimized for lenses, the sd Quattro still caters to the needs of photographers by offering a plethora of physical controls along with an integrated 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder for precise eye-level monitoring. Moving down the back of the camera, Sigma has also introduced a dual monitor system comprised of a 3.0" 1.62m-dot main LCD and a sub LCD screen that displays your basic exposure information and more for constant access to your critical settings. Other controls include a dedicated Quick Set button for bringing up the Quick Set Menu at a moment's notice and a lock switch to prevent accidental changes.

    29MP APS-C Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS Sensor & Dual TRUE III Processing Engine
    At the heart of Sigma's digital imaging system there has always been a Foveon sensor. This 29MP APS-C format Foveon X3 Quattro CMOS sensor represents the latest in this technology, offering outstanding resolution and rich color with smooth gradations and a wide dynamic range by using a layered pixel array. This system stacks the red, green, and blue pixels vertically with a 1:1:4 pixel ratio, allowing full color information to be collected at every photosite and a resolution equivalent to that of a 39MP Bayer array. Additionally, the top layer of blue pixels has a 19.6MP array, resulting in natural raw image data of 5424 x 3616 pixels.

    Ensuring the vast amount of image data is handled efficiently and quickly, the sd Quattro utilizes a Dual TRUE III image processing engine. This allows for continuous shooting rates of up to 3.6 fps in High quality for 14 frames as well as working sensitivities up to ISO 6400. It also enables features like the Super-Fine Detail mode, which takes seven unique exposures and blends them into one clean and detailed raw image with a wide dynamic range.
    Sigma SA Lens System
    Featuring Sigma's SA interchangeable lens mount, nearly every single one of their respected Global Vision series of lenses will be available for use with the sd Quattro. This model features an APS-C size sensor which has a crop factor of approximately 1.5x, meaning that a 50mm lens will have the equivalent field of view of a 75mm lens on a full-frame sensor. Additionally, the lens mount has complete electronic communication, ensuring all functions and features, including autofocus, optical stabilization, and more work correctly.

    Current owners of Sigma Global Vision lenses can take advantage of the company's Mount Conversion Service to have lenses converted for use on different mounts. This ensures that a large library of glass will never become obsolete in the event a user invests in a new camera system.
    Dual LCD Monitors & Electronic Viewfinder
    For composing images and reviewing settings, a bright 3.0" 1.62m-dot LCD is available on the back of the camera. Unique to the sd Quattro series is a sub monitor adjacent to the main LCD which provides constant access to your most critical settings, including aperture, shutter speed, and more. These screens are covered by the same sheet of protective glass for a seamless appearance. For users looking for a more natural eye-level shooting stance, the sd Quattro is also equipped with a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder with a 1.09x magnification. A dedicated switch is available for quickly changing between the monitor, viewfinder, or an automatic switching setting.
    Hybrid AF System
    Equipped with both phase-detect and contrast-detect points, the sd Quattro can capture moving subjects with ease and lock on in no time at all. The system has up to 9 selectable points as well as free move and face detection. Additionally, it has been optimized to function in a range of shooting conditions with an operating range of -1 to 18 EV.
    Super-Fine Detail Exposure Mode
    Maximizing the performance of the stellar Foveon sensor technology is the Super-Fine Detail exposure mode. This creates seven different exposures of the scene which are then blended into one raw file in X3I format. Combined with processing form the Sigma Photo Pro software, a photographer can work with image data that is super clean and with a wide dynamic range. This can greatly benefit studio and tripod-based work.
    Body Design
    Known for distinctive camera designs, Sigma's sd Quattro series sports a very unique design with a comfortable grip and physical controls designed for intuitive control. This includes a Quick Set button near the shutter that instantly brings up the Quick Set Menu for access to your most commonly used settings while continuing to look through the viewfinder. On the top of the body, in addition to two command dials, is a Lock switch that prevents accidental changing of settings. This can be further customized to lock only select buttons for ideal functionality. On the rear of the camera are several additional buttons all easily reachable by the right thumb, including the menu button, focus frame button, and AEL/AF button with lever.
    Other Features
    • Low size continuous shooting can boost performance to 5.1 fps for up to 28 images.
    • With a 39MP equivalent resolution, the dp Quattro has a setting which can produce Super-High size JPEG images of 7680 x 5120 pixels.

  • 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sigma

    The 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM Art Lens for Sigma from Sigma is a prime lens designed for Sigma APS-C format cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalent is 45mm which places it in the category of standard focal length lenses. With its particularly fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, the lens will perform very well in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field focus. With updated optical configurations (9 elements in 8 groups), as well as rounded aperture blades, the lens delivers sharp detail and nice background bokeh. Its minimum focus distance is 11.8" (30 cm).

    The lens’ optimized light distribution helps to minimize field curvature preventing a loss of image quality at the edges of photographs and its double-sided aspherical lens element minimizes spherical distortion. A rear focusing system combined with a newly developed autofocus algorithm and Hyper Sonic Motor provide smooth and accurate autofocus. Fulltime manual focus is also supported. As part of Sigma's "Art" line of lenses it is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock, which enables firmware updates and focusing adjustments.

    Fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows fast shutter speeds for clear low-light imaging and shallow depth of field focus.
    A Hyper Sonic Autofocus Motor (HSM) offers fast, smooth and quiet autofocus.
    Constructed with Thermally Stable Composite Material (TSC) which performs well in extreme temperatures, reducing the expansion and contraction of the internal lens barrel.
    As part of Sigma's "Art" line of lenses it is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock, which enables firmware updates and focusing adjustments.

Sigma sd Quattro reviews

sd Quattro Mirrorless Digital Camera with 30mm f/1.4 Art Lens Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slide Film Image Quality in A Digital Body! Truly amazed at the IQ this camera system is delivering. I've used every major camera from Canon to Leica S over the last 7 years+. Nothing gets me closer to the rich colors of Velvia 50 likes this Sigma system. The raw files are simply the best. If you want your photography to come to life buy this camera. It will slow you down and make you think more as if you shooting slide film from a SLR, but if you understand the limitations and appreciate the finest image color rendition available via the Foveon sensor, you will be rewarded. A must buy for anyone seeking more from their digital photography experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma is getting better I have been using a Sigma DP1 since 2008, indeed pretty slow camera compare to other PS! But the image quality is just like Slide Filmthats why I got hooked with Sigma; since then, I have been own SD14, etc.finally I got the SDQ. For those who are consider the image quality, and have to view the image from the LCD patiently. I would recommend this camera. SDQ is new, a lot faster compare to SD14, but its still slow compare to the Nikon, Canon and Sony cameras. Therefore SDQ is not action camera; this camera is for landscapes and portrait. The Sigma 30mm F1.4 Art lens is pretty sharp lens; regarding about the colors, I would rate this SDQ = #1, Fuji = #2. That is my feedback after using about 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from give it a go excellent camera with incredible image quality. clarity and color rendition is superb. Latitude takes a little getting used to, battery life is meh... but compared to earlier sigma models the usability is excellent. Slower than a DSLR, but not as dramatic a difference as a lot of people make out.
Date published: 2017-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for a photographer. If you learned photography with a film camera using all manual controls, this camera is a great tool to produce outstanding images, it has some "shortcomings" compared to other models on the market, but the images produced is all that counts. Great camera and lens for a fair price, not for the spray and pray and auto everything crowd, just have some extra batteries handy.
Date published: 2018-03-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Class Act If you're looking to do infrared and wondering if this is the way to go - stop reading this review and order this combo. I've provided one infrared shot - I printed this at 17"x22" and look's great this was from a Fine jpg. Also provided is a dng of Dave. The colors from this sensor do have a slide film feel to them. But take off the infrared dust filter and slap on a 72 infrared filter and you can do hand held infrared photography. I love the camera A++ I would give the lens a B+ but it suits infrared very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the Color Aficionado I'm not going to rant about this camera. Simply put, it's great (if you have patience and enjoy the process as much as the result). This camera is one you take on your own and when you have time and a tripod. It is a treat, and the results can truly be on a whole other level!
