The Sigma DP1 – A $28 Premium Compact Camera

I often get asked to recommend affordable gear. And the cheaper the better.
So I set out to find a nice premium camera for less than $50. And also to see if it was any good.

If you want something modern you can buy for example the Ricoh or a Fuji here:
Ricoh GRii
Fuji X70
Or why not the Sigma Quattro

    i get that you’re excited, but this camera is not worth 28$ and the average price is around 200$
    you can get LUCKY and get it for less…cool review thank you, but the title is dissapointing (;

      At the same time as mine was sold there was one for $50 and two others for $60 as well. So if you find one or not is totally up to you.
      And if you don’t think its worth $28… well that just means you don’t like photography :)
