Sigma DP1s

Ancestor of Sigma DP1X. All the same features.
-innovative Foveon X3 sensor technology
-huge sensor for such compact body
-superb color depth
-extreme resolution comparable to "modern" 12-16mpix cameras with 1/2.33 sensors or even 1/1.6
-clean captures at iso50 and iso100 (entry dslr level)

Problems:

If we compare it with DP1X, this version of camera has some downsides :
-slower Auto-Focus
-slower writes to SD card (but you can minimize this effect by using fast Sandisk Extreme SD card series)
-a little bit less photos can be taken
