Excerpt: Ancestor of Sigma DP1X. All the same features. -innovative Foveon X3 sensor technology -huge sensor for such compact body -superb color depth -extreme resolution comparable to "modern" 12-16mpix cameras with 1/2.33 sensors or even 1/1.6 -clean captures at iso50 and iso100 (entry dslr level) Problems: If we compare it with DP1X, this version of camera has some downsides : -slower Auto-Focus -slower writes to SD card (but you can minimize this effect by using fast Sandisk...
Beautiful landscapes can be captured when this camera is used correctly
11 November 2011
Summary: The Sigma DP1S is a compact camera with a larger sized sensor than the typical one in most compact cameras. The sensor uses Sigma's Foveon technology which is different from most other imaging sensors available in the camera market. This is the only unique selling point for the camera. When used correctly, the camera delivers competently with even most Digital SLR cameras, especially for landscapes. The lens is superb, and the distortion from the wide angle is not much.
Excerpt: When Sigma launced the DP1, I was already interested in it's pictures. But when I saw the price-tag, I decided not to buy this camera. About 800 Euro's was way above my financial capacity. Now the Dp2 is introduced, the DP1's price drops like a brick. For about 300 Euro's I bought this camera at an online store. My advantage is that my former quality camera was about six years old (that's quit an age for a digital compact). So the speed was an improvement for me!
Excerpt: I finally bought the DP1s a few months ago after failing to find a 28mm lens compact film camera. I have been shooting film (and digital) for a while and the Foveon look was very intriguing. The DP1s hit the price-is-right point for me and I pushed the button at 200EUR. Fantastic price for this unique tool! The camera has a very sturdy build and a good feel to the materials used. The thing I don't like is the protruding lens when the camera is 'on'.
Summary: Guten Tag, Sigma DP2s zeichnet sich durch sehr hohe Bildqualität aus, dass eben durch den großen Sensor und Sigma Foveon erzeugt wird. Momentan gibt es ab und zu günstige Angebote. Sicherlich ist die Cam nicht jedermanns Geschmack, weil sie eben nicht die schnellste ist, nur in RAW kommen Top-Fotos. Zubehör, wie z.B.ein Sucher fast ein muss, ist nicht gerade günstig.
