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: As many others have eloquently said, this is one interesting little camera. Instead of Sigma, it should branded "Enigma". Based on the pictures I saw on Flickr and DP review, the DP series had me drooling. I could not wait to get my hands on one. I researched and read a lot about it everywhere on the internet. The red flags were there, but I thought I could handle it. I currently own an Olympus E30, EP-2 and Panasonic L1 as well as LX3, plus a bunch of lenses.
Summary: I have, use, and mostly love the original DP1. The DP1 has enormous shortcomings but its one saving grace is that the image quality at low ISOs is simply better than cameras with smaller sensors--which for now, means all P&S cameras, until the Fuji x100 arrives. This is not an issue of how megapixels are counted or Foveon sensors. Its the bigger sensor and the lack of an anti-aliasing filter.
Excerpt: Давно хотелось попробовать поснимать фотоаппаратом использующий в качестве светочувствительной матрицы матрицу Foveon. Сейчас эта матрица представлена в устройствах компании Sigma. В данном фотоаппарате используется такая же матрица, как и в старшей модели - зеркальной камере Sigma SD15. Впечатления от использования фотоаппарата самые разнообразные. Если говорить коротко, то эта камера подойдет далеко не всем.
