DP1 -- Curiosity Satisfied.....

A lot has been said here about the "original" , - the "real" Foveon so in an idle moment a few weeks ago I bid $1 over the minimum of $149 just to see how it went. Well, it went to me and worse, I hadn't noticed that it was from Japan so I also got stuck with about $100 shipping and import duties/tax.

But like most things Sigma it was a very pleasant surprise when the tiny wee thing emerged from it's original packaging as a newly-born. Bought as used I couldn't see a trace of use.

First thoughts:- beautifully small: love the manual focus wheel -excellent for pre-focus when the screen is hard to see and the flash is feeble but very useful as fill in some circumstances. Processes very fast with SPP 6.5.4

I can well understand the enthusiasm of original owners and will probably have my DP1 in the shoulder bag I always have with me but for me 5Mp is too small these days.

Here's some first snaps, more here :-
