Shutterbug has reviewed the Sigma DP1, the $800 digital camera that tries to fit the functionality of a full-size digital SLR into the body of a compact camera.
Here’s what they thought:
“I worked with the DP1 over the course of a few weeks and found image quality to be excellent in both the Fine JPEG and Raw modes. As of this writing there is no Raw converter in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw for CS3, so you have to process the Raw images using the Sigma software. I am told by Sigma that they are working with Adobe to get this straightened out. My advice is to convert using the software and do the rest of the work in your image editor of choice.”
