Sigma Quattro DP1 Comparison – Part 8 – Yorkshire Air Museum

The Yorkshire Air Museum (http://www.yorkshireairmuseum.org) is a great place to go, and a great place to try out cameras.

The aircraft below, the Blackburn Mercury Monoplane (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackburn_Mercury) built in Leeds, my home town, is perhaps my favourite, and the light is wonderfully captured by the Merrill DP1.

In the comparisons below as ever the Quattro proved to be the far better camera. The comparison is however purely about image quality … and as beauty is in the eye of the beholder I’ll let you make your own minds up.

I’m amazed that the DP1 Merrill is the equal of the DP3 Merrill!

Shooting Notes

All shots are taken at ISO100 & F9, on a tripod, with a 2 second delay. The comparison shots were taken within the time it takes to take one camera off the tripod and stick the other on. All shots have been processed in SPP with no noise reduction and a little sharpening, and for comparisons, finished in Lightroom with the same settings.
