Sigma sd Quattro H

Released February, 2016
  • 25.7 MP
  • APS-C 26.6 x 17.9 mm CMOS
  • 3" LCD
Sigma will also be updating their own software, Sigma Photo Pro 6.5 and Sigma Capture Pro 1.3 with the release of the sd Quattro H. As you can read in my Sigma sd Quattro Field Test, my experience with Sigma’s software was not particularly pleasant, so DNG file compatibility for the sd Quattro H is great news.

In The News From around the web

There is more exciting news for Sigma shooters, however, as the imminent Sigma sd Quattro H will be compatible with DNG image format, meaning that the Sigma sd Quattro H’s files will be compatible with third-party software such as Adobe Lightroom.
Sigma will also be updating their own software, Sigma Photo Pro 6.5 and Sigma Capture Pro 1.3 with the release of the sd Quattro H. As you can read in my Sigma sd Quattro Field Test, my experience with Sigma’s software was not particularly pleasant, so DNG file compatibility for the sd Quattro H is great news.
