Photography Blog has tested the Sigma DP1s. This compact digital camera from Sigma has a big 14 megapixel Foveon image sensor so it seems that Sigma has created a compact that takes image quality serious. But now that Panasonic and Olympus has released their Micro Four Thirds camera is seems Sigma has got it tougher. Let us hear what the reviewer thinks about the DP1s.

Some key features for the Sigma DP1s camera:
-14.06 megapixel Foveon X3 sensor
-28mm f/4 prime lens
-2.5″ LCD screen
-RAW format support
-External hotshoe

Photography Blog ends up giving the Sigma DP1s an “Above average” rating with 3.5 out of 5 stars. The Sigma camera scores highest on image quality while scoring lower on value, features, ease of use and design. It is able to take pictures of excellent quality, but the camera lacks all the features you can get with Micro Four Thirds camera and on top of that it is quite expensive. The DP1s still seems like an interesting camera if you want the unique Foveon quality on your pictures.
