Sigma DP1x review: A compact camera promising professional digital SLR quality - at a DSLR price

Decent battery life

Expensive, sensor is not especially sensitive, slow auto-focus

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 price.

Sigma DP1x review

 

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

Sigma DP1x review

 

Sigma is known for its third-party lenses for popular digital SLR cameras, as well as a modest line in complete cameras too.

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 £500-plus asking price. Unfortunately we only found the first part of that...

Sigma DP1x Digital Camera

 

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 flash.

If you feel up to the challenge certainly get an external flash that fits the shoe so that you have the ability to take poor light shots. With good lighting and a decent tripod this can take excellent shots

Sigma DP1x

 

A pocketable camera with a large Foveon sensor that delivers rich, natural-looking colours plus a wide dynamic range and supports raw file capture.Sigma's DP1x features the same 20.7 x 13.8 mm Foveon X3 sensor and wide angle lens as Sigma's first...

There's been a slight improvement in JPEG resolution since we tested the DP2s in June last year, although the X3F.RAW files continue to provide resolution levels well above expectations for the sensor's resolution. As we noted in our review of the DP2,...

Sigma DP1x

 

The Sigma DP1x is a high-end compact camera, with a price tag that rivals entry-level DSLRs. It's obviously a lot more compact than cameras with interchangeable lenses, but it struggles to compete when it comes to photograph resolutions. The good The...

There's no doubt that the Sigma DP1x offers impressive image quality – with sharp and vibrant details – but this camera is let down when it comes to resolution. With images that feature a maximum size of 2652 x 1768 pixels, you'll be restricted to...
