New Sigma compact digital camera: DP1 Merrill
Sigma Imaging has announced its new compact digital camera, the new Sigma DP1 Merrill, which will be available in the UK from mid-September with a suggested retail price of £799.99.
The new camera features a 46 megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor. The full-colour Foveon X3 direct image sensor is said to ensure good resolution and natural rendering as well as a three-dimensional feel. A focus ring and custom Quick Set (QS) mode also improve the user interface.
Foveon X3 sensor
The 23.5×15.7mm full-colour Foveon X3 direct image sensor featured in the Sigma DP2 Merrill incorporates 46 effective megapixels (4,800×3,200×3 layers) and 44 recording megapixels (4,704×3,136×3 layers). The Foveon X3 direct image sensor captures all primary RGB colours at every pixel location with 3 layers.
The camera also features a dual “TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) II” image processing engine, a wide-angle 19mm f/2.8 lens which is said to have the equivalent angle of view as a 28mm (35mm equivalent focal length) lens and has been designed exclusively for the Sigma DP1 Merrill to maximize the sensor performance. It also features a Quick Set (QS) menu which consists of the most commonly used functions and is easily displayed by pressing the QS button, a large volume buffer memory which enables the camera to capture up to seven RAW images per sequence in continuous shooting mode, a “9 point select mode” for autofocus and VGA (640×480) size movie recording.
Accessories include a LH1-01 Lens Hood, VF-11 Viewfinder, EF-140 DG Electronic Flash and SAC-5 AC Adapter.
