Main Rivals

Listed below are some of the rivals of the Sigma DP2x.

Canon PowerShot G12

Canon PowerShot G12 Review thumbnail

The Canon PowerShot G12 is a serious camera aimed firmly at the well-off amateur or pro looking for a carry-everywhere compact. Building on the success of previous G-series models, for 2010 the G12 principally adds 720p HD video, stereo sound, High Dynamic Range shooting mode, and a DSLR-like front control dial. £539 / €649 / $499.99 is an awful lot of money for a compact with a small image sensor - read our expert Canon PowerShot G12 review to find out if its worth it.

Canon PowerShot S95

The brand new Canon PowerShot S95 compact camera is the more refined successor of last year's S90 model, additionally offering 720p HD video, Hybrid IS technology and in-camera HDR shooting. The same innovative lens control ring, 10 megapixel CCD sensor, fast f/2.0, 3.8x zoom, RAW file support, full range of manual shooting modes, and a 3 inch LCD are all present and correct on the S95. The launch price has also been reduced, making the Canon S95 an even more attractive proposition as a pocketable yet very capable compact. Read our in-depth Canon PowerShot S95 review now.

Fujifilm FinePix X100

The Fujifilm FinePix X100 camera is already one of the surprise hits of 2011, and it hasn't even hit the shops in any great numbers yet. That hasn't stopped us from taking our usual in-depth look at the gorgeously retro X100, with its large APS-C sensor, 35mm fixed focal length lens, and truly innovative hybrid viewfinder.

Leica X1

Leica X1 Review thumbnail

The Leica X1 is a premium camera with a premium price-tag - £1395 / $1995 is a lot to ask for a compact camera, albeit one with a large APS-C sensor, fast f/2.8, 36mm lens and superlative handling. Can the Leica X1 possibly justify its credit-crunching cost of admission? Read our in-depth Leica X1 review to find out...

Nikon Coolpix P300

Nikon Coolpix P300 Review thumbnail

Not everyone wants to carry a camera on their shoulder, something that Panasonic, Canon, and now Nikon have recognised with the release of the Coolpix P300. All three manufacturers offer a pocket compact with full manual controls, pro-level features and good image quality, with the Nikon P300 also adding full 1080p HD video, fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, high-resolution screen and 7fps burst shooting. Are these features enough to elevate the P300 above its main rivals? Read our Nikon Coolpix P300 Review to find out...

Olympus XZ-1

Olympus XZ-1 Review thumbnail

The new Olympus XZ-1 is a serious compact that's aimed at the enthusiast and professional user looking for a small yet capable pocket camera. A relatively large 1/1.63 inch CCD sensor, f/1.8 maximum aperture, 3 inch OLED screen and a full range of manual shooting modes should be enough to get their attention. But can the XZ1 take on the likes of the Panasonic LX5, Samsung EX-1 and Canon PowerShot S95? Read our detailed Olympus XZ-1 Review, complete with full-size JPEG, RAW and movie samples, to find out...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 Review thumbnail

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the long-awaited successor to the ahead-of-its-time LX3, a compact camera that hit the sweet spot for photographers looking for a pocketable alternative to their DSLR. Fast forward two years to 2010, and it's the turn of the new LX5 to appeal to the more experienced prosumer, with a longer 3.8x lens, improved 10 megapixel sensor, AVCHD movies and a tweaked control system all on offer. Read our in-depth Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 review with sample JPEG, RAW and video files now.

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.

Samsung EX1

Samsung EX1 Review thumbnail

The Samsung EX1 (also known as the Samsung TL500) is a new pocket camera for serious photographers, sporting a bright f/1.8, 3x zoom lens, sensible 10 megapixel CCD sensor and a swivelling 3 inch AMOLED screen. RAW shooting, ISO 80-3200, image stabilisation and full manual control complete the EX1's main attractions. Read our Samsung EX1 review to find out if it hits the mark.
