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.
Summary: If you like landscapes, travel photography and you know what you're doing in photographic basic terms, then this camera is great. Despite being a bit slow, I am amazed what is created from the sensor and lens.
