Night Walk with the Sigma DP1 Quattro

The Quattro series of camera stand out in many ways. Its shape is unconventional, the sensor is one of a kind and it is not the fastest camera around, but there is not a single camera this size that can touch it for image quality.


Last night I headed out for a photo walk around Ximen with an emphasis on finding some of the smaller back alleys. These alleys are filled with brightly painted walls, cool little 10 seat restaurants and cafes and boutique shops. There’s no shortage of skate shops, fixed gear bike shops, vintage clothing stores, etc… It’s definitely a much younger crowd back here.


About the photos in this post: They were all shot on a tripod at 100ISO using the built in 2 second timer. Many of the images were shot at f/5.6 or f/8 with a few of the very dark scenes shot at f/2.8. Exposures range from 2 to 15 seconds. I was trying to avoid going beyond a 30 second exposure. The X3F files were developed in Sigma Photo Pro 6.2 with few lens correction (perspective) tweaks done in Lightroom.


Images here are posted with a maximum of 2500 pixels on the long edge, but if you’d like to see a full size image, please let me know. I’d be happy to send some your way for closer examination.
