DP0 Quattro Announced | Sigma Adds Another Foveon Compact To Unique Lineup

By Anthony Thurston on February 10th 2015

In addition to the new 24mm F/1.4 Art Lens, Sigma announced their next Foveon based compact camera, the dp0 Quattro. Making use of the same design and features as the other three Quattro cameras, the distinguishing feature of this model is the fixed 14mm F/4 lens.

Sigma dp0 Quattro Highlights

  • Optional dedicated Optical Viewfinder VF-51 that offers accurate framing and makes composition easier as it is unaffected by external light conditions
  • The TRUE III Image processor, providing ultrafast processing of an immense volume of image data without any deterioration of the final image
  • Better high ISO performance with one to two stops of improvement
  • Improved 3A performance: Auto Color Mode, Auto Focus and Auto White Balance
  • 14mm F/4 Lens

The addition of the dp0 gives Sigma 4 cameras in this new and unique line of Quattro compact cameras. It is really one of those ‘You love it, or you Hate It’ sort of cameras. The sensor tech behind it is amazing, I just wish we could get a nice SLR style camera to take advantage of it.

That said, if the Quattro series is your cup of tea, than this will be another item to add to your list. Unfortunately, pricing and availability are yet to be announced, so what exactly you are adding to your list, is yet to be seen…

What are your thoughts on these dp Quattro cameras? Are you in the ‘Love ‘Em” or “Hate ‘Em” camp? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!

    It doesn’t look like it will be the cheap one of the bunch, does it? That 21mm-equiv looks like some Serious-with-a-capital-S glass. But yeah — where’s the SD2 Quattro?

      Yeah, I am honestly a bit puzzled as to why we have not seen it yet. With all the good press the Global Vision lenses are getting, you would think that a good offering from Sigma in the camera department could bring in some new Sigma customers.
