the camera does require some patience but you will be rewarded by the best images ever

Roberto Vicente "bodhiu", Amazon

  • Summary: While not having all the perks of the newer cameras (image stablization or zoom) Sigma has made what counts is the image quality and without a doubt the DP1x is stunning. Yes, the camera does require some patience but you will be rewarded by the best images ever.

  • Summary: Great image quality in a camera that has a Commodore 64 for a computer chip. The software operates the same way. Get used to all the quirks and you have the capability to make great-looking images.

  • Summary: I think I had to grow as a photographer in order to be able to get the best out of these cameras (i have both the DP1 merrill and DP2 merrill). Story: I have had multiple cameras and taking pictures since 2003.

Nice files, a little slow

photonashville "John", Amazon
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Sigma is a little behind when it comes to technology in general. It's not a fast camera electronically. But the jpegs are quite nice and the tiff files from raw are simply stunning at lowest ISOs. My main gripe is the raw software is abhorrent. Sigma should be embarrassed.

Hi quality images

marcoc17, B&H Photo
18 August 2014
  • Excerpt: nice lens, good performance at base ISO, fat flash sync, really super easy and practical controls. Unfortunately it is slow in saving images, out of the box need to update the firmware from 1.0 to 1.04, starts to become noisy with ISO higher than 200
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life

Fine art tool for making fine art masterpiece.

pipe2null, Ebay
18 March 2014
  • Summary: This camera model price is "out-of-this-world" when it was released. Same as its picture quality. Do not think of it as plain vanilla digital camera. It's not. It's THE fine-art tool for artist-who-knows-what-good-too​l-is.

  • Excerpt: Yes, this camera does have some shortcomings but only when compared to the latest greatest cameras on the market today. If you are used to shooting film, these shortcomings will be non-existent.

I can live with all its quirks just because of its image quality

E. Hung, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I actually bought this camera refurbished from Sigma online outlet store over the Black Friday weekend. It was going for $636 without tax and shipping fee. When I received the package, I was ecstatic to find out that Sigma had sent me a brand new camera with full 1-year warranty instead of 90-days.
