Sigma DP2 Quattro

14 Reasons why Sigma DP2 Quattro is better

than the average

1.Significantly more megapixels (photo)
29MPvs 17MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Vastly larger sensor
23.5 x 15.7mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.More battery power
1500mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
67mmvs 97mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
5.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
6.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
7.A little bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
8.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
9.Has an electronic viewfinder
Yesvs No (84% don't have it)
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
10.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
11.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
12.Lots wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
13.Better magnification factor
7.6xvs 0.5x (the average)
vs 10x (best: Pentax X-5)
A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.
14.Has or is a prime lens
Yesvs No (95% don't have it)
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
