Sigma DP1 Merrill review

 

Sigma's large sensor compact camera with Foveon x3 sensor

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

Better known for its lenses than cameras, Sigma has been producing both compact cameras and DSLRs for decades.

The Sigma DP1 Merrill is a slow, cumbersome, rather unrefined and expensive compact camera that's really only suited to static or slow-moving subjects. Despite all those major misgivings, the images that it produces thanks to the combination of the...
