Sigma Quattro DP1 Comparison – Part 6 – Pay & Display

A repeat of the comparison between the DP2 Quattro and DP3 Merrill but this time it’s the  DP1 Merrill V DP1 Quattro.

As ever the Quattro is by far the better camera. This comparison is purely about image quality and as beauty is in the eye of the beholder I’ll let you make your own minds up.

Again, as with Clocks & Green,  IMHO the Merrill has less noise and brings out more detail … but if you step back from a 100% view,  this becomes less important and the advantages of the camera come back into play.

Shooting Notes

Both shots are taken at ISO100 & F11, on a tripod, with a 2 second delay. The shots were taken within the time it takes to take one camera off the tripod and stick the other on. Both shots have been processed in SPP with no noise reduction and a little sharpening, and finished in Lightroom with the same settings.
