The Sigma dp1 Quattro is the wide-angle sibling to the dp2 Quattro. Like the dp2, its image quality is outstanding, but it's slow to use and Raw processing requires some patience.

  • +

    Wide-angle field of view. Foveon APS-C image sensor. Superb image quality at low ISO. Bright, sharp rear LCD. Dual control dials. Quick set menu system.

  • -

    Slow. Lens lacks image stabilization. Outdated Raw conversion software. Funky design. Lacks built-in EVF or add-on option. No video support. No built-in flash.

Then there's the features, or rather lack of them. No viewfinder as standard. No tilting screen. No Bulb mode, movies, Wifi, HDMI, effects (other than a selection of Colour Modes), or focus peaking either.

  • +

    Crisp, colourful, unique-looking images., Good quality fixed focal lens., Small and light but solid body., Clean and simple controls.

  • -

    Visible noise even at the lowest sensitivities., No built-in viewfinder., Unusually-shaped body can be hard to hold., Some coloured fringing even with reduction enabled., No exposures longer than 30 seconds., No flash, movies, Wifi, peaking, or effects.

The raw files are Sigma's own X3F format, which can only be opened using the supplied Photo Pro software, since even older versions aren't fully supported by any other software.

  • +

    Excellent images at low ISOs, Manual controls, Good basic control layout

  • -

    Noise above ISO 400, Slow write times, Slow raw processing software

The DP1 is not without flaws, but it also has certain charms. Minor adjustments to the design of the camera would certainly make it more usable, and Sigma needs to look at the built-in flash for any subsequent models.

  • +

    Images generally good, Nice design overall

  • -

    Poor flash, Hard-to-see button markings, Expensive

Our cons may outweigh the pros for the Sigma DP1 Merrill, but that's a little misleading. Despite the shortcomings of this fixed-lens compact, it delivers some of the most beautiful, detailed images at low ISOs that we've ever seen from a camera in its price range.

  • +

    Exceptional detail rendition and color resolution at low ISOs, Sharp, relatively fast 28mm-equivelent lens, Simplified, easy-to-use controls that limit menu diving, Good build quality, Quick Set button gives you fast access to preferred key settings, No demosaicing artifacts, Great per-pixel...

  • -

    Fixed focal-length lens limits shooting flexibility, Very poor high-ISO performance, No control over in-camera noise reduction, Need to shoot RAW to take advantage of what the sensor has to offer, No built-in flash, Large macro area, No image stabilization, Slow cycle times and burst mode, Shallow...

Quite simply, the DP1 provides the best image quality of any compact I’ve yet tested. But the price, overall handling and performance mean I suspect you’ll need to think long and hard to justify the outlay.

    Image quality, build, RAW shooting.

19 May 2008

I'd like to start this conclusion by saying that Sigma deserves an incredible amount of credit for doing what none of the 'big' manufacturers so far have been bold enough to do.

  • +

    Class leading detail in ISO 100 images, higher ISO performance better than most compact cameras, Resolution is as good as it gets in compact cameras, very impressive for output size, Good dynamic range (though limited usable headroom in raw files), Very small dimensions for the sensor size, Good...

  • -

    Desaturated and 'flat' JPEG output, Some chroma noise even at base ISO, lots of it at higher sensitivities, Unreliable White Balance (and poor color in low light), Generally very slow, very long read/write and processing times, Unimpressive shutter lag, Continuous mode only allows three shots per...

Sigma DP1 Merrill with 19mm f/2.8 Lens (28mm Equiv)We should start with my recent review of the Sigma DP2 Merrill (DP2M). If you haven't already done so may I suggest that you read it it now before proceeding on this page?

Anyone who pays attention to the compact camera market has had their eyes on the Sigma DP1 for some time now. Ever since the original prototype was unveiled back in 2006, fans have been clamoring over Sigma’s concept of taking a DSLR sensor and outfitting it for a pocket-size digital camera.

While not having all the perks of the newer cameras (image stablization or zoom) Sigma has made what counts is the image quality and without a doubt the DP1x is stunning. Yes, the camera does require some patience but you will be rewarded by the best images ever.

28 January 2014

Yes, this camera does have some shortcomings but only when compared to the latest greatest cameras on the market today. If you are used to shooting film, these shortcomings will be non-existent.

I--like many others--had high hopes for this camera. A (nearly) DSLR sized sensor in a compact body is a very attractive concept, and it is one that I hope and assume will be developed and improved upon by Sigma and other makers.
