THE REDEVELOPED HORGAN’S QUAY AREA I USED A SIGMA DP1 QUATTRO CAMERA
I always bring a back up camera with me when I travel and this time I selected the Sigma Quattro DP1. The Quattro is very difficult to use and does not work well in low light and sometimes the images have a green tint.
Spanning six acres and located on the River Lee next to the Port of Cork, the Horgan’s Quay development comprises a new scheme of contemporary offices, homes, hotel, leisure facilities, shops and restaurants. The restoration of the on-site heritage buildings such as the goods shed, carriage shed and original station house make the centre pieces of this mixed use development.
Sigma’s DP1 Quattro is a fixed lens camera aimed at enthusiasts who demand the best image quality from a fairly compact body. It’s a unique camera in many respects, with an unusually-shaped body, a fixed wide angle lens and a sensor which captures colour unlike any outside of Sigma’s range. It also eschews modern features we take for granted on other new cameras such as Wifi or even a movie mode.
