Forgotten feelings, perfectly captured somewhere between the light

I was about 21 when I bought my first SIGMA camera in 2012. The SIGMA DP2x, which I have had my eyes on, was not available for purchase in Canada at the time – I actually had it shipped all the way from Japan. Nowadays I am using a SIGMA DP2 Merrill for my photography.

What I love about the DP series is that it manages to deliver a very sharp image quality within the body of a compact camera. I still use it for my snapshot photography today. It has a unique way of rendering light that I find almost shocking. At any rate, it has changed the way I approach my photography.
I worked for a local magazine in Toronto and used the DP2x to shoot snapshots between assignments. Looking back at the images now, I feel the emotions of that time well up in me again.
There is not much more you can ask of a camera than that it captures, together with the rays of light, your precise feelings at that moment. Further, thanks to the easy-to-use interface and its QS (Quick Set) feature, the DP series is a perfect fit for snapshot photography.

I find SIGMA very appealing as a brand because they develop products with a certain SIGMA-like originality. I also simply enjoy the design of the products themselves. Since the renewal of the lens line-up, SIGMA’s lens barrel designs are my favorite among all camera manufacturers.
