PhotoReview.com.au has posted its review on the Sigma DP1 rangefinder digital camera where its notes that Sigma has done a great job with this camera by packing so much into such a small body.
Margaret Brown writes, â€œIt is not a camera for point-and-shoot photographers. Nor will it suit photographers who only shoot JPEGs and prefer not to become involved in subsequent editingâ€¦ if you are prepared to shoot raw files, convert them into 16-bit TIFF with the slightly quirky Sigma Photo Pro software and then work on them in a sophisticated image editor, the rewards are there in the form of images with an excellent dynamic range and rich, natural-looking colors.â€
She concludes that in the DP1, Sigma â€œhas produced a fascinating imaging tool that has potential to develop a cult following. Although it’s not the ideal solution to a serious photographer’s compact camera requirements, the DP-1 is a great start – and a credit to its manufacturer.â€
