Sigma DP2 Merrill Review

Digital Camera Review
7 February 2013
  • Summary: SIGMA's DP2 Merrill produces the finest still images I've seen in any compact digital camera I've had my hands on, thanks to an optically terrific lens and well off the beaten design path sensor combination. Unfortunately, this is not the compact digital for everyone and, in fact, most casual users and in particular those looking for their first digital compact should probably look elsewhere.

Sigma DP2

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The compact Sigma DP2 produces extraordinary D-SLR-quality images, but its steep price and laundry list of drawbacks probably won't please the average photographer. Enthusiasts, on the other hand, are likely to flip for this camera.
  • Pros: Beautiful D-SLR-quality images. Smaller build than a D-SLR. Fast, high-quality f/2.8 lens. Unique Foveon X3 image processor.
  • Cons: No optical zoom. Lens is not interchangeable. No face detection. Noticeable shutter lag. Low still image and video resolutions. Small LCD. ISO 1600 and 3200 are only available when shooting in RAW format. Noticeable noise above ISO 1600.

  • Conclusion: The Sigma DP2 is admirably priced and produces sharp images, but is let down by poor Noise performance, and slow autofocus and write speeds.

  • Summary: Too limiting for most snappers, but definitely capable of achieving top class results in the right conditions
  • Pros: Lots of old school charm, compact size, high quality lens and sensor, great colour reproduction
  • Cons: Small, low-res screen, sloth-like autofocus, lacks the flexibility of a zoom lens

  • Conclusion: An impressive sensor in a compact body, but some of the DP2's other quirks aren't as appealing.

Sigma DP2

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Le sigma DP2 est le successeur du DP1 qui était un compact numérique atypique pour deux raisons principales : -    d’abord parce que c’était le premier compact à capteur de reflex et de technologie particulière (capteur FOVEON) -    ensuite parce qu’il s’agissait d’un compact à focale fixe, grand angle, équivalente à 28 mm (f4, ce qui était un peu frustrant peut être comme ouverture) Le sigma DP2 ne vient pas prendre le relai du DP1 , mais vient comme complément...
  • Pros: Qualité optique, Rendu des couleurs et piqué
  • Cons: Objectif fixe pas si compact que cela, AF un peu lent pour un appareil ciblé expert, Pas de viseur / prix du viseur.

Sigma DP2 Merrill im Test: Kompakte mit…

11 October 2012
  • Summary: Die Sigma DP2 Merrill hat das Aussehen einer Kompaktkamera, den Sensor einer SLR und eine 30-mm-Festbrennweite fest verbaut. Als wäre diese Kreuzung nicht schon speziell genug, setzt Sigma noch eins drauf und baut den Foveon-X3-Sensor ein, der mit drei Schichten zu je 14,7 Megapixeln arbeitet.
  • Pros: Eingängiges Bedienkonzept, Sehr gute Bildqualität im unteren ISO-Bereich
  • Cons: Kurze Akkulaufzeit, Schlechter Griff, Sucher und Blitz nicht integriert, Langsamer Autofokus
