Sigma Announces DP1x Compact with Large SLR Sensor

The new Sigma DP1x compact digital camera incorporates a “TRUE II” image processing engine, as used in the Sigma DP2 and SD15 digital SLR. This image processing engine improves the image-processing time and features a new AF algorithm, providing high speed auto focusing, according to the company.

Sigma adds that the user interface has been unified with the DP2 series by changing the Set Up Menu and adopting the QS (Quick Set) button. This provides photographers easier operation of the camera controls when the DP1x is used with the DP2 series, Sigma explains.

The company debuted the DP1 in March 2008 to introduce a high-end compact digital camera featuring the same technology as an SLR, most notably, its use of the same large image sensor found in Sigma’s digital SLR cameras.
