The above picture was taken with my DP1.
Concerning about compactness of digital cameras and high quality of pictures, the DP1 and DP2 series of SIGMA are the best choices. But I prefer to use the X10 rather than to use the DP1 now because of the uncomfortable operationality and impractical closeup mode of the DP1. Actually, I recently have many chances to take photos of dishes at the close distance, so I go out with my X10.
Yesterday, the new Sony compact digital camera, RX-100, was announced to be on sale on the next weekend. It has an 1 inch sensor and the high image quality is expected while its size is very compact. It is very attractive one. But I am not so interested in the RX-100 that I buy it; I am rather waiting for the announcement from SIGMA when the DP2 merril is available. When I went home the previous May, my father asked me if I have any digital cameras that I don’t use. I think he wants the digital camera, so I make a plan to buy the RX-100 for my father’s birthday.
Next month, I will start to climb mountains. Beautiful views will wait for us. So I will take my old DP1 for taking the photos of these views.
