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.
Excerpt: I like the pictures from SIGMA DP1X. Lens is very good, excellent large sensor image quality at low ISO. This camera is extremely slow. Strange camera, but with a little patience rewarded with beautiful pictures. I sold LX3 to buy DP1. Now I think that it was good choice. Problems: VERY SLOW and poor high ISO image quality.
Excerpt: Considering that this is a compact/pocket camera the Imagequality is just outstanding. Coming from CONTAX/LEICA analog cameras I applaud that SIGMA has just included necessary and helpful automatic funtions, not more, on the other side given me total control. Problems: A negative item is the bad display! On a bright day I can not see what is shown at the screen. A further item to be improved is the Photo Pro SW. The program stops after the Imagehandling.
