if you know how to use it, it must be your best friend, it's not for sports shooting, if you take a lot of moving objects, it will not fits you. but if you just like artist doing, landscape, portrait, or even some nights view, its' performance is unbeatable!!! You have to use Raw format only. But amazing!!!

Ancestor of Sigma DP1X.

The DP1s hit the price-is-right point for me and I pushed the button at 200EUR. Fantastic price for this unique tool! The camera has a very sturdy build and a good feel to the materials used. The thing I don't like is the protruding lens when the camera is 'on'. It feels less solid than the rest of the ...

Prices came down enough to make me buy one. Does incredibly good foto's with extremely low noise. Problems: Hope Sigma some days adds a image stabilizer. That would make the camera perfect.
