Its like Sigma Says. Its a tool for taking pictures

Summary: Amazing photos if you know how to use it. Slow enough to bring you to anger sometimes but with a class 10 card its not so bad. Great prime lens and upscaling low iso shots really is not a problem. This camera pulls ever scrap of detail out of the scene.
Summary: Ordered 2 DP1s from Amazon a month ago. Mine is working fine. The other one, I gave it to a friend as a present but I wish I didn't. You see, the other one when power up, showed a pink screen of death.
Summary: I purchased this camera based on the faveron sensor abilities. However, there are too many manual adjustments needed to get desired results. My wife cannot use it as a point and click. The focus is too slow. The lcd is not good for viewing results. The camera has no stabilization.
Summary: ...and here's why: 1. Sensor Inside this little box is a large sensor that does not use mathematical tricks for guessing colour, but actually records what it sees. For me, this means I can imagine more easily what is going on inside the camera and thus better relate to what I'm doing when pressing...
Summary: When I first started in photography, I used a Pentax K1000, which is an incredibly basic, no frills film camera. I loved it. The Sigma DP1s is the digital equivalent of that camera - zero bells and whistles, only the absolute minimum necessary to make an image, and the case of this camera, the image...
Summary: Hey what can I say this a little giant Picture quality from this funny looking camera is just unbelievable image quality is fantastic the hell with big bulky dslrs and for 300$ cant beat it make sure to get extra battery because it dies very fast I mean fast.
Summary: I already own a DSLR with multiple lenses and a handful of nice Canon and Sony digital point and shoot cameras. The thing that drew me to this camera the was what was echoed in almost every review: "slow, too basic, horrible focus lag, bad screen, etc.," yet eventually most of them loved the camera.
Summary: I bought a Sigma DP1s from Amazon last week for the firesale price of $284.64. I briefly owned a DP1 early in 2009, but returned it due to some color problems apparently inherent with the DP1--a strong green cast that appears toward the margins of images.
