User Review

sovelo2002, DP Review
21 March 2013
  • 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. But amazing!!!

Its like Sigma Says. Its a tool for taking pictures

David L. Garfinkel, Amazon
6 June 2011
  • 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. With the software even cuts through haze like a knife. Out does my MK II in a lot of ways. Now if only the SD1 wasn't 8k.

A great photographic tool

Mr. Johnson, Amazon
28 September 2010
  • 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 the shutter release (good luck with imagining what happens with a Bayer sensor if you're not a mathematical genius:).

Image quality is the reason this camera exists

Teddy W. Raper, Amazon
22 September 2010
  • 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 is outstanding. Sure, you have to learn to use it, work around its quirks, and it's only good in a very narrow realm (landscapes, still lifes, etc. and only in good light).

All about Best quality image output, It is Sigma DP1s !

AsiaTropical, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: I have used mostly DSLR, from Canon 40D, 1000D, Nikon D40, Pentax K-x and their picture quality always seem like lag of something, I dont know what that "something" that i keeps looking for ? (Some review/user say that it's output are more film-like, for me i never used film before, therefore , i dont know how it near to film.) Until i tried this Sigma DP1s, the "something" finally appeared!

Funky little piece of equipment

b-ram-z "b-ram-z", Amazon
22 August 2010
  • 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. Every negative you read about it is pretty much true.

Sigma DP1s

FMark, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • 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. If you like sharp, stunning results and come from the learn-the-camera school, you'll forget how much you paid for it long before you forget the joyous photographs you took with it.

Minor update to the DP1 14MP camera

Michael A. Duvernois, Amazon
13 October 2009
  • 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. The quickset is seen on the Sigma DP2 and Sigma SD14 cameras and it is a very nice shorthand. It speeds and improves common settings for my use. I couldn't evaluate the difference in backlit performance, but will trust Sigma on that one.
