Sigma DP1 Compact Uses High-End Sensor

Sigma DP1

Develop a 14-megapixel image sensor intended for a high-end DSLR and then use that same sensor in a point-and-shoot. What do you get? You get the Sigma DP1, of course.

The Sigma DP1 is a compact digital camera featuring a 16.6mm F4 lens, with a wide angle field of view equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm film camera.

Its exquisite 14-megapixel Foveon X3 direct image sensor (2652×1768×3 layers) – which powers the Sigma SD14 DSLR camera too – uses three silicon-embedded layers of photo sensors stacked to take advantage of silicon’s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths. This can only mean that the Sigma DP1 can deliver accurate, full color photographs.

Sigma also said the DP1 is equipped with a large 2.5-inch TFT LCD monitor with 100% image preview, making confirmation of composition, focusing and exposure quick and easy.
