Decent still photos but overall it's too expensive for a compact camera...

We wish we could report that this Sigma DP1x camera is expensive, slow and awkward to operate; yet capable of taking stunning pictures to make it worth every penny of its asking...

A quirky camera with plenty of charm, but it struggles to compete with big-sensor compacts from the better established brands....

This is very slightly larger than a small ‘point and shoot’ digital camera but a good deal smaller than most DSLR however in reality it is neither, it has good points and bad, two that stick out are no optical zoom and a poor inbuilt...

Sigma's DP1x features the same 20.7 x 13.8 mm Foveon X3 sensor and wide angle lens as Sigma's first large-sensor compact camera, the DP1, which was released just over three years ago. This recent update is largely cosmetic and combines the rear...

International Review By Betabuzz on 88

Was auf den ersten Blick nach einer vielversprechenden Alternative zu Spiegelreflex-Klasse klingt, enttäuscht in der Praxis so ziemlich auf allen Ebenen: Wer deutsche Wertarbeit im Digitalkamera-Bereich sucht, greift zumindest angesichts der Sigma...

International Review By Les Numériques on 40

Le DP1x est un appareil hors norme doté d'un grand capteur et d'une focale fixe. Si le capteur laisse entrevoir des possibilités, le boîtier n'est vraiment plus au goût du jour. L'arrivée du Fujifilm X100 ne...

Le DP1x intègre le nouveau processeur de traitement des images TRUE 2 (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) II qui devrait apporter un gain au niveau du traitement des images et notamment du bruit électronique dans les hautes sensibilités et...

Wer bewusst fotografieren will und nicht auf den schnellen Schnappschuss aus ist, findet in der DP1x ein Instrument, mit dem sich im RAW-Prozess gute Bilder bis ISO 400 erstellen lassen. Die Bildqualität bei höheren ISO-Zahlen und das Tempo...
