The Sigma DP1 compact camera was taken for a spin by the folks over at Imaging Resource and as expected the camera shone through the review and failed to disappoint.

On testing the DP1, reviewer Shawn Barnett gave the camera a thumbs up for its excellent optic, low barrel distortion,  good image quality, sleek ergonomics and the 3.77 fps continuous mode. However JPEG images were found to be a tad disappointing and macro photographers should avoid the DP1.

Verdict:

"Sigma DP1 is not a good choice for the casual shooter; and JPEG shooting is really a bad idea. Its current lack of accessory lenses also makes the Sigma DP1 tough to recommend to most photographers looking for a small, light, multi-purpose digital camera. But for those looking for a particular vision, a single, unique way of making photographs with a wide-angle lens, the Sigma DP1 is worth a look."
