Sigma Quattro Sports Photography Detailed Analysis
Most outdoor sports games are held in all-weather, so your camera has to be ready for difficult conditions such as rain and snow. Exposure to dust and water splashes are also very common in sports. Fast Max shutter speed: 1/4000s
Sigma Quattro's 1/4000s shutter speed is fast enough to freeze any almost all sports action and is also helpful when you use a fast lens at largest aperture under bright sunlight. Electronic Built-in Viewfinder
During a sports shoot, using a viewfinder allows the photographer to stabilize the camera and reduce the camera shake since it is closer to the body. Besides, it comes handy where LCD screens are very hard to read under bright sunlight.
Average Continuous Shooting: 3.8fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better. Average Ergonomics&Handling
although not as good as a DSLR body, Sigma Quattro is good enough for most conditions.
Slow Continuous Shooting: 3.8fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better. 9 Focus Points
In sports photography , you keep continuous autofocus (AFC) mode on for tracking the subject and more focus means better tracking. No Image Stabilization
Due to the lack of sensor based Image stabilization, Sigma Quattro users have to rely on lenses with optical IS in order to maximize the sharpness of their sports photography photos. Currently there are native Sigma SA Bayonet mount lenses with Image Stabilization for Sigma Quattro.
