Excerpt: if you know how to use it, it must be your best friend, it's not for sports shooting, if you take a lot of moving objects, it will not fits you. but if you just like artist doing, landscape, portrait, or even some nights view, its' performance is unbeatable!!! You have to use Raw format only.
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: ...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 guess you probably read the technical reviews and now are wondering what insanity would compel you to buy a DP1? If you're reading this review, you're seduced by the idea of great photos from a small package. Period.
Summary: According to Sigma, there are three main upgrades for the DP1s over the DP1, and they are the quickset function assigned to the digital zoom controls, RAW+JPEG writing, and an improvement to the metering for backlit subjects.
