Sigma DP3 Merrill – A Camera of Choice

I’ve owned the DP3 Merrill for three months. In that time, when the light is good and the aim is to capture the tone and detail in the scene, it’s fast become my camera of choice.

The Merrill’s failings are well known, and hopefully the updated sensor in the new Quattro will address these issues, never-the-less if it’s IQ you’re after then this little camera with its Foveon sensor is hard to beat. Not only does it bring out details and tones but it also has a unique look, which you either love or hate.

I bought the DP3, with its 50mm lens (70mm equivalent on a 35mm camera), as a specialist camera for B&W close ups; I’ve ended up using it for colour landscapes, stitching to overcome the narrow field of view, but also loved using the limitations to find different perspectives on the scene.

A selection of shots from previous posts below. Enjoy!
