Warning - Actually a 5MP camera and NOT 14MP.

R. Fischer "ray42", Amazon

  • Summary: Sigma uses a very different sensor technology that actually captures three colors for every pixel while all other digital cameras capture one color per pixel and then interpolate the colors.

Why can't Sigma fix this?

Douglas Henderson, Amazon
18 February 2009
  • Summary: I finally broke down and bought a DP1 last week. There were apparently some image corner color issues with this camera with its initial firmware/software from a year ago when the camera was first released.

I wanted to like it

MEDIAHOUND, Amazon
24 June 2008
  • Summary: I wanted to like this camera but didn't. The lens is too wide for most uses. I suppose if you shoot mostly with a 28mm lens, you may like this camera more but I would have prefered a 35mm equivalent lens. I also found that it was too sluggish in operation and I longed for a faster lens.

Are you serious about this?

S. Tollefson, Amazon
10 June 2008
  • Summary: $800 to match the performance of a $40 Insta-Matic? This is progress? This camera does a few things exceptionally well, which will suit a few people well. But for most of the things people buy a camera for, this one does mediocrely, at best.

Preferred the old DP1's.

C. Abela, Amazon
7 February 2010
  • Summary: I'm a massive fan of the original DP cameras. The Sigma DP1x is the best camera I've owned. From the moment I first used it I realised that I had found a camera that was good enough to replace my old Leica M7 film camera.

So gut ist das Ding nicht ........

Ein Exzentriker, Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: .... so gut wie einige es beurteilt haben. Extrem langsam und die Qualität der Fotos ist auch nicht berauschend. Nur weil die Fotos schön bunt sind, sind sie noch lange nicht von guter Qualität. Aber das Schlimmste ist die Langsamkeit in jeder Beziehung.

  • Summary: Hola a todos. Venía siguiendo un par de años los comentarios a esta cámara y, por fin, me he podido hacer con una. En primer lugar, aspecto sóilido, como de cámara de toda la vida, relativamente cómoda y no tan mal de rapidez como algunos comentan (tengo una Ricoh GRD que es igual de lenta y más...

  • Excerpt: После года плотной работы с камерой могу сказать только то, что камера сложная и неуниверсальная, выдает хорошие результаты при съемке "однотонных" сюжетов при полном отсутствии контровых источников света.
  • Pros: 1. Цветопередача и ДД (только для опред. условий съемки), 2. Отличная детализация, 3. Матрица размера как у кропнутой зеркалки..., 3. Очень приличный объектив, 4. Стильный дизайн и размеры
  • Cons: Очень много:, 1. Скорость фокусировки / съемки и записи кадров крайне мала, 2. Нет антитряса -снимать нужно со штатива даже при приличной освещенности иначе смазы неизбежны при такой детализации..., 3. Батарея будучи заряженно на 100 проц. и находясь в корпусе аппарата разряжается без съемки за п...
