  • The DP1x has a 14-megapixel image sensor, every bit as big as the sensors in Sigma's DSLRs. This generous swathe of photosensitive area takes image quality to a whole new level in terms of high resolution and rich tone.
  • Sigma's three-layered Foveon X3 direct image sensor captures all the color, and doesn't miss a thing, The data it produces is unbeatable in its purity, richness and exquisitely fine detail. This kind of data translates into fantastic image quality.
  • Lens expert Sigma has poured its best technology into an integral wide-angle lens just for the DP1x, with a focal length equivalent to 28mm in a 35mm camera. The wide field angle brings perspective into play, offering scope for dramatic framing and dynamic expression.
  • The Foveon X3 direct image sensor delivers images of startling immediacy and richness of texture. Using the X3F file format, you can experience the DP1x's renowned emotional image quality in its full glory.
  • Like the DP2, the DP1x features the special TRUE II image-processing engine. By optimizing the proprietary image-processing algorithm required by the Foveon X3 direct image sensor, we've managed to make the processing much speedier.

Technical Details

Product Description

The latest version, the Sigma DP1x, remains true to that objective and maintains its wide focal length lens, but reflects several upgrades from the initial introduction of the DP series back in 2008. Specifically, it now houses the "True II" image processing engine, the new AF algorithm provides high speed auto focusing, ensuring convenient shooting and the Power Save Mode lowers the battery consumption allowing for a greater number of pictures to be taken with a single battery charge. The new rear design makes the user interface easier to interpret and use with quick, easy button recognition as the addition of red buttons enables easier operation of the camera controls. The DP1x is accompanied by the latest RAW image processing software, Sigma Photo Pro 4.0 which has superior image processing algorithm and improved compatibility with multi core CPUs and provides better image processing speed and improved image quality. The incorporation of a new noise reduction algorithm reduces Chroma and Luminance noise when processing X3F files taken at ISO 400 or more.

I have, use, and mostly love the original DP1. The DP1 has enormous shortcomings but its one saving grace is that the image quality at low ISOs is simply better than cameras with smaller sensors--which for now, means all P&S cameras, until the Fuji x100 arrives. This is not an issue of how megapixels are counted or Foveon sensors. Its the bigger sensor and the lack of an anti-aliasing filter. So the test reports that say "The camera sucks unless getting the sharpest, most detailed image is your top priority" are correct. But the DP1 has more than its share of problems so I had to know if the DP1x solved them.

The answer, amazingly, is that the DP1x its dramatically better in most ways but in at least one, its worse. The good news: Blue skies, which were cyan with the DP1 are now a beautiful "polarizer" blue. Neutral grays, which were a sort of green/cyan on the DP1 are now almost neutral. Reddish blotches of color noise (the hardest thing to correct with the DP1) are only visible upon careful inspection of even-toned areas. Green corners are almost gone (yea!). Startup is a little faster, the LCD is brighter (although still low res), the quick access menu is great and in general, things are a little snappier (firmware 1.1). This increase in speed is nice because its now feasible to shoot everything in brackets of three, to make sure the highlights are under control.

So what's not to like? Well, the buttons are a little cheesier and wigglier than on the DP1, and for some reason the DP1x simply won't focus in low light or if the subject isn't contrasty. When I say "won't focus" I mean its not as good as the DP1 and that's saying something. In good light, the DP1x AF is fine and its a little faster than the DP1.

As many others have eloquently said, this is one interesting little camera. Instead of Sigma, it should branded "Enigma". Based on the pictures I saw on Flickr and DP review, the DP series had me drooling. I could not wait to get my hands on one. I researched and read a lot about it everywhere on the internet. The red flags were there, but I thought I could handle it.
I currently own an Olympus E30, EP-2 and Panasonic L1 as well as LX3, plus a bunch of lenses.
I was looking for something different and I did find it. I really wanted to like this camera, but the previously documented cons outweigh the pros. In all fairness, I only had the camera for three days and I mostly shot indoors and I took some night shots as well. In other words, I did what the DP1x is not really strong at. I used a variety of settings and ISO speeds. I did get some beautiful colors and detail but a lot of photos had also strange artifacts and some green and purple banding. The colors are there but I believe they can be replicated in other cameras if you jack up the saturation and vibrancy. I may be wrong about that, but at times the colors just seemed a little out of control, as much as I like saturated colors...
I tried AP, SP and P modes. The best mode in low light is P mode. The lens is too slow for AP and the camera ends up choosing really slow speeds and with no IBIS, there were a lot of blurry pics.
I understand that if you want maximum performance, you need to use ISO 50 or 100 and focus manually. I did focus manually, shot raw and used the Sigma PP software. To be honest, I am not gifted either at capturing or developing. Whenever I enter those photo challenges, I usually end up somewhere in the middle, so take my review with a grain of salt. I want my cameras to be responsive and user friendly.

It's all about the results and Sigma DP1x doesn't disappoint. Even wide open the lens is super sharp, film like. There is super sharp digital style which I profoundly hate. This lens is sharp, neutral (Leica like), 'round' with deep colors. The focus is fast enough for most activities that do not involve kids running. I can get almost 150 raw shots per battery and I always have a $19 original spare, just in case. After a day shooting I'm always eager to get home and see the results on my computer. I've never had this feeling with any camera before (well, maybe with Leica X1).

I will say right now - do your research before buying this camera. This is a special tool that rewards your work with wonderful images. Most of my prints are from this and the DP2s. Like was said before, this is not an everyday point and shoot and you will be disappointed coming to this camera with that expectation. It is a great learning tool, and for those patient enough to master this camera...well let's just say you'll be hooked. Yes, frustrations and all cussing aside, you will be hooked. Will you be happy? Yes, because being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfections.

If you see this camera at a bargain price again don't hesitate!

I am happy I bought this camera on sale (unbelievable Amazon offer). Just like there is a place for LPs, oil paintings, hand drawings this camera is for someone with imagination and some skill. You are the artist, not the camera. I would say this camera is like top quality oil paint. In the hands of a master you get a wonderful the hands of a novice, I dare not speculate.

I love this camera and it will be traveling with me a lot. It's the "Leica" I could afford.

Don't blame the camera if you take bad pictures, go take a class and keep trying. :)

The price popped back up by 400 dollars today so I can't believe I got one for 249. Should have bought 2.

Amazon please offer a sale for D2x too because I want one too!
