Sigma DP1

My family has had three of those Sony CyberShots–the T-series. You know –the crazy slim ones. Yeah. After purchasing all of them, I’ve come to realize something. They all suck. The picture quality is horrid and blur seems to always taint your subjects. On the other side of the scale, I have a Nikon D70. It’s a digital SLR which takes fabulous photos, but it’s a compromise for its bulk. So, there lies the dilemma. Is there a compact camera with decent picture quality? Sigma seems to think they’ve cracked it.They call it the DP1.

A permanently fitted prime 16.6mm lens sits in front of a Foveon X3 sensor. A sensor designed for superior color replication. It gives you control of ISO, white balance, shutter speeds and focus. So it’s designed for a photographer who doesn’t want to lug around an SLR.

It retails at $1090, but it’s easily found at $800.
