Sigma DP2x Review

 

The Sigma DP2x is a compact camera with a large APS-C sized sensor, as used in much larger and heavier DSLR models and therefore promising better image quality than other compacts. Principal differences between the DP2x and the previous DP2 model are a...

The Sigma DP2x is a very minor upgrade of the previous DP2s model, with quicker autofocusing being the principal new feature. Although this helps to make the camera faster to operate, it's not enough to keep up with the ever-expanding competition. In...

Hands-on Report: The Sigma DP2x Camera Review

 

Now decidedly behind the times, the Sigma DP2x still inspires with picture quality

Sturdy build quality ; Manual and RAW shooting ; High image quality from sensor and lens

Very poor LCD ; Expensive ; Feature set behind the times

So, is the Sigma DP2x a camera that you’ll love to hate, hate to love, or just love? Our guess is that most photographers will fall largely in the first two categories, and make no mistake, we’d bet that most would lean to disliking it over liking it...

Sigma DP2x Pricing Announced, Features Still Unknown

Sigma DP2x review

 

Sigma's fixed-lens DP2x takes a rather different approach to the high-quality compact camera. Designed for keen enthusiasts, it's most definitely a camera for those who know what they're doing: Its purist approach leaves no room for automatic scene...

TheDP2x is sure to polarise opinion: the same features which will put off the vast majority are the self-same features which will make others fall in love with it. However, while true fans will put up with its generally slow response, small 2.5 inch...

TIPA Camera Test Online: Sigma DP2x

 

The Sigma DP2x is the successor to the DP2s and is based on the same Foveon X3 sensor. It uses a new image processing unit for higher speed (startup time, shutter delay etc.). Its special sensor records images with 4.7 MP but detects RGB information...

very good transformation of nominal sensor resolution into real image details ; no moirés or aliasing artifacts ; compact and robust body ; manual control for exposure settings and focusing

missing interchangeable lens system, no zoom lens ; small LCD with low resolution ; low video resolution (320 x 240 pixel)

Sigma DP2X review

 

Boasting a 14MP Foveon sensor, found in the brand's DSLRs, as well as a fixed focal length 41mm lens, the DP2X promises excellent images. However, how does the rest of the specification shape up...

Very good images, unique design

Poor and limited specification, usability issues, expensive related to peers

Sigma DP2X

 

The DP2x aims to deliver D-SLR-style performance in a small, compact size body – but does it deliver?

The DP2x’s APS-C sized sensor provides great image quality in a compact body, which will appeal to enthusiast photographers who want to travel light and still get good pics. We were very impressed by its colour detail and metering capabilities, but it...
