Summary: It is great camera, but it might not be suitable to everyone or every situation. Focus is slow, and you need a steady hand to take photo, but if you are a person who interested in outdoor, still photo. Then it might be a camera for you.
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.
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).
Summary: It's all about the results and Sigma DP1x doesn't disappoint. Even wide open the lens is super sharp, film like. There is super sharp digital style which I profoundly hate. This lens is sharp, neutral (Leica like), 'round' with deep colors.
Excerpt: -innovative Foveon X3 sensor technology -huge sensor for such compact body -superb color depth -extreme resolution comparable to "modern" 12-16mpix cameras with 1/2.33 sensors or even 1/1.6 -clean captures at iso50 and iso100 (entry dslr level) Sigma Dp1x is a fine-tuned version of Dp1s.
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...
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.
