DPReview is saddened to hear that Mike Fitzgerald, one of our Sony Talk Forum's most respected contributors has passed away. Mike joined our forums back in 2001 and authored nearly 10,000 posts offering advice on everything from imaging workflow to lenses as well as comment and support for new members joining the forum. He was one of the people on the DPReview forums that have helped make the discussion boards feel like communities and we know a lot of contributors will remember him with fondness. All the staff at DPReview would like to offer their condolences to Mike's loved ones.
PMA 2008: PMA may be over but that doesn't mean we've finished working, yesterday we had our hands on an early Sigma DP1 and have produced a quick gallery (just 20 images) shot around Vegas. As expected the DP1's images are beautifully sharp (thanks to its Foveon X3 sensor) and it continued to deliver good images up to its maximum ISO 800. For those unfamiliar the DP1 becomes the first compact, fixed lens camera to feature a large sensor (in this case approximately 'Four Thirds' size; 20.6 x 13.8 mm). Dive into our gallery and see if a DP1 deserves to make its way into your camera bag.
