The Sigma DP1x features a 9-point Contrast-Detect AF system.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Sigma DP1x and no provision to add one.
