Sigma DP2s Review

best4reviews.com
18 June 2010
  • Summary: The superbly sharp and distortion free lens combined with a direct image X3 sensor capable of capturing a stunning amount of detail means that while this camera may not be for everyone, has a few slight issues and looks quite pricey, those that do love it will be able to make it sing, particularly when shooting RAW and so it has managed to achieve our coveted Editors Choice Award.
  • Pros: Good image quality, bags of detail, robust all-metal design, Improved AF system, Lens, Powerful RAW processor included.
  • Cons: Limited sensitivity range, Price, No optical viewfinder, Underpowered flash, Muted colour, Quirky menu controls, Sluggish handling.

[REVIEW—SIGMA DP2S compact camera]

DPexpert
6 October 2010
  • Summary: The Sigma DP2S is hard to categorise and impossible to compare because of its unique approach to image capture. Making a comparison by price matches it against either a top conventional compact such as the Canon G 11 or one of the Olympus/Panasonic compact Micro four-thirds cameras. We would rate it as superior in image quality to the Canon but no match for the Olympus and Panasonic cameras.
  • Pros: The image quality is generally better than from a conventional compact camera because the sensor area is much larger. Preserved detail, such as hair and skin texture, is superior. Colour is pleasing if a little different from other cameras, rather like the difference between brands of colour film. Focus is slow and noisy but accurate. Exposure is okay but auto white balance is erratic.
  • Cons: This is a noisy camera — in the audible rather than the image sense. Every person we have pointed the camera at has commented on the alarming grinding noise of the slow autofocus.

Sigma DP2s

PhotoReview
1 June 2010
  • Summary: A compact, advanced digital camera with a large Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor and few automated functions.There's very little difference between the Sigma DP2, which was released in April 2009 and the DP2s, which was announced in February 2010. The sensor and lens in the new camera are the same as the earlier model and the rather quirky user interface is unchanged.
  • Pros: You're a serious photo enthusiast who is prepared to spend time learning to operate and understand this complex camera., You want a well-built compact camera with P, A, S and M shooting modes., You don't mind working with a frustratingly non-intuitive user interface and menus that are difficult to read outdoors., You're not interested in recording video clips.
  • Cons: You want a point-and-shoot digicam., You want fast and reliable autofocusing., You're not prepared to shoot and process raw files., You want to shoot widescreen or high-definition video.
