Overexposure Paranoia with the DP2 Quattro

Before you can shoot technically good photos with a new camera, you first have to familiarize yourself with it. You should follow your own instinct instead of listening to other people’s opinions. I made the mistake of relying too much on reviews – especially on the allegations of the Quattro having more dynamic range in ...

My Sigma DP2 Quattro has arrived!

A few days ago, my Quattro arrived and I’ve already used the opportunity to take some snaps. The first shots aren’t very special but give me the chance to get a feeling for the camera.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art: my prime lens killer has arrived!

The 18-35mm f/1.8 Art is without a doubt one of the most interesting APS-C lenses released in recent years. It received a staggering amount of praise in the reviews, even in those where it was pitted against prime lenses. It outclasses garden-variety standard zooms with f/2.8 aperture mercilessly and allows APS-C camera users to get ...
