This camera is fun to use, produces great images and still is reasonably small and therefore my daily companion for the last 4 months. The f/2.8 lens together with the sensor and storing RAW images produce great results up to ISO 800. I cannot comment on any special look due to the Foveon sensor - I edit the RAW images to suit my taste and I'm happy with it. Coming from using a Nikon DSLR and lens collection, the DP2 is an equally professional tool which requires some getting used to. After ...

I've had my DP2 for about 3 months now and find it a joy. Yes it has limitations, but I was aware of all that before I decided that it was the right camera for my style of photography. Note that some of the early horror stories have been fixed with firmware upgrades - I have not had the camera freeze on me ever. Once you get used to the quirks they become second nature - but I'm only using the DP2 - I can understand that people switching between cameras might find it's idiosyncracies ...

Excellent camera. Back to basics. Be patient with it and you will enjoy using the DP2 and obtain excellent results. I still prefer the DP1 because of the 28mm lens. Don't be put off by the negative feedbacks. This camera is totally different to the mass production (toy) cameras from Panasonic, Canon etc. Highly recommended. I am interested in photography again because the DP2 gives me total control. Problems: I was aware of its limitations but they are not that bad. For me, the DP1 is a ...

I am just an 'average guy' that wants to take a decent photo once in a while. I've had the DP2 for about two weeks now, and glanced through the user manual. Without trying, this camera takes the best digital photos I've ever taken, on a consistent basis. Is every shot a winner, no, but my rate of 'keepers' is much higher than any other digital camera (point and shoots) I have owned (Contax Tvs Digital, Leica D-Lux3, Ricohs Gx100 and Gx200). Is it the easiest camera to use? No, but the ...

Construction feels solid, though from the beginning I had some issues with the flash. It would pop-out, but would not lock when I press it down. Needed to wiggle the release first. Hence my lower score for Construction. Features. Which ones? There are no features here folks! DSLR sensor is the only feature. If you are looking for others - there are none. This does not mean bad. But features are not this camera's strength. Image quality is great. At base ISO much better than what I can get ...
