Listed below are some of the rivals of the Sigma DP1s.

Canon PowerShot G11

Canon PowerShot G11 Review thumbnail

The PowerShot G11 is the latest version of Canon's compact camera range for prosumers and professionals, offering a DSLR experience in a pocketable body. Interestingly Canon have reduced the number of megapixels on the G11 in a bid to improve image quality at higher ISO speeds, and they've responded to customer feedback by re-introducing the vari-angle LCD that was missing on the previous G10 model. With a price-tag of £569.00 / €659.00 / $499.99, the Canon PowerShot G11 is one of the most expensive digital compact cameras that money can buy - Gavin Stoker finds out if it's also one of the best...

Canon PowerShot S90

The new Canon PowerShot S90 compact camera offers a lot of DSLR functionality in a pocketable format. Support for the RAW format, full range of manual shooting modes, and a fast f/2.0 lens should grab any keen photographer's attention, especially as the Canon S90 can easily slip inside a shirt pocket. This seemingly winning combination of size and features doesn't come cheap though - £449.00 / €519.00 / $429.99 is an awful lot to ask for what is after all still a camera with a tiny image sensor. Gavin Stoker sizes up the Canon PowerShot S90 in our latest expert review...

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR Review thumbnail

The Fujifilm Finepix F200EXR is potentially one of the most revolutionary cameras of 2009. It features Fujifilm's innocuous sounding EXR technology, which rather cleverly turns the Fuji F200 into three cameras in one. The first EXR mode shoots a high-res 12 megapixel picture, the second takes a 6 megapixel photo with less noise, and the third combines two 6 megapixel images taken at different exposures to capture more dynamic range. Does Fujifilm's brave attempt to concentrate on image quality rather than more megapixels pay off? Carry on reading our detailed review to find out...

Olympus E-P1

Olympus E-P1 Review thumbnail

The Olympus E-P1 brings together the image quality and interchangeable lenses of a digital SLR, the video capability of a camcorder, and the size and portability of a point and shoot, all in one compact package. The first Micro Four Thirds model from Olympus is inspired by the popular 1950's PEN series of film cameras, but is very much a product of the new millennium, offering a wealth of up-to-date must-have features. Mark Goldstein finds out if the E-P1 really is all the camera you will ever need in our latest expert review.

Olympus E-P2

Olympus E-P2 Review thumbnail

Olympus have expanded their Micro Four Thirds family with the launch of the E-P2. Heavily promoted in a series of eye-catching adverts fronted by none other than Kevin Spacey, the E-P2 adds a smattering of new features to the existing E-P1. These include an optional electronic viewfinder, two new Art Filters, the ability to record movies in Manual mode, and a sober all-black finish. Gavin Stoker finds out if the Olympus E-P2 really is a camera for everyone in our latest expert review.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Review thumbnail

The new Lumix DMC-GF1 camera seamlessly combines the image quality and features of a DSLR with the handling and ease-of-use of a compact - at least that's what Panasonic is trying to achieve. With a 12 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD, high-definition video and wealth of shooting modes for beginners and more advanced users, can the diminutive Panasonic GF1 live up to all the pre-release hype? Mark Goldstein discovers if this is THE camera of 2009...

Ricoh GR Digital III

Ricoh GR Digital III Review thumbnail

The GR Digital III is the latest version of Ricoh's pocket camera for prosumer photographers. With a fixed 28mm wide-angle lens, high-sensitivity 10 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen and optional optical viewfinder, the Ricoh GR Digital III is certainly a serious camera. Mark Goldstein finds out if the GR Digital III can justify its equally serious price-tag of £529 / $699.

Sigma DP2

Sigma DP2 Review thumbnail

The Sigma DP2 is a compact camera with a difference - at its heart is a large DSLR sensor that delivers better image quality than virtually all other compacts. The successor to the DP1 model has a new 41mm lens, faster operation and a more intuitive user interface, whilst retaining the same 14 megapixel sensor, 2.5 inch LCD screen and RAW file support. We find out if the Sigma DP2 is the right compact camera for you in our latest in-depth review...
