Summary: I Picked Up This Camera On Ebay Based On Reviews..Ignorant Me should Of Gotten The Warranty,But Since My Past Experiences Went Well With Previous Camera Purchases I Passed & That Was A Mistake..So Lets Get Started..The Build Quality Is Very Nice Very Good Finish.Light.Those Are The Only Positives I Have On This Camera.Most Said This camera Was Slow & That's True To The Point Of Fustration..When It Worked It Was A Charm.
Summary: For a start-off, the 14MP sensor is what normal people think as being a 14MP sensor and not the 4.65MP sensor it really is. This make it too small an image for publishing. This "confusion" arises from the Foveon sensor design in which each light well can record three different colours. But at the end of the day, you get a 14MB TIFF which means you have 4.65MP for each of the three primary colours.
Summary: I am thoroughly enjoying my Sigma Dp1x. After all the reviews, I wasn't sure but that Faveron chip seemed to be calling to me; its website is a killer. After using it, I can say it has really brought back the fun in taking pictures. I think this chip will be to the digital chip what Kodachrome was to film. I am older and compare it mostly with my old Canon Ftb w/ 55mm 1.2 lens; ahh, that glass was large enough to see Sauron's eye! The Sigma Dp1x is slow ..
Summary: The title may be confusing for some - let me explain. I previously owned a DP-1s. I was very happy with this little camera, both in image quality and build. I regretted getting rid of the camera as soon as it left my possession. Fast forward a year or so and I couldn't pass up a sale on the DP-1x. The DP-1x takes great pictures, but for some reason they are not as good as the DP-1s.
Summary: Have done research before placing order when it dropped to 249, it's just simply amazing to get this at that price. Tried a few shots outside in sunshine, the first thing I noticed that it's so sharp! (after processing raw with SPP). Need to try more to get feeling about the color (which is supposed to be superp). Compare with the photos shot by my Fuji X100, this one takes photo defintely sharper - under sunshine though.
Summary: I will say right now - do your research before buying this camera. This is a special tool that rewards your work with wonderful images. Most of my prints are from this and the DP2s. Like was said before, this is not an everyday point and shoot and you will be disappointed coming to this camera with that expectation. It is a great learning tool, and for those patient enough to master this camera...well let's just say you'll be hooked.
Summary: I am happy I bought this camera on sale (unbelievable Amazon offer). Just like there is a place for LPs, oil paintings, hand drawings this camera is for someone with imagination and some skill. You are the artist, not the camera. I would say this camera is like top quality oil paint. In the hands of a master you get a wonderful result........in the hands of a novice, I dare not speculate. I love this camera and it will be traveling with me a lot.
Summary: if you want p&s camera - look elsewhere / otherwise it's a mini dslr w/wide prime / sensor produces vivid life like colors and noise free below iso 100 / on a negative side - camera is really slow in powering up, focusing and shutter isn't as responsive as I would like it to be - so - not an action camera / wide lens is great ! may have to adjust your shooting style/habits ;) ! some footwork maybe involved!
