Surprise, surprise. The Sigma SD Quattro

Sigma was expected to introduce new gear as they do every year at the CP+ photo fair. What was not expected was a successor to the SD1. And definitely not two models at the same time. But that is exactly what they did. Sigma surprised us all with the SD Quattro and SD Quattro H. Two brand […]

Last Sunday I had an assignment from Audi to shoot at the Formula Student Germany on the legendary Hockenheimring. As usual I packed my Nikon gear for this kind of work but tossed the Sigma dp2 quattro in the bag, hoping to have a moment or two to shoot some action with it. And that moment came. In the […]

Let’s Rock ‘n Roll!

In my normal day-to-day life as a photographer I regularly shoot concerts. That is unfortunately not with Sigma cameras because, as is commonly known, high iso and high speed shooting are not the Sigma’s strength. For those assignments I use Nikon full frame cameras. But after my first positive impressions of the dp2 quattro I was […]

Casual shooting with the dp2 quattro

Yesterday two fellow Sigma shooters visited us. As expected when you put four photographers together, they go out and find a spot to shoot around. In this case we headed for the Neuleiningen Castle. The village around it is build against a steep hill and the style of the houses are classic German. ‘Point & […]
