Australia’s PhotoReview on the Sigma DP1 Rangefinder Camera

Sigma DP1 Rangefinder Camera 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, “It 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 editing… 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.”

She concludes that in the DP1, Sigma “has 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.”
