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.
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.

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.
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.
